  • So what's all this about then?to top

    Camp Pikaland is a complete art/craft, illustration and indie business educational experience in an informal online setting that is tailored to artists, illustrators and designers who are in various stages of their careers. We aim to make online learning easy, accessibly and affordable!

    At Camp Pikaland, we believe that education is not limited to the four walls of an institution. We believe that education can take place no matter where you are, and that location should never matter in the pursuit of knowledge!

  • What is the idea behind Camp Pikaland?to top

    Hi there! My name is Amy of Pikaland (a daily blog that focus on illustration and art) and I started Camp Pikaland after realizing that there are many students out there who aren’t able to learn syllabuses that they want — either because it wasn’t made available to them, or the cost associated with it, or in my case, it was a case of geography. Camp Pikaland was set up after realizing that there were a lot of other teachers who might benefit from having one place to share their skills with a global audience.

    I’m a firm believer in power of community and collaboration, and Camp Pikaland will be the first of its kind to offer creatives and artists a place to go to for their learning needs. From creative thinking to art techniques, Camp Pikaland will offer a curated series of courses and classes for a global audience.

    Anyone from anywhere! As long as you have an internet connection, a PC/Mac computer and time to invest in getting the best out of the classes.

  • What's the difference between a workshop and a self-study class?to top
