Did you know?

Art tip | free art videos

Many of you probably get email from art sites if you’ve ever ordered any supplies online..  All of them have some sort of great deal almost every week that you wouldn’t know about if you aren’t on their mailing lists.  But did you know many of their sites also have video demonstrations you can watch for free?  What better way for artists ordering online to learn about new products and how to use them? 

Dick Blick Art Supplies has a YouTube playlist with lots of short tutorial videos about art supplies and how to use them.  Who knew?!?  Everything from manufacturers providing background and demos about their products to lesson plans and more.   You can find the playlist at

Cheap Joe’s Art Stuff offers videos they call “tiny workshops” on a variety of art subjects and products.  The videos range from 2-3 minutes to 10 minutes.  Search under their "artist resources" tab.  You will find both Artist Tips and Lessons  and Artist Instructional Videos

Jerry’s Artarama has 2000+ free art lessons plus product demos.  Search under their “learning/education” tab. 

A quick search of the internet will reward you with an art demonstration or tutorial on any topic or product out there and you can watch them from the comfort of your own home.  How wonderful is that!?
