Frequently Asked Questions
How does this video-course work?
Introduction to a Simplified Grid Method for Drawing is a video tutorial. It's like taking a workshop in a classroom, except you’ll be taking the course from your computer (in your jammies if you want). Immediately after you sign up for this course (it's free), look for an email with details on how to login to a members-only website. Save your login name, and your password, and bookmark the site’s page (https://belindatips.teachable.com/courses) so you can get back to your class later. Every lesson will be accessible on that page, so it’ll be easier to come and go if you’ve saved the location, and your login credentials. All courses are delivered from that page, on your computer, with videos, downloadable supply lists and some bonus material that you’ll find useful when the course is completed.

You can access the lessons at your own pace, in bite-sized segments, or all at once. This introduction totals about 11 minutes of video; easy peasey.
