This page will show you a little of the "Back to Basic" lessons:
And finally, here is a page that lists some lessons that can be watched for free:
You want to start with the basic lessons so you can see how Ginger teaches and the skills that you learn in lessons are used on the more advanced paintings. You have to have a good foundation to build upon.
Here's is what we suggest for those beginning with Ginger's Lessons.
We use a "Cookie" rating system to let the student know how "hard" a lesson might be. For example, THE WHITE HORSE video is a 3-Cookie lesson, but the blending techniques for the "1-Cookie" Apple and Ball & Cylinder lessons are the same brush strokes needed for shading the White Horse.
This list of lessons here is what Ginger recommends as your starting lessons. If you are an accomplished artist, you too may pick up a tip or two. Ginger has provided a list of acrylic paints and canvas sizes for the lessons and brushes. See: https://gingercooklive.gallery

We have lots more "1-Cookie" lessons that are fun to do, and we make sure every month more are added. Take a look at the 1-Cookie lessons here https://www.gingercooklive.gal
As you go through the basic lessons, absolutely send your work into Ginger so she can guide and help you with the Personal Art Coaching. You don't want to rush through a lot of lessons and not verify that you are doing them right. 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.
Let's start off with good habits!
