How do the lessons work?

1. Art supplies

This course requires you to have a computer with Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Illustrator installed and working, and a functioning mouse.

Next, you will need to have two screens – one to work on and one to follow the lesson. You can use a laptop with an extra monitor, or a computer with two monitors, for instance. The screen doesn’t really matter. 

Two screens are necessary to get the best course experience. The simplest way to do that is by simply connecting an extra monitor to your laptop. Two monitors are a standard in the world of graphic design.

Below you can find the list of supplies needed to complete the course.

2. Technical issues

You need a functioning computer with a stable internet connection to participate in online courses. A screen of at least 12” is recommended to make sure you can see all the details clearly. Don’t use a smartphone to watch the lessons – the screen size is too small to deliver the intended experience and lesson quality.

We will ask you to download a couple of free apps designed for comfortable online lessons before the start of the course. Have no fear, all details and simple installation guides will be provided to make sure everyone can do it.

3. Online course

The courses are designed for complete beginners and intermediate artists. In the video, your teacher will create their own work step-by-step, explaining all the moves.

Every lesson starts with a short and interesting theoretical introduction. For every lecture, you will find informative presentations packed with valuable content to enhance your learning journey. There will also be small practical exercises, which are followed by the gradual creation of beautiful artworks.

4. Don't worry about missed lessons

You can choose how much time you will spend on the course and your work. Videos are available for you to watch back again. So you can work at your own pace and on your own time. The slides and other links will also be available to you.

5. How long is the course?

There are 8 lessons and a final bonus lesson at the end. Each lesson is 2 hours long. 

In total, you’ll get 18 hours of amazing lessons with the best teachers, as well as tips, references to further reading, and other materials.

6. How much is it?

The price of the course is for 13 very detailed lessons from a video recorded by a professional tutor, including teaching materials, a database of lessons to be watched again for one year, and other benefits. You can also choose the option of chat support from the tutor, who will be online twice a week.

Price for an online course with feedback support is £190.

Price for an online course without feedback support is £140.

7. What else do I need?

To get the best experience, make sure you have enough space and a good light source (a desk lamp, at least), a desk, a chair.

As for the internet connection, one that can play YouTube videos well is more than enough. No special computer is needed – if it doesn’t lag too much during daily use, like web browsing or watching films online, you’re good to go!

Draw Place Frequently Asked Questions

How does it work?

This is an online video course, which means that you have video recordings of the course led by a professional tutor. You can watch the recording and do the assignments any time

What if I miss a lesson?

No biggie! You can watch video 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. 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.

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 video 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.

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! 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 I need to revisit something after the lesson?

Course materials will be available for the duration of one year – you can watch them any time!

What if my internet connection goes down?

All 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. Don't expect to get graded, we're not an elementary school :) With the chat feedback option you can expact that our teachers will always share tips and tricks in a friendly, relaxed atmosphere.

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!
