Cheryl O Art – Online Courses

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.

  • People learn faster with lessons you can watch anytime. Need to have something repeated? Easy. Convenient is what we do.
  • You are not alone, your instructor is very accessible. Your paintings and your questions can be posted into the private course platform anytime.
  • 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 concepts, you can develop your own unique painting style. No clones over here.
  • Encouragement to keep the brush moving in an interactive supportive art community.
