What is ArtMaker?
ArtMaker is a virtual art campus and media channel, currently a working prototype with limited lessons and resources. But a journey of One Thousand Steps begins with one small step. We aim to make ArtMaker the world’s leading online art education resource!
We hope you enjoy our first course of Still Life Drawing lessons. Keep checking in, as we are developing SO MUCH more!
Who is Producing ArtMaker?
ArtMaker is the brainchild of Lara van der Wall and Charles Mouyat. With many years’ experience in drawing, painting, graphic design, writing, photography, music production, video production, and interactive design, ArtMaker is the natural expression of their skill and love of art and education.
We had a vision to create a welcoming and supportive online art studio, where artistic people can connect, learn, improve and share their art while making friends”. Lara and Charles are thrilled to be receiving such a great response from interested art makers from all around the globe. The site is constantly being improved. Keep in touch! Tell us what YOU want!
