Online Learning

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!

Re: Online Learning

I am also looking around the web to get better. I am pretty much a beginner. So, my ideas may not be the best to follow.

I got some DVD's from an artist. This was watching him to paint and as he gives information of what he does then try to repeat on your own. Then I would send the photo of my painting and he would give feedback. That kind of got me started but I did not feel I learned much. Now I follow Dianne Mize: She has lots of free youtube videos as well as some courses that can be bought. What I like is she teaches technique rather that asking to follow her painting. Check her out.
C&C always welcome
