What I would really love is to learn how to draw professionally. Learn color theory, anatomy, perspective, proportions etc... I can draw what I look at quite good but I lack the necessary skills to one day become a professional artist.

My overall goal is to create digital art as my background in the digital media is quite strong.

I do not desire to get a degree as I have a full time job and would like to keep it till the art thing takes off.

Here is one place I found that looks not bad. Anyone tried it out? http://www.drawingprofessor.com/lessons/index.html

Thanks for your input!

go to jeff watts atelier on the web cheers

Re: Online Art Courses...

The virtual instructor is the best I have found. He was not only a professional teacher but started a whole art movement.
He also has several complete courses and many free lessons. There is a new lesson each week online open to members and if you miss it there will be a copy of it posted on the site.
The only thing that is missing is the classroom.

Re: Online Art Courses...

I've found a wonderful site by an artist named Dianne Mize. She was an art teacher for 30 years. Her videos only cost $6 a piece (which almost stopped me from trying one of them, I figured I'd be getting a short clip; but instead I got an hour long lesson that taught me more about value and using neutral colors than I've learned from full courses). I've since bought most of her videos and she is an amazing teacher who paints beautiful landscapes. Richard Schmid says in his book, 'learn from everyone; but, make sure they have something worthwhile to teach you'--Dianne has lots to teach and all of it so far is very, very worthwhile (she hits a lot of basics that those of us who are self-taught lack, plus she has a way of putting more complex concepts in a way that is very easy to understand). She so far has 13 lessons, each broken into four videos so everything is covered in depth. She releases a new video every week. She says repeatedly, she is teaching concepts that can be used in any area of art, she doesn't just do a demonstration that might show you how they do something; but not why they do it and/or when it should be done. Unlike other sites, she gets right back to you if you have a problem or a question which I found refreshing! Hope this helps others as much as she has helped me! Her site is Diannemize.com

Re: Online Art Courses...

I never tried that one out before.. I watch a lot of you tube videos, there is a Illustrator I know he has his own art page where you can sign up a monthly subscription and you can take his online courses as much as you want. He is a Children's book Illustrator named Will Terry. There is a lot of classes on drawing and traditional work. If you like Animation there is a you tube thread for Artist/Animator Aaron Blaise former Disney Animator. His site is awesome. it's called Creatureartteacher.com He teaches everything and digital media as well as traditional. His courses have different price ranges but well worth it. He also does like classes online if they fit into your work schedule. Will Terry does live courses as well. I have a lot of professional contacts let me know if you have other interests..If you like fantasy art look at http://www.donatoart.com/middleearth.html Donato is the creator of middle earth art work lord of the rings..He is a traditional fine art painter, he resides in Brooklyn NY and is in the Society of Illustrators. he works both traditionally and digital. I work ft too and a part time illustrator. I have a degree but really it's a piece of paper. You can make it without one it's just a lot harder ..

Re: Online Art Courses...

There's an advert in the latest The Artist magazine from http://www.thegreatcourses.co.uk/5artk, offering their "How to Draw" course for £34.99 (download or dvd)

I'm giving serious thought to buying it, but wondered if anyone here had any experience of it?

Thanks

Re: Online Art Courses...

I am so sorry that you felt this way. You absolutely can keep all the lessons you paid for, you only have to download them before your cancel your monthly subscription.
Please note, the subscription payment gives you access to all the extra materials available on the online campus, and allows you to post your assignments and discuss them with other students. We openly state that there is no instructor, but we have many long term students who are more than capable and willing to help all levels of students.
We have recently revamped our monthly newsletter. You can see this month's version here, and you can also sign up to receive it in your inbox.
If you will get in touch with me through our website, I will make sure you get the lessons you purchased.

I was on there for about a year and pretty well decided it was a waste of money. I would have been far better of just buying some decent reference books with all the money I outlayed.

Re: Online Art Courses...

Dianne Mize, a former high school art teacher, gives the most fantastic lessons for $10 a video (most videos are an hour long)....and she really TEACHES! She has a way of explaining things that make even the most difficult concepts seem simple. She doesn't just paint and have you follow along. At present she has 22 Lessons (each broken into 4 videos)--things like aerial perspective, texture, light and shadow, etc. I eagerly await ever Friday when she releases a new video lesson. She also has a facebook page. Wonderful lady!!

I also enjoy Dianne Mize. She also has plenty of free "quick tip" videos on Youtube. If you ask her a question, she answers it very well.

Re: Online Art Courses...

I wish there was a site for reviewing and critiquing all manner of online art classes. It is 2018 now and there are more and more people getting into the online teaching business, some obviously pushing their products, others only a step ahead of myself. And the fees are rising steadily. I need to spend wisely and need to know if there is a mechanism for honest description of online classes. Anyone have any suggestions? You can tell I've been burnt and need to be more selective, but it's like stumbling in the dark.
