With the oil and watercolour classes Dennis and I have been using different methods to group the classes.
I have been creating a new board for each class, then members can create their own topic under that board where they post their painting from the class. This means that each class has many topics with individual paintings  in them.

Dennis has been creating a new topic for each class. Then everybody posts their painting from the class in that topic. This means that everybody's paintings from that class can be found in one single topic.

Take a look at the difference HERE (Oil) and HERE (Watercolour) as well as on the board index

Which method do you prefer?

Nolan,
Each has its good and bad points, however overall I prefer the Oil method.  Makes it easy to find my own, but I can still see what others are doing as well.   O0

For educational reasons I prefer the water colour way.

Nolan,

I like Dennis's method too. Lesson by lesson.

Did you guys all remember to place your vote at the top? Seems the Combined (Dennis) version is a bit low compared with the comments.  :confused:
Cheers, Val

I like Dennis way best, because if I am purchasing a  replay lesson I can go back and read all that has been said/done before my time.  I don't have to open up teen dozen members files.  I can go to the source right from the beginning and learn anything that might be pertinent to the class I have purchased.   I am also able to see many members attempts at the lesson and be forewarned of any stumbling blocks I may have to watch out for.

I recently purchased classes that were given a couple of years ago, I was able to go straight to the forum under Dennis' method and find the continuous/ongoing thread.  Dennis' method means that know matter when one starts classes you will get the whole picture in one fell swoop!!!   Thanks you , Dennis>       I am still a big fan of Oil painting.

Wow, being reasonably new to all this I find there are so many avenues to read about so many different things, I have found it abit overwhelming and am not quite sure yet where to look for what yet . I look around most days and find something new each time.  :-\

Thank you May Lynn, these are exactly my educational reasons. ;)

Yes Val, I've voted, although it would have been easier to give the right vote if it was mentioned as "Dennis' way" or 'Nolan's  way"
 I guessed the combined way is Dennis' way so I've voted for that, but I agree, the results don't match the comments.
