Painting Basics Premium Track

The Painting Basics Premium Track will help you develop a foundation for painting. It covers basic skills like color theory, brush technique, composition, transparent vs. opaque paint, and more. The prompts will challenge you to jump around between figurative, abstract, and still life topics to expand your personal repertoire in painting.

Here is your opportunity to work with attention and comprehensive support from Prof Lieu and the Art Prof staff. Hear Prof Lieu’s explanation of how our premium courses work in this video.

When you are learning on your own, it can be challenging to pace yourself, know what direction to go in, and what skills you’ll need. We’ll take that out of your hands and provide a structure that you can work within to keep you on task.

Free Track vs. Premium Track

The free track and premium track use the same curriculum. The Painting Basics Track is available for free; you can work on it by yourself at any pace.

The difference is that the premium track provides guidance and support through weekly voice sessions and critiques from the Art Prof staff.

About our Staff

Prof Lieu and our Teaching Artists have many years teaching experience both online and in brick and mortar classrooms. We’ll kick your butt (if you want us to that is) and keep you on task as you develop your skills and art practice.

Art Supplies

We understand that many people have limited budgets for supplies, so our premium tracks are structured so that you can use any materials you want, within that track’s focus.

For example, if you are doing the Painting Premium Track, you could choose any paint media: watercolor, gouache, acryl gouache, acrylic, oils, water mixable oils, ink wash, etc. We provide a supply list with recommended supplies for each paint media and are happy to provide further support, but you can work with whatever you have! Same with digital software: you can use Procreate, Photoshop, Krita, whatever you have access to.

Supply Lists: Painting Media

watercolor, gouache, acryl gouache, acrylic, oils, water mixable oils, ink wash, liquid watercolor, alcohol inks
