Muddy Colors is dedicated to providing a free online resource for aspiring and professional artists alike. (www.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, support aspiring artists through Muddy Colors programs and scholarships, and ensure Muddy Colors continues to exist for a long time!

Muddy Colors has been posting free educational art content daily for more than 8 years now! We will not be taking any of that 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.

HOW IT WORKS:

Every month we will produce a BRAND NEW DEMO or LECTURE from a highly esteemed artist.

These Video are usually about 2 hours long, and are available as Downloads, or limited-time Broadcasts. Downloads are yours to keep. Broadcasts will replay continuously for a minimum of 7 days at a scheduled time, and may be watched as many times as you like during that duration.

-$5 donors get access to the Video Broadcast.
-$10 donors get access to the Video Broadcast, plus a Downloadable Copy of that month's Video.
-$30 donors get access to the Video Broadcast, a Downloadable Copy of that month's Video, plus Unlimited Streaming Access to all previous Videos.
-$100 donors get access to the Video Broadcast, a Downloadable Copy of that month's Video, Unlimited Streaming Access to all previous Videos, and a 1 hour personalized Critique Session via Google Hangouts 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 Access' subscriber). 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.***
Tiers
TIER 1 : The Patron
$1 or more per month

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. Donate any amount you want and receive access to our Patreon Feed.

TIER 2 : The Student
$5 or more per month

Patrons at this level will receive access to our Patreon Feed and our Monthly Video Broadcast. Video Broadcasts 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 broadcasts are limited-time, streaming videos, which means subscribers at this tier need to watch them the month they are rewarded. Most events are 1-3 hours long, and will replay continuously for 7 days. Patrons may watch the broadcast as many times as that want in that timespan, but once the broadcast expires, it is over. Patrons at this level do not receive access to previous month's broadcasts.***

TIER 3 : The Scholar
$10 or more per month

Patrons at this level will receive access to our Patreon Feed, our Monthly Video Broadcast, 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 to own and watch again at their leisure. 

TIER 4 : The Librarian
$30 or more per month

Patrons at this level will receive access to our Patreon Feed, our Monthly Video Broadcast, any Supplemental Videos, a Downloadable Copy of the Monthly Video, and will also receive Unlimited Streaming Access to ALL of our previous Monthly Videos. 

TIER 5 : The Apprentice
$100 or more per month (sold out!)

In addition to all the rewards above, Patrons at this tier will receive a 1 Hour Personalized Critique of their own artwork from one of our contributors, every month. 

You will receive a live, professional critique (via Google Hangouts) 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 4 patrons.

Goals
