What Students Say
"I consider myself an intermediate painter and have taken many workshops and online courses, and I must say this goes to the top of the list. Very clear and broken down into important steps. Your videos are well created to show all that you’re doing. The fact that you’re willing to answer questions along the way adds to the impact. I am truly enjoying learning about and playing with this new medium. THANK YOU!!" - Karen, USA "Your demos are really informative. I’m loving this online format.
"The mark of a great teacher is that they want you to be as good or even better than they are. That allows them to not hold back and to deliver what’s needed to achieve results. Lena Rivo has truly delivered as a great teacher. The course is easily as excellent as her paintings. I found myself repeatedly thinking that she has anticipated every difficulty and provided concise, doable approaches to working with them. And her responses to questions are similarly concise and useful. She also knows how to bring out the best in the student. I feel like I’ve got a license to paint now. Taking this class was a bit of an indulgence for me, but now seems to be one of the most worthwhile things I’ve ever done, as an artist." - James, USA
"This course is absolutely amazing. I have attempted several online courses, and this one has held my intense interest from the beginning. Thank you for such excellent work." — Barbara, USA
"Somehow, the way you teach suits me far better than workshops, books or DVDs have done, and so much is now falling into place and making real sense." - Caroline, England
It’s great to be able to go back and watch your demos again and again or stop and back up when needed. You are a terrific teacher. I can tell how much thought you have put into this workshop."
— Corrine, USA
"It is amazing how concise and clear your explanation is - no matter how many books I read, only after your lessons somehow it clicked. Your commentary is so detailed and precise - it helps a lot with understanding the principles I thought I knew before...
But theory and practice are two different things and you made practice more pleasurable and fun! Fantastic course!" —
