Frequently Asked Questions

How does the pricing work? (After $1 Three-day Trial)


When you purchase the first year of the Virtual Art Academy® Apprentice Program you pay $79 each month for six months. Then the payments stop. You do not have to pay anything more. You will have permanent lifetime access to all 48 lessons of the first year of the Virtual Art Academy® Apprentice Program.  You can choose which lessons you want to work on depending on your particular needs and level of skill. After the six months, you have several choices. You could:


1. Purchase Year Two of the Virtual Art Academy® Apprentice Program and get access to another 48 lessons.

2. Take the rest of the year to finish your Year One lessons.

3. Take longer than a year to finish your Year One lessons.

4. Take a break for a few months.


To summarize, each year of the Virtual Art Academy® Apprentice Program will cost you a total of $474.


Our goal is to give you the equivalent, or better, art education that you would get at a prestigious art academy costing over $20,000 per year, for less than $500 per year.


And in fact, four years of education with the Virtual Art Academy will cost you less than attending just a single one week workshop with a professional artist (when you take into account the cost of airfare and lodging as well as the tuition fee).

Is my credit card information secure?


We do not store your credit card information on our server. All of our transactions are handled by FastSpring, Bright Market, LLC of Santa Barbara, California and Bicester, England who adhere to the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard and are regularly audited to ensure the highest levels of data security.

How long does the course take to complete?


You just go through the course as fast or slow as you want, and then finish when you think you have had enough from the course. We have had many students with us for many years, and even some students who come back after having studied our materials ten years ago. They find that there is a lot of depth here and they are continually learning.

How much time do I need to commit?


To build up your foundation skills from the ground up over four years, it would take about 10-20 hours per week. However you can spend more or less time depending on your needs and time limitations. And of course to what degree you want to build up your skills.


The Virtual Art Academy is designed to cater to everyone from those who are more casual about their art, to highly motivated painters who want to take their skills to a very high professional level.
