The content for each grade in this series is delivered once a week over 12 weeks. This content will provide you with the material you need to create a weekly form drawing lesson for your child over the full school year.
The first weeks' content will arrive soon after you enroll, and once per week thereafter.
Our system will automatically email you a reminder each week, whew!
As with all of our other courses, once the lessons have posted, they will remain in the classroom forever. They will continue to be accessible no matter if you are able to watch them the week they post, or not.
The series is designed for parents to watch and study/plan with. These courses are not designed for children to watch, unlike our Weekly Art program.

Frequently Asked Questions:
What does "on-demand" mean?

The first segment will arrive shortly after you complete registration. You can access the classroom whenever it is convenient for you! Forever! This series is designed for self-study (not for children to watch). Rev will check-in to answer questions in the classroom once per day, with the exceptions of weekends & holidays.
Do I need a high-speed internet connection to view the course videos?
Yes, all videos are high quality, so you will need a fairly high-speed Internet connection to view them. The videos are a vital part of the content of this course, so please do consider this. We are not able to provide alternative viewing options for people on dial-up or on very slow connections (and we cannot give refunds if you are having issues viewing the videos due to your internet connection). Therefore, please bear this in mind when registering. If you have regular broadband, you should be fine. The videos in this course are *not* downloadable.
