Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

Q:  Please explain the different types of learning opportunities that you offer.

I have 3 different ways to have fun improving your art skills.
 
1)  LIVE sessions ONLINE - These are publicly scheduled sessions or can be with a private group (Birthday party, etc).  This is real-time interaction with the artists and every session is fun & personalized to the attendees.  I use the Zoom meetings application for these LIVE ONLINE sessions.
 
2)  ON-DEMAND Video - www.KeepDrawing.com is my video site where subscribers can view over +150 videos (and counting).  All you need is a web-capable device and you can watch & draw ANYTIME and ANYWHERE.  I am always adding new videos on many different subjects to appeal to all interests! This is a family safe site that is free of any of those pesky or inappropriate advertisements.

3)  LOCAL IN-PERSON Sessions - This is for those that are in the Houston, TX metropolitan area.  This can be a variety of weekly sessions, special public events, summer art camps, or private group parties.  This requires local venues and the locations will vary.
 

Q:  What age and skill level is required?

I offer beginner, intermediate, and advanced skill levels.

My motto is; “If you can write your name, I can teach you to draw!”.  I have found that around 6 yrs old is generally when a child can stay attentive for a typical 1-hour session.  However, every child is different, so feel free to contact me if you have a child younger than 6 yrs that you believe is ready for the beginner level.

For the ‘young-at-heart’, I love to have the wisdom and insight of the older generation in my classes.  Whether 6 yrs or 96 yrs, we have fun learning and improving our creative skills!

 

Q:  What is ON-DEMAND Video?

ON-DEMAND video is a video streaming service that is similar to Netflix or YouTube.  Easy to use by browsing thru categories or search thru all the videos.  With any web-capable device (computer, smartphone, smart TV) you can access ANYTIME and ANYWHERE!  Since it is my own video site, I have made it Family Safe and does not contain any advertisements like other sites.  Value priced for any budget.  For my ON-DEMAND Video, go to  www.KeepDrawing.com.
 

Q:  How do I enroll in a LIVE ONLINE session?

Enroll in the class of your choice with just a few easy steps.

1) Go to the ENROLL page. Choose the type of class you would like of the current offerings and review the general information.

2) Submit enrollment contact information.  It is very important that you provide accurate contact information (particularly a valid email address that you monitor).  I need to send you the online class links in order to have access to the class online.  I will be using the email address you provide at this step to send the link.

3) Select the particular class session(s) that you would like to purchase.  They will be added to your shopping cart.

4) Checkout & complete payment.

Monitor the email address you provided for an email from me with the class access links (ArtWithAlbright@gmail.com).  I strive to be responsive within 24 hrs.  Suggest adding ArtWithAlbright@gmail.com to your safe sender list to ensure it reaches your inbox instead of the spam/junk folder.
 

Q:  What are the methods of payment?

I use PAYPAL as my secure payment service for online transactions.  Paypal accepts multiple forms of payment (credit card, debit card, bank account, Paypal account balance, etc).   NOTE:  If paying with the major credit card or debit card, you do NOT need to have your own Paypal account.
 

Q:  Paypal site doesn't seem to be working for payment.  What should I do?

The solution is to update your version of Google Chrome and then go back thru the checkout process.  I haven't been able to confirm that this is a problem with other web browsers, but follow the same process.

If you try this and it still doesn't work, just email me and I will generate a direct invoice.

Unfortunately, this is not within my control and is an issue with 3rd party applications.  We have found that there is an issue between Google Chrome browser and Paypal checkout.  The problem seems to be when Chrome or Paypal make an update to their software apps and their websites.



 

Q:  I like one of your art pieces.  Is your artwork available for purchase?

Yes!  See the SHOP menu where you can find my current offering.  I have canvas paintings, watercolor paintings, and drawings.  Also, I have fun merchandise available with some of my designs; clothing, mugs/bags/aprons, and many more fun and unique items such as stickers, magnets, pillows, phone cases, and even shower curtains!   How's that for decorating your bathroom....(smile). As this is a continual process, if you see a piece that you are interested in purchasing, but it has not been fully integrated into the shopping cart, just send me a message. I can give you further details on pricing & shipping.
 

Q:  What supplies do I need for DRAWING classes?

I purposely keep the supply list for drawing classes inexpensive to items that can be easily obtained from a department store or art supply store.
  • Card stock or thick art paper 8.5 x 11.
  • Pencils (HB hardness).
  • Colored pencil set.
  • Eraser.
  • Stomp or blending tool (q-tip).

Some optional items to have handy, but are not required for all classes.
