What is ArtistsNetwork.tv?
ArtistsNetwork.tv was launched in 2008 to provide online instructional videos from leading contemporary artists. The videos are streamed to ArtistsNetwork.tv members so that they can be viewed 24/7 from any computer with a high-speed internet connection without requiring software downloads. You can choose to subscribe to any of our individual workshops for a 6-month period, or you can subscribe to all art workshop videos in a given medium or subject, or you can subscribe to all ArtistsNetwork.tv video workshops for a full 6-months or 12-months. For more information on ordering options, please mouse over the "Buy Workshops" link in the top navigation bar & select the type of ordering option you'd like. ArtistsNetwork.tv is operated by F+W Media, Inc. -- publishers of The Artist's Magazine, Watercolor Artist, The Pastel Journal, North Light Books, ArtistsNetwork.com and WetCanvas.com Do I need to have a high-speed internet connection to use ArtistsNetwork.tv?
Where can I view a free preview of each workshop?
Yes. In order to have a satisfactory viewing experience with the 40+ minute video workshops offered at ArtistsNetwork.tv you'll need to have a high-speed internet connection: typically Cable, high-speed DSL or satellite dish.
Most end user access problems are due to connectivity issues on the user side. Even on a high-speed connection, a CPU or RAM resource issue on the client system can cause issues or slowdowns. We have found that one thing a user might try is to clear their browser cache, check their system resources, and/or reboot if need be.
We also often direct people to http://www.speakeasy.net/speedtest/
. This site performs a speed test of the user system, and sometimes reveals a connectivity issue (for example, if a shared cable line becomes bogged down, etc).
To view a five minute (sometimes longer) preview of each video workshop, simply click on the "Preview Video" button below any of the workshop listings when browsing by Medium or Subject, or in your search results as you browse around the site. You can also access the video preview from the any of the workshop details pages -- available via the "Learn More" buttons below the art workshop listings. What are the options available for purchasing and viewing a video workshop?
There are several ways to view your video workshop(s), all of which offer from 6 to 12 months of unlimited viewing! Is there a limit on how many times I can view a workshop?
