by Beth Samek, Online Education Manager at Artist’s Network University
New classes start each week at Artist’s Network University. Covering a wide variety of media and subjects, these classes attract students of all skill levels and backgrounds from around the world. With guidance and instruction from our expert instructors, students create great work that really shows what’s possible at Artist’s Network University.
Below you’ll see just what some of our students have been up to!
Michelle Hendry, Creative Explorations in Mixed Media: 2D, 3D and Beyond! with Lisa Cyr
“I really enjoyed Lisa’s course. It was one of those experiences where you got what you put in. Lisa promoted pushing the boundaries and thinking about art as an idea not only an aesthetic. She encouraged the use of new materials in our work and showed us what was possible with videos from the cutting edge of painting and where painting merges with technology, assemblage, etc by artists leading in their fields. Lisa’s enthusiasm and energy were contagious.” Said Michelle.
Chris Brothers, Capturing the Likeness with K. Hu
K. Hu likes to see the transformation that takes place between the beginning and end of the course, saying they’re, “sooo awesome.” Chris says she still references K’s valuable feedback on current drawings.
Doug Wasilieff, Watercolor for the Absolute Beginner with Annie Strack
“Annie has been fantastic! She doesn’t just give you a short comment on your assignments, she explains what you have done correctly and she will tell you how to improve on other things. She also gives you encouragement and quickly answers any questions you have. It doesn’t even have to be covered in the course. She shares her knowledge willingly. Her responses are not just a couple of sentences. She puts a lot of thought into her answers. I couldn’t ask for a better teacher.” He said.
“I have taken several courses through ANU over the past few years and Grant Fuller is one of the best teachers I had with your organization. He is very responsive to the assignments and gives excellent assessments and helpful suggestions. I would certainly recommend him to other students and would gladly take another class with him,” she said.
