Full Membership is suitable for beginners and those wanting to improve their skills. You will learn how to draw beautiful detailed realism. You will have unlimited access to the entire course PLUS be a member of the "Show & Tell" Community Group. This is where Full Membership students can connect, share their journey, post their artwork and Vanessa will answer student questions.

  • All Projects and Key Units are fully demonstrated with clear easy to follow step-be-step instructions

  • Full access to all KEY UNITS. This is where you will do the big chunks of learning.

You can also replay any module or video as many times as you like. Note access is only available whilst subscription is current, once subscription is cancelled you will no longer have access to the course site (except for FREE modules).

  • Ability to download worksheets, photo references and information sheets. Note that videos are NOT downloadable.

  • Lessons are all pre-recorded, there are no live tutorials or zoon lessons. This means you can work at your own pace, start and stop whenever you wish, giving you complete flexibility. Time zones will not be a problem. There are no deadlines, no assessments, no exams, no pressure.

  • The course can be accessed through your computer, ipad or mobile phone (I recommend a computer or ipad because the larger screen with give you a clearer view of the drawing demonstrations).

  • Access to the SHOW&TELL COMMUNITY GROUP. This is where you can post photos of your artwork, connect up with other students, support and encourage each other and get feedback on their artwork from Vanessa. (This is the main difference between Full Membership and Basic Membership)

Full Membership is NOT available to students under 18yrs

This is for child protection reasons due to the online community group.


  • 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. New modules will be added to the course on a regular basis. You can stay for a few months or a few years, it is your choice.

  • 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.

  • 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. I have deliberately designed the course in a way that keeps the cost of art materials at an affordable level.

Do you need art materials?

A range of start up kits are available to suit all budgets.
