Welcome to the video and art tutorial section of the Renaissance Life site. We are proud to offer video demonstrations, talks and time-lapse videos free of charge. Our goal is to help promote sound and informed visual art practices by making quality learning resources available to the public. We will be producing many new video tutorials in the coming months. Please let us know if there is a specific subject you would like to see painted, drawn or discussed.

These videos are being offered free of charge that they might be a learning tool for you, the viewer. If you utilize resources on this page, please take a moment to share a link over your social media outlets to this website video page to help us spread the word so others can benefit as well! Lastly, your generosity permits more resources to become available. If you would like to donate to help us in creating more videos, you can do so on this site (all donations are tax deductible). 

Peace to You and Happy Painting!
