My goal is to give you the equivalent or better education than you would get at a prestigious Art Academy or Art University.
If you travel long distance to learn from a top professional painter, just a single week-long workshop will cost you between $2,000 and $3,000 taking into account the cost of tuition, air fares, car rental, food and lodging.
Tuition and fees for an Art Academy such as the Master of Fine Art program at the Academy of Art University San Francisco will cost you $20,797 every year.
How The Membership Works
You pay a simple monthly membership fee in order to get access to my Virtual Art School. You can cancel anytime and owe nothing more. All members of my online art school get:
- My 15-minute-a-week, Learn From The Masters℠ Program― This is a year-long program of online painting classes, in which you get 52 assignments, selected from the my full Apprentice Program, designed to teach you all the key principles that master painters over the centuries used to make their paintings great. This is a great option if you don’t have a lot of time. Suitable for all art enthusiasts, not just painters.
- A new Apprentice Program workshop released every month (16 workshops in total). You will get the same information as if you were taking a one-week workshop with a top professional artist every month, but without the duplication. Over the four-year program you won’t have any gaps in your knowledge holding you back, and your paintings are bound to improve — read what my students have to say.
- Access to an app for your computer, tablet, or smart phone to keep up with all the daily interesting discussions on painting as well as chat to fellow students. Whenever you have ten minutes to spare, you can be learning.
- If you are an absolute beginner, you can take advantage of my special Foundation painting workshop that will help you get started in painting. Absolute beginners welcome, no experience in either painting or drawing is needed – the Foundation Workshop covers all the basics! (oils/acrylics or watercolors), plus a basic drawing course designed for people who have never drawn before.
- Instant access to 350 structured assignments to help you develop your skills covering all 9 Building Blocks of the online paintings classes curriculum. You can check the activity in all 9 Building Block on your phone and learn something new every day.
In addition, my Spiral of Learning℠ members get even more benefits:
- My special lecture series of Zoom meetings for more experienced painters that will take your painting to an even higher level, plus
- A new book every month from my Virtual Art Academy® eLibrary — a comprehensive eLibrary of books on art that I wrote, with over a thousand pages of all the principles and techniques on how to paint that you could ever want to know. Read more about the eLibrary here.
The regular cost of a Spiral of Learning℠ 2023 membership is $200 per month. We currently have a special discount. You can get the Spiral of Learning 2023 option for only $89 per month (plus tax, if applicable), a saving of $111 per month. This offer is limited to the first 200 students who apply, after which the price will be the full $200 per month.
