Wake up and smell the crayonsTo me, illustrating recipes is playing around with all the things I love: food, cooking and drawing. I want to share the fun and inspire you to draw your favourite food too. Starting June 1st 2015
It's a 4-week online group workshop, in which you will learn about shapes, colours, materials, drawing/collaging, composition, lettering and creative ideas. Each week, a new lesson is available on the course website.
The first part is on 1 June 2015, the last part on 22 June. The workshop material on the website will be accessible for 3 more weeks after.
You will be doodling, sketching, drawing, painting and/or collaging your way towards the final assignment: submitting a recipe to the fabulous website They Draw & Cook!
How does it work?
For 4 weeks, once a week you will find a new post on the workshop website which includes instructions, tips, step-by-step video- and photo-tutorials, and assignments. You'll be able to share your work with your class mates and learn from each other as we go.
Who is it for?
Foodies, crafters, drawing addicts, creators, doodlers, chefs, kitchen kings and queens, imaginators, food lovers and even magicians!
|my illustrated recipes have been published in several magazines|
- I can’t cook. Can I still join the workshop?
Yes, of course. Nobody has to taste your burnt casserole if you don’t want them to. When you create a gorgeous recipe for a casserole dish – they can go make it themselves!
- What recipe do I use?
In the course, a list of recipes is provided, so you can choose from those. Or perhaps you have a favourite recipe that you want to illustrate.
-My grandma’s recipe book is full of cool stuff. Can I use that?
Yes, by all means! Let’s share those old fashioned recipes with the world.
-Can I submit more than one recipe?
Sure, why not? If you feel like it, you can draw as much as you like!
-Is it worth the money?
Of course it’s totally worth it! What else do you expect me to tell you? Seriously though: If you invest about 2 hours a week, we’ll all have 4 weeks of fun with a result to be proud of, and a recipe that will be published on one of the coolest websites on earth: TheyDrawAndCook.
-How much time will I need for the workshop?
Take about 2-3 hours each week to work focused, and you’ll be getting fun results.
-How will I share my works-in-progress?
Simply snap a picture of your work or even better, scan it.
On the course website, all participants will be sharing ideas, works in progress, questions ad suggestions. No one else accept for your peers can see the posts, all doodles, drawings and designs stay in our online class room.
-How will I get feedback from you?
This workshop is self-led. Through the videos and step-by-step instructions, by experimenting and practicing, you can be able to create your own illustrated recipes, without additional help. On the course website, you can upload your work, and see the work of your class mates as well. That can give you new ideas and inspiration, you can comment on each other's art and learn together and from each other
The Workshop starts June 1 2015, and will be running for 4 weeks. After that, the workshop website will be accessible for 3 more weeks, in case you want to catch up (get it? Ketchup!) on things.
