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.

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 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.

"What an exciting course! Drawing tips, painting explained and using different media too, I am inspired to look for my own subjects to paint. I have plenty of ideas I now want to get down on paper and now I believe I can. Worth it? Oh yes!"
