New York, NY (PRWEB) July 12, 2014
Leonardo Pereznieto is teaching millions of people how to draw through video tutorials. He started his Youtube channel uploading drawing tutorials in English about two years ago on his Youtube channel, "Fine Art-Tips." He opened a parallel channel shortly afterwards where he uploads the same videos narrated in Spanish, "Arte Divierte." These tutorials are also subtitled in as many as 15 languages. His videos have been watched almost 50 million times.
We live in an era where we can learn practically any subject from the comfort of our homes. Modern media gives us the opportunity to learn from the best, no matter where we are, and we can do this for free.
This is the case of millions of people who are availing themselves of the art techniques shown by Mr. Pereznieto. Many of these students live in towns in remote countries where they, up to now, didn’t have access to art teachers or art schools. Many do not have the means to pay for instruction.
Through these tutorials, people of every age, are materializing their artistic dream. Here are a few success stories from them:
"I’d like to thank you because thanks to you I was able to feel the joy of drawing again. You are a great artist and I wish you the best of successes." - YS

"I must say, you have inspired me to become the person I am today. Because of you, I have learnt so much about fine art and developing my skills! Please keep doing what you're doing so other people can follow in your footsteps as I have :) Your videos show that perfection can be achieved.” - BU
