When you sign up for the course you will begin to receive emails on a regular basis, a bit like getting a magazine. Each email links to a lesson, where you will find
an audio introduction to the lesson
pages of clear instructions to print off and keep
video clips to show you exactly how it’s done
Just listen to the audio, print off the pages, watch the video and follow along. Each lesson builds on the one before, so you grow in confidence as you go along, and you will soon be amazed at how fast you are learning.
The important thing is to actually do the projects. The courses are very practical and you will learn by doing.
Because the course comes to you in regular instalments, you will find yourself wanting to paint along with each lesson and the excitement of learning will be kept up. I can guarantee you will learn to paint with these regular lessons! And if you get stuck, you can even email me at any time with problems or questions.
Take your Time
Finally, you can take the courses at your own pace. You don’t have to keep up, or you can choose to go faster! You can choose to take lessons on a weekly basis or every two weeks, depending on how much time you have available. And you can also pause them for a while if you need to. Each lesson takes between 2 and 4 hours to complete.
