Skill Building Challenge Cycle 9 Winners Announced!

We would like to take a moment to congratulate the Winner and Honorable Mention of our Cycle 9 Skill Building Challenge. Our Skill Building Challenge entries are judged on the displayed comprehension of the lessons, and (most importantly) the improvement displayed by the internalization of those concepts and application of them over the course of the 4 week challenge. Judging on these criteria gives all students in the online program the chance to participate, and allows us to “level the playing field” for novices and more advanced students.  Cycle 9 also marked a first for our Skill Building Challenges, as the overall structure was modified to better push a student’s skills and have them reach for a more “finished” drawing, utilizing the concepts learned from their video lessons.

Join us in congratulating our Winner and Honorable Mention of our cycle 9 Challenge…
