About The Idea Development Workshop

What if there were a process to building great ideas? Sterling Hundley’s creative work and teaching methodology have become synonymous with intelligent, powerful ideas. This course is designed for artists wanting to create unique, personal artwork that pushes visual problem solving beyond the illustrated cliché. Learn the difference between specific methodologies for developing narrative illustrations that tell compelling stories and conceptual solutions that communicate complex and challenging communication.

The Structure

Each of our workshops consist of three Saturday sessions and 9 hours of interactive content. Using Adobe Connect, you and instructors interact, chat, share work, and live stream traditional and digital art. You can select from three unique learning packages. The Basic Kit, Office Hours, and Mentorship packages offer increasing levels of personal guidance and one-on-one instruction. This online course will be taught live through lectures, demonstrations and assignments. Students will be given an assignment each week to put to use what they’ve learned during the course. Students electing to participate in live reviews will receive direct feedback on their specific problems which will serve as examples for the rest of the class.
