F.A.Q.s

How Much is the course in British pounds or another currency?

The exchange rate changes every day but you can get a rough idea by putting the question into Google. There may be slight variations depending on which conversion metrics the Thinkific site is using but you can certainly get a good idea of the approximate price. Remember to do this on the same day you intend to buy the course. When you buy Thinkific will automatically convert the price to charge you the right amount of money for your local currency.

What if i don't have PayPal?

Paypal is just the method by which the site receives payment, you can pay with your usual credit or debit card.


What support will I get?

In addition to email access to Michele, there is a dedicated Facebook group, just for students of Michele’s Thinkific courses, where you can compare results and get advice alongside other students. If you have any access or log in issues or trouble understanding how to navigate the site you can also request a special PDF guide that will make everything clear.

How long will I have access to the course for?

After you buy the course you have lifetime access, you can take the course at your leisure and re-visit any of the modules you like. Plus you will automatically have access to any additional content or upgrades that are added at a later date.

How is the course structured?

There are 10 modules each with a full video tutorial, and two downloadable PDFs. The first PDF is an illustrated step by step of the technique taught in the video, it also includes additional tips and troubleshooting to help you figure out any issues you are having. The second PDF gives you two copyright free photographs to complete larger paintings from (optional).

What materials will I need to buy?

If you already have paper, paint and brushes you may not need to buy anything. I will not be insisting you have exact colors and brands. However, there will be a video and downloadable PDF with tons of advice and links to suggested materials so you can choose what to buy if you don’t have anything.

The full course is $99
