Wishing Works Instructional Videos are a sequential course, designed to show viewers each step of the painting process from beginning to end. The first episode is an overview so that students can quickly get a sense of the entire process. After that, each episode will be an in depth look at one aspect of the painting process. While each episode is a stand alone lesson, they will each build upon skills learned in previous episodes, so it it highly recommended that viewers watch them in order.

Each episode features in depth narrative with clear explanations of the process, accompanied by closeup video of a painting or drawing as it is being created so that students can clearly see the practical application of the concepts being described. Diagrams, graphics and 3-D animations are used to help illustrate more complex concepts in a way that even beginning students will be able to easily understand.
