About Us

PaintTube wants to help you become a better artist so you can proudly show off your artwork, and feel confident that it’s worth showing. You’ll receive instruction from award-winning painters, among them some of the best-known artists in the world.

PaintTube provides premium art instruction designed to help you learn faster and retain more, delivering Hollywood-quality, professionally produced,  high-definition art instruction videos with extreme clarity, excellent sound, and perfect light. This is especially refreshing in a world of Zoom calls and phone-made videos that may have poor sound, few closeups, and amateurish lighting.

Our painting demonstrations offer you extreme closeups and detail, with a better view than you could get in the first row of an in-person workshop. You’ll have clarity and understanding of each brushstroke. 

Your videos are delivered to the PaintTube app, allowing you to store your library forever so you can watch on the go on your smartphone, tablet, laptop, PC, or big-screen TV. And we continue to make DVDs available for those who prefer a physical library.

We wish to preserve the lifetime of learning accumulated by our artists so that their legacy will live on forever. Our courses provide you with invaluable insights and techniques to help you become the artist you want to be, along with in-depth interviews so you can understand the people behind the art. 

PaintTube is part of the Streamline Art Family, which includes art magazines, art newsletters, art products, online and in-person art conferences, and art trips and retreats.

PaintTube is the vision of founder Eric Rhoads, an artist and art magazine publisher who wanted a better art instruction video experience. Our family includes legacy video projects from Liliedahl and Creative Catalyst.
