"I recently took an online art course with Sarah and it was a fantastic experience! Sarah is a brilliant teacher and artist, and is able to clearly explain and demonstrate techniques in a way that is easy to understand. She is also very patient and encouraging, which helped me feel confident in my own abilities as an artist. Overall, I would highly recommend taking an art course with Sarah. Whether you're a beginner or more experienced artist, you're sure to learn a lot and have a great time in the process. Thank you, Sarah, for your amazing instruction and support!"

"Sarah's art lessons are a game-changer! As a beginner artist, I was feeling pretty lost and unsure about where to start. But Sarah's clear explanations and practical tips helped me feel confident in my abilities and excited to continue learning. With the flexibility of the online format, I was able to complete the lessons on my own schedule. I highly recommend Golden Ratio Academy’s courses to anyone looking to improve their art skills – it's a fantastic investment in your creative growth."

"I absolutely loved taking my art course with Sarah! I’m still in high school and I was a bit nervous about taking an art class with her because I wasn't sure if I was "good enough" at art. But Sarah's positive and encouraging teaching style helped me feel confident in my abilities and allowed me to enjoy the class even more. The course material was so interesting and covered a wide range of techniques and subjects. I learned so much about different art styles and techniques, and I loved being able to try them out for myself. Sarah also gave me great feedback on my projects, she was super encouraging and very kind. I didn’t think I could ever draw as good as I do now! I would highly recommend art classes with her to anyone, but especially to others who may be feeling unsure about their art skills. Sarah is a fantastic instructor and I had such a great time. My art class was the highlight of my week!"

How would you like to learn?

Do you prefer to dive into learning at your own pace? Or want to have live access to an instructor to check your practice assignments and progress? Or, do you learn best in a live (online) class setting, with other students joining live along with you?  

However you learn best, we want to make it accessible to you. Our courses are (and will be) available in a variety of formats. 

Pre-made Courses

Premade Courses are great for those who enjoy learning on their own, at their own pace, and on their own schedule. These courses are completely self-directed. You can watch, pause, and replay the lessons at any time.

Hybrid Courses

In our Hybrid Courses, you can go over the lessons on your own time, just as in the pre-made courses - but when you're ready, join your instructor in our live class space to get live feedback on your work!

Live Courses & Events

Live Courses are taught at a set schedule, with a group of students. Availability for live courses is limited, as it depends on the instructors' schedule and the number of seats available - so you might want to jump at the opportunity whenever these pop up!
