Select a membership level
This tier is for pure supporters who enjoy my youtube videos and my art postings on social media. You will get access to occasional short video posts and other interesting information as well as posts about art and art topics. I thank you for your invaluable support.
You also get to join our community here at Patreon and join in the private discussions.
You are a watercolor artist who wishes to study with Zan and grow your art. As a thank you, you will receive everything listed above and:
- Reference photos to paint from
- Traceable base drawing (some times if the image is too complicated)
We are an interactive community sharing our work, communicating our needs and getting and giving friendly and useful feedback on our efforts. Whether you count yourself as a beginner, intermediate or an advanced artist, this is a welcoming place, a place for creative growth and positive support. I believe in art and I believe we all have the potential to achieve personal success in our art journey.
Every week, I post a new lesson. Most of the time, it is a video lesson with a full demonstration of a painting from start to finish. Other times, I may share a booklet or a pdf or a challenge or “how to” videos. You are always welcome to share your work in our private “community” area or to send me your finished work privately.
My goal is to make you paint better and enjoy the process. My method is to teach the fundamentals and challenge you to grow and explore.
Now here is a bit about me:
In 2016, I was honored as a master artist by the International Watercolor Society. I am the recipient of several art awards. I am also the founder and past president of Ontario Plein Air Society, a group of Ontario painters dedicated to painting the Canadian landscape from life. I am a professional artist and teacher. I teach watercolors classes at schools of art in Ontario.
A few times a year I have travel workshops to different locations in Canada and around the world. Check my website for more details.
If you are joining us for the first time, grab a chair, buy me a cup of coffee and let’s get started. Check out the tiers and the benefits on the right of the screen and choose what makes sense for you. Learning starts at the $5 per month pledge. You can start now, cancel anytime and rejoin when you are ready again. No long term commitments are required except at the collector tier. If you just want to support me without learning benefits, you can pledge $1 per month and get time laps videos and be part of the community with my thanks.
Whatever you choose, I hope you will join us! It’s not the same without you.
When we reach 100 patrons, I will revamp my camera and editing equipment. I will add a dedicated cam for the palette so you can see what I am doing there all the time. I will commit to an increase in videos and lessons.
All this takes time of course. Your patronage serves as a motivator for me to create and serve you more lessons more frequently
