Your digital camera image.
Art Instructor’s comments.
Instructor’s visual suggestions for improvement.
Links to images and/or information on the Web that you will find useful.
Possible animations to clarify points and offer instruction.

Art critiques are cumulative, printable and will remain on the site at the online art school for three years. You will also receive a CD-ROM copy of all critiques upon graduation. Art critiques can be placed in a common area where other students can learn from them, or in a private area for only your viewing.

A Revolutionary Way to Learn to Draw & Paint

Student uses a Digital Camera (supplied in your Student Sign Up Kit along with Textbooks & Supplies) to take digital photos of their completed assigned Lesson Artwork for each lesson. The student sends those photos as email attachments to the teacher who draws, paints & comments on the work & posts a critique of each lesson on our WEB site, a personalized How-To-Do-It-Better Critique for the student to view 24/7/365

Have you ever watched an artist work and wished you could be an artist or be a better artist or craftsperson? Have you always had an appreciation . . . an excitement . . . for nature, but no time or funds for artistic lessons? Whether you are looking to develop a stress-relieving hobby, to express your love of nature, or to begin a new career, you can learn oil painting techniques through my interactive, oil painting course.

As a professional, exhibited oil painter with over 40 years experience, I have helped many people create good pictures. However, I kept hearing the same common struggles. Students did not have the time to travel to class, they did not have hours to attend the sessions, and they did not have unlimited funds to pay for lessons. To help solve those problems, I founded my interactive web based oil painting course. Here we teach drawing and painting so you can become an artist or improve your art.

Now I can help you become an artist via the Web! There are tremendous benefits of taking lessons from an artist in a Web based school at home including:

-interactive communication with me, your distance learning course instructor using email and viewing my critiques of your work on your personal Web folder the school's web site.

-all materials are included – 10 heavily illustrated artist's textbooks, canvas pads, paints, drawing set and digital camera!

-24/7 availability – take each art lesson when you have time.

-personal critiques of your art lessons including specific instructions so you can increase your artistic skills.

-reduced cost compared to traditional brick-and-mortar courses.

Through Internet technology and use of a digital camera (included with your tuition), you can receive a high level of attention and instruction through our Web Based Course's Personalized Critiques of YOUR artwork.

Enroll today! Study art at your own pace, with full interaction and instruction. You’ll be amazed at the level of creativity you possess that is just waiting to be released through our Course. You learn at home with supplied books, mini lessons on our Web site and hand drawn or painted critiques by me posted to your folder!
