Signing Up & Paying for Your Class

When registration for the upcoming term is open, you can check out all the classes available for enrollment. Simply select the class you want to take, fill out our registration form (if you are a new student), and proceed to checkout. It’s that simple!

PayPal is our exclusive merchant service provider. When you’re asked which payment method you would like to use, you can either sign in to PayPal and pay with your PayPal account, or you can just pay with your credit/debit card or e-check without having a PayPal account. Make sure to look for these payment options on the payment page.

Additionally, if you wish to split a single- or multiple-class purchase into two installments, you can do so using our Payment Plan feature. At the time of final purchase, you will be presented with a few payment options: PayPal, credit card, or through our “Installments” option. The first half of your payment will be due immediately upon successful registration. The second half of your payment will be due no later than 10 days before classes start. The second installment payment will be automatically deducted from your payment source 10 days before classes start.

Finalizing Account Details

All students will receive a PayPal payment confirmation email once your payment has been completed.

Otherwise, please write us at: registration@cgmasteracademy.com if you experience any troubles with class payment confirmation notifications or missing login credentials.

How do CGMA Master Classes work?

CGMA is an online art academy dedicated to helping artists develop and cultivate their creative talents. CGMA has four terms a year, and each term offers a variety of classes to choose from. Courses range from 6 to 10 weeks long, and include one full year of access to lectures, Q&A sessions, assignment feedback videos, and classroom materials.

Lastly, certificates of completion are granted to students who complete 80% of the class assignments (i.e. for an 8-week course, students must complete at least 6 assignments in order to receive a certificate of completion).

Each week will be based on the following format.

step one

Starting each week, you will gain access to a video lecture from your instructor along with an assignment description. Assignments will be due by the end of the week.

step two

After assignment submissions, the instructor will provide individual feedback to each student through a pre-recorded video including paintover.

step three

After assignment submissions, the instructor will provide individual feedback to each student through a pre-recorded video including paintover.

How it works Lecture and assignment

one

VIEW LECTURE AND ASSIGNMENT

Similar to what happens in a physical classroom, at the beginning of each week, you will be presented with a topic and lecture that will be covered for the week. However, unlike what happens in a physical classroom, these lectures are given as fully pre-recorded video talks and demonstrations. During these recordings, instructors cover a range of topics, techniques, and examples related to the current week’s subject followed by a description of the assignment due at the end of each week.

ASSIGNMENT SUBMISSION / INSTRUCTOR FEEDBACK

Second only to actually viewing the pre-recorded lectures, Assignment Submissions are probably the most important weekly component of our program. This is how your growth and progress is measured and evaluated each week. By making sure to submit your assignments on time each week, you demonstrate how well you grasped the subject of that week’s lecture. But more importantly, it gives your instructor the opportunity to personally view your work and give critiques and notes specific to you through the Instructor Feedback component. These are usually done as either pre-recorded videos, visual mark-ups, or both.

three

live Q&A

Now this is the time when you can interact directly with your instructor, and ask all those questions you had during the week (whether about that brush you saw in the pre-corded lecture, or about that technique you couldn't quite understand). Better still, during these live sessions, you will be able to see and learn about all the questions and issues your classmates had as well. And even if you can’t make it to the live event- for whatever reason –don’t worry; they will be recorded for later viewing (just in case you miss it, or want to review everything covered during that time). How awesome is that?

Wrapping up your class

At the end of the 8th week, students gain an additional 2 extra weeks of viewing time for their classroom. During this period it’s important for students to review as much of the provided content as possible (i.e. course lectures, Live Q&A sessions and other students’ feedback), before the classroom closes between terms. Please note that the classroom chat feature remains active 24/7 year round.

Student-only Registration

Once you are a current/former student of CGMA, you will have the advantage of being able to register for the next term 5 days prior to general registration (what is advertised on the website). Previous-term students can sign up for classes by logging in to the website and going to the registration page. This allows current students a better chance at signing up for the classes with limited seats that are in high demand.

If you have any questions prior to enrolling in any classes, just ask! Our student advisory team will be happy to assist you.

Payment plans

If you wish to split a single- or multiple-class purchase into two installments, you can do so using our Payment Plan feature. At the time of final purchase, you will be presented with a few payment options: PayPal, credit card, or through our “Installments” option. For new students, this will be at the end of the registration form you complete after making your class selection(s). For existing students, this will be after you log in and make your class selection(s). In either case, the rest is pretty simple!
