Painting by Juan Rames
I grew up in a remote village with access to art teachers and art schools. The first time I tried oil painting was about 5 years ago, when I moved to a city and found new friends among artists. My wife says I have art talent. She is very supportive and I think she likes my art, but I know how much I have to learn to paint professionally.
I found Old Masters Academy video lessons when searched youtube for painting tutorials. I think this one of the best art courses on the Internet that can teach me all I want to know about mixing colors, using layers and glazings. I have some art books about oil painting, but watching a master painting in front of my eyes is totally different experience. That is why I want to become an Old Masters Academy student.

I picked up the painting brush 2 yrs ago and my life has changed since. It was a calling. I never painted before and didn’t know how.
I am interested in portraits mostly, and would love to paint like old masters.
My favorite artist is Rembrandt. Last year I went to Amsterdam to see how he used to live. I am very passionate and give 150 percent to developing myself everyday. I my intention is to bring healing with my art. I used to be a healer before I picked up the painting brush. …
Paintings by Jireh Brian Dimalanta
My name is Brian and I’m a 17 years old artist from the Philippines. When I was a child I never really had a passion for arts but back in 2014 when I was just 14 years old, a fateful encountered happened when I saw a 5 tubes set of Daler Rowney Georgian Oil Paint on our local stationery. I was wondering why would five tubes of paint be so expensive and because of my curiosity and I bought it without knowing that those five tubes of paint would push me so far into the art world.
One of the greatest challenge that I’m facing right now is that there are only few ateliers that teaches the classical method and even if there are some I can’t afford. I always wanted to enroll in a traditional art class because I wanted to learn the sophisticated and disciplined way of painting of the masters and I am sure that with the Old Masters academy and their passion to share their knowledge in arts, I will be able to achieve such level of expertise. …

New York is a magical place, I met a lot of artists here and I got inspired by them. Also, the museums in New York always there to give me numerous resource to learn. I am interested in the old master style of painting. I try to figure out their techniques. I find it hard to make a consistent process of painting like the old masters do.
I would like to learn more about the process and sequence of every step to finish an old master style painting. I think the Old Master Academy is a perfect place for an artist like me who want to learn the old master techniques.
Also, the online resource is really convenient for everyone who doesn’t have time to go to school. …

Hello! I’m Daniela I live in Portugal and I’m 44 years old.
I love to paint. Painting allows me to access parts of myself that I do not know. When I paint I’m always happy.
I would like to win this course because the kind of painting I practice is intuitive and expressive. Getting to learn how to paint like the old masters would be amazing! I think the combination of these two art forms could result in very interesting works. …
