Drawing as Self-Discovery: 5 Ways to Start

About Course

Thanks to a growing number of software programs, it seems as if anyone can make a webpage. But what if you actually want to understand how the page was created? There are great textbooks and online resources for learning web design, but most of those resources require some background knowledge. This course is designed to help the novice who wants to gain confidence and knowledge. We will explore the theory (what actually happens when you click on a link on a webpage?), the practical (what do I need to know to make my own page?), and the overlooked (I have a page, what do I do now?).

Throughout the course there will be a strong emphasis on adhering to syntactic standards for validation and semantic standards to promote wide accessibility for users with disabilities. The textbook we use is available online, “The Missing Link: An Introduction to Web Development and Programming” by Michael Mendez.

This course is worth it if you really want to become an illustrator for childrens books and
love Adolfos style. Adolfo goes through techniques, his process and also talks through what
influences him. Something that I've learnt is, how to create my own style and to trust my
intuition, even when I think an idea isn't worth exploring - If my intuition is saying yes, then
it probably is. Great course and one I'm going to be going over again with different projects
in mind. Thanks Adolfo!

The design of the course of laying each layer of understanding before getting to techniques is awesome. I bet most people will just blow through this course and forget it. They're doing themselves a disservice. Spend time with it, go back to it, master it. This is THE meta-skill to master.
