Frequently Asked Questions

  • How much does it cost? When is tuition due?
    $ 45.00 per month for each course medium programs. Membership includes unlimited use of all courses in the chosen medium program. Tuition is automatic, reoccurring every 30 days from the date your payment was processed for the chosen medium program unless you cancel your membership prior to the 30 days.
  • Do you offer a free trial class?
    We offer a free preview video of a step from each one of our introduction courses for you to watch and see if you like the teaching style/method and the audio and video quality. <Add video URL from Youtube> Record intro for this video with Katie. Put together a video with 1 section of clips from each medium program.
  • When can I start?
    Anytime, as soon as your payment is processed you will have immediate access to your chosen medium course program.
  • Do you teach private online classes?
    Due to the amount of online and in-studio students there is not enough time to provide quality instruction for private classes. In the future artist members will be able to register for live limited space workshops to assist them with their current projects, demonstrations of specific techniques, and question and answer sessions. This would be a great time for students to ask a question about how to do a certain technique, mix colors, establish depth and dimension, or any other sticking points they may encounter on their current art projects. <Imbed Wix Bookings>
  • How do your courses work?
    We have level 1 and level 2 challenge courses. Level 1 courses are easier and level 2 courses require more techniques, details, and are more challenging then level 1 courses. The courses listed in each medium program are in order from easiest first and get more challenging as you move down the list of courses. The course videos are broken down into small steps, they can be utilized in a few different ways. Some students choose to watch the entire video first and then watch each step and try the techniques on their own and move on when that step is completed. The course videos are set up for you to pause and rewatch each step if needed and to move at your own pace. It is all up to you to decide what method will work best for you to learn the drawing/painting process and techniques for each course.
  • How long are the courses?
    All courses vary in length; level 1 videos typically are 20 to 40 minutes and level 2 are longer. Oil painting course videos have longer run times and will have weekly breaks in between steps to allow for drying time.
  • Can I do more than one medium program at a time?
    Yes, you can. All you have to do is purchase another medium program and make sure you have the art supplies for the chosen medium.
  • Do I have to get my own supplies?
    Yes, we have made it very easy for you to purchase the supplies we highly recommend and require from a third-party supplier, Dick Blick Art Materials. We have all of our supply kits with our school course programs listed on their website. Links to our school's art supply list on their website are located on the downloadable art supply kit list button for each medium course program on the right side of the screen. If you are located in an area that does not receive shipments from this company, we have included manufacturers information for each item that you can bring to your local art supply store or search online for an art supply store that will ship to your location.
  • Can I use my own supplies?
    We have many years of professional art experience and have extensively tested many art supplies from different manufacturers over the years and have chosen the best products that can be used for beginners to advanced students with excellent results. We highly recommend purchasing supplies from the manufacturers on our art supply list to achieve the desired results in your artwork that are demonstrated in these instructional videos.
  • What mediums do you teach?
    Currently, we teach the following: - Drawing with graphite and pastel pencils and soft chalk pastels - Sketching using graphite pencils - Mixed-media using a combination of several mediums including Pigma micron ink pens - Watercolors - Acrylics - Oils-water-soluble
  • How long does each course take to complete?
    It depends on each student’s comfort, skill level, and pace. Everybody has their own timeline and there is no pressure for completing projects within a certain timeframe.
  • I am a beginner; I do not have any art experience will these courses work for me?
    Absolutely, we start at the very beginning of each project and use a short step by step process demonstrating the use and techniques required for the areas being worked on. The instructor demonstrates the techniques and explains all of the details of the technique through the entire process. We highly recommend starting with the introduction class for the medium program(s) you have chosen and move down from there as the courses are in order from easiest to more challenging.
  • I have a lot of art experience do I have to start at the beginning?
    No, you may start anywhere you like. The courses in each medium program are listed easiest first to more challenging as they move down the list. The importance of selecting a course is that it sparks an interest in you and that you are excited or passionate about the subject and images in the course.
  • Do you have gift cards?
    Yes we have gift cards, they start at $ 15.00 and you can select any amount you would like to gift. <Add in gift certificate link here>
