Besides, aren't you trying to improve your skills by taking a course? The best way to improve is through practice. In fact, that's pretty much the only way to improve your skills.

  • Q: What supplies will I need?

    The full supply list will be made available upon purchase. In general, we will be using water soluble pencils, Golden High Flow Paints, water color paper, and commercial gessobord. You can use water colors but this class will not cover that medium, but it is an alternative if you have no access to Golden High Flow Paints (which are different than their fluid paints). Some areas may not be able to procure gessobords but you can prime your own with wood and several layers of gesso sanded in between layers to get an ultra smooth finish. Note, this is only recommended if you can't purchase the pre-made gessobords from a local supplier or one of the bigger commercial art supply companies.

  • Q: How long will I have access to this course? Is it downloadable?

    Our goal is to have students work at their own pace with out time constrictions pressuring them to finish a class in a few weeks or a few months. All of our classes will have access for a minimum of 5 years barring any unexpected event/disaster. The videos are all streaming, accessible 24/7 but are not downloadable.
