I did it! Oh, happy dance!
Last week I turned in my final drawing, took my final (yes – a final exam!), and submitted my peer reviews – and this week my certificate arrived!
When I decided to take the course, I had a moment where I thought “what have I done? I don’t have time for this!” But I’m so glad I did it anyway. It helped me refine my art processes, gave me more depth into plant and animal anatomy, and provided motivation to continue even after the course is done.
I took the course through EdX, but it’s taught by the faculty at the University of Newcastle, Australia. More info here.
Below is my final assignment and some of my work throughout the course.
