What is an online course?

An online course is a collection of lessons on this website that include video and text instructions. Each course is in its own private "classroom" that only people that have registered for the course can access. All videos are pre-recorded and you can watch them at your convenience, unless you register for a Zoom session which will be done Live. All courses here, including the replay videos from the Zoom sessions at Courses.MansiMakes.com have lifetime access (as long as I own and manage them).

I’m new to online workshops, how does this work?

 To access any course materials, you need to log on to this website. There is an introduction section available for preview BEFORE you purchase any course, where you can find commonly asked questions about that specific course and also a list of supplies. 

I encourage you to use the materials you have, unless specific materials are required for a course. I want you to be able to have fun, use the brands you love most and play with color combinations of your choice. 

On the individual lesson pages, you’ll find the video for that particular technique. All the videos are available for you to watch online whenever you like.

You can ask questions in the courses' comments section or in the private Facebook Group where you can also share what you’re creating and see what your fellow classmates' creations.

Do I have to be on my computer at a specific time to do a course?

You can watch the pre-recorded videos at a time that is convenient for you. Most courses are set up in "camp" style, so you have access to Lesson 1 on Day 1 of the camp, Lesson 2 on Day 2, and so on. The courses are structured to give you enough time to practice one skill before building on it.

Live sessions are clearly marked as such on the website. If you signed up for a Zoom session, the Live classes will always take place at Pacific Time. Please refer to a time zone convertor to check what time it will be for you when the Live video is streamed.  

What skill level do I need?

All my courses are based on intuitive learning and, therefore, do not require any specific skill sets. All you need is a willingness to follow your heart. 

If you're interested in an advanced course, I will list courses you need to take prior to signing up, so that you are set up for success.

Can children take these courses?

Yes! Children as young as 3 years old have taken my monoprinting courses, with some help from a grown up, and have been very successful! There is no age barrier to entry. And I find I learn a lot from the perspective that children bring to intuitive art. 

Can I download the videos?

At this time, I do not offer downloadable videos.  These are really large files and would take a long time to download. Also, since you have "lifetime access" to these videos, you can come back anytime to your account and re-watch the videos of the courses you have purchased. 

Will there be a place to upload my work and get feedback?

 All Courses will have their own private Facebook Group. Once you register for a course, you will be sent an email containing an invitation to the Facebook Group along with the password you will need to submit joining the private group. 

I realize everyone is not on Facebook and have provided a place for you to feel free to share comments, questions, etc. in the comments section of this website. 

However, since you cannot directly upload images to this site, a private Facebook Group is the next best solution for me to provide feedback and for you to feel part of the community. 

Will I need to buy a lot of supplies?

Supplies are listed in the introduction of each course. There is also a separate list of specific supplies for each lesson in the course. I encourage you to ask me questions if you're hesitant about making any purchases, as I can help separate the essentials from the wishlist for any particular course.

What is the class capacity?

For pre-recorded sessions, there is no max class size since each person is taking the class at their own pace.

For live Zoom sessions, classes are capped at a maximum of 5 attendees to be able to provide individual attention and answer questions. If you're unable to register for a Zoom session right away, you can request to be added to a waitlist

I live outside the United States. Can I watch the videos?

YES!  I would love to have you be part of the online courses. Most of the sessions are pre-recorded, so you can watch them at your own pace and at a time that works for you.

If you signed up for a Zoom session, the Live classes will always take place at Pacific Time. Please refer to a time zone convertor to check what time it will be for you when the Live video is streamed. 

Can I share my login and password with my friends?

No. I have priced all my courses very reasonably and have worked very hard to give you a meaningful learning experience, chockfull of good content. I respect your time and appreciate that you're willing to pay to take these lessons...my promise is that you won't be disappointed. 

I would love for your friends to register for my online courses and look forward to welcoming them in the private Facebook group. Thank you for honoring this request. 

Can I get a refund?

If you choose to not take a course before the online course has begun, I am happy to offer you store credit to another class.  If the online course has already launched, there are no credits or refunds.
