ReaperCon 2019 -- Classes I Would Take

Recommended Posts

Those cases they sold last year (the clear plastic box with a handle on top) would be perfect for storing something that needed to be transported while drying.

Would those be the X-Cases from Active Mind Games?

Shhhh....!  I think we are talking him into it.

Ok. so this is what I have come up with.  The class will demo step by step how to get to this end result.  I will discuss other ways to get similar effects using different materials that I have played with and show completed pieces using other methods.  attendees will get hands on practice each step along the way.  I have figured out how to teach it and skip drying times as shown on cooking shows.  "after that dries, it will look like this", hand out a premade dried base to each student that they will use to do the next step

I have a question for the people who have already attended: how many classes would be a good amount to try to attend? I am thinking maybe two a day. Is that too ambitious? Or do people take three a day, or more? Thanks!

I wouldn't try more than 1 a day total. There's a LOT going on, and there's only so much your poor brain can take in. Plus you'll want time to take the tour, do some shopping, hanging out with friends, eating, playing games, etc.

No more than 2 per day would be my advice. That's what I was told by the old timers when I went for the first time, and it turned out to be good advice IMO.

I tend to agree with @Crowley, although I might say you could do two a day on one or two days.

 

I did two or three classes every day during my first Reapercon, and I almost didn't get to do the factory tour. I also only played one game the whole weekend. And the classes were great, but also the stuff I learned congealed into a giant mud-colored mass of semidry paint inside my brain. I was exhausted and only got about a third of what I would have if I'd only taken one class a day most days.

 

The next time I go, I'm likely to aim for two classes on Friday and one or zero classes the rest of the weekend, just to ensure plenty of playing, painting and purchasing time.

I also recommend the 1 to 2 classes per day routine.  That is if you want to engage in any of the other activities.  I do know people who go only for the classes and do as many classes as they can schedule.  If you are used to drinking knowledge from a firehose and will actually retain it, then that might be for you.  I like to play games and hunt through the melt table and talk to the artists and hang out with new and old friends nad shop the parts bins and...and....and...and.

Personally, I don't decide how many classes I will take until after I've seen the list of classes, when they are scheduled, and how much each class costs.

 

Yes, there is a lot of stuff going on, but I've found there is usually plenty of time to squeeze everything in.  Not sure if you've been to any other conventions before, but in my experience the larger the event the more of a plan you should have going in.
