Gathering Beauty | A Still Life Painting Online Course Begins on Monday

***Gathering Beauty with Wendy Brightbill begins on Monday***

 

We have been hoping for a course just like this for awhile.

We are so lucky to have Wendy Brightibill sharing her gifts again with us and this time she is teaching Gathering Beauty | A Study in Still Life Painting.

 

A peek into Gathering Beauty by Wendy Brightbill…

With Spring right around the corner, I am looking forward to the longer days and new life. I often feel a surge of creativity around this time of the year. There is something about the warm sunshine and gentle breezes that calls me to pick up my paintbrush and paint with abandon. With the promise of new life and all things green, I find myself drawn to vibrant color and painting flowers in my artwork. I have this need to gather and document all the beauty around me.

In this course, we will be looking for quiet moments of beauty to document and capture in our creative practice. We will spend time gathering all things beautiful and letting that spill out onto our canvases and paper. I will show you some of my favorite tips for creating a beautiful and unique still life composition. We will explore still life sketching on paper and in art journals. We will play with different mediums to create one of kind paintings and drawings. We will learn how to look with new eyes and really study every day moments. I will share with you all of my favorite techniques for painting floral still life pieces. We will focus on finding our own creative voice and how to express that on canvas.

You can watch the course trailer below:

The registration price is $48 for this 4+ hour online course is with lifetime* access.  The course will begin on April 24, 2017.

Last Day For The Early Registration Price {Making Art Sing}

One of the most popular classes on our creative network last year was Julie Johnson’s Scribble Art!

Julie is a born teacher and she provides rich content full of technique, inspiration and encouragement.

Today is the LAST day for the early registration price of her follow up to Scribble Art...

Making Art Sing | Values, Shapes and Lines

This is a one week course that will compliment and expand on her very popular online course Scribble Art! You do not have to take her first course to take Making Art Sing.

***

In Julie’s words about her newest online workshop…

Making art sing is finding a melody that is unique to each one of us in our art.

We all have our own voice.

It’s time to find the confidence in the gracefulness of your lines and notes of yummy moments that turn into our focal points along with the success of values.

We will be using simple materials in order to really see the form and study the movement of the head and body and street scene, hands, and intuitive drawing. Most materials you probably already own, pencil, pen, stabilo marks-all pencil, charcoal, ink, gesso, eraser, paintbrush, q-tips, Art journal, Bristol paper. Add a couple new materials; vellum (is a versatile 90lb multi-purpose paper, semi transparent using the tooth side we will use ink and charcoal) and inktense pencils (waterbased) and that is all we need to make art that sings with your voice!!!

Looking forward to hearing all the different tones as we study values.

A peek into the rich course content

This is the LAST day for the early registration price for this one week, lifetime* access course of $29.98. This course will begin on February 15, 2016.

Classical Figure Painting |Painting figures in the style of the Old Masters|

Angie Redhead has a brand new course on our creative network and registration has just opened!

Join Angie for a one week online course all about painting figures in the style of the Old Masters.

Come and read a little more about Classical Figure Painting

The Renaissance period is my most favorite time in art. In part due to advances in materials, renewed interest in the classics and availability of patrons, artists experienced a rebirth which
pushed their art to new depths. Figure painting was a common theme in this era and was a way to express stories of the past and present.

During this one week online class, we will create a group figure painting on canvas. I will take you through the process I’ve used when painting figures for murals, except in a smaller scale.

This class will cover: reference material resources, surface prep, sketching a classical figure outline, composition, the underpainting and painting the overlayers.

Please note that nude figure photos will be referenced online, and then they will be drawn and
painted.

To read more or to register for the early registration price of $29.99 click  HERE.

This course will begin on September 1, 2015 and you will have LIFETIME ACCESS* to the videos.

Brand New Online Course For Summer!

 

I have to tell you the backstory of how our newest course can to fruition.  Can you imagine seeing an artist making gorgeous art and then secretly leaving it in the woods for others to find, enjoy and even take?  A story started to weave its way into my world of creating and letting go.  A story of creating, blessing, walking away and then creating all over again.  This creative story made me want to make art for all new reasons.  This also encouraged me to ask her to share her thoughts and process with all of you!
Welcome to the brand new online course Nature’s Canvas {painting faces on sticks, branches and driftwood}.  This course is being taught by artist Tania Bain and will begin on June 8th.   The perfect course to inspire your creating this summer and weave your own story of creating and letting go.

If you like the crunch of leaves underfoot {peek into Woodland Girls}

It is way past my bedtime but I couldn’t go to bed without sharing my brand new art course that begins tomorrow (officially today).

Fall is my favorite time of the year because of the crispness in the air, the crunch of the leaves under foot, the bending of the golden grasses and the colors that are changing all around me.

Each fall I find a heightened sense of creativity and a pull into my studio unlike any other time of the year.

I think it is the gathering that fall brings.

Fall brings people around your table, leaves collected on walks, feathers pinned down in your journal, pine cones piled in a bowl on your table and long walks where your thoughts are more likely to wander.

Fall also brings me outside more to create and encourages my love of art with my love of nature.

Welcome to Woodland Girls {and other natural curiosities}! 

Below you will see a glimpse into the mini course content.

This course is a one week course that is instantly available.

The course will be instantly available on October 27th and the content will be available for one year.

The registration price is $30

I would love for you to hear what some of the students from the first course have said about the Masters course…

“In all my years as an artist, I have never had a course that stretched and grew me so much. Not only has my art taken off in so many exciting ways, but I was blessed with friendship and support I never expected. Thanks for all that you do. I am so looking forward to part two!”

-Renee

“The Studying the Masters class inspired me to look deeper into my own art process. The format where I was able to find out more about the artist’s process and their techniques captured my attention. The presenting artists were quality women whose own art process gave me confidence to keep going. I look forward to the next class.”

-Linda

“This course is one of the best I have taken in that it introduced me to several different modern day artists. In watching how they studied under some masters, I became a student of, not one, but TWO artists each week, some of whom I feel a real resonance with!! I feel as though I am finding more of my artistic voice as a result of this class, and that is pretty exciting!! Thanks so much Jeanne for helping me take another step closer to my dream! ”

-Silvia

“The best class ever no matter your talent level…seeing the instructors paint right along in  “their” style of painting trying to get close to what a Master created was so enlightening since each had awesome talent but different ways to get the final results that they wanted! We were in their studio with there favorite supplies, magic!”

-Tari
