I was wondering something. Since there are quite a few educational videos regarding (concept) art available there must be people that use them. I know MB has some great video's and there are others amongst them.
I actually don't know how to optimize them for my needs. I mean, I know there are some that take notes throughout the whole video. But I was wondering what you take note of. I find it fun to watch and learn from the professionals, but all I do is watch. And by doing so I have some difficulties using their knowledge in my artwork.
I know taking notes is important. I do it all the time in school during classes like Art history or Pedagogy (I'm attending a fine art and design teacher training education). But those are theoretical classes and it's more easy because it's all theory. The educational DVD's are both: Practical and theoretical. I haven't took any notes during my practical classes so I'm clueless what to write down.
I was wondering how you do it. What do you write down and how do you use it. Do you learn it by heart or do you keep it next to you when drawing/painting. I would love to hear from you.
(Don't know if this is in the right forum though. It's about art and education as well....I hope I didn't mess up)
