What students say
"I think the personal messages are brilliant! It is like you are sitting next to me in one of your classes. You have provided me with focused, personal and private feedback that I can easily go back to. where I can re-watch when I need to recall your feedback." Shelby
"This has opened up a whole new world for me, yesterday's session drove home the point of how to turn a pleasant photo into a dramatic subject that truly tells a story. If I learn nothing else in the class (but I will 🤗), that lesson alone was worth the price of admission! A tangible AHA moment for me. Thanks for the joy" Sue Warnock
"Love, love, love this personal response." Sue Warnock
"Thank you so much. It is amazing the dedication you gave to each of us!" Camelia Ilie

Your artistic style is what makes your work feel like you, it's essentially what distinguishes you from other artists and I'm sure you have noticed that throughout history all the greatest artists had styles that were distinct and unique. This course is designed for you to discover your personal creativity, unique painting style, and what sets you apart from everyone else, and bring you through the process to complete finished painting.
Submit up to three photographs of any kind (florals, landscapes etc.) then in a live meeting we will discuss your composition and approach, then go back to your studio to paint. After giving you enough time we'll meet again to review what you have done and problem solve. Then return to your studio to complete your painting. For those that are really speedy, within the course period you can continue to paint one of the other reviewed compositions to do another painting.
