Welcome to Art Lessons on Video!
Have you always wanted to learn how to draw and how to paint what you see, or just want to improve your self-expression on different art styles?...
On our pages, you will find online art lessons with drawing tutorials explained step by step. They include drawing lessons where you learn how to draw people, faces, animals, flowers, landscape drawings and also figure drawing. The art lessons on our "how to paint" section contain easy to follow painting techniques to help you succeed with landscapes, figure, animals and flower painting, while your learn acrylic, oil and watercolor techniques. Also, in the same section there are art lessons about color theory and the color wheel that may assist you with your entire color mixing.
This is something I observed throughout my years of working in art:
Drawing and painting are skills that can be acquired;
all you need is passion, practice and good guidance to develop.
Everybody who learns the basics of drawing and painting whilst given support and confidence can produce artworks that would make them feel proud and amazed at themselves. There is no need to go through a lengthy and boring learning to produce works of art. I have seen many people that have never followed extensive academic studies and still they are excellent artists! The simple but BIG difference is in how they observe, how they “see” the world around them; also in the way they pay attention to the fundamentals and the materials they use.
One of my endeavors in these free art lessons on video is to encourage and guide you while you learn to draw anything you want. Furthermore, how to make that important visual contact so you can produce a realistic drawing of what is in front of your eyes and render it as it is and not how you may “think” it is. To do this you don’t need any special talent to achieve a beautiful drawing or painting… So please, leave all fears behind! –Fear is a negative block for your creativity- Even the most famous artists had to learn, practice, and make many mistakes while improving their skills to produce masterpieces! From now on during your first attempts, have in mind these words: “I CAN DO IT!”... And with this enthusiasm, get your pencils or brushes ready to do something new and exciting.
“If you hear a voice within you say 'you cannot paint,' then by all means PAINT,
and that voice will be silenced” - Vincent Van Gogh
Once you have a little more practice, you will also know how to draw and paint those artworks you had in your mind for a long time.
The most important thing is: with the help of our art lessons on video you’ll love what you do...
There are many questions that any student in drawing and painting ask at a time of their learning, (and I have also asked myself): What is art? What does it means to be creative? Perhaps the response lies within you, not just in complicated theories, art books or academies. You will find all answers reflected in your artwork; so let your creative mind guide you, do not be afraid. Take this artistic activity as a form of meditation, where the silence in your head is the only “language”; from this silence allow your mind to express itself, just let it flow…
“I have a tremendous lucidity at moments when nature is so beautiful.
I am not conscious of myself and the pictures come to me as if in a dream”
Vincent Van Gogh
