Do members get access to the classes from previous months, or just the current month?
As a member you get access to everything; the classes from previous months, the recordings from all previous live sessions, all bonus classes and resources, and all future classes as long as you are a member.
How do I access the classes?
After you register as a member with the Adventure Art Academy you can start learning right away! All our classes are located in your library (our basecamp :). The link to the library is located in the top menu, and you login with the credentials you used to sign up. Then, scroll past the header image and click on the "Adventure Art Academy" class heading or image and it will take you to the library of our classes!
Can I cancel my membership anytime?
Yes! The Adventure Art Academy is like most other media content subscriptions. You can cancel your membership payment anytime, and you retain access to the class content through the end of your billing cycle, after which date your access will be gone.
Please note that during your first month of membership, if you take any of the classes (or part of a class) I cannot refund that month if you cancel, as you have already utilized the content offered. The exception, of course, is any extenuating circumstances. If this happens, please email me and we will work something out! (for example, a student broke her wrist so she got a month of free membership because she had not been able to participate in any classes yet).
If I fall behind on the classes, can I pause my membership payments while I catch up?
Unfortunately, no. I am unable to grant free access to the class content.
If it is helpful, think of your membership like a Netflix for art: you are paying for access to thelibrary of classes,which includes a new class every month. Just as Netflix doesn't give free access because we get behind on a show or don't watch TV for a month, so too am I unable to support free access to the class library. I work really hard to keep the classes super affordable with a minimal paywall, and appreciate your understanding.
I also work hard to design classes that you can take out of order, so please don't feel stressed if you haven't taken every class. I encourage you to start with whichever class is the most interesting! (If you are new to watercolor, the start here guide can be very helpful, however).
If you have experienced extenuating circumstances that meant you viewed zero of the content, you are welcome to reach out to me ([email protected]), and we'll see if we can work something out.
When I cancel my membership, can I access the classes I didn't do?
No. As a member you are paying for access to the entire library of classes, and your subscription payments do not correspond to any one class.
The website also does not have any way for me to give access to individual classes.
What supplies do I need to follow along?
Whatever you have on hand will work great! During the classes I often use a limited palette of colors, and I encourage you to use whatever colors you have that are the closest. If they aren't exact matches that is ok! You might get different results, but that is part of the fun of our versatile and unpredictable medium. For paper I recommend a watercolor paper of some kind, and most brushes out there will work just fine. I don't want you to go out and buy a lot of supplies if you are just starting out! Instead, I recommend using what you have, and then intentionally adding to your supplies collection over time once you have an idea of what you really want to try!
Are the live Q&A and community gatherings recorded?
Yes!! All live events are recorded and can be found in our basecamp library. They are saved/ located with the corresponding month's lesson, as the content of the live session is tied to the adventure class that was launched earlier in the month.
How can I contact you if I have any questions or issues with the classes?
I have an idea for a class/ a technique I would like to learn. Are you open to ideas?
Always! I love to hear what you all are interested in learning about. I can't guarantee that I'll be able to travel to the landscape you want to learn, but I will do my best! Please email me at [email protected]with any and all ideas and feedback!
If I am new to watercolor will I be able to do the classes?
Yes, absolutely!! Every class walks you through a painting from start to finish, and you can pause the video at any time if I move too quickly for you. In addition, I created a Start Here Guide series of lessons that share the foundational skills you need to start working with watercolor. We have a beautiful mix of students currently of all levels.
Will you ever have in-person gatherings?
I hope so! After the covid-19 pandemic continues to subside I will let members know as soon as I feel comfortable gathering in person. I do not have a specific date set.
