How are our V.I.E.W. workshops different than other online classes?


  • Our V.I.E.W. workshops are live, interactive and hands-on.
  • You can select from a multitude of renowned artists teaching in different media (watercolor, oil, acrylics, pastel), different styles (sketching to bigger paintings) and designed for different skill levels from beginners to advanced painters.
  • The instructors do step by steps demos, breaking up the process in manageable steps, giving you time to paint during the live session.
  • You enjoy interactivity with fellow participants.
  • The instructors review your work and give you personal constructive feedback all along the session since you will be able to show your work through the camera of your computer.
  • Q&A are welcome during the class, asking questions directly to the instructor.
  • At the end of the program, you will have at least one finished painting.
  • Most of our V.I.E.W are recorded. You will receive a link of the recorded sessions for you to download so that you can keep them forever.
