Artyfactory's free art lessons share the knowledge, understanding and experience of art and design to encourage you to develop your own artistic voice.

In each lesson we lead you through an illustrated step by step development of the artwork from its initial stages to the finished example.
Art appreciation is the knowledge and understanding of the universal and timeless qualities that identify all great art. The more you appreciate and understand the art of different eras, movements, styles and techniques, the better you can develop, evaluate and improve your own artwork.
Our design lessons explore the basic elements of design such as imagery, color, pattern, composition, layout and typography and how to evaluate their effectiveness in the creative process.
