Instructional Art Videos

"These extraordinary videos have answered questions I didn't even know that I had. The conversational style of delivery, along with the close-ups of the actual painting being done, and sound principles of painting practice,  has taught me more in the last few hours of watching than I can believe."
--Diane

Videos are available to purchase on this page as digital downloads. They can also be shipped on USB card, or streamed to members of our Online Atelier.
