As some of you may know, I once taught art education to prek-8th grade students way back when I started my career in teaching. Every so often I tried to include art lessons videos into my typical teaching routine. Why? Sometimes it was just nice to hear and watch a different artists perspective on the whole outlook of what I was trying to teach. I also found that students often respond openly when uses of instruction are mixed up a bit. They are great to have on hand when you are absent and your sub is not artistic.
Moving forward in this era of "eLearning" is Folio Academy. Folio Academy has online art lessons for students of all ages who are eager to learn about art. I personally witnessed the following online "classes": Portrait Painting, How to Illustrate Children’s Books and Beginning Perspective Drawing. I was very impressed with the nature of these videos as they took you through step-by-step on how to learn the specific craft. If there were ever to be an online art degree- I would completely recommend this product to any college.
I cannot even begin to express to you the level of professionalism that I encountered with the instructors in each video. Have being to art school for my undergraduate studies, I can say with certainty that they went into more detail that I have ever experienced in a real-world studio. The lessons are taught by artists who are very knowledgeable in their field of study.
Make sure to check them out at Folio Academy.
