Frequently asked questions and answers
How does it work?
This is an online remote course, which means lessons are live, but taught remotely. Small groups of students work online, together with their teacher.
What if I miss a lesson?
No biggie! You can watch recordings of past lessons and follow the teacher's instructions without missing anything. You will also get access to presentations and links to further resources.
What if I have no skill?
No worries! We work with a lot of students and beginner artists with no prior experience who think exactly that. That is why the groups are small, to allow the teacher to tend to every student. We want you to master whatever technique you are working on, but most importantly, we want you to have fun, and to discover the joy of the creative process and the happiness that it can bring.
What if I have no talent whatsoever?
Nonsense, every person is talented, even you! Because talent isn't something magical; it's the willingness to pursue the creative activity that you enjoy without giving up. Creative drive and diligence are the real secret! You have nothing to worry about – our courses are designed with complete beginners in mind, and soon you will discover your hidden skills and potential which we will hone together.
How many people are on a course?
We keep the online groups small to make sure there is always enough space to answer questions and give feedback to everyone. Usually, there are 10–12 people tops, so the teacher can help and tend to every single student. When working online, the instructor guides the students through every artwork with step by step demonstrations, so everyone can keep up at a smooth pace.
I was horrible at art in school, so what's the point?
There is a point :) Our teachers have a much different, positive approach, with course plans that cover both theory and practice to make sure everyone can do it. And, most importantly, our teachers are professionals who love art with all their hearts, and they want you to love art too, which is why they will guide you to achieve amazing results!
How fast does my internet connection need to be?
If you can comfortably watch YouTube videos or online films, then you're good to go :) Your internet connection should be able to handle our courses.
What if I'm not very tech-savvy?
No need to worry. Our online course interface is really simple and very intuitive. And if you do run into trouble, our admin team is always ready to jump in and help.
What if I can't keep up?
The teacher works slowly, carefully explaining and demonstrating every step, so there is no need to worry. Plus, you can always watch the recordings of past lessons and finish whatever you need.
One needs to practice something from a young age to be any good...
You are never too old for creativity! All you need to do is take the first step and dive into regular creative sessions with our amazing teachers. You'll be surprised at what you can do! :) Our courses welcome people of all ages; it's the creative passion that brings us together.
What if everyone else is much more skilled than I am?
Our courses are designed for complete beginners with no prior experience and our teachers approach every student individually, working through the course plan together, so don't be afraid of falling behind.
What if I need to revisit something after the lesson?
Course materials will be available for the duration of the entire course and a few weeks after the end, and the same goes for lesson recordings – you can watch them right after the lesson, any time during the course, and a few weeks after the course has ended.
I will need to get tons of supplies...
Actually, you won't! Simply buy the course bundled with the supplies we have prepared and dive right into the creative world without having to do all the shopping yourself. It's that easy!
What if my internet connection goes down?
All live lessons are recorded, and you can watch them later, so don't worry about missing anything.
Who are your teachers?
Our teachers are the best! They are nice, friendly, skilled, experienced, and, most importantly, they truly love art.
Are we getting homework and grades?
No :) The course is designed with the allocated time in mind. If you want to work on your own outside of the lessons, we have a list of resources and inspiration for extra work. And don't expect to get graded, we're not an elementary school :) Our teachers will always walk you through every step of the way and share tips and tricks in a friendly, relaxed atmosphere.
What if I'm all thumbs?
If you do have a desire to paint, draw, or create any other type of art, then all the thumbs in the world can't stop you! What does it mean anyway? That your fine motors skills are lacking? That's something you can improve with practice. That you have a mental block from childhood? We can work together to remove it. That you don't have enough patience? You can learn it. And for some techniques, precision isn't that important anyway. Just give it a go! You'll be surprised at how much you can achieve on the very first lesson :)
I don't want to do boring exercises.
That's why fun is an important aspect that we keep in mind for all our courses! We promise that boredom is the last thing you can expect. How could anyone get bored when there is so much to achieve and such beautiful things to create? Our teachers’ energy and friendly attitude are guaranteed to make the creative process fun and exciting!
I already own some supplies. Can I only buy what I'm missing from you?
Currently we only sell supplies in packages, but our prices are very competitive, so it might still be worth getting the entire package from us and then expand it with whatever you might need in the future.
