Learn how to draw, paint and design by following our free illustrated art lessons. You can also brush up on your art history in our art appreciation section.

Artyfactory is designed, illustrated and written by myself, John MacTaggart, an art teacher from Glasgow, Scotland. I graduated from the Glasgow School of Art in 1974 and have more than thirty years teaching experience. One day several years ago, I sat down with a library book to teach myself something about web design and just kept on going. Artyfactory is the result so far.

Artyfactory offers free art and design lessons for all. Learn how to draw, paint and design by following our illustrated step by step instructions. We are building a growing resource of tutorials, art history notes, ideas and techniques designed to improve your artistic skills and to increase your enjoyment in creating artworks.
