Frequently Asked Questions

How long do I have access to the course?

Forever! Once you've enrolled and paid, you'll have access to the course material for as long as you need. So devour it all in one weekend or take things slow. It's your choice!

What supplies do I need?

Access the complete supply list by going to the FREE lesson in the table of contents. You’ll need basic colors of acrylic paint, brushes and canvas or paper.

I can’t draw, is that a problem?

Nope, I’ve got templates you can print out and use.

I’m a beginner!

That’s great. These are fun and easy paintings. Perfect for a beginner.

I’m really busy, how much time will these take?

Depending on the size, and how much detail you want to include, each painting will take you between 2 to 4 hours. Do the painting right now or sometime before our next patriotic holiday.

I’ve never used acrylic paint.

You’ll love it! Using acrylics is the fastest and easiest way to learn how to paint. It’s a very forgiving medium.

Can I use watercolor or oil paint?

These paintings are designed for acrylic paint. But probably, if you gave it some thought and patiently let the layers dry, you could work it out.

I still have a question, how can I contact you?

I'd be happy to answer any questions you might have. Send me an email at
