  • Is it really suitable for ABSOLUTE beginners?

    YES! You do not need ANY experience or special talent to do the course. It is designed for absolute beginners with very clear step-by-step instructions and easy to follow demonstrations.

  • What's the difference between Full Membership and Basic Membership?

    Basic Membership has no access to the Show&Tell Community Group (they both have full access to all the modules of the course). See Membership Options for details

  • How long does the course take?

    That is completely up to you, it has no fixed time frame, it is completely flexible. You can go as fast or as slow as you like. You can stay for just a few months or longer, it is your choice.

  • Is it suitable for children?

    Full Membership is not for children (this is for child protection reasons due to the online community group). Basic Subscription is the one for kids! It is perfect for older children wanting to learn to draw realism.

  • How do I pay?

    When you enroll you enter your credit card details. Payments will be processed through the secure Stripe payment processing platform. Your subscription payments will then be charged to your account automatically monthly or every three months according to the payment option you selected.

  • Is there a Satisfaction Guarantee?

    Yes! We really hope you enjoy the course, but if you decide it is not for you or change your mind, within 14 days of joining, you can contact Vanessa and receive a full refund of your first payment. Email: [email protected] Please note this guarantee does not apply if the majority of the Key Unit and/or Project has been completed

  • What if I want to cancel my subscription?

    You can cancel your subscription at any time by going to My Account Billing and selecting Cancel for your subscription. Note that you will not receive a partial refund if it is part way through your billing period. You will continue to have access to the course until the end of that billing period.

  • What art materials will I need?

    The Start Up Kits (see below) make it easy and simple to get the materials you will need. Alternatively you can purchase your art materials at your local art store using the materials list provided in the course. The course has been designed to keep the cost of art materials at an affordable level.
