Why Study Online at Vitruvian Studio?

A Complete Experience

Ever bought a how-to-draw book or instructional DVD and been surprised by how much is missing? They usually start well, but after Steps 1 and 2, they’ll suddenly skip to Step 22. What happened?

The reality is that documenting the whole process of drawing and painting is a huge project that is simply beyond the scope of most books and videos.

That’s why we prefer the online course format. A course isn’t limited by length, so we’re able to include everything –  truly from start to finish.

Pay Once. Learn Forever.

When you buy something, we believe you should be allowed to keep it. That’s why we don’t use a subscription model for course access. Each course fee is a one-time-only payment, and your access will never expire. That means you can watch, re-watch, and watch again any video from any course you're enrolled in. Once a Vitruvian student, always a Vitruvian student.

Great for Beginners

While some subjects are more challenging than others, all our courses assume no prior experience from students. All concepts, even the most rudimentary, are thoroughly explained. Still need help? Ask questions on any lesson page, or contact the instructor privately.

Show & Tell

Too frequently, art instruction will focus on the why’s of drawing and painting, but not enough on the how’s – or vice versa. But both types of instruction are necessary for students to learn effectively. Thats why we take a two-pronged approach to instruction at Vitruvian Studio: explain and demonstrate. Students emerge from our courses not just with a better grasp of what to do, but also an understanding of why they’re doing it.

What our Students Say...

Great course. Great instruction. I have tried several online art classes. None compare to this one, and I hope to take additional courses from Vitruvian in the future. David does not rush through his presentations and does not leave out the details, requiring the students to guess how to fill in the blanks like many other online courses do. I would recommend this course to anyone.

I have just completed Drawing Basics with David Jamieson. It is a very well made online course both in terms of its content and how it is presented. David's teaching is clear, detailed and logical, and I have learned a lot from it. I highly recommend this to anyone who are interested in learning the basics of drawing. I hope more online courses will be made available such as in painting still life. Thank you David for sharing your knowledge!

Helle, Copenhagen, DENMARK

I want you to know that I have tried other online courses and you are the best one out there. Your method of teaching is just great. I have watched the first two lessons completely at least 6 times, and each time I pick something up. Usually it is just something so small it can be overlooked easily. My work has gotten better because of it and for that I truly thank you.
