Muddy Colors is dedicated to providing a free online resource for aspiring and professional artists alike. (muddycolors.com)

We are using this Patreon as an opportunity to ask our readers for support in our endeavors. We will use these funds to provide better content for our readers, maintain website expenses, and support aspiring artists through Muddy Colors programs and scholarships.

We will not be taking content away from non-contributors simply because they can not afford to support the blog. Instead, we ask that those who can contribute, help us bring the very best content to every artist that wants it, regardless of location or wealth.

In appreciation of your support, we are offering some rewards, including Professional Critiques and access to a Monthly Video Event, held just for Patrons. But more importantly, the funds we raise will help to provide an array of scholarships and free exhibition spaces for well-deserving students.

HOW IT WORKS:

Every month we will stream a BRAND NEW DEMO OR LECTURE from a highly esteemed artist. These Video Events are usually about 2 hours long, and will replay continuously for 48 hours at a previously announced time.

-$5 donors get access to the Video Broadcast as it happens.
-$10 donors get access to the Video Broadcast, plus a Downloadable copy of the Video afterwards.
-$30 donors get access to the Video Broadcast, a Downloadable copy of the Video afterwards, plus streaming access to all previous Videos.
-$100 donors get access to the Video Broadcast, a Downloadable copy of the Video afterwards, streaming access to all previous Videos, and a personalized Critique Session via Skype with one of the Muddy Colors Artists.


***Donating for a particular month only gets you access to that month's event/video. If you are a new subscriber, you do not receive access to events/videos that occurred prior to your donation (unless you are a streaming subscribers). We check for new Patrons daily. If you have donated, but are waiting to receive access to an existing video, please be patient. Access to pre-existing videos is usually granted within a few hours, but may take up to 24 hours. Patrons must provide us with a Google-Enabled email address to download videos.***
Rewards

This is a wonderful way of saying 'Thank You', and ensures we will continue to help aspiring artists by providing free educational content for years to come.
TIER 2 : The Student
$5 or more per month 35 patrons
Patrons at this level will receive access to our Patreon Feed and our Monthly Video Event. Video Events will be announced in advance, and will cover a variety of art related topics. Topics include live demonstrations, as well as interviews and lectures with industry professionals.

***Note to Patrons: These are scheduled events, which means subscribers at this tier need to watch them as they happen. Much like a concert, once the event has ended, it has ended. Most events are 2-3 hours long, and will replay continuously for 24 hours.***
TIER 3 : The Scholar
$10 or more per month 247 patrons
Patrons at this level will receive access to our Patreon Feed, our Monthly Video Event, any Supplemental Videos, and any other cool stuff we happen to come up with. Unlike the tier above, Patrons at this level will also receive a downloadable copy of the Monthly Video Event to own and watch again at their leisure.

In addition to all the rewards above, Patrons at this tier will receive a Personalized Critique of their own artwork from one of our contributors, every month. 

You will receive a professional critique of a current work of your choice, complete with a paint-over to help clarify our notes.

This tier is a wonderful opportunity for aspiring professionals looking to receive honest, and continual input on how to improve their work.

Because of the time-intensive nature of this reward, we are limiting this option to just 3 patrons.
