HIGH DEFINITION COURSE VIDEOS

Every step, every technique, every stroke in brilliant clarity.

LEARNING SIMPLIFIED WITH EBOOKS

Every course module includes a step by step ebook.

We all learn differently. Not all us learn most efficiently from a video. Some of us prefer to learn from a book, so why not include both! Our courses have been developed to accelerate learning by teaching to many different learning styles. Each course module includes an illustrated ebook that corresponds with the video. Every step and concept is clearly illustrated and described in each ebook.

WHAT MEMBERS HAVE TO SAY

A few comments from our 5000+ members...

Testimony1
"Concise and to the point"
"I've only been a member for a few days and have only begun to explore the course, but I am truly surprised at how much is packed into each lesson that I have encountered so far. I think that Matt's course can, perhaps, help one to compress several years worth of formal art instruction into several months by virtue of the course being concise and to the point. I hope so; I have many lost years to make up for." -Daniel

Testimonial 4
"A Big Thank You"
"Hey Matt used this video today in my 2nd year art class, with ultimate lesson plan resources. OMG what a class it was!! What a joy it was to be able to give each student one on one while your videos clearly, concisely, eloquently and expertly explained the concepts. As a sculptor/crafter it’s great to stand on your shoulders for the art areas that aren’t my speciality. That’s a big thank you from Ireland!! You da’ man." -Niall

Testimony2
"Thank you a million"
"This is just a short message to thank you a million for this amazing course that you've put together and shared with the world. I love spending my evenings watching your videos. You provide solid instructions, your voice is so clear and soothing and your material caters for all sort of learning styles: from ebook to videos to try it yourself. BIG THANK YOU from Vancouver, Canada!!!" -Lara
