Bring out your inner artist with Folio Academy - A Giveaway!

When I was younger, one of my favorite classes in school was art.  I had the opportunity to express myself and no matter what we were learning, I always had so much fun.  As an adult, I've tried to develop my artistic abilities but ended up getting frustrated because of a lack of instruction.  I had practically given up on honing my artistic skills until I was contacted by Folio Academy and saw all they had to offer.
What is Folio Academy?
According to their site, "Folio Academy is a site where anyone can learn to improve their artistic ability.  Folio Academy provides art lessons for every age group in just about every area of the visual arts - beginners who have never drawn before and experienced artists who want to improve their skills and everyone in between.  We have an ever growing compilation of video lessons from professional artists helping you with your craft by teaching you their secrets and techniques."
Folio Academy provides easy to follow lessons for you to learn just about any of the visual arts.  From Children's Book Illustrating to Painting on your iPad, they've got something for everyone.  Courses are very affordable and you are able to go at your own pace.  It's a great way to fine tune your artistic abilities!

Where can you find more information on Folio Academy?
If you're interested in looking into the courses offered by Folio Academy simply head over to their website.  There you'll find a link to get the supplies you need to make beautiful visual art.  You can also purchase one of the courses, right on the site.  For more up to date information on current and new courses as well as promotions, add them on Facebook.
