It is very useful to have a place where you can dry a lot of wet paintings. A drying rack for paintings is a unit with shelves in it that lets you slot your paintings in it to dry. You can buy drying racks for paintings from vendors or you can make your own.

Most off-the-shelf drying racks for paintings are made of steel. They are sometimes referred to as art drying racks. Home made ones are often made of wood.

I have been a student of VAA since 2011. I had been searching for an online art program that could assist in helping me develop as an artist. VAA is a complete program for beginners as well as advanced students of art. The course is well structured and takes you step by step so you gradually learn and understand the nuances that are essential to develop as an artist. The online academy is highly helpful. The feedback that is given helps a lot in encouraging one’s artistic ambitions. I would recommend the VAA program to all who are interested in the intellectual as well as practical side of art. The analysis of Old Masters and contemporary artists work helps one to evaluate one’s own work and set goals. The breakdown of topics and assignments helps one to fully understand and assimilate the principles. The improvement in my own work has helped to reaffirm that I have found the right program to develop as an artist.
