I just am tickled that I have the oppotunity to have access to these videos. I can't get around very well even though I'm only 50, I'm disabled and homebound. I wanted to take classes from the Collage, but I coundn't figgure out how to transport me and the equipment into class every day. This is truly a Godsend! :gl:

 :welcome: Linda.  You will love it here.  The instructors, Nolan and Dennis are fantastic. The videos are terrific and very easy to follow.  You will find a great little community of fellow artist from all ranges of skill, beginner to "pro".

 :welcome: Linda. You won't need any more college. Dennis and Nolan will teach you everything you'll ever need to know. The both of them have over 100 years experience in painting and, they are good at it too.

Show us your art. Let's see some of your stuff.  O0

Welcome to the family Linda.  There is plenty of room and lots to talk about here.  This is a great place to learn or help a fellow artist.  Don't be shy to ask questions.  Nolan and Dennis are our tutors/instructors...practically parents.  As fore-mentioned, they will teach you everything you need to know.  Others here are quite knowledgeable in some areas as well.  We all learn together and at different paces.

 :welcome: Hello Linda, glad you found us. There's lots to see and do and plenty of help when you need it. I think you may well exceed the rest of us...when I was 'boat-bound' for a month earlier this year I learned a lot about drawing. Have fun and hope you join us here on the forum often.  :clap:
Look forward to seeing your works of art.  :yippee:

Welcome Linda. You are so right. Not having to leave home to follow the courses is a blessing. I am looking forward to improving my skills as a painter, especially where color mixing is concerned.
