Threads is an artists community designed to help you make a living online from your art.
If you like the idea of an independent life as an artist on your own terms, watch this three minute video. I think it will be worth it for you 🙂
Teaching is be delivered by your’s truly as live streams and will cover two topics in-depth every month:
- one virtual workshop a month, covering an aspect of realist painting. It might be a single stream or delivered over a few sessions.
- one or more live webinars, just for Threads members, on an aspect of marketing yourself online.
The community component will consist of:
- Once a month virtual online meet-ups where you can get feedback on your web site and how you’re going about building your online business
- A private Facebook group where you can get feedback and support and make connections.
Threads is $19 a month. I’ve kept it very affordable because I want to spread this opportunity to as many people as I can, and because the bigger Threads gets, the more useful it will be for everyone.
You can cancel at any time and I’m happy to refund you if you find it’s not for you.
I’ve called this new program Threads because it represents the connections we make with each other, and the connections we need to make with people online in order to build something meaningful for ourselves and others.
But it also represents the threads that run through our individual lives. What drives us to draw and paint. And the importance of holding on to that thread and following it.
How will it help me?
If you’d like to begin to build your online presence so that you can start to make some income from your work or teaching (or both) online then Threads is for you.
I’ll be covering in depth everything you need to know to be able to make meaningful connections with people online, build an audience, and then build an online business.
- The tech you need to know to get everything set up and working right
- how to use social media to build an engaged audience, beyond the followers and likes
- How to set your blog up so that it comes up on Google
- how to build an email list from the ground up.
Monthly online panting workshops will also help you to develop your skills and improve your work.
and then there’s the community; Monthly live video calls with myself and other Threadies where you can get feedback on your work or your online presence.
And a private Facebook group just for you and your fellow Threads members, sharing and encouraging each other.
What people say about my learning materials
I’m committed to helping you achieve your artistic goals. Here’s a few comments from people currently on the Mastering Colour Course or who have learned with me in other ways:
Mastering Colour Course:
– Judy Warner
The structure, content, and step-by-step process of the course, informs and demonstrates to students what needs to be learnt and understood about colour in a practical hands-on way.
I have, and will continue, to highly recommend the Master Colouring Course by Paul Foxton to those I meet in the Art World. ”
– Christopher Heaphy
I also produce video tutorials on different aspects of painting and run a drawing practice membership program. Here are some comments from people who have used my videos or are on the drawing program:
“Thanks to Paul Foxton for his excellent videos explaining the Munsell system. One can never learn enough about color.”
– Kathleen Speranza
“I finally got to watch Paul Foxton’s flower painting video and it was so worth the wait. It’s a hands-on, practical, common sense approach to learning to paint and making something very beautiful at the same time. Loved it.”
– Amanda Williams
