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 ArtistsNetwork.tv video workshops monthly or for 12-months.
For more information on ordering options, please click on the SUBSCRIPTION OPTIONS link in the top navigation bar & select the type of ordering option you'd like or the button on the page of the workshop 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?
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 (including "audio out of sync" or "play again" button appearance before end of video) 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 preview (usually five minutes or longer) of each video workshop, simply click on the "Preview Video" button below any of the workshop listings as you browse around the site. You can also access the video preview from the any of the workshop details pages, available via the PREVIEW buttons below the art workshop listings.

Does this site work on Android Tablets?
Yes, but because of the ongoing development and challenges of HTML5 and Flash, you have to install both the Firefox app and download the final-ever Flash app. Here's the sequence:
Email that link to your tablet and open it; it will download as an app.
Restart Firefox and wherever a Flash video plays, tap here "Active Plugin" button, which will open the Flash app.
You must use in full-screen mode, and the "collapse full-screen mode" button (bottom-right of the player) will not display. With practice you'll be able to find it at bottom-right to close the video. The videos should play well in full-screen mode (depending on your Internet speed, of course). We will be upgrading the site in the near future to eliminate the need for this workaround.
