Would you like to learn to paint – or learn to paint better?
You are in the right place!
You can be a part of…
Guided and focused hands-on assignments grow your skills faster.
- Lessons you can watch anytime. Convenient is what we do.
- Cheryl teaches art concepts such as colour mixing, composition, creating depth, and more. So much more than, for example, ‘how to paint a flower’ videos. Once you learn the concepts through hands on practice paintings, you can apply them to any subject you want.
- With a good foundation in painting concepts, you can develop your own unique painting style. No clones over here.
- Inspiration to keep the brush moving in an interactive supportive art community with The Painters Creative. We encourage each other to paint more often.
