One of the reasons I absolutely love teaching painting is getting sent emails like the one I just got from Jola Kedra. Jola first took our free five day course to learn about the Moore Method of Painting. She then got all of our painting courses and joined up to the Learn To Paint Club.
Here is what Jola said in her email:
I am not sure if I am finished with this one or not yet but that is where I left it last night. I just wanted to share my thrill of finding your school and following your methods of teaching.
I have been painting, mostly tutorials, for a year and a half now. There is a galore of the books and stuff online, but some are total waste of time. Your is so far not. On the contrary, you’re an excellent teacher, clear, simple, concise and easy to follow. Teaching is an art in itself.
Also, I can’t believe you’re a one person business. You film yourself, edit, promote and sell it. Wow! Great inspiration for people like me.
As a kid I dreamed of being an artist but… life took me a different path and I haven’t done anything for some forty years. Going through some not so great time of my life and probably subconsciously, looking for a mental lift from my black, deep hole of hopelessness and despair, I started doodling and soon figured out that I don’t have to wait till I retire to go back to my dreams.
But, yes I have to work to afford pursuing this lost dream of mine, so I don’t have a lot of spare time. Your method is straightforward and makes the use of my time very efficient. Also, the acrylic painting done your method has a fresh, not overworked and overdone look.
