How Classes Work

How does an online art class work? It's very simple! It all starts from your home via your computer...
  • After purchasing the online art class of your choice, (within a few hours) you will be instructed via email how to enter your online classroom. You will then have access to the supply sheets and class materials in your classroom.
  • Lessons, instructional videos and class forums are all open for your convenience 24/7.
  • You may download the supply sheet, and the written lessons, gather your supplies, paint along with the class videos and start your painting in the comfort of your own home.
  • Work at your own pace and in your timetable.
  • At any stage you may upload a photograph of your 'work in progress' to your classroom forums and ask for helpful tips and feedback from the art teacher.
  • As you continue learning to paint you may do this and ask questions as often as you need to. There is no limit to feedback. 
  • We're always here to help and provide feedback for you. 
Flexible, Fun and Full of Feedback!

Our instructors are artists who take what we do seriously. We are often right on the other side of your computer screen to help you receive a response to your questions quickly.

You will enjoy getting feedback, and art critiques in the classroom forums. (Only if you want them) Our teachers love what they do. Providing helpful detailed critiques to you, or giving a simple thumbs up, will help you move on to the next stage of the lesson and help you grow as an artist.

Online art classes can be very interactive and you can also ask for input from other students. There's nothing like painting with like minded folks and you will have fun doing so too! You will even make new friends when you share your painting experiences and interact in forums and other classes.

Watch your confidence and skills grow as you receive encouragement and valuable feedback from experienced instructors who are there to help you every step of the way.
