Hey there! My name is Stan Prokopenko, I’m an artist and teacher. Proko is a resource for artists to get good art instruction videos.

When you watch Proko tutorials you’ll notice that I try to make them entertaining while keeping them educational. I feel that if you’re having fun and enjoying the learning process, you learn better. You retain more information, you pay more attention, you’re much more likely to continue learning and more likely to go back and re-watch tutorials. And it will leave you more inspired and motivated to go practice.

I think that making learning fun is good in every way and that’s why it’s at the core of Proko. If fun and informative had a baby they would name it Proko.

I’ll be your host for most of the videos, but I want to get other professionals to come by and share some of their knowledge. If you are or know somebody that could contribute to the Proko artist community, shoot me an email.
