Another great art lesson from a great teacher! Review by Sena
Rating

I have purchased almost all of the art lessons with Jane that are out so far, and they have all been inspiring and helpful. I think the alcohol markers one is my favorite so far tho! I've never been a big fan of alcohol markers before because I couldn't get the look I wanted with them, and I wasn't going to buy this lesson because I "knew" already that I didn't like these kinds of markers. But really, I should have known better :) I bought it and I loved it! Jane's lesson was fun, and informative, and the piece she created within it is as beautiful and playful as always! She is a wonderful teacher and makes you feel like you can do what she is doing too! So after this lesson I have pulled out my alcohol markers, gotten some marker paper, and I'm playing with my markers in a more relaxed way, which has made all the difference. I love that I can come back to this lesson anytime I need a refresher about the markers, or whenever I want some inspiration. I definitely recommend any of her art lessons! They are wonderful!

Alcohol Markers Review by Judith
Rating

I have had my alcohol markers for awhile. I even decorated my bike helmet with them.
Jane has outdone herself on this one. As with all of her lessons, I learned way more than I paid for.
These little lessons are the deal of the century. Keep them coming.
I could just put one of these lessons on when I'm down and Jane's cheerful personality not only teaches me something but brings my spirits up. Thanks Jane, you're the best.

Awesome and Inspiring Review by courtney

Just like all of Jane's videos this one doesn't disappoint. A lot of information and techniques but the PDF is full of detail.

Jane I enjoy your bubbly spirit - it is infectious. Keep churning out the videos. I think $2.99 is a small price to pay. I have purchased some of Jane's other videos from her site and they do not disappoint either.

Short, sweet, packed with tips and worth the price Review by Michelle

I love all of Jane's lessons and this one didn't disappoint. An awful lot packed in to the video - you need to watch it a few times. The supporting pdf expands nicely on the video. Gave me inspiration to get out the markers and play. The more you practice the more you learn. Thanks Miss Jane :)

Second try, I hope this one works, or maybe two reviews. There is a lot of information packed into this and all of the other lessons from Jane. I highly recommend them. They will help me find other ways to use my stash. I look forward to the rest of them. Thanks Jane!

Excellent! Review by Gabriella

I absolutely love alcohol markers!!! These lessons are amazing because Jane opens up a whole world of possibilities! I not only learned other techniques about alcohol markers but I also learned new techniques in art journaling. I love how Jane often plays with different materials and makes magic. I see some negative reviews, but I think these lessons are just introductions to what magic you can create in your own art. Learn by doing, experiment, make mistakes. If you want more detail to the lessons, take one of Jane Davenport's workshops, you will end up creating great artwork. These are mini lessons, designed to introduce you to the endless possibilities of your own art supplies. So please for the price this is a world of knowledge and totally worth it!

One very talented lady that share openly Review by Vicky
Rating

I have purchased almost every single one of these lessons and signed up for every single one of her online classes. I have never come across a teacher so open, caring and giving of herself and her talents.

If you are considering purchasing one of these lessons - do it. Yes they aren't a full blown in depth lesson showing you the nitty gritty of drawing and creating art, but they never cease to amaze me and I never cease to learn something from them. I debated with myself about this class - I am accredited Copic teacher - but I purchased it anyway and loved it.

So go ahead and go without one cup of tea/coffee today and indulge yourself in one of Jane's lessons......

And NO this s not a paid review LOL

Inspiring as usual! Review by Joanne M.
Rating

I wanted to put my two cents in as far as other negative comment. These beautiful lessons are just snippits of what lovely Jane has to offer. People coming in expecting to come out Picasso are a bit disillusioned. The magic comes with experimenting with conventional artist products! I have found all of Jane's lessons to be great starts to endless possibilities, and for $3 in this day and age...I'll take it all day long!!

p.s. Jane ~ do not change a thing about your incredible voice & personality! You ARE my prozac in person!!

I made a beautiful 2 page mermaid and fish following Jane's video and PDF instruction. They worked beautifully together and I learned so many new techniques ... especially loved using the tracing paper and now I know exactly what type to use to get the same result as Jane! YAY! I used spectrum noir markers and prismacolor pencils. I love Jane's art lessons and have bought others to do! It is great value at $3.00 (can't even buy a good quality magazine for $3.00!). You rock Jane!!! xxx

Good intro to alcohol markers Review by Virginia
Rating

Great mini lesson from Jane. Perfect for introducing us to what can be done with these markers. To the person who expected more, this did only cost $3. The purpose of these lessons is to introduce folks to just a few of the myriad of art supplies available. This should help one decide if they want to explore further. And as for Jane being giggly, would you have preferred she be gloomy? Jane loves what she does, loves to teach and she is playful. I love that about her! I find her enthusiasm and laughter contagious. Don't change Ms. Danger!

Techniques Galore! Review by Joanna
Rating

Wow! I have been using Copic Markers for quite some time now. I have also taken several classes from Jane Davenport but was completely wowed by the amount of new techniques she packs into one little $2.99 lesson. Jane's pleasant enthusiasm is always inspiring and she is a joy to watch. The PDF does not disappoint and is gorgeous, as well as informative. The lesson moves fast, but you can re-watch, as well as stop and start the lesson. Alcohol Markers are very versatile instruments that require a bit of practice. They are used here in a different manner than I have ever seen used anywhere else. Plus there are mermaids. How can you go wrong with mermaids?

Well worth it! Review by Jodie

I think I must have purchased a different alcohol market lesson than the commenters above. Obviously it is not a full workshop but I loved this lesson as it showed me the versatility of the markers and I have also viewed some stunning finished work by other artists who have purchased this. For $2.99 USD it was well worth it! Thanks Jane for your wonderful , bright, happy presentation. I look forward to buying all your lessons :)

Putting it together and it's feeling good Review by Jo-anne

Thank you Jane, anther great lesson. What I have taken from 'my' art lessons is that I can experiment with my new skill. Then my lightbulb moment comes and realise I can add, all the elements and skills I am learning and find I am developing a style of my own, under the guidance of 'my' whimsical and expert tutor.
Another excellent class Jane.

This was wonderful!!!! Review by Vanessa Kiki

I don't know about the crabby person that had to take the time to write a negative review.. But she was WRONG!!! Sounds like someone got up on the wrong side of the artcart!!! This video and all of the other short lessons are just wonderful! These are meant to be just concise, informative lessons..a jump start !!! It's not a masters degree! For Pete's sake! Sheesh ! I never even knew what an alcohol marker was and didn't know if I wanted to buy them! So here I can see fantastic ways of using them ... Thanks Jane for the heads up .. I love all of your classes and this one is a tiny bit of super cool!!!!

Great value and instant joy Review by Annika
Rating

For such a small price, this lesson is a big injection of fun and inspiration. However, what I really appreciate, apart from Jane's wonderful and contagious enthusiasm for art supplies (and mermaids), is that for me this lesson bridged the gap that had formed between my alcohol markers and the type of paper or surface that I prefer to work on in an art journal, and it offered me a method that works for me.

Excellent short video lessons... I have them all! Review by Daisylou

BRILLIANT AND WELL WORTH THE $2.99. What's that? Not even a cup of tea!
These short videos are full of inspiration and give a fabulous insight of what can be done with all the products we have at home and never get round to using, in her own unique style.
They are not supposed to be full workshops. (Those can be found on her website and are indepth and long.) This collection is an easy watch and amazingly cheap. I have collected them all! :)

More than disappointing Review by Judy
Rating

How to begin? This lesson starts with a jiggly camera and a giggly Jane who seemed to be talking to three-year-olds. On to the lesson: Each technique is described in very few words, leaving more questions than answers, and at the end there is a nice piece of mixed media art and me thinking I had not gotten $3 worth of anything. I've seen more helpful lessons free on YouTube. Sorry! Perhaps these lessons need to be rethought. If they are only 7 minutes long, perhaps one technique could be taught in more detail instead of the jumbled way they are piled on in this video.

Amazing value Review by Jane 'Danger' Davenport
Rating

I love making these Art Lessons - the intention behind them is a short and sweet overview of some of my techniques. They are not in-depth drawing lessons, but a fun jolt of inspiration!
They are designed so that the video and PDF work together. One gives the visual, and the other gives the detail.

Do you need all the art supplies I use? Of course not! You can use what you have. I hope you enjoy them as they were created - a jolt of inspiration!

xoxo

Disappointed Review by ANg
Rating

The site kept crashing so I will continue with my review, while I understand this was not a workshop it was a lesson, I felt the video could have been slowed down which would have created a more warmer lesson.
Would I take another? I bought two the same day and have not done the 2nd one but I don't think so. Save your money, save those 3 dollars. Save them for 6 months at 3.00 a week or even a day depending on what you can afford/ and take a full workshop/ its worth more.

Very Disappointed Review by ANg
Rating

I guess I should have expected this when the price was so reasonable. The video was a little under 7 minutes long, was in super speed time. The information was given SO fast, and so vague on the video. The PDF was a little better HOWEVER these mini workshops are not for a beginner, you will be overwhelmed and more than likely not have half the supplies that are presented here. These minis are like teasers. Do not take this lessons if you wanting to use your alcohol marker in a conventional way, ie learning how to blend them, specifically. This is not a full workshop, This is mini teaser workshop . Again very disappointed. There is a video however you have to download the PDF and it is embedded in the PDF, And when you hover over that area and click it , it opens a window for YOUTUBE. EASY to miss. While I have taken many many workshops, Spent well over $300 on Janes full workshops, she is a contagious and fun leader, this one leaves me empty.
