Why do students choose my Virtual Art Academy?
There are two key differences between the Virtual Art Academy and other online art schools:
- I do not enforce any particular style of painting, as do many teachers. Instead I concentrate on the core principles that underly all great paintings. This means that if you choose the Virtual Art Academy, you do not end up being a clone of your teacher, but instead, learn to express yourself using your own voice and creativity. Just look at the variety of styles in the work of my alumni students.
- The information in the Virtual Art Academy covers the full spectrum of information from absolute beginners, all the way to top professional level. This is why many professional artists choose the Virtual Art Academy to fill in the gaps in their knowledge and bring their painting to an even higher level.
Virtual Art Academy Professional Alumni
Here are some of the artists I have helped over the years. Some were already successful artists before they joined my Virtual Art Academy, who chose the Virtual Art Academy® Apprentice Program to further their skills.
Others had never painted before, and took my Apprentice Program, going from absolute beginner, to becoming a fully professional artist and selling in galleries―in only four years.
