Personal Art Coaching Important Notice
Current Status - No Waiting List
as of December 7, 2021
Currently, when you sign-up for either a Monthly or Yearly Membership, the Personal Art Coaching (PAC) is included with your Membership fee for the VLL/WW or RED/BLUE/PURPLE memberships. There are times that we have to maintain a waiting list for new members, but if you are a current member when we make this announcement, you still receive your PAC privileges as long as you keep your membership in good-standings and current.
WHAT IS PERSONAL ART COACHING?
- Getting professional help with your artwork as you are working on it is worth its weight in gold.
- You see where your painting can be improved or what you have done correctly, and why it works.
- Helping you correct image and lines that detract from your painting
- Encouraging you as an artist and how to succeed best.
- Helping you seeing areas you could work on to have a more successful painting.
- To make a more compelling painting, Ginger often offers a personal video explaining where changes could be made and explain why.
- Help with non-tutorial paintings. The non-tutorial can be one you found in a photo or from another non-youtube artist.
- Ginger will give you honest suggestions to help you reach your art goals.
- Being able to send in art as you paint it for a quick check on the accuracy of the drawing or design
- Sending in a photo first to ask if it would make a good painting
WHAT DO I NEED TO DO TO SEND MY PAINTING FOR PERSONAL ART COACHING?
Take a photograph of your artwork straight onto the camera—making sure that the painting is tight and square in the final image.
Fill out the PAC ticket with the size of the artwork, medium, paint used, and type of help you desire. The more information that you provide, the better Ginger will be better equipped to help you.
We have a form that will let Ginger know a little bit more about the artist. Make sure you have sent in this form that tells Ginger a little about you and your personal goals. Fill out the "Get to Know You" form here https://www.gingercooklive.gallery/members-information/
Attach one or more reference photos for any non-tutorial painting.
Watch the video on the ticket form's side to see how to attach more than one image.
When changes have been made to your painting, send it back to Ginger for a final check and "complete" your ticket. This can be done numerous times with one painting.
Be patient as Ginger takes requests for Personal Art Coaching in the order that they are received. If you have not heard back from us in 7-days, use the Contact Us form to notify us, and we will check on the status. When you submit a PAC ticket, you should receive a confirmation email.
You are asked on the ticket form if you would like to share your artwork. If you do, please check the appropriate boxes and the name you want to use.
Video Personal Art Coaching Examples
WHAT DOES NOT QUALIFY FOR PERSONAL ART COACHING?
Ginger WILL NOT accept or comment on other YouTube Artists, including The Art Sherpa, Angela Anderson, or Paint with Jane, to name a few.
Non-tutorial art without a reference or references will be rejected immediately, which includes art from your imagination, with or without drinking!
A maximum of 4 Gallery or Youtube tutorial lessons per month may be submitted for PAC plus one original per month. If PAC is not requested, you may submit additional paintings to be shared so that they are in your ticket file and have the option to have them posted on Pinterest or elsewhere.
If you let your membership lapse, and then decide to rejoin at a later date, then you will have to let us know that you’d like to be on the PAC Waiting-list if we are under that “condition”. We do our very best to not invoke this condition, but there are only so many hours in a day that Ginger can devote to doing the Personal Art Coaching tickets and still get some painting done.
If you have any questions about the PAC system or anything else about our website, please use the “Contact Us” to let us know so that we can take care of you.
If you want to see sample Video PAC responses from Ginger, check out this playlist on The Tech Bear’s YouTube channel. Not all tickets will receive a Video PAC, but the majority do!
Included with Personal Art Coaching: A maximum of 4 Gallery or Youtube tutorial lessons per month may be submitted for PAC plus 1 original per month. If PAC is not requested you may submit additional paintings to be shared so that they are in your ticket file and have the option to have it posted on Pinterest. This means that you can send in one painting as many times as you need while you are working on it. The same painting does not count towards your totals.
Testimonials from our Members
Had a great first experience with video PAC
I encourage everyone who has not turned over their masterpiece for our teacher to coach you on, do it!!
Thank you Ginger Cook,
These branches were a challenge. I received some amazing feedback from Ginger about my lights and darks through video PAC. It was like she was talking right to me! Academy lesson. Pines of Rayol. Great lesson on mixing greens.
I just had the nicest video PAC from Ginger. I was feeling a little unsure about this painting and she totally turned my thinking around. Now I am fully energized again. VLL tutorial stone bottles and Mug.
So about the video PAC! OMG! It was like Ginger was right in the room with me! I was smiling the whole time and when she said my name - wow!!! I have been fortunate to have met a handful or two of celebrities through my son’s career as a musician, and I am always star struck. It was no different when I heard Ginger say my name! She is a star! Thank you Ginger!
Palette knife water lilies after coaching. Academy lesson. This painting is heavy. My canvas sheet feels like half kg with all the paints and modeling paste on it. I thought it was ruined it at first but a few days later my PAC saved my painting. After adding more lights and colors according to Ginger's coach, I like it much better now.
Ginger helped me fix several things including my chair, which is a bit more yellow than the original. I think I’m subconsciously trying to put Vincent’s yellow chair in here! Haha!! Ginger’s new video PAC format is amazing!!!
