Video Tutorial Previews: Easy Mixed Media with Seth Apter

We are thrilled to announce the release of two new video tutorials by one of our favorite people, Seth Apter!

Seth Apter is the voice behind the well-loved blog, The Altered Page, which serves as a gathering place for artists worldwide. As a Ph. D is psychology, he splits his time between creating art in his studio and seeing clients in his private practice office in New York City—a combination that creates life experiences that are the foundation of his love of multiple layers in his art.  Seth is the author of The Pulse of Mixed Media and his work has been published in numerous books and magazines. Visit him at

Both of Seth’s DVDs will be available for purchase in the coming weeks. Rest assured that as soon as they hit the North Light Shop, I’ll update this page with links! For now, though, these video previews will have to do!
