What the AC Art Academy can offer

As an artist myself who still paints professionally, I have gained years of experience in the fine art world. This art academy will offer tutorial videos that specialise in taking your realism to the next level. You will find comprehensive, real time tutorials that cover all aspects of painting realism in airbrush and traditional brush work, and a combination of both.

Everything is stored in one place so you don't have to download large files or have subscriptions to pay each month for access. There are a number of training facilities out there for artists, but I quickly realised years ago that many of them charge extortionate amounts that simply out price most working artists or hobbyists looking to develop their skill set. This is something I think is fundamentally wrong, knowledge is valuable, but also worthless if not shared. I therefore want to keep my training accessible for everyone.

I also offer a tailored programme for 1:1 zoom lessons and group lessons. This is a unique and invaluable way to learn in a relaxed environment at your own pace. This is an incredible way to take your art to the next level.

In the art academy, you will find new tutorials and courses being added frequently. Over the coming months, there are a number of new projects being worked on:


Traditional brush work with acrylic paints (photo-realism) that incorporates small elements of airbrush work that truly transcend a painting to a new level

Full coaching programme for artists looking to develop their business into a profitable source of income
