  1. When I first signed up, imagine my delight hearing that a new course was starting. A course in my preferred medium! It has been a pleasure learning from you Matt. Thank you for for sharing your time and talent with us.

  2. Congratulations on a brilliant course. I have watched all the episodes before even putting pencil to paper so I know what I’m going to be completing, and I’ve thoroughly enjoyed every minute of the viewing. I’ve also learned a lot just by watching 🙂

    Next step… actually completing the projects 🙂

  3. hi my name is Ibolya and i am from Perth western Australia and a friend referred me to this site/course and i am loving every minute of what i have watched so far. I have been wanting to learn how to draw for ever and now with this great teaching and watching…. i am a watch and do person…(sorry cant remember the actual name of a person like that..) i know exactly where to start and practice to become better. Matt you must have put a lot of effort into doing all this and want to say you have done a great job. thank you.

  4. As a member of this great site it has broadened my artistic scope in several mediums. While the cost for this program increased for the first time, I still find it is a huge benefit given the many various applications and wonderful instructions that are given for various mediums. Matt has put together a fantastic and varied program for beginners and advanced artists. What I love most is the ability to have continued access to all the different tutorials and, as a bonus, Matt is always willing to answer questions we students might have as we go along. This is my third year as a virtual instructor member. As a student I’ve increased my artistic abilities, as well, I’ve been able to teach others what I’ve learned and broadened in my own style of work. Thanks, Matt, for offering such a benefit for artists to grow in their abilities and learning how to love the joy of art making.

  5. I love everything about this site. If ever I have a spare minute I go to it and learn something new or relearn something that is now new. Matt, my only suggestion is that you somehow post a larger drawing of the finished product. For this I mean….I am working on the wine bottle still life, and could really appreciate a larger picture than you are showing. Perhaps that means I am relying on your work too much? Thanks so much for pulling me back to art. You also feel not like a teacher but a good friend.

      • Thank you, Matt, for the excellent lessons in rendering colored pencil. It is a good medium for illustrating children’s books and you so clearly demonstrated some of the procedures that caused me to struggle…especially the underpainting for producing different shades of green in an all green landscape. It will help to give color variation to an orchard of Granny Smith apples.

        My facorite lesson was Willie. My husband was really impressed with my work on that one. Ioved it. You have a beautiful dog right down to the twinke in his eye. I bet he’s a lot of fun. I’m going to paint a picture of our Papillion, Cody.

        In my drawing classes students often ask me how much practice I require from them. My question back to them is “How good do you want to be?” I agree with you. Practice is the key to better work – not only in art. Thank you for a great class. I’m looking forward to my next one. pj

    raquel

  7. I brought up a problem some time ago on a different course and if I received a reply, I don’t know how to access it. (And I have forgotten which course/module it was.) My problem is that my computer (a MacBook pro with MacOS Sierra software) does not play the videos no matter which version I choose. Is there a special program I need to download to play your videos?

    Can you answer me with an email to my email address? I think you have it in your computer under my profile.

    Marc

    • Hi Marc,

      I’ll send an email to you as well. It sounds as though you having trouble playing the downloaded files – is this correct? Your Mac will already have Quicktime installed and you should not need an additional program. That being said, if you want to try another one for playing the video files, you can try the open source VLC player. It’s free. You can download it here…https://www.videolan.org/vlc/index.html

      Are you seeing the files after you download them? When you open them, what is the error message?
