Exploring Color 2

Exploring Color 2 Online Course Framework

  • The class, Exploring Color 2,  is divided into four lessons; each lesson has a corresponding assignment and three images can be submitted for each assignment. Cheryl Machat Dorskind will critique the images and provide a video critique for each assignment. Cheryl is known for her in-depth and insightful critiques. Videos critiques are at least 15 minutes in length and are created in the software platform of your choice (Adobe Lightroom, Adobe Photoshop, or Adobe Elements). 
  • The one-2-one class structure enables the student to work at their own pace and work/life schedule.
  • Cheryl Machat Dorskind can determine a calendar (as some people work best with deadlines) or a student can choose to work and submit each or the four assignments in a more organic manner.
  • Exploring Color 2 lessons are sequentially designed and will be sent as pdfs. Assignments are critiqued approximately seven days upon submission of images. Images can be sent for critique by email, dropbox or google drive. RAW files and psd files with layers can be shared via dropbox or Google Drive to further enhance the critique and lessons.
  • In addition to the lessons, assignments, and video critiques, students are entitled to email access which creates an exceptional one-to-one learning environment. The communication and class are conceived to create a virtual experience of connectivity and inspiration.

“I just wanted to thank you for another wonderful class. I have to confess that each week, when I read the new assignment, my first reaction was mild panic and a deep certainty that I would not be able to produce anything worthwhile that fit within the parameters you had set. But before I knew it, the ideas started to flow, and I quickly became obsessed (no, that isn’t too strong a word!) with exploring the possibilities. I can honestly say that the photos I produced in response to your assignments (in this class and in All About Color) are among my favorites. Thanks for bringing out a creative side I didn’t know I had!”

“Cheryl, Your critiques are poetic…I enjoyed this class tremendously. I really felt pushed and challenged in a great way. I’ll be back for your next class; Until then I plan on going through all the lesson plans again and glean all I can from them. I’d like to especially thank you for your thoughtful critiques of the class photos. I appreciate how you used critiques to re-enforce and illustrate the lessons, and I learned a lot from them–you also have a way with words that makes them a joy to read! Take care and thanks.”

“I was thinking about you because of “all the color” my eyes behold since your course. Yesterday, I purchased a vivid and colorful flower bouquet…it exemplifies “fauve” colors.  I have never purchased this type of bouquet…as you know by now, I surround myself with peaceful, mostly monochromatic colors.

Well, I must tell you that the colors truly lifted me…as I looked at them, my heart filled with joy…So, dearest Cheryl, the benefits I derived from your course photographically speaking are wonderful.  Due to my experiences in the past few months, the benefits I derived personally are immense.

Thank you for sharing your love and passion for color with me.”

“Cheryl, Thank you so much for your comments and suggestions. The last eight weeks and particularly the last four have been exceptional for me. I have particularly appreciated the challenging assignments that you gave us each week. After an initial panic each week, I found myself mulling over each assignment for several days and then planning my response. Somehow that seemed to free me even more when I began taking pictures. Most of my favorite shots evolved as I began shooting. Also, I really enjoyed reading your critiques. I learned a lot by understanding what you saw that made the picture work and from your ideas about how to improve it. I am truly sorry to see the courses end as I saw my skills and my creativity expand each week.”
