How it Works
The Notan workshops can be done in your own time during a five-day period. We work with a weekly pdf and communicate on a shared secret Pinterest board, which is only visible to participants. The Pinterest board is our ‘classroom’. You are invited to introduce yourselves to one another with a photo and a bit about yourself (optional). Then, each Tuesday, for four weeks, you get a pdf e-mail with notes and projects, You need to pin your drawing onto the Pinterest board at any stage, before Sunday night. You can see one another’s work, ‘like’, give and receive comments. It is a warm, friendly virtual workshop.
