Online Art Courses – are amazing!

People learn faster. With recorded lessons, students can watch them anytime they want. Up in the middle of the night? Your lessons are there. Need to have something repeated? Easy. Watch the video lesson as many times as you want to. Convenience is a big part of what we do here.

Plus – it’s interactive! You are not in this alone, your instructor is accessible. In courses there are Zooms with Cheryl for getting all your questions answered. Guided and focused practice can increase both your painting skills and your enjoyment in painting.

People make new art friends on our website on Mighty Networks. That means you can post your art work (if you want) and comment on the work of others. Be assured – artists are an encouraging bunch. In my courses and painting membership we consistently cheer each other on.

No need for perfection – you are here to learn and no one expects your paintings to be perfect! Heck no. This is a journey shared and NOT a competition.

Really, I could not have imagined how well this works. I love it. And, nice bonus, no more lugging heavy paints to class, or fussing about the weather.

Beginners: Have you always wanted to explore painting but don’t know how to start? This is a friendly place with lessons designed to be fun, creative. Grow your skills in hands on lessons with focused goals.

Intermediate Painters: There are lots of different creative options for you to enjoy while growing your art skills.

Intermediate & Advanced Painters: something is in the works just for you.

Here’s the scoop for everyone…
