A 6-week online painting course that helps unlock your very own style!
For over 20 years I have taught painting to thousands of adults in my own little art school and on location. I am very excited to bring this experience into our new online classroom for you now. Absolute beginners are warmly welcomed and advance students will be challenged!
What has been most exciting for me as a teacher - year after year – is watching each of my students embrace their own unique style. That is one of the main focal points in this class – along with some solid painting techniques and tons of inspiration! Like in my studio classes you can work at your own pace. You can do as much as you like – and when you like – in this class.
Inspiring exploration into the playful world of mixed media painting.
This 4-week course will give you so many methods and materials as tools – and inspiration- to gently draw out your own style of painting. In my studio classes I find the greatest joy in watching each student’s OWN style emerge and flow, and THAT is the focus of this course! The more go-to tools you have – the easier it becomes to find your self in your work. For over 20 years i have taught these methods and find great inspiration from each new student I meet! This class is a perfect for absolute beginners and more experienced artists alike.
An all new mixed media adventure with all new methods and materials!
Each day a new technique – a new process will emerge for you to try and to use in your own work! Every day you will be given a lesson which will open up new possibilities in your art work! Combined with a playful positive environment the class will work specifically on paper, with paper and through paper to expand your options while making art!
Four weeks of inspiring exploration into the playful world of working with paper!
