What Students Say

"This is a really good course. Very clearly presented, well explained and with an excellent variety of projects. Thank you." -Marie

"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." -Ron
