Beginning Painting

 

UNDER CONSTRUCTION! ! !

Have you always wanted to learn how to paint, but have struggled getting real skills out of that art class?

I think you will be relieved that learning how to paint doesn’t involve some secrets of the masters, or any other nonsense, it’s actually quite simple.

Staring at a blank canvas may induce anxiety, but we’ve got the solution. A step by step apporach where your skills will build steadily throughout the course, and you will be able to see your progress in no time. Stop being someone who just looks at art, and start learning the basics of painting, drawing, color theory, and composition and start creating!

It can be difficult when looking at the multitude of techniques and materials to even know where to start, but there is a system to this, and this class is going to teach it step by step.

I have had the free painting course up for a decade now, and in that time literally hundreds of thousands of people have signed up to take it. Instead of reworking this classic online painting course, I’ve decided to start from scratch and give you an inside look at what I’m teaching my students in the classroom at University of Colorado. That’s exactly what the beginning painting class is all about. No matter if you are a complete beginner, or someone looking to improve their skills, or someone who has been let down by teachers who would rather talk about your art than show you the basics, then this is the class for you. This class is simple, concise, with exercises and lessons which will have you improving your painting skills in no time. Stop practicing some bad advice that some hack teacher gave you, and get the real basics today!
