    Forumite Classes, 2019

    They usually give a few weeks with the class list published before registration. Certain popular classes will sell out in the first few minutes... others, you have time for. They also added more classes last year some time after registration opened.

    I think I'd be up for a shift helping out at the paint n take area. Will have to see what I pick for classes of course, but I was planning to schedule more downtime this year.

    ReaperCon 2019 -- Classes I Would Take

    This is how the Gen Con Paint n Take was run years ago (I'm not sure how it is now, I haven't been there in several years :( ). The tables were arranged in a long U with volunteer instructors in the middle and the paint-n-takers around the outside. The volunteers handed out minis and helped set up paint areas, managed water and paint needs and gave basic instruction if desired. If someone just wanted to sit and paint for a bit, that was cool too. I could see this as a 'gateway' class for new instructors too. Perhaps the volunteers, who want to see if teaching is for them, go through a short seminar on how to teach the Learn to Paint kit (so minimal new material to be developed and well, sales pitch) at the beginning of the con. Then they volunteer to teach for say a 30 min drop-in seminar at the U. Then the drop-in students can stay and work with the volunteer instructor standing by, or leave if they choose. This could be located near Artist Alley so the volunteer instructor can act as a liason for students wanting more advanced instruction (i.e. help for introverts) and can get experienced instructor assistance if they're stuck. The more I think about this idea, the more I like it. This could also be a spot to get advice on which classes to take to match skill level. The basic terminology issue could be a part of this and handouts and (mini) posterboards could tie in here too. Someone, please shoot this idea down before I hurt myself.
  13. Playing with Secret Weapon Miniatures weathering pigments (finally...) Making a rusty wrought iron fence is really fun! I think I need to add a few more shadows to make the bits pop. I'm pretty happy with this, but C&C welcome and appreciated!
  14. Along the lines of how different personalities select courses. I give myself a 'Tracks' as my goal for the con. For example this year was OSL and Faces. OSL I've tried and failed at, Faces are my favorite and I want to go from getting 'wow!' to 'Holy hell!' reactions. So I selected 2 OSL and 4 Faces/flesh classes, and placed them as much as I could in order of progression. (I also took 2 others cause I really wanted to.) With the OSL classes on separate days so I had time to ponder. People frequently ask how I can handle so many classes. This is it, in my mind I took 4 classes, because most of them built on the others. I also do this to get several artists' perspectives. I don't know if this will be really useful in this discussion, but themes or tracks is another method used to organize or group related subject matter over a convention.
  15. Unfortunately, the classes are tagged (beginner, intermediate, advanced) and most of the descriptions indicate requisite skills. Prerequisite classes cant be listed, its too complicated. Sigh. I dont have a good answer...
