The GREAT NEWS about your membership is that you can access all the lessons immediately and work through them at your own pace. There's no need to wait for anything or anybody else.

As far as the Monthly LIVE Classes, because they happen so regularly, one is never too far away. And if you happen to miss one or two, you can always watch the recorded versions when you have a chance! That's one of the incredible bonuses of membership!

The short answer is no. The vast majority of what is foundational to all painting mediums. So, if you wanted to use oils, for instance, you would find all the main principles are totally applicable to you, but there would just be some differences in technique as the mediums have different properties.

The longer answer is that while you COULD use a different medium, there are SO many reason to paint with acrylics!

  1. Water Cleanup: Acrylic paints clean up easily with water. You will never need to expose yourself or others to special solvents or thinners when you are using acrylic paints.
  2. Fast Drying:I love the fact that I can touch my paintings after a short time and not worry about getting wet paint on myself or what's around me. This makes it much easier to store and transport paintings without all the headache you'd have if they were still wet. Also, when I want to make a change to a painting I can do it quickly.
  3. Super Versatile:Acrylic paints can be applied to almost any surface because they adhere so well. They can also be applied very thin and transparent or very thick and impasto-like without having to worry about rules like "thick over thin" because of their quick drying properties. Acrylic paintings are easy to frame because they don't need to be protected with glass.
  4. Cost Effective:Acrylic paints are fairly inexpensive when compared to other mediums. This means that you can paint and practice with freedom without being too concerned about cost.
  5. Travel Easily:Because they are non-toxic and don't require fancy thinners, you can travel the world with your acrylic paints and never worry about boarding a plane with hazardous materials.

Yes, yes, yes! 

We are happy to say we've had many people with little to no experience come through our instruction! We will walk you through each step of the painting process, starting with what supplies you want to have and why. You will be able to see paintings come together from start to finish and never miss anything because you can pause, stop & rewind as much as you need!

Absolutely, yes! 

Not only will you be able to be refreshed in the foundational practices that are of great help to every artist, whether beginner or advanced, but you will get an insider look at the secrets both Jed and Dianna have discovered in their 55+ years of painting. Plus, you will get all of the insights they've gained from their own ongoing learning as they have taken myriads of workshops from other master artists.
