    I want to be an artist and I’m using this blog as my entry to this field. Thanks for a great blog.

  6. Oh my. I love Learn to Art becasue this website eventually saved me from my assignments on figure drawing! Of course, I love art too 🙂 I improved alot just getting lessons from this site! 😀

    Suggestions i would like to give is, maybe your website could get a few tutors to tape their lessons differently. Because not everyone gets to understand a particular person’s teaching, right?

    Anyway, GOOD SITE!
