Q&A

Do I have to buy all the supplies on the materials list? 

Absolutely not. Chances are, unless you are new to art, you probably have most of the supplies already. There are a couple of supplies you will need but they are not expensive items. 

Am I supposed to copy what you do? 

The way the class is designed, it is more about learning the techniques rather than replicating exactly what I do. You won't be able to unless you have the same magazine pages I do, and I wouldn't expect that. It's more about why I choose what I do and how I use it. Each project I do shares a different technique. 

What if I get behind? 

The class is self paced and you will have access for as long as the site is active. Videos are all downloadable as well. 

Do I have to join the Facebook group? 

Absolutely not, but it really is a great way to share your work and see what others are doing with the lessons. It is such an enriching process and it is so much fun just to connect with other artists. I am hosting the group at facebook but if you are really not interested in facebook but do want feedback from me, you can email me. 🙂

Can I share the workshop content? 

This is a private course for those that have paid, I gently ask that you please respect me and everyone who has paid for the course and not share the links/passwords.  Thank you. 

Can I sell my work created during the workshop? 

Of course you can!  

Can I share my work on my blog? 

ABSOLUTELY! I would love that! Please do keep in mind sharing the process would be sharing class content though, so I ask that you use your judgement about what is appropriate to share. If you are a hashtagger on instagram or twitter etc. if you could hashtag your posts #magazinestomasterpiece that would be great! 

Do I need high speed internet? 

It really helps having a high speed connection if you watch the videos from the site here. I have opted to allow downloading of the videos for those who have slow connections. I live in a rural community so I feel your pain and love to be able to download and watch without buffering. 

Do I need a computer, will it work on a tablet or phone? 

The Videos/Lessons will be viewable on multiple devices, though I can not 100% guarantee they will work on ALL devices. They do work on Ipads and Iphones.

Can I offer workshops based on the techniques shared in your workshop?

I kindly ask that you wouldn't. Please understand that it can take years for an artist to develop techniques, hours and hours to plan, film, edit and upload their materials with website costs, video hosting fees etc. 

Can I write an article for publication on techniques used during this course? 

Please use good judgment when considering doing so.  If you do, take what you learn from what I offer and mold it into your own original ideas. Many techniques have been around for centuries and nobody owns them. If you take several techniques, use them in a specific order to create a consistent look, then you have made those techniques your own. 

Once I sign up for the course can I change my mind? 

Sorry, but there are no refunds once you have signed up for the course. If you are having any issues with gaining access to materials let me know and I will make sure any issues will be solved.

Thank you.
