Renaissance Creative Arts's Art Instruction Video/Workbook & Online Academy Lessons :
"Painting the Portrait" is a phenomenal help to the novice or experienced artist. Jessica blends both precise steps, and artistic expertise to guide the student through essential techniques for improved paintings!!! Thank you Jessica!!! Five out of five stars!!! Can’t wait for more!!! You are truly gifted, and I love the handout reference!!!—Paint on!
I just purchased "Painting The Still Life With Jessica Henry". Jessica has been so generous by offering her expertise on YouTube and I take full advantage of those. She is so talented both as an artist and as a teacher. I have tried many things she has shared and am so encouraged by the information she shares and by the way she teaches. She makes it seem possible so I try. This is so unlike other art teachers who go on and on about how hard it is and how many years it will take to enjoy any success. Jessica is a wonderful teacher and a very generous person. I am so grateful for her and the new offerings from her and her partner Daniel. Take advantage of any and all of their offerings. You will be so glad you did.
I have purchased both the "From Tuscany To Tipperary!" and "Painting The Portrait" programs and find the content to be outstanding. The clarity of Jessica's teaching is amazing. The workbooks are informative and very useful. I have printed several pages of the workbooks for reference purposes. I have the section of the workbook from the portrait program regarding the measurement of the face taped to my drawing table and I refer to it often. I HIGHLY recommend both programs and eagerly await more in the future!
#25 and climbing! You are easily one of the best artists / instructors I have ever seen.
You explain everything so clearly and your artwork is awe-inspiring. Once more people
find out about you and the great work you are doing with Daniel Hill Riedel,
there will be no stopping you! Congratulations!
What Some Of Our Renaissance Academy Students Are Saying:
I encourage anyone who is thinking about joining the Renaissance Academy of Fine Arts…do it!
I couldn't sign up fast enough for this opportunity! I signed up for the whole package—first year 1-time payment—because it is definitely the most cost effective. I purchased two of Renaissance Creative Arts previous lessons and I am still learning from them! Knowing the quality of those lessons, I knew the investment in the Renaissance Academy of Fine Arts was absolutely worth it! I am excited and can't wait to get started!
Jessica Henry and Daniel Hill Riedel are so supportive and encouraging. They have worked hard to make this academy a reality. To be a part of it right from the start is really exciting! And, I am looking forward to learning from the other group members, seeing their works and sharing with them in our private Facebook page.
Lesson One! Wow! What a great lesson! I really liked the negative space concept and I can tell right away I'm going to have to practice it a lot! This was so much fun. I'm going to do a few of these over several more times.
Thanks Jessica for the wonderful lesson! I really learned a LOT! I watched the video several times. So, in that regard, it doesn't matter if it's live or not. I have practiced drawing using the techniques from the lesson. Looking forward to the next one! I really appreciate how you keep giving us more materials and instruction. You are a wonderful instructor!
I have spent many hours watching Jessica Henry on YouTube and have really enjoyed it—have learned so much. Her techniques are awesome and I am learning so much in the Renaissance Academy of Fine Arts. Thanks Jessica!
Always a learning experience watching Jessica Henry paint—very informative and inspiring. I have great respect for her dedication and sincerity in helping others to improve…thank you, thank you, thank you!
I am one of Jessica Henry’s students—this is best training I have ever had in the Renaissance Academy of Fine Arts!
I started off as an oil painter and moved to digital art painting and now I'm so motivated to go back to what I've always loved to do—paint classically! It's been a long time so it's like I will be learning everything all over…I'm super excited!
It never dawned on me that NONE of my previous art teachers ever taught me what Jessica did last week—looking around the object not at it—GENIUS—Still working on making it a natural instinct.
Looking forward to my homework!
I'm so happy to be apart of the Renaissance Academy of Fine Arts. I learned so much in just the first lesson. I'm so looking forward to our journey together.
I’m doing this for inspiration! The Renaissance Academy of Fine Arts means everything to me.
Thank you so very much for the gift you are giving to me, and so many others who love art. I have such a desire to create beautiful art and for the past 5 years I have been going at it alone, so I am beyond thrilled with this opportunity!
I just watched the first lesson in full...I already feel like I have learned some valuable tools to see things more clearly. Wonderful and informative first lesson! This is challenging but the instruction is clear and precise. All constructive criticism is appreciated. I learned a lot on this one!
Thank you Jessica for the wonderful instruction.
Congratulations! Your followers know how much time, effort, and love you put into your work. It is pretty obvious. Your love for what you do, really shines when you are painting...the way you explain a brush stroke, the reason for choosing certain colors (not just the correct reason, but why YOU choose a certain color, the light shining on a face, the expression on her face, what the feeling could be for this expression, etc.) and your explanation for why you choose this color. There is so much more that I feel I have learned from watching your videos and the few times we’ve talked. I know the others that follow you feel the same.
The lessons that Jessica Henry instills in her students are of such value that it cannot be quantified! They are transforming in their ability to elevate the artist to the next level.
I am really enjoying Jessica's "Painting The Portrait" video and workbook program. They are so worth the cost! I was happy to be able to print the workbook in color! They are fantastic! I am so excited about painting again, Jess your videos are wonderful. I can watch them on my desktop and my tablet. You both did a great job!
