Frequently Asked Questions

How much time should I reserve on a weekly base?

Well, this really all depends on you and how much time you want to invest in your own creative enlightment. Having said that, if you dedicate, say half a day every week for a period of 3 months, you will sail right through. If you're one of those people that wants to rush through the course, you can also do that. Then we would think it would take about 2 to 4 weeks, working pretty much every day.

Do I need to buy any kind of materials for this course?

You will need a few of the basic arts and crafts stuff so that you can properly complete the assignments. You'll be able to re-use these, once you get to the college or university of your dreams. We will provide a list as soon as possible.

I'm not looking at applying to an Art & Design school, can I still participate?

Sure, why not? So the entire course is built to get you inspired and geared up with a kick-ass portfolio for your application. But you can also just build a porfolio and get your creativity stimulated using our online course. I would maybe skip some of the courses at the end of chapter 3 where we talk about the application process and writing the application essay. But hey, even then, why not give that a shot too!

How many portfolio items are we going to create in this course?

Now, that's is a great question! So, this course is all about building your portfolio and creating pieces that you can proudly demonstrate and talk about during your admission. You will be making approximately 20 different items that will all have the potential of being added to your portfolio, that is, if you put in the right amount of effort ;)

What if I don't like the course?

That is absolutely fine as we offer a 30-Day Money-Back guarantee. So, you've got litterally nothing to lose.
