Do I need to have art experience?


Not at all! We designed all our programs to be easy to run at any level, so you can have fun, explore new things, enjoy creative tasks, and admire your work. "There are no mistakes; only happy accidents." — Bob Ross




What supplies do I need?


We provide all necessary materials and supplies, except for paper to cover tables. All supplies are listed in the workbooks, and at the beginning of each project video. For Makers workshops and Explorations, access to water (a sink) is needed.




What if I run out of supplies?


We always pack extra sets for new-coming students, and to account for "happy accidents." If you do need a couple more sets, we will gladly ship you everything you need, free of charge.




How long does each art project take?


NEW CONNECTIONS: Approximately 1–1.5 hours. PRINCIPLES OF EXCELLENCE: Approximately 1 hour, but we recommend extra time for additional practice (optional). EXPLORATIONS: Approximately one hour per session, ranges from 1–5 sessions per project. Refer to your workbook for the number of sessions for your project. MAKERS: Custom and flexible, depending on the size of the project. We plan with you according to your needs and circumstance, and lay out a clear timetable.




What is the prep/clean-up time?


NEW CONNECTIONS: None. PRINCIPLES OF EXCELLENCE: None. EXPLORATIONS: Maximum 10 minutes (for a class of 30 students). MAKERS: Some clean-up and prep will be required, but no more than a typical art class.




Will I need assistance?


Only for the Makers program. Our other programs are designed to be conveniently taught in a distance-learning setting at home, or by 1 teacher with a full-size class. We are always here to provide unlimited technical and advisory support should you need it. We appreciate your feedback and are eager to improve our projects based on your experience.

What is the timeline for each program?


NEW CONNECTIONS: Each grade has 5 Units. Each Unit has 3 Lessons, 1–1.5 hours each. We recommend one hour per week of art learning (3 weeks per Unit). This way, the program will take 15 weeks. PRINCIPLES OF EXCELLENCE: The program has 7 units. Each unit has 4 Lessons (Introduction to the topic, Art Focus, and 3–4 art assignments). We recommend one hour per week of art learning (4 weeks per Unit). This way, the program will take 28 weeks. EXPLORATIONS: Three levels of difficulty, depending on the project and grade level. Beginner: 2 sessions of 1 hour each Intermediate: 2–3 sessions of 1 hour each Advanced: 3–5 sessions of 1 hour each. For example: At 1 hour per week, the Treasure Box can be completed in 1 month. At 1 hour each day for 1 week, the project will take the full week. MAKERS: Custom and flexible, depending on the size of the project. We plan with you according to your needs and circumstance, and lay out a clear timetable.
