Did You Know That The Waymarker is Interested In Learning Every Whichaway?.

Practice an Easy Build 1st
The first two lesson conversations and a special navigation run through discussion is scheduled for next week.  The navigation run through will only be held if anyone needs explanation about what menus, tools and add-ons the Waymarker uses for creating storybuild assets.After learning from participants how it goes best last year:

1) This year the Waymarker will offer live tutorial discussions after participants get a chance to work through video and text tutorials on their own. 

See Calendar Often for times, dates and updates http://waymarkerlesson.blogspot.com/
 **Also please complete the Blender Navigation Self-Quiz Survey.

2) After the live discussions that will be recorded when possible, participants who could not attend the meetings will get a chance to hear the audio and exchange information @ Waymarker's new forum (not fancy, but works well to keep information classified and sorted).  Forum members will need to join the Waymarker 88221 Google Plus (Hypergrid) Community before joining the forum to ensure they get notices and postings that may not get to the forums until after live discussions are held.
Then tackle a more challenging build.

3) If you are interested in storybuilding assets, learning about storybuilding in general or are just a beginner, other class presentations/discussions  in strictly beginner Blender and NPC and PMAC animation will be scheduled in the next few weeks.  Instructors Nara Malone and Serene Jewell do a great job of teaching Open Sim builders how to use these resources.

4) Materials, including PDF tutorials, text transcripts for videos, texture images, and Blender files that lead participants directly into th work are available to all Waymarker participants to "study" before live discussions.  It is likely some participants won't need to attend the live discussions or join the forums, but these resources are here if you need them, or you need a nudge to get inspired.  Working and collaborating with others always seem to spur enthusiasm.

5).  As the season continues, notices will be sent out that lesson files are ready to pick up.  If you have time to take a look at the calendar you will see there several weeks of classes already listed.  Click on the tab to see what is needed and directions to meetings.  This season should be well over by carefree days of summer, or for die hards the building days of yet another hypergrid community project.  Whatever reason you have fo get some new learning we hope we can help you in some way.

Special thanks to Open Sim Tutors and Bloggers for their continuous work to teach us what we want and need to know.
