How long is this course?
Access to the course is 1 year, from October 2019 until September 2020. You will finish your art ministry certification in May, and then you’ll develop your art ministry portfolio and be mentored by Jessie Nilo.
Is this a self-paced course?
Are there live videos I have to watch at a certain time?
No, it’s not self-paced. We all go through the same lesson together each week. However, you watch the lessons on your own time, according to your own schedule. This course offers the best of everything: flexibility, accountability, and freedom. You’ll interact with the same classmates weekly until you graduate together. And if you get behind in the lessons, it’s okay, break weeks are built into the course. You can even use the summer to finish your lessons.
WHAT IF I’M BRAND NEW AT MAKING ART?
Beginners, if you’re willing to try new things, and you have a great attitude about learning and giving yourself a chance, we’ve got you covered. You’ll find a ton of encouragement in this course. Everyone who is an expert started out as a beginner. And nobody is an expert at everything!… which is another way of saying we’re all beginners. :)
WHAT IF I’M ALREADY SUPER EXPERIENCED AT MAKING ART?
Expert artists, if you’re willing to keep experimenting (to include customizing any lessons to your level of experience), and you have a great attitude about being humble, we’ve got you covered. You’ll find a ton of artistic freedom in this course, and we mostly use our existing art supplies. Professional artists can also benefit greatly when they engage with beginners who are new to the craft, offering a fresh perspective.
DO I NEED TO ALREADY BE SERVING IN MINISTRY?
Students can have ANY amount of ministry experience to enroll in this course, including “none.” Whether you have zero experience serving in ministry, or have volunteered for 10 years with an organization outside the church, or are a paid pastor—and anything in between—we’ve got you covered. Everyone is supportive, no matter where we are in our journey of serving The Lord. Let’s make visual art come alive in the way we bless the people around us.
How much does the course cost?
Tuition is 12 monthly payments of $40, or you can choose one payment of $450 up front.
Is there a money-back guarantee?
Yes, during the first 60 days, tuition is completely refundable with no questions asked, minus a $20 admin fee.
When is the last day I can join?
For the 2019-2020 year, the last day to enroll is October 17, 2019, which is mid-way through our Orientation Week. We won’t be accepting new students again for this course until we take new enrollments for the fall of 2020.
