Frequently Asked Questions
The Vilppu Subscription and the Vilppu Academy Online Courses are two separate things (products). Many students in the online classes also subscribe to the Vilppu Subscription as a supplement, but it is not required.
The Subscription is a collection of Glenn Vilppu's Drawing Demonstrations on various topics. They do not include the lessons from the online courses. You pay a monthly fee for access.
The Online courses are 10 week sessions with weekly streaming video lessons, assignments, critiques, live chats and a closed Facebook group where you can ask questions, post work and chat with other students of all levels from around the world. It is a very supportive artistic community.
Weekly lessons are on streaming video so that you can watch them on your own schedule.
Assignments are due Sundays at midnight Pacific Time. Glenn Vilppu personally records critiques your weekly assignment and you also see the crits of everyone in your class.
The live weekly video chat is Thursdays 10 am- noon Pacific Time and is recorded so that you are able to watch it even if you are unable to participate live. You can email questions in advance of the chat so that they are answered even if you are unable to participate "in person".
There is also an optional closed Facebook Group called Vilppu Students where you can ask questions at any time, post work, links and chat with artists of all levels from around the world. It is a very supportive creative community. vilppuacademy.com
