What do Vincent Van Gogh, Frida Kahlo, and I have in common? We're all self taught artists. I stumbled around in the dark as I started my artistic journey... I didn't know what paints to buy, how to varnish my work, or the differences between painting mediums. The mission of the Self Taught Artist podcast is to help artists (and aspiring artists) learn and fully discover the joy of making art. We will cover everything from the basics of painting, to how to sell your work, and beyond.

A sense of belonging

One of my goals in life is to listen to a podcast, and I felt that I can relate to this morning, because I am also a self taught artist. I’m proud to say that this is my very first podcast that I’ve listen to and I can’t wait for the next episode, while listening to the previous episode, app and posted.
