The 6 Week Course

The World’s Finest Art Training

"I started following Bill Inman 6-7 months ago. In that time, I've completed his basics course and then joined the art community here. I get lots of great support, valuable critiques, and a good amount of advice on things I can do to make better art. My background was heavily pencil and pen/ink. I was struggling to learn colors and such and had initially begun with watercolor. BUT Bill makes color mixing so simple and straightforward with oils, I switched and am making much faster progress now. I cannot recommend trying Bill's coursework and classes enough. With those, you just have to join the art community here as well and interact with other artists. Love it!"

"I have learned to look at paintings differently now and enjoy critiquing along with you. I challenge myself to see tangents and other shapes that distract the viewer. This opportunity is just awesome. Thank you!!!!"

"I am loving the 6 week training course. As a relatively new painter, I have many voids in my knowledge. Bill's course starts at the beginning and works his way to more advanced topics filling all those little voids as he goes. I'm not saying that I'll know it all when I finish the course, but I can say that I will know a lot more. Thanks to Bill for taking the time to tape this information."

"Bill, I’ve watched your last video at least 3 times – each time I learn new things that I previously didn’t catch! There is so much content – It is the best painting video ever and your manner as a teacher is just superb!"

“I bought the 6-week course a few months ago, and I love it. I tend to paint with much more realism than Bill, but the principles he teaches about color and brushwork have really helped my painting. I review many of the videos in the course before I start almost every painting. They help me decide where to focus my realism vs what I can leave in a more painterly style. Worth every penny to me. Thanks, Bill.”

"Bill, the course content is a fantastic core to get started with! Your critiques, to me, are hands down worth every penny of the tuition alone. Bill is too nice a guy to self-promote, but you won't find a course of this caliber out there anywhere for this price!"

Some Common Questions (and Answers)

Will my access ever expire?

Absolutely not! You can login and enjoy it as many times as you want, whenever you want.

I am an eternal student myself – I love to learn from other artists. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve purchased training of one type or another, gotten busy with life, and then come back to watch it months later only to see that it’s expired already. That’s a horrible feeling, and one I’ve made sure our members will never experience with us!

I don't use oil paint. Will this still be useful for me?

Most of our members prefer oil paint, but we have quite a few acrylic artists and even some water color enthusiasts, all of whom would happily give you raving reviews about their results. It's hard to say confidently that this works for every medium or artist though, because that comes down to your painting and learning style more than anything else.

If it doesn't work well for you and your preferred painting medium just let us know within 30 days and we'll be sure you get a full refund. No reason to pay for something that isn't helpful.

How long did this course take to create?

Over 30 Years!

There’s a story about James McNeil Whistler who was commissioned to create a painting many years ago. He walked into his studio and walked out again 15 minutes later with the finished masterpiece.

“Did you just now paint that?”

“Yes.”

“There’s no way I’m going to pay that much money for something that only took you 15 minutes!” said the man angrily.”

The artist calmly replied, “You’re not. You’re paying for the years of hard work it took to make this painting possible.”

But all stories aside, Bill took time off from painting and spent a solid 6 months working on this course full time. Plus, the training continues to grow and improve year over year.

Will this instantly make me a professional artist?

Probably not.

Actually, it's a pretty safe guarantee that this training by itself will not make you a professional artist anytime soon. Professional artists spend thousands of hours in front of their easel, reading books, attending workshops, and using training resources like this one. Nothing can ever replace good old fashioned hard work and time in the studio.

However, this training is packed full of helpful hints, techniques, and tips that will shave time off your journey to becoming a professional artist, and make the trip more enjoyable!

Why should I learn from Bill Inman?

He's provided for his family as a professional artist for over 30 years, holds an MFA in studio painting, has had years of classical training from world-class instructors, has been featured in multiple magazines including Southwest Art Magazine, was winner of the Congressional Art Award, has been a teacher to over 35,000 artists, and his art training YouTube channel has nearly 2 MILLION views.

In short, he's a really stink'in good artist and is one of the best teachers in the field today.
