Set your plan
Within the classroom for each course, you can see a run-down of the topics covered in each of the modules. All of the content will be available from the moment the course begins, and you can follow the basic course outline in your e-Book.
Before you start any project, we recommend watching all the videos first, so that you are familiar with the content.
In the classroom
As you work through each learning module, you will confirm on the screen that you have completed that stage. You cannot continue to the next video until you have completed each one. All of the courses which you are enrolled in will be shown on the right of the screen, and you can see your progress of completion.
If you have questions, ask them in the Creative forum.
Courses, Modules and Units
Ingrid Creates Arts School curriculum is divided into Courses (For example Porcelain painting) with different course Modules (For example Beginners Daisies and Asters in lustre).
Each Module is divided into Units, covering a different aspect of the overall module theme. At the end of each Unit, you will be asked if you have completed the work, so you can move on to the next Unit. Once you have completed all of the Units, you will receive a certificate after submitting your photo for feedback from Ingrid.
