The Virtual Art Academy® Painting Course
The Virtual Art Academy® is a professionally authored, academy-level series of self-study courses for learning how to paint in oils, acrylics, or watercolors. The program is easy to fit into your schedule since you study in your own home, and at your own pace.
Integrated into the program is an online campus where you can interact with students from all over the world to motivate and support you on your artistic journey.
Comparable in scope to university art courses that cost upwards of $10,000 per year, the Virtual Art Academy is an affordable and flexible alternative. The full program consisting of 56 course units (in pdf format) is beautifully illustrated with extensive examples of the author's own work and of the old masters, making the principles of painting clear and easy to understand.
