I need some up to date reviews on his learning program and how they have benefited you as an artist. I've seen reviews on the site, but they are a few years old, too old for me to take seriously. I would definitely love to see some before and after pics related to your studies with this program. I am considering about taking this, but I would need to know just how good this program is. Thanks! :3
I've been drawing all my life and now want to learn to paint and after a long time searching for a reasonably priced online solution, I signed up with VAA about 2-3 weeks ago. I haven't delved too far into the curriculum (I'm only 6 lessons into it) but from what I've seen and read and experienced so far with it I am very pleased and know I will learn a lot if I apply myself and do the assignments. Also, it seems like a good deal at only $20 a month. So far the lessons are very detailed and informative. - I've signed up with this one because I like what I saw. I'm not sure if I will stick through it for the entire 4 year span but hope to go through all the basics at least. There is ALOT of information in his lessons - everything from the different surfaces to paint on and what kinds of paints, brushes, solvents, mediums to use and how they are used in great detail. The first 5-6 lessons deal with identifying values in images and paintings and creating your own value scales. Then on to many lessons on the many types of Notan and other concepts before you even start using color... He's not merely teaching you how to paint but how to make powerful compositions using value and color...
