Welcome to season #2 of the BK MOSS experience.

MOSS (short for Moment of Stillness) invites you to slow down and observe the world around you. It is a 5-week gentle guidance by Frido that will help you to learn ways to capture various moments of your day using a variety of drawing mediums. You can use this online course to learn how to draw objects, environments, or scenes around you or follow along to be inspired to add personal elements to your journal or planner pages.  We hope you enjoy MOSS's intimate and relaxing atmosphere and feel more comfortable adding personal imprints to your analogue journey. 

How this course works // For five weeks starting on May 3rd, a new episode (about 30-40 minutes) will be shared on the online course platform. Each episode offers different ideas to capture your everyday life uniquely. Once they are released, you will have access to the contents, so you can always return to the lesson as you would like. Join us to explore the world with your pen and paper.

If you are interested in browsing how MOSS online course works, you can try out MOSS Season #1, which is offered to the community as a gift.

About Frido // Frido is the German Bauhaus half of the partnership at Baum-kuchen, taking a lead role in the creative and visual direction of Baum-kuchen. He has 20+ years of experience teaching design, creativity, and visual communication at ArtCenter College of Design.

Through these moments of stillness and observation, he feels a sense of connection to the world around him.
