Great question – and yes, you are. Reading the lessons, viewing the videos, and doing the exercises will get you knee-deep into the experience. After you’ve read all the lessons, exercised, and viewed all the videos, think of one (or more) lesson(s) that made a good impression. Now take out one of your earlier art or design works. If you don’t have one, just use one of the images from your phone’s camera, or simply create something on paper with pencil. Modify, copy or create another version of that work, but done through the experience of what you’ve learned from your chosen lesson(s). Next, try it again, but now with insights gained from a different lesson. When finished, compare your revised composition to your original. Then ask yourself, “What’s different here?” It’s very important that you write down your impressions.
