I struggle to find the time to paint. Can mypaintingclub help?


The problem of time is actually, usually, the problem of inspiration and reminders.

You're not inspired to paint all the time, and you don't always remember to paint.

Let's say for instance that you have Sunday afternoon free to paint. You go for a walk instead. Monday morning comes around and you think, 'Gee I should have done some painting yesterday - I had the time, but didn't think of it!'

You just need a reminder to paint and a touch of inspiration.

When you join mypaintingclub that's exactly what we give you - weekly email inspiration and reminders that hey, you could be painting right now!

Problem solved. You're welcome.


Can I download these video lessons?

No, sorry we don't allow downloads in order to avoid piracy.

You can watch the video lessons anywhere that you use the internet as long as your premium membership lasts.

If you purchase any lesson individually (with or without a premium membership) you'll have continued access to that lesson no matter whether you cancel your premium membership or not. I wouldn't say forever, but you know, as long as I continue breathing for instance, and then some.


What if I don't like it? Can I get a refund?

Yes you can have a full refund at any time.

You don't even have to give a reason - just say 'hey Richard, gimme back all that money I gave you.'

And I'll say, 'Done.' No questions, no problem.

Why? Because I'd MUCH rather have a happy ex-customer than a non-happy ex-customer. Much much much.
