An 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.

The class is held for six weeks with with weekly videos, daily posts, assignments, discussions, tips and tricks. The classroom is open till Dec 31, 2017 for you to absorb all the information.

Join me in the studio for my painting class that helps develop YOUR own style. We will do this together by understanding concrete painting techniques, creative expression and choosing materials as well as:

  • Understanding how color works
  • Finding joy in your own marks
  • Choosing the right tools
  • Experimental processes to try
  • How to put a painting together
  • Different approaches to painting
  • Unleashing your own style
  • Direct feedback on each student’s work directly from the instructor for the duration of the class
  • Weekly  video lesson instruction, inspiration, and mini videos
  • Techniques, processes and expansions from my own lessons in the Art Lab books (yes, they are for children, but the principals are the same!)
  • My 20 years of teaching thousands of adults painting, printmaking, mixed media and ceramics in my own school and on location.

Raves!

"Let's Paint was not only a welcome break in my busy week, each week, but Susan's instruction was fantastic. She emphasized painting fundamentals that I really needed - like color mixing, and appreciation for line and shape - but also allowed for individuality and creativity. I wasn't worried about making things perfect - because as she says, you can always try something and if you end up hating it, you can paint over it. Since the class, I've been painting nearly every day! As a lifelong "maker of things" it felt good to finally take a real painting class." - Katy Solsky
