I am so happy to have taken the Foundation class.
Sabina is a truly a great teacher. She doesn’t skimp on sharing her techniques, her knowledge and her experience offering personal feedback on each assignment and encouraging her students in a down-to-earth, practical way.
She takes you through the process of coming up with an idea, doing research, producing enough variations of drawings to create a set or collection, processing in Illustrator and selling your work.
One of the best advice she gave went a long the lines of: none of that “practicing more” until you’re ready. You draw, you process, you package, you sell.
I quickly learned that if you tend towards self-deprecation, you really shouldn’t bring that into the classroom, this class, apart from being content rich, really encourages you to create a revenue stream from your drawings and does not let you entertain your insecurities.
If you have creative energy and you’ve been trying to do something more abitious with your drawings I can’t recommend Design Garden’s Foundation class enough.
