About

More Information
I'm Mike Mahon, and I’ve been a professional award-winning artist for about 50 years. I was a featured artist in the book published by International Artist Magazine, "How Did They Paint That? 100 Ways to Paint People and Figures". During the last 20 years I’ve taught scores of landscape and portrait painting workshops and have hundreds of students. 

So what is Patreon?
It's a platform where you will receive valuable rewards on a monthly basis for supporting a favorite artist directly, and learning from the artist's experience.  I will provide quality content that is simple to use, accessible on a regular time schedule, and very affordable.

REWARDS
For artists, I will be sharing everything I have learned about being a better artist. Mastering the skills I demonstrate will allow you to paint not only with great control but with authentic spontaneity. You will have exclusive access to one-on-one teaching opportunities.

To rapidly improve your painting skills, there is nothing more important than regular and immediate feedback on your work! Patreon will help me give you a consistent teaching format based on your unique needs as an artist.

My Patreon channel will provide you ongoing guidance and inspiration in a convenient and economical manner.

In my fine art career I have dealt with many of the same frustrations my students have encountered. Based on my experience as a commercial artist and what I have learned from my professional training, and taking workshops myself, I developed an approach to painting that overcame these frustrations and revolutionized my work. If you are looking for more confidence in your work, you will benefit from mastering the Seven Aesthetic Principles of Art as well as my unique Painting Procedure. I greatly enjoy teaching and helping my students retain these concepts.

If you are an art collector/appreciator, you will receive exclusive significant discounts on my finished paintings and prints. You will have unique opportunities to influence my work, exclusive insights about my art making process, and see behind the scenes.

More great things about Patreon:
• I regularly teach six or more three-day painting workshops each year, charging $1000 per day to organizations, or $400 to $500 per student. The one-on-one instruction, group dynamics, intense learning atmosphere, and 'getting-away-from-it-all-to-exotic-locations' makes these workshops well worth the money. However, it is difficult to preserve the new information and intensity of a workshop. For a small fee your Patreon membership is ideal to build on and maintain any workshop experience you have, whether your workshop was with me or with someone else.

• Whether you decide to use the Patreon platform as a workshop follow-up or as a primary learning experience, you will have access to much of what I teach in my workshops, for a fraction of the cost! You'll have access to: video tutorials, painting demonstrations, art lectures, paint-alongs, reference photos, personalized art coaching, and much more.

  For Level One (about the cost of a Latte) or Level Two, (about the cost of coffee plus a piece of pie) you can take action today to begin building your art knowledge and skill.

It's Easy to Join

Just choose the Level you like, Click the "Join" Button and follow the instructions.

Here's how  PATREON WORKS:
1. When you join one of my levels, you will have immediate access to valuable previously posted content and then monthly content according to the level you join.
2. You will be charged the day you join and then on the first day of every calendar month for the reward level you have subscribed to. No matter when you join, you will have immediate access to all kinds of content so there's no need to wait until the first of the month.
3. You will receive your rewards, according to their description on the reward level you have chosen, as they are posted once or twice each month. (For example, if your reward is a consultation with Mike, your appointment will be scheduled during the first week of each month. If it is a digital or tangible item, it will be sent to you during the first and second week.
4. You can cancel or change levels up or down at any time.

* Youtube: You can see abbreviated videos of my work on Youtube at https://www.youtube.com/c/MikeMahonFineArtist1 and a comprehensive description, including testimonials, on my website at https//www.mmahon.com
I post short clips and speed videos on Youtube, but only on Patreon will you get complete, virtually unedited video tutorials, demonstrations, and other presentations of my newest work.

If you haven't already, please join one of my Rewards Levels and try it out!
