Well, Newbie Beachkid, welcome to the Paintbasket family.  It's a warm, friendly place to learn.  Nolan and Dennis are master artists who make it fun to learn. 

All of us who have taken the Let's Draw course can attest that it makes a world of difference in our ability to draw.  It's a great place to start. 

Our Forum gives you a fun place to hang out, show your work, get help to make it better.

Look forward to seeing your progress.  Have fun!!

Hi there, Beachkid. Welcome to a wonderful place of learning.  I, too, was a total 'newbie', and now, I find so much pleasure in watercolors, drawing, pastels and acrylics!  Had no idea that I was capable until Dennis and Nolan showed me how in such an instructive, and so fun, manner.  You'll really enjoy the atmosphere and friendship here.
