“The Patreon group has great peers for me, (others with similar experience and interests) and it’s easier for me to remember people in the smaller group. I even met up with one of the Patreon group to go on a museum visit!”

“There are very few places where fine artists congregate and actually discuss and critique art and support each other with their knowledge, observations and encouragement.”
Critiques & support from Prof Lieu
“Art Prof fill the gaps in my self-taught practice through rigor, community and critique.
I’m not inclined to enroll in art school for a number of reasons, but Art Prof has such robust content delivered through user-friendly platforms and skilled teaching artists who are invested in our growth, I don’t need a formal academic program.”
Connect with artists in a small group
“This is the only art community I feel comfortable being in. It is the feeling of close ‘family and friends’ connection with Prof Lieu and other learners.”
“Anyone, of any ability level is welcome and treated the same as someone who’s been doing art for a long time, or even professionally.”
“Art Prof promotes a very civil, kind, and encouraging culture. I love that in videos and streams that you’re not afraid to show mistakes! This brings a very human touch to the tutorials and discussions that you share.”
“I feel like there’s a more consistent community in the Patreon group — I’m making more personal connections with people than in the public Discord channels, plus more access to Prof Lieu.
She has a magical ability to help me see connections in my current work/interests to my early art experiences.”
“I feel that Prof Lieu genuinely cares about our progress. I don’t think this is the case in most other online art communities.”
