Welcome Michelle!:wave: :clap: :clap:

Thank you very much for your lessons. So kind of you to share this information.

I can finally sleep well from now on knowing that there is solid infomation to rely on for good teaching tools as though there are plenty of books on art teaching in Holland there are hardly any practical information how to organize the lessons best.
Thank you.

I've just joined this website and I'm so glad I found this info!! There's so much here I didn't really know where to start. Now, it's just a matter of finding the time ......

Thanks for lumping all these together! Michelle

08-11-2007, 07:03 PM
I have a question: I just subscribed to this list and saw that the lesson 1 to 23 are in pdf. I suppose this means that I cannot send in any exercises??
From where on can I follow the classes than and how does that work

08-11-2007, 10:49 PM
Willemien, the classes are in the main part of the classroom forum. they are ongoing and you can post to them.

08-17-2007, 04:56 AM
When I click on the link I get a file not found notice and to go to
www.atreesse.com ...where I couldn't find any pdf's.... any suggestions ????
PS Found them on the site in the HOME menu...WOW lots of info there!!!!

08-17-2007, 08:52 AM

08-20-2007, 07:38 PM
^ Oh, thank you for sharing that. :D

08-20-2007, 11:34 PM
YEAH...our pdf files are like desert nomads--they move from place to place. Let's all thank Ann Bruckner for giving our wanderers a home. She does us a great service by hosting these and I don't think we ever thanked her. Well here is my heartfelt thanks!

09-01-2007, 10:35 PM
I would love to have these pdf files! Having trouble finding them, tho. I have tried all the links here and none are working for me. Have they moved again? HELP! Thanks....

I've been in and out of WC a couple of times, but I'm back again. I shall be the good penny. But, I get 404 when I link to the 23 pdf files for the first lessons. Any help? Or, is it too late and are they in the blackhole of cyberspace.


10-28-2007, 06:49 PM
Hi Carla.

I had the same problem so I have been working right from the classes. It isn't too hard to do. I've made it through to Class 9 so far. Welcome back.:wave:


10-28-2007, 08:16 PM
Well, thank you Doug. I can follow directions - mostly.


11-15-2007, 05:23 AM
Hi jasmine here I cant get the link too open it goes too someones site? thankyou .

11-15-2007, 01:30 PM
Hi Jasmine,
That's correct, but still this is the correct side, although, going this way doesn't work, so
Go to: www.atreese.com.
choose the home button - another menu will open - choose: Wet Canvas pdf and there you can find the lessons you want to see.

Best regards, Willy

11-15-2007, 02:42 PM
Not sure exactly what problems y'all are having but this link takes you directly to the PDFs on Ann Buckner's website.

She is kind enough to host them for us.:clap::clap:


There is a typo in Willemein's post. Ann's home page is www.atreesse.com (http://www.atreesse.com)


11-15-2007, 03:17 PM
Hi Joe,

First I am also very happy with the host of Ann Buckner's site :clap: :clap:
and I am happy that I found a way to go there.
If I click on the link at the Wet Canvas Classroom, it gives me the following url:
http://www.atreesse.com/wetcanvasdrawingpdf.html (this is different from the one you get and which brings you directly to the right place :confused: )
with the announcement: :"this page cannot be found"
Probably Jasmine has the same problem.
Another way to go there (because I love the way she has put it together :thumbsup: ) is the url I adviced to Jasmine.
No idea, why I get the wrong url

Best regards, Willy

11-15-2007, 06:30 PM
I promise, I'll try.

11-18-2007, 10:34 PM

I am confused. I would like to take the drawing classes. Do I just do this on my own or is there a way for me to post the drawings for critique? It sounds as though this is done in specified period of time and that completed assignments are posted weekly all at once. Please explain to a newbie how I can best benefit from this course.

12-07-2007, 01:43 AM
I am trying to hook up with these pdf lessons 1-2 3 and I cannot get thru . Will someone please give me the correct sight. I really want to learn Bars:wave:

12-08-2007, 10:59 AM
The current URL is http://www.atreesse.com/home/wetcanvaspdf.html


12-08-2007, 11:04 AM
Scene Chaser - I don't know if you ever got a reply but the lessons are continuously ongoing. Just read the lesson, do the assignments and then post your work. One of the guides or instructors will respond.


12-10-2007, 05:10 PM
Sadly, that link gives me a 404 error and so I cannot download the PDFs. Is there a newer working URL?

12-10-2007, 05:15 PM
I'm having the same problem - the links are broken.

12-10-2007, 11:39 PM
My drawing needs LOTS of work - but will try. Secondly, I am sort of a computer illiterate and not sure how to "post" drawings, etc., if that time should come. Also, asked to see the "Basic 101 Classes 1 thru 23 - Pdf's", but can't get. And what is Pdf's?

12-11-2007, 01:05 AM
Try THIS link:


Hope this helps. :thumbsup:

12-18-2007, 05:05 PM
Hi I am a newbie and want to download the classes. Neither link works, comes up 404 not found. Can anyone help me?
Thanks, Dana

12-18-2007, 05:07 PM
Oops, Didn't see the last link. It works and thanks Susie.

Thanks, Dana

01-01-2008, 11:45 AM
Just a note to all, I tried that last link and it didn't work for me, but this one did:


These pdf's are very helpful - thanks for putting them together!


01-08-2008, 06:50 PM

Go here to the classroom (http://wetcanvas.com/forums/forumdisplay.php?f=335) and click on the Pre-class assignment and go from there.


01-21-2008, 10:42 PM
:D Thank you so much. I am currently taking a class on Perspective and this just really helps me out so much!!! You really just don't know how much I appreciate these .pdfs!! There are not enough words to show you how much! :wave:

02-19-2008, 01:41 AM
I want to thank you for the PDF's I did get. The Basic 101 Classes 1 thru 23 site apparently is no longer available ... probably exactly what a newbie like me needs ... oh woe is me!:confused: The same is true of the tree tutorial PDF. I love the PDF format. It enables me to work right at my computer without having to print out all those pages! Again, thanks so much.:clap: :wave:

02-20-2008, 07:48 PM
Thank you from a new member and someone who is trying to learn basics. Thank you:music: :thumbsup:

03-26-2008, 06:33 AM
Thank you so much for these instructions. I'll try to do these lessons.


04-01-2008, 05:41 AM
Dear Wet Canvas,
I tried to open Basic 101 lessons 1 through 23 PDF.
It was not open.
Hopefully you can fix it.

I can't get the PDF files to work either.

05-15-2008, 08:22 PM
Just bring the PDF location (http://www.atreesse.com/home/wetcanvaspdf.html) to the top again!

06-04-2008, 08:33 PM
Are these PDF's still available? The links don't work for me. I had high hopes of being able to get them so I could benefit from them at my own pace. Hope someone can help. :o Sorry, never mind...must have been a computer glitch. I look forward to learning from them.

06-04-2008, 08:41 PM
Donna...did you click on the link I gave in my last post...or the one at the beginning of the thread...Mine works!:wink2:

09-11-2008, 03:08 AM
I was wondering where do you post the assignments? Here right? I just did the Pre-assignment and I was just wondering

09-20-2008, 06:23 AM
:clap: Oh this is so awesome! Finally I can explore my artistic side, and not have to go for lessons, which i cant afford now. Thank you so much for this - everyone involved in getting this together! :clap: :clap: :clap:

09-20-2008, 07:27 AM
macCALICOmac and Mwp1988 -
I just spotted these posts of yours and wanted to say I am just starting these classes myself. I do hope you will join in and post on the threads, i don't want to be all alone. Post your pre class assignment in the pre class assignment thread and then go on to Class 101 Basics thread and post lines/circles chair etc.
Look forward to meeting you there.

10-29-2008, 09:08 AM
I have to offer my apologies to everyone that couldn't connect to the .pdf files. I haven't been to the Drawing Classroom in awhile and didn't think about the links becoming broken when the files were moved. I will make sure the link stays the same now that I realize what has happened in the past. The correct link is: http://atreesse.com/home/wetcanvaspdf.html

10-29-2008, 01:12 PM
Thanks Ann...it's very kind of you to still host it!:D

10-29-2008, 04:39 PM
It is my pleasure to be able to post the .pdf files. I just added the .pdf's, in three sections, for the Intermediate Perspective from BD102. I had to split that .pdf as it was so large.

01-13-2009, 11:18 PM
:wave: Wow! Thanks!!! I could use a refresher course! I KNOW these will be an awesome help for me, and my kids! They love to draw too lol.


Now... where'd I put that pencil? (looks under sofa cushion and finds an old beat up m&m) That's a start!... but no pencil... :evil: :D

06-22-2009, 06:13 PM
I find it great,you learn every day from other artist.you did a great job.
god blesse you

08-30-2009, 07:19 PM
Just putting the PDF files link (http://atreesse.com/home/wetcanvaspdf.html) back to the top! :D

Thanks :thumbsup: :thumbsup: for putting the PDF files up for us. I appreciate it. It will allow me to read and study without having to be in front of my computer.
