“I’m smiling so hard right now! I can't wait. very very exciting. Thank you guys so much for generating such great content. I've been using the courses for a few months now and am so grateful to have an art school quality education at a rate that i can afford. I went to an arts high school my junior and senior year, I got accepted to a half dozen Art Colleges, but simply couldn't get any of them financed. It's a dream come true for me. I'm getting all teary eyed writing this. Just thank you.”

Well worth the $50 a month I’ve only been using the site for a month and my work is already improving a lot. Once I’m done with the figure and head drawing by Steve Huston I’m going to jump on this! I’m looking forward to it.”
