Despite being via video call, online tuition has the same objective as face-to-face classes, where you have the tutor by your side. Depending on their experience with painting, your tutor might ask you to show them some drawings or canvases that you’ve done, in order to get to know your level and style. The tutor will be able to explain the most common techniques and materials used, such as watercolour or oil painting.
