What if I don't have talent?
Like learning violin, piano, math, science, and all other subjects in school, art is a skill that's acquired by studying with a Master.
When your coach is world renowned, they can get you to success so much faster than if you tried to figure all this out on your own.
What supplies will I need?
Inside your first module, you'll be given Amazon links to buy the exact materials Masters use. And, Amazon has sale prices and prime members usually get free shipping.
You may have a few of the supplies already and Sandra will tell you the BASIC supplies as well as other tools that are optional.
With Amazon's SALE prices (and FREE shipping for Prime members) you can expect to invest under $100 for basic supplies. The rest of the supplies are only necessary if you have a bigger budget and want to try out some cool tools Masters use.
Is this program for adults or children?
Children need fine motor skills to render realistic drawings. And, children don't tend to be as diligent as adults in completing programs without supervision.
So, to be on the safe side, we recommend Sandra's system for adults.
Most of our students have set aside their art dreams to work or care for a family so it's very common for our Apprentices to be over 50. Our oldest student is currently 97. and her art practice keeps her very vibrant..
(Younger kids can struggle if they don't have fine motor skills yet so we don't recommend this for anyone under the age of 14-15. And, as we said, self-study required maturity that is usually not found in younger folks.
How long do I have access to this program?
We designed this program so you can complete your lessons in 3 months but you'll have access to this content for 6 months so you'll have plenty of time to finish.
If we didn't limit your access to 6 months, there's a good chance these courses would collect dust like the hundreds of other unread books on your shelf. We give you twice as much time as you need but because this college ends (like all colleges), you'll be more motivated to practice and avail yourself of this simple system that can change your art forever.
How long does it take to complete the lessons?
Each video demo ranges from 5-15 (sometimes 20) minutes so you can easily squeeze your drawing time into a designated time slot in each of your days.
The companion workbooks give you written instructions so that both reading learners and visual learners will benefit from the videos and companion written lessons.
As we said in the other FAQ, if you set aside 5-7 hours per week for 3 months, you should be able to complete all the college projects within 12 weeks.
Do you have a payment plan?
Yes, sort of. When you pay with a credit card, you can make monthly payments to your credit card company.
Since we're in the drawing business, we prefer to spend our time creating new courses, so we leave the lending business up to credit card companies.
Do you teach how to draw in color?
Absolutely - it's one of Sandra's specialities... but it's best to master drawing before you tackle color.
Drawing is Grade One - Color Is Grade Two and we all know that a student will do better if they take First Grade first.
Having said that, half way through your college courses, you'll be sent a special price to do some of these same drawings with tonal values and/or colored pencils. .Stay tuned for that.
