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.

Kanopy with a K

My partner & I have had Kanopy accounts for about a year. The accounts were first activated at our municipal library in Melbourne, Australia. Kanopy is a welcome exception to the plethora of (primarily US owned & operated) video streaming platforms, that offer existing & commissioned film media to paying subscribers only. That is, Kanopy functions much like the extension to national television networks, who stream free media on viewer demand. The selection of media on Kanopy is reasonably broad, with perhaps an emphasis toward (copyright inexpensive) early 20th century Hollywood, & little known German film. The quality to Kanopy is very mixed. I would like to see language translation on non-English speaking films improved; film titles need to be universally made available under image advertising, & it is high time Kanopy separated short form film from long form film, rather than plonk everything together in a category “lump”.

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.
