YouTube Art Videos & Famous Artists Guide

YouTube art deserves it's own article, devoted to discovering what types of art are popular on video-sharing site YouTube, along with what people like to use these video resources for. In general, art lovers tend to use YouTube for two main reasons, either to find out about specific painting techniques, or learn about specific art history, whether it's a particular artist, painting or art movement.

An instant browse of Google keywords shows typically the most popular searches to be for Van Gogh related YouTube videos, and for painting training tips. Other popular topics include watercolor painting tips and other famous artists including Monet, Picasso and so on.

Some important points to remember with YouTube is the fact that its market isn't associated with traditional art followers - it can be mainly, but not entirely, for your younger generations of internet users. Therefore, this is to inevitably reflected within the types of art which can be searched for, and can be found, online. There is a clear bias towards newer types of art, dating from impressionist as much as modern day. Renaissance & Baroque art is represented, however, not to the extent that it is normal popularity would expect. Indeed, relatively fresh artists like British Graffiti Innovator Banksy are certain to get more interest compared to a classically appreciated artist such as Caravaggio or Bernini. Older surfers often still prefer to use books and difficult copies of information to both find out about art history, plus gain knowledge to aid their own works.

In the future years, YouTube will end up more of a tool for all those generations, and this should create a broader spectrum of art in the movies' content. For now, it remains an excellent source for exerts from professional dvds so that you can demo DVD purchases. You can even quickly learn some key facts about important artists without picking up a book. And finally its best me is probably to go beyond traditional print media and enable training to be shown in action, so learning becomes easier and more fun. Savannah Thomas
