Anna Wakitsch

is creating Paintings & Art Tutorials
Welcome to my first month on Patreon! I'd love for you to join me as I share my process in depth with my supporters and students.

I'm a visual artist, in both traditional and digital media, and I use my classical art training in innovative ways, such as my ongoing series of paintings on the inside of hemispheres. 



I've also been teaching oil painting and figure drawing for over a decade, including at the New York Academy of Art, The Ryder StudioVitruvian Fine Art Studio, and Altos de Chavón School of Design (affiliated with Parsons).


4 stages of a portrait: drawing, color study, underpainting, form painting

I love teaching, and I wanted to find a sustainable way to continue to teach more organically, directly from my studio, while I focus intensely on creating my current body of work. 

With your support as my patron on Patreon, whether you are a fellow artist, art-lover, student, or collector, I can share all aspects of the art-making process with you and give context to my teaching through what I'm working on in my own artistic practice.  I'll also be offering a limited number of personal critiques and the opportunity to collect original sketches and studies.

I'll be posting behind-the-scenes updates and creating in-depth videos, tutorials, and studio vlogs, including such topics as:

  • How I develop and research the ideas and concepts behind my work
  • Demonstrating painting and drawing techniques 
  • Color mixing in oils and acrylics 
  • Experimenting with materials 
  • Developing revisions and corrections (learning to self-critique!) 
  • How to plan a complex project 
  • Drawing and painting the portrait, figure, interior, still life, costume 
  • How I integrate digital and traditional media 
  • Working from life, from maquettes and models, from photos  

HOW PATREON WORKS:

Patreon is set up to be a monthly subscription, and I will be posting new content regularly.  The platform is structured with different "tiers" or levels of support, each with corresponding benefits depending on how much you wish to contribute.  

You can create an account for free, and then if you choose to become my patron, the initial contribution is right away so you'll have immediate access to what I've already posted in your chosen tier. Subsequent payments will be scheduled once per month on the 1st, but you can adjust or discontinue your contribution at any time.  

You can choose one of the five tiers in a separate section on this page, but here is a summary:
  • Bronze ($5/month) includes access to private posts with behind-the-scenes updates & works in progress
  • Silver ($10/month) adds: unabridged (full-length), in-depth videos of my art-making process
  • Gold ($25/month) adds: a thorough discussion of your art questions in a special extended monthly Q&A
  • Platinum ($100/month) adds to all of the above:
    • your choice of either:
      • a monthly personal critique for detailed feedback on your artwork (for artists and students)
      • OR one original small sketch or study per month (for collectors)
  • Diamond ($150/month)
    • All of the above, if you wish to have both a personal critique and a small sketch/study per month (for artists who are also collectors!)
