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 your time:
Learn and Grow
Teaching is delivered as live streams and covers two topics in-depth every month:
- one virtual workshop a month, designed to help you make real progress with your work.
- one live webinar, just for Threads members, giving you detailed information on how to build an audience and market yourself online.
All streams are recorded and available for you to watch any time, for the duration of your membership. You can also download and save all of the available recordings.
The really special part of Threads is the community, where you can get feedback on your ideas, share successes and connect with other people on the same journey.
- Once a month we have virtual online meet-ups where you can get live feedback from me and other group members on your web site, your work and your thoughts
- A private Facebook group supplies the venue for us to connect regularly and for you to stay in touch with everything that’s happening in the Threads community.
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 audience 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 serious about teaching, online and off, and 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
