How do courses work?

Once you enroll you will have access to all available content. Courses are self-study so you can watch at your convenience. Unlike workshops courses do not involve assignments and feedback. But with some courses there may be critique videos included which means the course was once a workshop. We feel adding the critiques makes the course more educational.

Do these courses need to be viewed on desktop computer only?

No. As long as you have high-speed Internet connection our courses can be viewed on a desktop, laptop or mobile device.
We support Mac OS X & iOS plus Windows & Android operating systems.

As a rule, it is always helpful to have the latest version of the browser you are using to minimize any difficulties.

All of the course material from the filming to editing has been put together for those that who want you to excel in their art journey. These courses have been designed for artists at every skill level and for the following mediums: acrylic, watercolor and mixed media. The lessons have a perfect blend of traditional fundamentals with expressive techniques.

 • Fully optimized for your mobile devices so that learning on the go is easy and convenient

How do I ask a question?

You can ask a question anytime during your enrollment in a course via comments section. This is located at the end of every lesson. Simply fill out the comment form and Robert will respond in a timely manner. It usually takes no longer than 24 hours. Once Robert replies you will be notified via email that there's a response waiting for you.

Do I need a fast Internet connection?

Yes – it will help alleviate frustration.  All Painthog courses stream in HD. A minimum download speed of 5.0 Mbps is recommended to stream video lessons and attend these courses.

You may check with your Internet provider (ISP) or click here to visit and test your download speed before enrolling in a course.. If your system downloads at less than 5.0 Mbps you will experience streaming video issues and this makes watching unenjoyable. 

For our international and frequent traveling students we recommend checking this handy link for internet speeds across the world to see if you'll have good connection. 

Lastly, if you can watch this video without interruption then your Internet is most likely fast enough for our courses.

What level of computer knowledge will I need for the courses?

A basic level of computer understanding is needed. Our technology is simple and very easy to use! If you can browse the Internet, type in a password, play a video, upload a photo then you can easily attend our courses.

Are these courses live?

No. Since we have students from all over the world, it makes it impossible to schedule live courses. These courses have instructor "exclusive" pre-recorded video lessons that you can watch anytime and anywhere as long as you have high-speed Internet connection on a desktop, laptop, tablet or smartphone.

You can watch the videos in parts if you can't watch the entire video all at once. You can forward and rewind the video lessons from your instructor as often as you wish during your enrollment in the course. This is an added bonus, because everyone knows that there is no rewinding instructors information when taking a physical workshop. We made it easy for anyone in the world to learn from the very best.
