Have you seen the NEW beginner's training samples posted on Jansen Art? Don't they look GREAT?

I don't know about you but I cannot wait until the new training classes are available. I know, I know, I have to wait just like everyone else. But as soon as Module 1 is available, I am there for the classes. I think as a beginner these will be great pieces to paint especially since they are so visually pleasing to the eye. That is very important to any newbie when they take some sort of classes. They want to learn but they also want to have a completed piece that they can be proud to tell their friends it was a piece they painted. I learned that from teaching Ceramic classes many years ago. Students want to see success. If their see success somewhat quickly then they are more apt to continue painting. If they classes are too confusing or difficult, it can turn off students. As you know, I am no PRO when it comes to Decorative Painting but I am so willing to learn and these pieces say "PAINT ME". The pieces look fun to paint, somewhat not difficult (to a beginner) and appear offer an absolutely great entry way into the field of learning decorative art. I see shading, comma strokes, floating (oh no), S-strokes, liner work, and much much more. I have to give the Heritage Designers credit as I am definitely liking what I am seeing.

Anyway, these are just ramblings on my part. I am just ready to get started.

  1. HI David,

    One of the goals of this program is that we slow down a bit and give people some easier beginning pieces and the opportunity to repeat concepts until they are learned. We felt that perhaps the old manual moved too quickly. We have had a great reception to the new pieces. We are all very excited about what we have to do. Thanks for the positive post. Keep painting.
