Find your Artistic Flow in 2024!


Are you looking for a shift in perspective? A way to loosen up so you don’t get caught in the details? Or maybe it’s drawing that’s been holding you back? Perhaps you already have some artistic concepts and principles down, but struggle to bring it all together? Have you taken multiple courses and workshops, only to find that your work is still not where you want it to be? 

Your time is precious. It’s time for a different approach!

You have a story to tell. You have a life to share. And your art is your voice.

But how do you do this? 

The first step to finding your unique voice is having a solid  knowledge base and the real-world tools to express yourself with confidence. And that is precisely what Learning To See is designed to deliver. All this, and much, much more.


The Learning To See comprehensive course is the whole package! It's designed for artists at any stage of their journey.  There's never been a better time than now to master your artistry and find your flow.  
This was like learning to read, it opened a whole new universe for me.

-Rebecca Arndt

Hello! I'm Gabriel Lipper, a professional painter, instructor and founder of 8Paint Infinite Arts. 

After years of suffering through the rigors of classical training, I came to develop my own way of seeing. One that felt authentic to me and lit me up, from the inside out. It combined the traditional academic approach with my own contemporary style and love of painting. It was a long road to get here and, let's be honest, the creative path is one of realization and self-discovery that never really ends.

Over the last 25 years working as a professional painter, and through much trial and error, I came to develop the specific tools and techniques necessary to build a strong foundation and inner confidence. It's from this place, that creative freedom, flow and transformation is achieved.

And this is why I created Learning To See! I want to give you the lessons that took me years to learn and help catapult you to new heights. 

I came looking to change up and be more confident in my personal expression, and I feel that I truly achieve this. As confirmation, and just to brag a bit, my pink saxophone player won an award in a local art show and actually sold!

-Linda Morton

Learning is not linear! Many online courses today either teach you how to imitate the style of the instructor or promise step-by-step instruction for creating ‚Äúgood‚ÄĚ art.¬†

Learning To See is different because it is the complete course. It is designed to nurture your own unique style, while at the same time providing you with the building blocks necessary to make great art without wasting time. 

Through a structured curriculum, engaging content, countless demonstrations, and examples, this course teaches you how to integrate concepts and principles from both your head and heart to your paintbrush. 

The coaching feedback and the Learning To See global community continuously support your artistic growth and provide a platform that allows you to achieve the quality and style of art that you have always dreamed of.

With Learning To See, you will excel where you once struggled. And the flow of your artistic expression will become second nature.

Discover new and surprising tools and creative applications that push the boundaries of what you thought possible in your painting.

I have been drawing my whole life, but it was not until becoming involved in the Learning to See program that I learned how to take that skill, from the simple sketch of a subject to the full composition of a dynamic painting.

¬†This lesson blew my mind and broke open my whole world of art-making. I found a new scale to my art voice, gained so much joy and confidence that I began making bold forays into disrupted realism. In the middle of the course, I began to be juried into regional shows and winning awards, not to mention selling more work. One of my works in this new genre has been juried into the Disrupted Realism show in the Buckham Gallery, juried by author John Seed.‚ÄĚ
