I added a new art section to the list tonight. It includes drawing, painting, digital painting, photography and art history. It’s a fairly comprehensive list, but I feel like there’s always room for improvement, so feel free to send me suggestions.
The ones I added today include:
Drawing / Digital Art
drawspace - Easily one of the most comprehensive and most recommended drawing sites on the web. Teaches paper and pen drawing from the basics to advanced level.
Ctrl + Paint - Teaches a wide variety of digital art. Over 200 videos covering pencil skills to drawing with a stylus to photoshop. They also offer premium content, but they have more than enough free lessons to keep you occupied.
Enliighten - Awesome tutorials on how to draw and create pictures with photoshop
ArtGraphica - Another site that teaches the basics of drawing, painting, oil painting, water color, etc. They also have some free art books that they created on the right hand side. It is not the easiest site to navigate, but I thought the content was valuable
Lynda – This is an affiliate link, but I really do support their website. It is an excellent place to learn how to use photoshop and illustrator if you are willing to pay for it. I have used Lynda before and their tutorials are honestly top notch and very informative.
Cambridge in Colour - A great resource in helping you learn how to use your camera. Tutorials teach you how to use your camera, basic photography concepts, editing and post-processing and more
The Bastards Book of Photography – “The Bastards Book of Photography is a visual guide for learning your camera’s manual controls in order to make beautiful photographs. No flash or other fancy equipment required.”
Exposure Guide - This is a good website for photography beginners. The Photography Basics section gives you a basic primer on how to use your camera and their blog gives new tips and tricks every once in a while
Smarthistory - Smarthistory is a site created by the Khan Academy to help teach Art History. Includes hundreds of videos from many art historians describing different eras, artists, and works of art
Google Art Project - This resource from Google allows you to flip through the collections of many art museums around the world and save your favorites. It is constantly updated with new collections from worldwide museums to keep you coming back
Thanks for all the support! I swear I will get through looking at all the website suggestions.
