Tips for Using our eCourse Effectively

• These pdf Modules are interactive, so you will probably be able to type your answers in to the worksheets and save the customized document to your computer. If that is not working for you, you might want to print out the workbook, or at least the fill-in-the-blank workbook pages.

• Skim a section before you start, so you can see where you’re heading.

• Take it at your own pace. Weeks, months, years. Revisit as desired.

• You can work on Modules 3 and 4 at ANY TIME. Really. ANY time. During this process … during your entire life … Rinse. Repeat. The same will go for Modules 7 and 8, when they are released.

• Seriously consider collaborating with others on your Engage Art entry. Find people who bring skills you need but don’t have. We have a whole section on it in Module 4.

• Have Fun! After all, this is your very own, amazing, choose-your-own art-venture!
