Artyfactory is an excellent resource for anyone who wants to learn about the visual arts. You can teach yourself how to draw, paint and design by following the illustrated step by step tutorials and the many free Art and Design Lessons. Also, there is a growing section on Art Appreciation which can be used to expand the context of many of the lessons.
Artyfactory is particularly useful to those involved in art education: art teachers, art students, homeschoolers and parents, as well as artists of any age or ability who are keen to expand their knowledge and understanding of art and design.
Artyfactory places great importance on teaching art visually as opposed to verbally in the belief that artists teach themselves visually first and verbally second. This is why the visuals for each of the lessons are designed before the addition of any text. This ensures that they communicate the essence of the lesson in images alone.
