This self-paced course contains both written instructions and many videos to create "Stella Nova". All project documents are PDF files that can be downloaded, while videos must be viewed through the course.
The written instructions will guide you through the steps needed to build and assemble the star by using photos in each step. There is a lot of interaction between the written instructions and the videos - they are definitely meant to be used together (see the Overview video below).
As a designer, I find it's often difficult to describe or photograph all the steps when creating structured pieces, and that's where the videos are fantastic! Students can watch how it’s done, and ask questions in the Discussion, just as if I was in the classroom and giving a demo. Plus, the videos are always there as reference, simply because you've enrolled in the course... What could be better than that?
The video below highlights key pages in the written instructions, while showing the interplay between them and the videos.
