  1. Hi,
    I have just joined the program today. Can anyone help me to get rid of the top bar
    with the words “Drawing, Painting, course…etc” this is blocking my view to the actual presentation. Any help is appreciated.
    Thank you,

    • HI Rajashree,

      This is the menu. If you are watching on a smaller computer screen, you can watch the videos full screen by clicking on the full screen icon when you scroll over the video. This will only show the video.
