A path to expressing visual music and poetry in your painting

After completing my first year of studies, VAA has exceeded my expectations. Barry Raybould’s model of visual music and poetry is a beautifully descriptive and innovative way to study painting and art as a whole. VAA is all-encompassing, from color theory and composition to studying the masters, old and new. Each lesson connects to form a pathway towards learning how to create expressive fine art. I can work at my own pace, unlike a workshop or class where there’s no time to linger over a project and really absorb the concept. The student community is kind, supportive and nonjudgmental, which lends itself to a sense of camaraderie among the artists.
