I would like to share this news cast with you about the best art instructor in the world, as far as I'm concerned.
You know how they say 'that he who can't teaches", well definately that's not how it is with Joe. His paintings are fabulous and gorgeous and he is an Award Winning Artist. You can check out his paintings at
I have known Johannes for 7 or 8 years now, and was his student for 3 years. I also am proud to say that I've been to his home in Canada, and met his lovely wife, Patty, and his sons. Johannes was gracious enough to give me a one on one painting lesson that lasted all day long. I do have to admit that I really pushed myself that day and just about collapsed at the end. I have a neuro muscular disease, basically it's a muscle weakness called Slow Channel Myasthenia Gravis.
He is such a caring and giving person, not willing to give up on you until you understand. As you can tell I think the world of Johannes Vloothius, and am truly blessed to not only have stumbled across his live on-line art class years back, but to have met him in person and painted with him. You can check out his classes for yourself, just go to and click on the yellow school bus. Free classes are being held this week at 5 Eastern Standard Time, every day.
