Updated on May 6, 2010

Home Study Painting DVD's

If you've always wanted to learn to paint, but didn't know how to go about it, you should check out a wonderful new DVD painting course that just hit the market. The high cost of painting lessons often deters many from following their artistic dreams. At the same time, the poor quality and lack of depth with most self-study painting courses preclude them from being a worthy alternative. Well, these problems are now history since Legacy Learning Systems recently produced their Learn and Master Painting course.

If you're not familiar with Legacy Learning Systems you'll be very pleased with their array of educational courses. They've produced a number of them, many of which have won awards for excellence in education. The instructors of each are recognized experts in their particular fields and also possess superb teaching skills. With each, the presentation and video quality is always top-notch and the innovative diagrams and charts help elucidate some of the more difficult teaching points. Check out the video introduction for a sample of the quality.

Learn and Master Painting DVD's

Starting with the absolute basics, master painter Gayle Levee, guides you through all the fundamentals of painting in a clear and well-ordered fashion - all the while helping you develop your own painting style. No need to buy short and inadequate one hour video lessons that will just leave you wanting more. This learn to paint package gives you 20 DVD's worth of lessons and instruction in acrylic and oil painting.

Along with the painting DVD lessons it includes 3 music CD's to help put you in a pleasant state of mind and draw forth your artistic inspiration. Also included with the course is a thorough lesson book for you to study while away from the TV and excellent online support for all your questions and concerns as a new artist.

As with any hobby their are associated costs for materials and supplies. One good thing about the Learn and Master Painting course is that they give you two options. You can purchase just the painting course or you can get the course and a starter kit, which includes painting supplies from Winsor & Newton at substantially reduced prices.
