Learn to paint
with Scott Christensen
I love this photo. I spent a day with these year nine students teaching them how to create a basic seascape painting as part of the Sheldon College Professional Incursion Program. In a few short hours we covered the basics and students achieved great results with just one coat of acrylic paint. Many of the students continued on with their paintings over the next few days. Once the basic workflow is set out, the painting process is a lot of fun 🙂
“We were thrilled to have Scott Christensen join our team here at The Australian School of the Arts. Scott developed and created an exciting landscape/seascape painting course. He guided our students from investigating differing styles of landscape, to prepping canvas, through the painting techniques to finishing a piece, ready for our exhibition opening which was attended by family, friends and college officials. Scott’s knowledge and insights were remarkable and his strategies fast tracked the students to incredible results. I recommend Scott’s learning methods. He has left a lasting impression on our students and the college. Thank-you Scott! “
Darren Harvey Director - Australian School of the Arts
“Scott is an outstanding teacher and mentor to our high school students. He encourages young people to believe in their own abilities and to have a go. Under Scott’s guidance our students achieved results far beyond their own expectations and all of them began to see themselves as artists rather than simply as learners. Scott has the ability to share his considerable skills with others with patience and enthusiasm. I highly recommend Scott both as an artist and as a teacher.”
Vicky Leighton Head of Art - Church of England Grammar School
Thank you so much for the excellent work that you do with our students. Your passion for your work has certainly inspired them to greatness. I know that the students have really enjoyed your class. I really appreciate all your efforts – You are a superstar!”

Brilliant! 5 Stars! …Such an open and honest account of a ‘real’ life in the art world. I am a regular 39 year old guy who plays sport, works and has a young family. But I also LOVE art and painting is a huge passion. Scott’s videos have shown me how to become a better artist, but more importantly have shown me how to push myself in the ‘right’ directions. I have already re-watched as I’ve painted the different elements of my newest seascape. Great, easy to follow instructions and demonstrations. Money is tight in our house but this is one of the best investments we have made!
I am 72 years old, been painting for a while and have had tuition in different mediums. I have never quite got the hang of painting realistic oceans and along came Scott Christensen’s course and this is exactly what I have been wanting to learn. This is without a doubt the best art program, it’s very comprehensive, easy to follow and you can go as fast or as slow as you are capable of. I just love it. Best money I have spent. Totally recommend this course for the young and the old (slow learners ha ha). Thank you Scott for sharing your talent, I’ve already learned heaps and am only halfway through the course.
I highly recommend Scott’s course. I am a beginner and am able to take my time working through the course (the videos are great). Scott doesn’t forget the inexperienced and there is plenty of basic stuff for someone like me to get started on and work my way up, as well as plenty for the more experienced. I feel confident that if I keep putting into action what Scott teaches I can’t fail to improve and get to where I want to be with my art.
Thanks Scott Christensen for putting together this course, I am loving it. So much info and easy to follow…
I can totally recommend this course to anyone – I am a professional artist – and I have been absolutely blown away by what I have learnt from Scott’s videos and transcripts. For a start, I have completely cleaned up my studio and altered my approach to work – it’s amazing.
This is easily the best money I have spent on myself in a long time! the course is VERY comprehensive and Scott explains his process so well, it is like looking over his shoulder as he paints! I can highly recommend this course.
5 Stars – Amazing talent! Brilliant content, and an honest and very easy to follow teacher. Highly Recommend this course and the artwork of Scott Christensen
I have found the approach and friendliness helpful. The content is clear and concise. Scott Christensen is a master and I am amazed how much he is sharing from technique to colour blends. I like the option to read and watch. The website and modules are simple and extremely easy to use.
The price is awesome and when contacting Scott his replies are almost immediate. I feel supported and inspired. I am less than half way through this course and already feel like my skills have improved along with my confidence. I am seeing the results in the new techniques following the videos.
I think the only thing to beat this course is a face to face opportunity to paint alongside Scott. I want my name down first!
I have terminal cancer and this course has brightened my days and advanced my abilities already. I am so excited to complete this course to enjoy the benefits of hopefully adding my new skills to my existing style and earning an income.
I appreciate the transparency of discussing marketing and expanding your business and offering hints and tips from someone who has been there and done that.
I thank you Scott for this amazing course and would recommend to any skill level artist who may like to add a few new tricks to their artwork.
I have done about 1/3 of the course so far and just loving it! I have a lovely photo I want to paint but it includes fog so will have to wait until I have mastered the content in the course first. I am not going to bad considering I only started painting 2 years ago. Keep up the good work Scott! I recommend this course to everyone.
Hi ! This course is outstanding! 5 stars! Scott shares with us all his experience and gives us a method to follow, mandatory steps and tips to succeed! I was waiting for a such a course for a long long time! A huge job when you see all those videos ! The icing on the cake: Scott is also available to answer to any questions … Cheers!

Five Stars! – Best Painting course ever! I am still a learner painter, I have done a few courses, but never has one stayed in my head. There are no boring parts that make you want to skip forward, because every lesson teaches you something new and very important to the whole process. For two years I lost all confidence in myself ever painting something worth looking at. Now, thanks to you; As soon as I finish all my work for the day, I go into my painting room and just enjoy it. Thankyou Scott Christensen for showing me how to enjoy painting again.
Wow! What a course! I have been watching the video lessons and printing out the PDF’s almost non stop and have just finished; last night at 8.43pm – Saturday night. It took me one week and I really enjoyed it. Thank you for being so generous and genuine with the information, knowledge, skills and experiences. I have learnt so much – so much more than painting a picture. Thank you so much for all the information about how to paint, print, use Photoshop, sell work and stay focused. I am really inspired to start painting again and I can see how to fix some of my old work now and to go ahead and create new beautiful designs and know that with proper planning and taking a step by step approach, that I will be able to achieve a better product. I feel that I have learned how to be more patient with my work and to go about my painting more slowly; but with more direction …and how to actually paint better! Although I need to put all my learning into practice now which I am very excited about and hoping that I can remember everything (although I have all the resources at my fingertips) also to take one step at a time and enjoy it.
This has to be the most comprehensive art workshop I have ever done and I feel over the moon. So thank you very much I really appreciate the time and energy that you have put into developing this awesome online art education. Well done!
Anybody not sure about the purchase…? I can assure you it is worth it: I am only up to the Photoshop stuff and I can tell you I have learnt more practical stuff from Scott in one lesson that I did from 6 months of Photoshop at TAFE!
I have completed all of the video content and had a look at the PDF’s and highly recommend it. The money for value is awesome… Next step is to put it to practice! Looking forward to the two demo’s when they become available to. Thanks Scott for a great and well produced insight!
This is a great course, with so much content I find myself continually going back and learning more – Highly recommended!
5 Stars! – Very Good!
To all those considering: I am only 1/3 way through course and feel that it’s the best gift that I have given myself in a very long time… An investment into my art practice, a fresh insight to the ins and outs of seascapes… And a really easy to understand – no fuss delivery of content! I feel inspired again to paint my local beaches and the utilise techniques in my own style. Thank you Scott for a great course!
Scott thank you so much. I found your videos and notes so helpful. They are everything that you explained on the above video intro. It is such a versatile resource for any artist of any level with all differing amounts of timelines. Congratulations to you Scott. I am very grateful.
I am amazed at the amount of knowledge that Scott so willingly & generously passed on to us through this course. Definitely the beginning of a journey for me! I recommend this wealth of experience that he has given …. many years of learning ..much valuable content! Thank you Scott!
Whilst I really admired Scott’s paintings, I was really interested in learning the business side of the course. But going through the course has really helped me figure out how to approach my own paintings that I have been putting off. His step by step tutoring is fantastic for anyone who has been struggling with where to start. Scott is very generous with his knowledge and will literally take years off your learning – saving you time and money in the long run. Whilst I am still going through the course I fully recommend it to anyone wanting to get ahead with their artistic ventures.
Fantastic video instruction accompanied by downloadable PDF instruction. Fabulous course that I would recommend to everyone!
I signed up for the Paint the Ocean course last Saturday and have already watched most modules. The course is very professionally produced and is full of many useful tips and tricks to produce high quality artworks. Thanks so much for sharing your knowledge and experience. The techniques and fantastic artworks are a great inspiration. I am very much looking forward to the bonus demonstrations yet to come. Further down the track I hope you will conduct hands on workshops in your studio in Queensland. My home is on the Sunshine Coast, Queensland, however I currently reside in Singapore. Wishing you a very Merry Christmas and a happy New Year.
Thank you so very much for putting together your Paint the Ocean program. I’m an absolute beginner with acrylic and oil painting and your course makes for easy learning. I’ve had so many ah-ha! moments and I am only just starting the course. More importantly; it’s really fun and enjoyable to learn and to paint. My sincere thanks to you Scott!
Great course Scott! Brilliant Marketing and very informative… Loving the journey and learning heaps!
Wow really impressed… Trust me; A great course worth every Penny!… Super job Scott!
Fantastic Value! The course is so well put together and the bonus is the personal help in the Facebook group… So glad I purchased this!
A Christmas present to myself… Already a quarter of the way through and already worth the money… Very thorough and detailed demo’s with easy-to-understand explanations. Can’t wait to finish the course and get started. Thanks so much Scott for putting this together!
Fantastic course and mentor – I would highly recommend.
Congratulations to Scott Christensen for the release of this huge project. Scott is like an old sea captain; He knows the seas! He can help you navigate around a canvas like no other, creating stunning artworks of the ocean, waves and seascapes. Register and get ready for an awesome amount of information and specials!
5 out of 5! …I am only 25% through and have been printing the workbook modules as I go, so I have a manual to keep. I have been most pleased with what I have seen so far and appreciate your HUGE effort in putting it all together. Looking forward to continuing.
