Measuring Demonstration, Landscape Painting Fundamentals Course by Dan Schultz

I’m excited to announce the launch of my new online painting curriculum, Landscape Painting Fundamentals. The course is part of the growing collection of instructional video lessons by professional artists through Sentient Academy.

The course is $15 per month, and you receive one pre-recorded lesson lasting about an hour each week. Practice as much as you wish between lessons to improve your learning.

It has all been filmed in high-quality 4K and is ready to stream from the Sentient Academy website. There are plenty of demonstrations and exercises you can do to improve your painting ability.
