A good painting integrates various interconnected concepts, one change always affecting another, creating a circular path towards the finish line. Therefore, in order to learn these essential concepts, Scott believes it is important to approach them as an integrated whole and understand how they relate to one another. Furthermore, rather than the 2-3 hour long instructional video approach where you watch others solve problems, concepts are presented in shorter, more manageable and focused videos (3-50 minutes). Scott's hope is that the associated assignments help guide you in solving problems that arise and finding your unique artistic vision.
Adventure of Painting is meant for artists and aspiring artists of all abilities and levels. Scott explains, “Adventure of Painting is not a beginner’s course any more than it is an advanced course. This adventure of learning and study is a lifetime journey; one that we all have to do in order to grow.”
While Scott uses primarily oil and gouache, the concepts presented in Adventure of Painting will apply to artists working in a variety of media including (but not limited to) oil, acrylic, gouache, watercolor, pastels, and digital.
When you begin the Adventure of Painting course, it is important to first choose your medium that you will work in. A supply list is emailed to you as soon as you enroll and can also be found as a download in the "Getting Started" series under the episodes titled: "Gouache and Materials" and "Oil Painting Stuff".
Adventure of Painting (AOP)’s Signature Course is offered for a lifetime access fee of $349. AOP’s Signature Course is made up of 3 Adventure Series (with approximately 15 videos each). Each video has an assignment to help guide you in applying the information.

Adventure of Painting is all the content (and more!) that Scott would cover in an in-person workshop. While in-person workshops are currently on hold, future workshops will be revamped and offered in inspiring places. Imagine painting outdoors alongside Scott in incredible places! Workshops spaces will be offered to only those that have dedicated time and committed to the work and assignments inside Adventure of Painting.
More information will be emailed when we are able to start in-person workshops again. If you have not heard anything on in-person workshops via the AOP email, that means workshops are still on hold.
An upgrade to the Continuing Education Membership can be purchased at any time after AOP's Signature Course has been purchased. For example, if you sign up today for the Signature Course you can upgrade to the Continuing Education Membership two months from now.

We do not offer refunds. Please understand our reasoning:
In order to paint well, the foundation must be clearly understood. AOP's Signature Course is centered around growing your understanding of the critical concepts of painting, both of which are undoubtedly difficult and complex to accomplish. We obsess over the quality and content of our learning material, have taken years to put together the course with incredible thought and intention, and provide what we believe is crucial to learn how to paint in your medium of choice. The testimonials speak for themselves.
It is our mission to make the complex more manageable but the hard work still must be done. The execution is in your hands. Instead of requesting a refund, we invite you to ask questions and ask the work of yourself; participate in doing the assignments as they all are to be done in the medium of your choice. We believe in the product we offer and believe everything is here to help you attain the goals you are seeking. We hope you will return to the assignments and content and find many ah-ha moments in your painting adventure.
