In this program you will have an experience similar to a remote college learning environment. There is a dedicated website which contains the weekly learning content, references, and homework suggestions. Each week, Yong will discuss the important details of the techniques and processes of painting with demonstrations to answer all your questions. The weekly interactive classes will lead you through learning and practicing at your own pace, so you will experience productive and positive progress throughout the program. Through this learning program, you will gain confidence with the oil painting medium and will achieve a deeper understanding of techniques and processes, readying you to take on more painting challenges.
