At Art Classes by Benjamin you will acquire skills and techniques that you can use in your own artworks. You’re not just going to follow along and copy, as so many courses and videos do. I’m going to show you things in such a way, that you will be able to take these acquired skills and actually apply them to your work on your own. Starting at a very basic level, step by step I’m going to take you through all you need to know. Gradually I'll be revealing more advanced things. Again, my method is in such a way that you can eventually use it all on your own. Even if you have a certain skill level already, you’ll be surprised what you still can glean from my art classes.
My classes follow well structured lesson plans. No seemingly random and unrelated lessons, but a logic setup. Clear examples, good instructions and well thought out assignments, all with one thing in mind….. to help you use those materials you've got. Each lesson reveals something new to you, adding something to your knowledge or skill set. Each lesson builds on the previous one, leading you to a final assignment that you can, by then, work out all on your own. Each Art Class will also have some bonus lessons with some extras for enhancing your techniques.
While there is theory in this course, I’m not going to bore you with it. Instead I’m going to break down the theory in such a way that you can discover how to apply it. My unique approach will make even hard subjects like light and shadows or using colors understandable. You gain insight into how to apply techniques and theory, applying unique methods that you can use on any artwork you’ll be creating.
You don't need a certain skill level
How about Skills? While for some workshops a certain skill level is required, all my classes can be followed at any skill level, from absolute beginner to artists who are more advanced already. A more skilled person will need less time to finish the Art Class, but someone who's just starting their art journey can dive right into it.
You can work with any brand (or non-brand) art supply
Some art courses out there, even if they don't mention it, are brand related or can only be done with a certain type of supply. You need specific items to successfully do a course. Most of my art classes are not related to a certain brand or supply, they can be done with any brand or type of material.
For workshops this may differ since some of them are based on a certain type of tool. Some courses may need specific supplies, the material list will specify this.
I try to work brand independent and most of our art classes and workshops work fine with cheaper materials, as well as expensive ones. In the end it's not the tool that really matters, but the skills of the artist and I try to focus on showing you techniques that you can use with your supplies. So no surprises halfway through the course realizing you bought the wrong brand.
