How Is this Class Presented?


Student Support: Streaming video, text lessons, forum discussions, and individual student critiques.


  • This online class is presented with 7 hours of step by step video. Videos are broken down into an average of 20 minute segments.
  • The student can watch teacher Sue Pruett paint through each step of the composition and view many close up shots showing all the details.
  • Students have the best  close up seat in the house as they watch right over the teachers shoulder and see just how the brush is held and how colors are applied and blended.
  • Included in the class materials are written text lessons to support the videos, line drawing and supply lists making painting easier than ever.
  • Classroom forums offer students the opportunity of uploading their painting (photographs)to receive teacher critique and feedback along the way. This feature is unlimited.
  • And don't forget, you have Unlimited class access 24/7 - your classes with us never expire!


If home decor is one of your interests, this 18"x 36", or 24"x36"  gallery canvas will make a lovely statement in any room and of  course you can always reduce the line drawing and paint it at a smaller size too.

    Absolutely outstanding class

    Posted by Margo M. on 2nd Dec 2015

    This is such an outstanding class! It is a big painting, but everything is shown in great detail! A lot of close-ups on the video, so many hours of clear explanations, excellent instructions. Love the new techniques: the cement texture, the bricks, the walls effect, flowers... everything. If you take this class, you are going to love it!!! Thank you so much for everything you do, Sue! You are my most favorite teacher! Please make more still life classes!!! :)
