With travel not happening at this time, I am grateful for wonderful photo references to paint from. I do find that painting from these brings back lovely memories and really gives me the sensation of being there again. Such a nice reprieve from the restrictions of our current world.

Yesterday I was so delighted to welcome over 70 members into the new art group “Keep the Brush Moving”. Unfortunately registration is now closed but if you missed out – no worries. This is simply a 2 month Beta founding group. We will be taking most of July and August off and registration will open again in August for a September start up. All that to say, you will be able to join again at some point. More information here: All That Greenness
First let me tell you about Pam. Pam had told me quite emphatically, “I will never take an online course.” Then isolation hit when we were halfway through the recent Collage Class and I switched it to online. Pam said she would “give it a try.” After a couple of weeks, Pam was obviously enjoying it all including our Zoom sessions. And when I put the word out about an online art membership, she was one of the first to sign up. Don’t let your fear of the unknown with online learning hold you back. (Note: Membership is now closed. Next opportunity to sign up will be August 2020, for a membership starting September 2020.)
I have an idea. What about a membership? To encourage each other to paint. Naturally there will be a teaching component too – to help your art to grow. (Update: 17 May 20 – the current membership is now closed. Next opportunity to sign up will happen in August 2020, for a membership starting September 2020.)
“Just Another Pink Elephant” – collage by Cheryl O . So proud of my students from the recent collage class. 4 of the 8 weeks were done online. Check out their fabulous paintings here: Student Collages – Fantastic!
I am more than a little excited to get started making some online classes. These will be 5 week classes with a new painting to work through each week. I will be busy making videos over the next few weeks. Sign up for my art newsletters to be among the first to know when these go live. More information here: The Latest About Online Courses.

I have just purchased Teachable as a platform for my next online courses. This is what I hope to do – learn Teachable and then post a 4 week online art course on a different topic. (Yet to be chosen.) Thank you for your patience as I get this together. Watch your art newsletters for when it is ready to go!
