I'm currently using Skillshare and YouTube to primarily take watercolor and calligraphy/brush lettering courses but I find that they're kind of hit or miss, don't offer really strong foundations and don't really move past a beginner/intermediate level. I'm looking for strong alternatives specifically for drawing and painting. Ideally something more in-depth like an academic university course (yes, I could enroll in in-person courses, but that's not necessarily fitting with my budget and schedule right now so I'd rather stick with online options and books for now
Right now I'm looking at New Masters Academy and Artists Network. I know of Draw A Box but I've tried it and really did not enjoy it. I could try it again, but I'd like to look into other options first. I also know of Proko.
I'd appreciate any feedback on the sites I mentioned and other recommendations.
Thanks so much!
