4.0 out of 5 stars Instructional December 3, 2001
Subscription Term Name:1 year
I have purchased these magazines before, and found them instructional, eye-apealing, and usually read them cover to cover. Step-by-step instructions, and plenty of color pictures. Each issue has something new. Definitely worth the money. I am a self-taught artist, and have found insightful ways of practicing through this mag. It covers a range of mediums and methods, and normally has a special section of artwork from various artists. A valuable tool for any artist:)

5.0 out of 5 stars a must for students and teachers of all levels March 3, 2003
Subscription Term Name:1 year
The Artist's Magazine is full of advice and ideas for anyone studying or teaching art; from its first monthly department, "Dialogue", which is a question and answer column from readers, to the final page "Master Class", which gives the history and analysis of a famous work, you will get articles that cover many techniques and media, as well as guidelines on the business side of art.
Taking the March 2003 issue as an example, the cover story is on the exquisite gouache paintings of Daniel K. Tennant. One of the four works pictured is broken down and shown in six stages, from the initial layout to the final delicate details.
Artist Joseph Frassetta explains his technique in "Reining it In", and tells us what materials and tools he uses to create his realistic portraiture and animal studies.
There is another article on landscape painting through the four seasons, and others on doing a self-portrait, mixing the use of colored pencils, and so much more. Some favorite monthly articles are "Art Clinic" and "Technical Q&A", which always have useful tips.
The back of the magazine has classified listings of art related opportunities, workshops, etc., and even the ads can be an informative resource.
The Artist's Magazine also sponsors a yearly competition, with many categories, including a student/beginner division.
The magazine has medium weight paper, good color reproduction, and teachers and students, especially of a traditional style of art, will find much to enjoy and learn in every issue.

5.0 out of 5 stars Indispensable Source of Information and Inspiration January 1, 2003
By B.P.
Subscription Term Name:1 year
I've enjoyed this magazine for years and have the habit of keeping all issues because they never fail to possess something of proven value. It's top-notch for getting great ideas and quality advise on anything pertaining to art. Like any other magazine, it gives you a dose of advertising, but it's not incredible over done.

Subjects range from portrait/self-portrait to landscape, still life and abstract design. But it doesn't end there; this magazine details style diversities from all across the board. Offering examples for improving techniques in various mediums, but generally pencil, watercolor, pastel, oil and acrylic. And no matter what the area or medium you specialize in, you'll be able to pick up handy tips in every issue. Sections of interest regularly highlight a specific tool or technique idea. Inform readers on market issues and other important business concerns. As well as provide interesting articles on artists and a little news and awareness of art related events. Plus will occasionally dip into art history and perform art contests.
This magazine will energize your motivations with impressive art and will help you improve on your own with short & simple instructions. Truly is thee magazine to have, for an artist at any skill level. [review author: tilley_traveler]

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best Artist's Magazine out there! March 11, 2002
Subscription Term Name:1 year
This is the best Artist's magazine being published. I have had subscriptions to them all at one time or another. I have been a subscriber for at least ten years now. It's the only magazine that I can actually use in a class on how to: My students learn from the articles,and so do I! K.J. Murray

4.0 out of 5 stars Solid and interesting artists publication September 24, 2005
Subscription Term Name:1 year|Verified Purchase
Whether you are a novice or a pro, this magazine is a must. It is not overly technical and it features a variety of media. I am a faithful reader and I frequently commend it to others. My only gripe is the inconsistency of writing. Some articles are little more than glorified captions for a few photographs of an artist's work. Other articles do an excellent job of explaining what the artist did to get the wonderful effect displayed in the photographs of the artwork. I'm more interested in technique than the artist's background and training. All in all, though, buy it you'll like it.

1.0 out of 5 stars Good Magazine, Horrible Customer Service! Beware! November 18, 2012
By Soi
Subscription Term Name:1 year|Verified Purchase
I ordered a 1 year subscription to this great magazine in February 2012. I received multiple back issues at the start of my subscription instead of upcoming issues (and the only new issue I received was extremely damaged) and then I was notified that my subscription was up in Nov 2012. I contacted Amazon and they put me in touch with the American Artist Magazine customer service, I told them that I did not want the back issues which I already own copies of but rather wanted my subscription to end in feb 2013 when it was supposed to. They told me that I had a 1 year subscription that ends in Nov 2012 and that they would extend my subscription to Dec because of the damaged issue I received! What the heck???

Amazon helped to cancel my subscription and get a partial refund but I will never receive a refund for the back issues I was sent that I already own. I am very disappointed.
Also, I was supposed to receive one more magazine and it never came.

(BTW, Amazon has been great the whole time, very responsive and helpful!)

I recommend the magazine but this is just ridiculous.
