Susan Jenkins Fine Artis creating Pastel Paintings, Painting Videos, Art Lessons
Currently, this is the only tier and it is for those "art appreciators" who wish to keep the free YouTube videos coming and help to improve the channel through your support. So, for the price of a cup of coffee, you can keep Monet Cafe' on the cutting edge for free content. I hope to add another tier soon offering more benefits to patreon subscribers. I am so grateful for your support!
About Susan Jenkins Fine Art
My YouTube Channel, Monet Cafe', was a dream of mine that started many years ago. Because I was limited financially early in my art career and went through a time of being a single mother, with three boys, I decided that if I became successful in my artistic goals I would "give back" to those who may have circumstances like mine. The Monet Cafe' YouTube channel now has nearly 20,000 subscribers from all over the world, and the Monet Cafe' Art Group on Facebook has over 8,000 members. I'm so blessed to experience the beauty of how such a diverse group of people can share their artistic passions in such a loving and giving way.
It's always my goal to bring FREE tutorials, but of course it is time consuming and the cost of video equipment and supplies can get expensive. I have been providing the free tutorials on YouTube for nearly 5 years, and I am so blessed that many of you are now sharing that you would like to support my efforts to continue this free service, and Patreon is a safe and easy way to do that.
My art instruction leans heavily toward the medium of soft pastels, as I have fallen in love with this medium; however, I often add mixed media to my creations and also love watercolor, gouache, acrylics and more.
What you can expect:
Free Tutorials on the Monet Cafe' YouTube Channel: I am starting to offer more BEGINNER lessons that have been highly requested. These videos will take you through the very basics of good composition, color theory, materials, and as always, affordable ways to create art on a budget.
For Patreon Subscribers: It is my goal to be able to bring some special "behind the scenes" tips and techniques to my subscribers here on Patreon. Your donations will hopefully, allow me the time to give some in depth answers to your questions that are often not covered in the YouTube videos. I may also add a level in the future for those who wish to have art critiques and suggestions on creating more beautiful paintings.
I am very interested in what YOU would like, since Monet Cafe' is a result of so many of your suggestions.
Keep in mind:
There is no long term commitment necessary here on Patreon! You can join for as long as you like or just for a while. I feel humbled and blessed to have experienced art through such an amazing artistic family from all over the world! Thank you in advance for your cherished support.
1. Get a wider range of pastels to do in depth product reviews
2. Take "the show on the road" so to speak and do some on location videos.
I wish I could hug each and every one of you! I can't express in words how you bless me <3
