I’ve found this to be very nice training and the FREE tutorials are great and give insights on many different topics related to art (Color Mixing Secrets, How to Sell on Fine Art America, How to clean an Oil Painting, Drawing Tips for Painters and more).
Paint Basket operates 2 sites, the Paint Basket Online Art Lessons (a membership site) and the Paint Basket Art Classes (where you can purchase individual classes). The member Forum and Facebook Group is a nice extra.
Check out the FREE tutorials.
