Students love my art courses!

Learn a little about me, the course itself and listen to some past students talking about their experiences.

Anyone can paint

if they are given the right instructions

If you have never picked up a paintbrush before, this step-by-step course will give you the technical skills and knowledge to help fast-track your painting process and to produce stunning works of art of your own.

The Course has been designed by me - Master Artist Marcel Desbiens - and has been developed over a number of years in a real-life art school environment.

You will learn how to:

set up your workstation to minimise mess and maximise your painting time

understand basic principles of colour mixing and paint consistency

• control tone to create the optical illusion of reality

• choose the right brushes and develop effective brush techniques

• clean and care for your brushes

• paint using the traditional glazing techniques of the old masters

And, you will be able to apply the techniques you learn in this course to any contemporary practice.

In each class, I will give a step-by-step demonstration and then it’s your turn for hands-on painting exercises.

Each exercise builds on the previous one so with each lesson your skills and confidence will grow.

Hi, I’m Marcel Desbiens

When I was young, I dreamed of becoming an artist one day. This idea kept me on track as I always drew or painted when I could between schooling. Sharing knowledge is very important for me. This is my humble participation for making a better world around us.
