Napa, CA (PRWEB) August 13, 2013
Leading social e-learning platform provider, ArtistWorks, announced unprecedented response to the launch of their new Online Art School with Justin BUA.
Highlights of the first month included a highly successful pre-order program resulting in an unparalleled number of new members enjoying lessons from day one, along with thousands signing up to try this new concept in online art lessons within days of the July 16th launch.
This revolutionary new online school gives members access to a comprehensive library of super-artist Justin BUA’s pre-recorded videos online to hone their skills and learn how to draw at their own pace.
Unlike traditional one-way video learning where students can become stuck trying to put techniques into practice, members of this online learning community are enabled to submit practice videos for BUA to review and respond with his own video containing personalized feedback and additional instruction.
These Video Exchanges are paired together on the site and made available for all members to learn from, creating an ever evolving virtual master class online. With regular specific feedback on their technique, students advance rapidly.
The online school is designed for absolute beginners to seasoned artists – anyone who has the passion and the desire to create. The classically-trained, former USC instructor BUA covers drawing and acrylic painting, figure, portraits, landscapes, still life, color, perspective, light and more. He even teaches the business of art and art history. As a frequent speaker, TV guest and host, BUA is both educational and entertaining as he brings his classical art lessons to the masses.
Early student reviews are coming in and the feedback is extremely positive:
“I definitely think the feedback is incredibly valuable. This investment is more than worth it! I've never been critiqued by a professional before so this was great....this is the kind of feedback that motivates me to practice more and work towards improvement. BUA provides honest feedback that is encouraging and useful.” - Sebastian Marques, BUA Art School Student
“We are excited to apply our Video Exchange™ Learning Platform to the visual arts,” said David Butler, co-founder and CEO of ArtistWorks. “Having achieved great success in the music market, it is gratifying to see our model extended to other visually taught mediums.”
The Online Art School with Justin BUA costs $99 for three months of unlimited access, $150 for six months and $249 for 12 months.
