Our workshops are a safe, inclusive learning environment for all artists to get personalized feedback that will serve your needs.

Watch Sample Workshops

We meet students where they are at in these workshops, whether you are an absolute beginner or a more experienced artist.

Our staff makes every effort to provide encouragement and advice that is custom tailored to your concerns and progress as an artist.

“I found that the resources were extremely detailed and I could prepare for the workshop beforehand (read the workshop guide and have a look at the presentation)

It was all so extremely detailed and well-prepared. You could see that you (and your team) put a lot of effort and time in everything. I am a sucker for good teaching materials and the quality of everything stood out.”

Collage & Mixed Media Workshop

I have done many workshops elsewhere and they weren’t live. I learned from them but something was missing something ‘feedback.’ I would get a ‘well done or ‘that’s a compelling portrait.’

That does not help at all when you want to grow as an artist. Art Prof workshops are interactive. Prof Lieu gives feedback and resources to help . You don’t just learn from Prof Lieu, you learn from others as well.

Composition & Thumbnails Workshop

Portraits: Expressionistic Color Workshop

The workshop guide was great and well prepared. The site and resources were terrific, it’s so great to have the warm-up videos and reference photos before the event to get prepared. The video of the example class was really useful for setting expectations.

A calm learning environment that encourages skill growth that helps the students individual needs, Prof Lieu is a amazing instructor and being able to use voice chat makes online learning worthwhile.”

“The collaborative energy during the workshop made for a great experience! Seeing what others are working on and seeing the changes implemented in their work is always interesting.

I find I learn a little bit every time I watch other people in the Art Prof community work on their projects. The on the go feedback from Prof Lieu was awesome too—it helped me make changes that improved my piece, ones I might not have seen if I’d been working alone!”

Discord is new to me. Prof Lieu went out of her way to help set me up on the application ahead of the scheduled class.

She answered my questions about the application and resolved technical issues promptly. As a result, the use of Discord went smoothly.

“Fabulous feedback from Prof Lieu as I was going along. This taught me and helped make this piece recognizable!

It is amazing to see the evolution of other students work in real time. So much learning also from each other.”

Written Feedback

In addition to the voice session, students also get written feedback the week before, and the week after the workshop from Prof Lieu in the Discord.

“I loved using the timed drawing videos, I really appreciate that these videos aren’t workshop exclusive either so I can revisit them in my own time, after the workshop has passed.

The quality of said drawing videos are great too! I honestly wouldn’t mind more of these types of videos.”

“The most valuable aspect was the one-on-one critique and suggestions given by Prof Lieu.

Secondly, witnessing the one-on-one feedback of other workshop members provided more opportunities to learn things that I have yet to face or consider.”
