How to Make Great Value Studies free lesson

Value is one of the most important things an artist can master. This lesson helps with that! And you don’t even need any special supplies to do it. Have a pencil? You’re all set.

Get this short and sweet art lesson (on the house!)


You will get a great 10 minute lesson on value studies, homework (a challenge), if you choose to take it, and an offer to share your work with me for kudos or help – or with my 5k Instagram followers, and you’ll see occasional art news.



Hi, I’m Jessie Rasche, an internationally collected impressionist artist. I love helping artists develop their skills and confidence!

I’m giving this lesson away because I want you to experience my teaching. I think that once you do, you will want to try out my workshop. (And just for joining the challenge, you will get a very special offer – but no obligation.)

Watch at your leisure and contact me for support if you have any questions!

And if you would like your work shared, I’ll share your challenge posts with my 5k followers through my Instagram stories! More on that in the lesson.

What students are saying about my online teaching

“I can’t tell you how excited I am to find you and finally make a decision to paint again. I have been in my oil paint four days in a row.  Saturday was so fun. I loved painting with a limited palette. That was an eye opener. […]  I do believe with some guidance I can achieve what my mind envisions. Sincerely,  Anne Marie”

“I have enjoyed your online lessons….. You are a very talented artist and I’ve enjoyed  ‘meeting’ you!”  Shelley P

Would you like a better eye for value? Would you like a stronger understanding of your value choices?

If yes, try out this lesson and challenge.

Understanding value is an important topic for all artists – whether you’ve been painting for decades or are just starting out.

You don’t need art supplies to complete the challenge!

Use a pencil and scratch paper or a full painting setup – whatever you are comfortable with. So no art supply shopping is necessary.

Happy Painting!
