How do I register for a course?
Simply decide what course you would like to enroll in, and after you make an online payment, you will be redirected to the Old Masters Academy account setup page. Upon registering for a membership account, you will get immediate and full access to all Old Masters Academy video lessons and educational materials and can start watching videos right away.
Correspondence Course students will also receive instructions from the academy tutors, advising what to do, step by step, for your drawing skills to be assessed and an individual curriculum created.
How do I upgrade or downgrade between courses?
Old Masters Academy Online Course students can upgrade for a one-time discounted payment to the full Correspondence Course membership at any time.
Because personal tutoring is a service, and as such it cannot be returned, downgrading from the Correspondence Course to the Online Course is possible but not refundable.

As an Old Masters Academy student, you will have a lifetime membership and unlimited personal support from the Academy tutors. “Lifetime” refers to the life span of the Old Masters Academy website.

Personal tutoring is focused on your drawing education goals and depends on the ongoing assessment of your art skills. You will have a custom-tailored curriculum of up to 50 art tasks that you will have to do, one by one, according to instructions from the tutors and under their guidance.
Such personal tutoring is unlimited and comes for a lifetime for a one-time payment.
