Default BI's First Ever Graphic Tutoring! *Closed!*

*Closed until further notice. Maura and I are going to be too busy these next few weeks.
G R A P H I C
T U T O R I N G ! !


A few of us are starting a school-like, tutoring program. This program is obviously free. We're structuring it in different categories, based on what you're interested in, and the level at which you can complete it.


The courses are as follows;


Icons

Signatures
- the picture based ones, like mine currently is.
Blends

Typographies


The courses are offered as a Beginner course and an Intermediate level. We'll be adding an advanced course as members 'graduate' from Intermediate. (Twice normally, or once with tutor recommendation, to take a course again, you must fill out a second application, and post new examples)


Beginner courses may have 15 members, Intermediate may have 10.
There will be 4 lessons for each class, of which you must complete. This will add up to your grade at the end of the course.

Also, we'd prefer that only people with graphics programs sign up. You won't be able to do your homework with online programs, sorry. (photoshop, gimp, paint.net, photofiltre, paint shop pro, etc; are the allowed programs)

The sign ups-make sure you've read the above;


Preferred Name;

Preferred Classes; (in the order you want them, you'll only get two)
1.
2.
3.
4.
Program you use;
Examples of your work. If you leave this field blank, you will not be considered.

Once you're assigned to a class, you're required to complete the current lessons that have been written, and you must check back to see new assignments. Tutors will VM you, if they have time. It is not their responsibility.

Homework should be posted on the homework thread, in Beary Creative. Please quote the assignment, and tutor with the completed homework.
