    Pastry art is very difficult to "fit" in a tutorial .. Be more specific what exactly you are interested In.
    Cookies.. Cakes... Sugar art.. Chocolate tehniques ect ect..
    Try to google or YouTube have very nice tutorials about pastry..
    Cheers

    If looking for all things cake try

    You will want to subscribe as she has produced many many vids.

    IMO, Edna has supernatural talent and is very thorough with her tutorials.

    Also gladly answers emails and is very generous with both time and info.

    Has a book out (has to be true 'cuz I read it on the internet ;-)

    It has to be narrowed down to what it is exactly you want to learn for now.  With me,  I search for the subject,  like for example:

     "how to make a French  Macaron tower"  or " making a purse cake'  etc.... then all the videos and images will come up,  then you take it from there.  I can spend all day on my computer looking.  Some videos are great,  some are lame.  I like the ones done by Professional Chefs because it comes with an explanation as to what it is they are doing.  SOme of them I can tell in the beginning that they are done by people who are trying hard and w/out experience.  I also do a lot of reading,  then followed by the trial and error stage..  good luck.
