The Requirements include: 

Knowledge of the tools and medium –As I do NOT discuss how the acrylic medium works, I do highly suggest you are familiar and somewhat practiced with tools and mediums you choose to use. There are lots of free resources, such as YouTube, where you can get some basic tutorials to get your started. The course will be waiting when you are ready.

A broadband internet connection – the files sizes for the video lessons are large which means they may take time to load if your connection is weak.

An updated Computer or iPad – An old device may have troubles with streaming. If you can stream YouTube and other online services this course will work for you.

A Color Printer – Though it is not crucial to print out the PDF reference images you may p refer to do so.
