How It Works

Painting with Georgia is a comprehensive online video program that will teach you how to paint with acrylics. The purpose of the videos lessons is to give you a solid foundation in choosing the right supplies, using colour, techniques for achieving realistic effects, and moving from simple structure and composition to realistically detailed finishing touches. The lessons can be purchased individually or in packages. Each video class is approximately 30-35 minutes in duration.
