"The more you paint the more confidence you build."

EMBRACE CREATIVITY. ELEVATE INSPIRATIONS.
CREATE BEAUTY.



With painting, like anything else, we only get better with practice. I created projects you can do over and over, while always arriving at a different result. I know the hardest part, for many of my students, is where to start and what to paint? I am here to support and guide you as you overcome this obstacle, and any others that may arise during your creative journey, by giving you different projects and teaching you techniques along the way.

There is something distinct and different to learn with every course, making every course a unique project. Painting is full of problem solving, it is impossible to learn all of them within one project, even if you do that project 50 times. A different composition, palette, brushes, and surface/size of surface (paper, canvas, wood, board) all offer a variety of challenges to navigate and integrate into the beauty of the creative process. The courses are designed to help guide you from start to finish building your confidence so, in time you can being to start on your own creative force and create a painting from within.

Course 1. Learn to paint Michelle's "Rolling Tomatoes"

Create a vibrant acrylic painting in fun juicy colours
with suggested materials and simple instruction.

Perfect for those looking to spark creativity, this mini project is easy to follow, and facilitates brush manipulation and colour building with a minimal palette. With step-by- step guidance, you'll create the illusion of movement through repetition of lines and shapes, and partial images caught in a moment. The project allows YOU, the artist, to play with bold colour; learning how to achieve and amplify volume within a shape by dramatically adding light to a darker coloured form. Painting quickly and moving your brush about the canvas prompts you to embrace free and relaxed movements ensuring you don't overwork or lose focus on your piece. Allowing you to release your creativity by slowing down your conscious mind, embracing this refreshing change from our day to day lives you will find yourself feeling inspired, challenged, and artistically rejuvenated.

Course 2. "Personal Landscape"


Navigate your inner personal landscape, through the process of creating a warm abstract landscape specific to you.

Using the idea of sedimentary rock, with all its layers as an example, this project investigates metaphorical imagery as it relates specifically to you. We all have layers of history, memories and experiences that together define us. This project is designed to take you on a journey of self to find the beauty in your own personal landscape. You will learn to: understand the importance of using paint both transparently as well as opaquely, be focused and in the ‘zone’ for painting, narrow the divide between the visceral and the cerebral through writing to enhance your painting, master techniques like: scumbling, resist, and masking and more, and release and clarify memories and experiences leaving you feeling calm and empowered.

Course 3. "The Subtleties of Grey""

A full and complete introduction to achieving values
in grey while creating a stylized medieval village scene.

Greys, a neutral colour, improve a painting. Acting as a resting spot for the eye, neutral colours can hold an entire mess of other colours together like glue. This course will teach you to: use less colour in your painting, create shadow by juxtaposing shades of grey, achieve distance within your painting, establish order (that you sometimes have to destroy, in this painting we paint over much of the area with paynes grey and scrape it around with a palette knife) and understand and appreciate value in subtleties. Ultimately, you will create a stylized street of a town as you expand your knowledge of what grey can be and do in your paintings.
