A good guide of where to begin at Bold School is to follow the categories on the Bold School website of Basecamp, Bold Color Bootcamp, and the Revolution. These roughly translate into Beginner, Intermediate, and Experienced levels of artwork.
Before you begin Bold Color Bootcamp, we do suggest that you have a good understanding of your tools and the medium as the course does not cover those in-depth. This course does not require any experience with portraits or color theory. It will take you through the foundational concepts of both.
The majority of Bold Color Bootcamp focuses on how to paint using abstract color. If you need to work on your painting foundations, you can purchase the paint and brushes and spend some time learning the basics of acrylics via free YouTube Channels. You might also begin with one of our Basecamp level courses, such as Bold Color Primer. Bold Color Bootcamp will be available when you’re ready to begin as it is instant access and self-paced.
