Hello all, my husband had emergency surgery on day 10 of the drawing course. If he could have a bit more time to finishing downloading the videos it would be terrific. He has enjoyed what he has completed and is almost recovered from the surgery. If I add the PC course to the online course, will that mean that the course will remain available to him on

 Thank you,

Adriene Brookes

Adriene, I am not sure if you are a new member or just your husband, but  :welcome: ! Sorry to hear your husband had to have surgery. :(

I am sure Nolan(the instructor of the drawing course) will help you out. Life happens and he understands that! :)

 :bigwelcome:  Brookesa, so sorry to hear your husband has been ill. Here's wishing for a full and speedy recovery. Are you doing the course with him?   :whistle:  We'd love to see you and yours!   :yippee:

Not to worry, once Nolan sees your post he can open it up again for you. Just a note that once it is open, you can download them every day as they become available. You don't have to wait to finish each one. Then you just work along at your own pace. If there's one thing I can say about our Clark boys.....they aim to please!   O0

 :welcome: to Paintbasket, Brookesa

I'm also wishing your husband a full and speedy recovery.

Everyone here who has taken or is taking the drawing course loves it.  I think you and hubby would love going through it together.  It might prove to be very therapeutic.  There are some here who have chronic pain and find it relaxing and a good diversion from the awareness of pain.

I'm sure Nolan will be around to set you up, no problem.   :flowers:

 :welcome: Adriene, to PaintBasket.  :flowers:

Sorry to hear that your husband has had surgery, I'm also wishing your husband a full and speedy recovery. Do you and your husband both follow the drawing course? As Lillian already said, for some of us, including myself, this course is very therapeutic. I have chronic pain and find drawing very relaxing and it is a great diversion from the pain.
