From the highly recommended shelves of the Video store.

How I miss my video store. I used to walk past the mega, blockbuster movie section.. straight to the cult/highly recommended movies and documentaries shelves. Since my video store has closed down,I have been mourning the loss of rummaging through for a classic. And now Kanopy has brought back the thoughtful back. Even better because it’s online and can provide so much more than could be housed in a physical space... and it’s FREE!! I’m in heaven. Thank you Kanopy and the great Australian mind that saw the need and acted on it.

This is the best course on introductory painting that I have seen. The presenter has given significant thought to the teaching painting and leads students in a easy to understand, structured process. He inspires confidence in the student and he encourages the student to produce a range of interesting and compelling artworks. His gentle manner is very reassuring for first-time artists and I completed may paintings based on these episodes. It is also very refreshing to hear the presenter explain why he performs the various steps in a painting. This is a rare and valuable resource.

Great content and it makes you read books!

“Thoughtful entertainment” as it says which is so true in terms of the quality of the content of this app. It’s a great alternative to Netflix not just because it’s free, its free from American pop-culture trash. Oh and you will need a participating library membership which is also great and makes you go to the library and hopefully get some books :)
