Here's an amazing variety of online courses and tutorials available from art educator/artist/illustrator Matt Fussell. Paid subscription is available to have access to all tutorials and courses. Reference photos and e-guides available for download with professionally produced video instruction. There is an endless variety of media explored: charcoal, pastel, acrylic, oil, watercolor, colored pencil, as well as digital illustration! I love this site.
I must admit, I'm a little addicted to Bluprint (formerly Craftsy) classes. So many classes, so little time! Drawing, watercolor, acrylic, oil, pen and ink, Illustrating Children's Books! You name it, they probably have it, and that's just the drawing and painting classes. Other subjects of interest include photography, sewing, quilting, and cooking.
Once you've learned how to draw, or if you already know how to draw, but are interested in learning how to create digital art in programs like Adobe Illustrator or Photoshop, here is a treasure trove of excellent step-by-step tutorials by Jason Secrest. I still can't believe these are free! The videos are very professional and easy to understand!
