What is Visual Education? Q&A with Karl Taylor
Where did Karl Taylor Education go?
It’s still here! It just has a new identity: Visual Education.
We may have a new name (plus a snazzy new logo and colour scheme), but our mission remains the same. All of our classes, replays and resources are exactly where they were before.
Are you retiring, Karl?
Has Karl Taylor Education been bought by a giant, faceless mega-corporation?
Why have you changed your name?
What’s the deal with the new logo?
It’s inspired by that simplest of visual learning tools, the shape sorter. By playing with shape sorters, children develop their earliest awareness of colour, form and space – fundamental elements of visual art.
The logo represents our commitment to teaching all aspects of the visual arts, from the fundamental tools and essential principles to the most complex concepts and advanced techniques. And our beautiful gradient colour scheme acknowledges the science and art of colour, light, contrast and motion essential to all forms of visual art.
What is Visual Education exactly?
Our platform is designed for all visual artists – including you! Whether you’re just getting started or you’re already deep into a professional career, you’ll find a vast amount of useful information and instruction to help you improve.
The world of digital media has changed significantly over the last decade. Gone are the days of being ‘just’ a photographer. To really thrive, the visual artists of today – and tomorrow – need expertise and experience in all aspects of visual media, including video, CGI, post-production, and more.
At Visual Education, we continue to broaden and deepen the range of courses we offer to serve the diverse needs of our subscribers.
Do you still care about photography?
Absolutely. I love photography as much today as I did when I first decided to devote my life to it. Photography has always been at the heart of what we do, and it will continue to be something we specialise in.
But to succeed in today’s competitive marketplace, contemporary visual artists need expertise in multiple disciplines. And that’s exactly what we offer.
What does all this mean for my membership?
Nothing you need to worry about. Your subscription remains exactly as it was before we launched our new brand. Monthly and Annual Plan subscriptions will renew as normal. Subscription payments will appear on your bank statements as ‘Visual Exposure Limited’, just as before.
Most importantly, you’ll continue to enjoy full, unlimited access to all of our classes and resources for as long as your subscription remains active – or indefinitely in the case of Lifetime Plan subscribers.
Have your prices gone up?
No. We’ve made no changes to the prices of our subscription plans. The cost of your subscription is the same now as it was before we launched our new brand.
Have your social media handles changed?
