Art Side of Life-Patreon




Hey, guys! In this episode, I am chatting with Daniel Folta, the student of classical oil painting at The Art Academy and Evolve Artist program. He apprenticed under master portrait-painter Kevin Murphy, our guest in episode 197. He talks about his experiences of choosing the right art education, being an apprentice under Kevin, and becoming a full time artist, making a living from making art. Enjoy!!
