I'm interested in your year long mixed media + collage art course called Fodder School. Should I start with Fodder School 1, Fodder School 2 or Fodder School 3?
For all of the information about Fodder School, click here. For the answer to the question, read on . . .
Each year of Fodder School has different teachers and different projects-it is all amazing!
Each month of Fodder School is a stand alone course, so there are no prerequisites. But, the more you do Fodder School months, the more leftovers you have, and those leftovers get incorporated into the new months, so there is an element of connectivity, but not in the traditional sense. It's more like "the more you do, the better and better it gets." People who do more months of content level up their skills, but there is chronological order to the lessons.
So, Fodder School 1 is not a prerequisite for FS2. FS2 is not a prerequisite for FS3.
I recommend choosing which Fodder School to start with based on your answer to one question:
Do you want to work on each month with a group of artists from around the world who can share their work on Instagram and in our private Facebook groups (social media sharing is optional, not required!)? Are you looking for a lot of social media interaction with other FS participants? If yes, the answer is FS3 because the first new lessons begin dropping on October 1, 2023 for that year long experience.
You can also join Fodder School 2 because we still have 3 more months when those lessons are "live dropping" into that classroom.
If you would rather work at your own pace (you can still be very active in a Facebook group, but you won't have the motivation of keeping up with a large group), then I recommend either Fodder School 1 or Fodder School 2, one is not better than the other.
If you have a lot of time for crafting, and you want enough content to keep you busy each week, sign up for all of the Fodder School years. Keep up with the current Fodder School lessons as they release each month, and then work through FS1 and/or FS2 at your own pace.
I hope that helps!
