Why join a live class rather than just watching a video?

Because a live class is an interactive learning experience, you’re encouraged to ask questions and your questions will be answered immediately. A demonstration of each small step in the painting and drawing process is followed by class member’s completing the step as they paint along with Yong. The class gives ample time to digest and carry out each step.

The live classes help you to learn how to break down big painting challenges into small, manageable steps, and as a result, you have more enjoyment and relaxation while painting and drawing.

Member-only Live Demos

As our community grows to be more diverse, we are planning member-only live demonstrations each month to complement to our weekly Friday live classes.
While our Friday live learning moments on Zoom designed for more relaxing, watercolor lessons, the live demonstrations will cover these categories:

  • Portrait painting in watercolor
  • Portrait drawing
  • Portrait painting in oil
  • Landscape painting in oil or acrylic

Some of these live demonstrations will be planned on morning while some on evening to provide convenience to our global members. Each month, the references and links will be updated to the page “Member-only Live Demos” which all members will have access to. These events are free to all members. If you are not yet a member, you can join us now.
