Creative Girl: The Land of Light and Shadows {last days for early registration and a giveaway}

I am so thrilled with the response to Danielle Donaldson’s new online art class Creative Girl: The Land of Light and Shadows.

Once you see Danielle’s work you just want to study it and understand the layers and techniques that she uses.

Lucky us that we get to learn from her!

Here is a peek into what her course will be about…

Once upon a time there was a tiny-ish girl who loved to cut, draw, and paint. She saw things in the sunshine and shadows that other people never seemed to notice. She bounced all that wonderfulness around inside her noggin for a bit, and out popped magical pieces of art that told her stories when words couldn’t.

Danielle Donaldson is that girl, and guess what? She wants to share a part of her creativeSTORY with you. YES YOU!

The Land of Light and Shadow is a one week course with Danielle (aka creativeGIRL) that will inspire you to add depth to your work by using a bunch of super fun techniques. You’ll play with all sorts of mediums including pencil and pen work, watercolors, acrylics and patterned paper creating yummy layers. And just when you think you are done, you’ll practice adding highlights and tucking in shadows here and there to make your art sparkle. Sounds awesome, right?

Please join Danielle the week of April 28th for a romp with watercolors and white pens and all sorts of creative shenanigans into The Land of Light and Shadows.

This is a one week class with everything instantly available on April 28th!


The course has an early registration price of $28.  After April 1st the price goes to $34


This course is available for one full year.


I wanted to do a fun giveaway to celebrate Danielle’s first solo online class and also to remind you that there are only days left to get the early registration price.

Danielle wanted to give one of you an original painting and I want to give one of you a box full of Danielle’s favorite art supplies!


How about that giveaway?

Danielle is giving away one of her original watercolor paintings valued at $70.00.

I am giving away Danielle’s favorite art supplies valued at $130.00

  232. I too have already registered for the class and I’m so looking forward to it. The are 2 supplies I must have. 1) I like to use Black Gesso for -all- of my black paint. I like how truly matte it is and I feel it gives my paintings a certain surreal depth. Like the black of the ocean when light is filtered out. And the 2nd is a plain old pencil. My work isn’t finished if I haven’t scribbled some pencil on it somewhere. It’s like putting on perfume last.

  233. I’ve also pinned this to my Pinterest board, “Spark” and you can find me at

Yay for Danielle so wonderful and so humbled to be part of your class.

    I signed up for the class and am very excited. The one art supply I cant live without would definately be my pencil.

  258. I am a collector of Danielle’s work. Hers are among the first pieces that are ooh’ed over when we have guests to our home. Her color, originality and creativity are what I admire most. The art supply I simply cannot live without is COURAGE. The courage to express myself, to recognize that only I can make my art, and the courage to keep going when someone says “I just don’t get your art”. Thank you Danielle and Jeanne for this opportunity. I can’t wait to get started!!

  259. Heather Drake commented:
