My name is Mike Svob.

Since 1982, I have been a full-time artist based in Vancouver, Canada. I am the author of “Paint Red Hot Landscapes That Sell” and a former president of the Federation of Canadian Artists. Over the past 30 years, I have shared my skills and love for painting via workshops across North America and Europe. Through these workshops, I have taught and mentored hundreds of artists at different stages in their development.

This Winter, I am embarking on a new and exciting project – an online course for acrylic painters of all skill levels. You can get a taste of the course and my teaching style on my new YouTube Channel where I share painting tips, techniques, and business advice on a weekly basis.

If you feel that this opportunity would be well received by the members of Arts South Dakota, I encourage you to sign up here for updates and additional information.

When I was the President of the Federation of Canadian Artists (FCA), we constantly struggled to get quality resource materials to share with our members. I have written three articles for beginner, intermediate and advanced painters that I am happy to share with your members. Feel free to access them here.

Thanks for your time. I look forward to the prospect of working with Arts South Dakota!

Best regards,

Mike Svob
