Grow Your Art Skills

What gets in the way of growing your art skills?

1. Sometimes life gets in the way. You have the paint but somehow painting is not happening. Time slips by and good intentions do too.

2. You don’t know where to start or what to focus on to grow your art. You can spend hours online watching free art how to videos. Some are good, some not so much, but there may be a better way to use your time. And to get the brush moving.

3. Artists can be a lonely bunch, and even more right now, but it doesn’t have to be that way. How to find a friendly fellowship with others who also want to paint more often and grow their art too?


Guidance to Paint More Often:

With clear guidance to help you focus on key concepts, your painting time will have purpose – reasons to be eager to get that brush moving. Plus, you can post your practice pieces and get feedback about it – a huge motivator for many and fun too. That said, it is also a “guilt free zone” meaning you don’t have to post your work if you don’t want to. There is flexibility to suit you and what works best for your unique learning style. The lessons presented are both very practical and creative, and the main emphasis is, just do them!

Convenience in Spades:

The course site is open 24/7. Are you a night owl? Go to the site and watch the lessons at 2 a.m. if you like. Was the concept presented a new and challenging one for you? Watch the lesson video as many times as you want to. Pause and take notes. Re-watch just the precise part of lesson that you need to. Learning doesn’t get much more convenient and easy to focus on. And how is this different than buying any pre-recorded art lesson? Read on…

Your Instructor is There for You:

When you have questions, you can type them into the website and Cheryl or her team will help you. Often other members will have helpful suggestions too that they can comment below your work when you post it. You can also attend one of the regular Zoom Get Togethers with the instructor and ask your questions there. You are not in this alone!  And if you can’t make the Zoom session? Submit your question ahead and the Zoom audio recording will be posted in the site the next day for you to listen to at a time that is convenient for you.

Paint with Focus:

Every course starts with key concepts and then builds on them. You can grow your art skills in a logical way instead of haphazardly. Beginners: There will be some lessons and a course available for you – aiming for fall of 2021. Beginners and Intermediate Painters – “Drawing for Painters Plus a Splash of Colour” is a great way to enhance your paintings by growing your drawing skills. Line and wash tips are included in that course too. Lots of other courses are in the works!

Enjoy an Art Fellowship:

The interaction between members in any of my art venues is wonderful! Artists are supportive and encouraging folks at heart, and you can enjoy new art friendships too! Intermediate painters can become a part of an annual art membership called The Painters Creative. It’s a much more relaxed pace than the courses. There are monthly themes and weekly fun challenges and lots of interactions among members. The Painters Creative only comes open for new members to join a few times per year. Receiving the Tuesday art newsletters will ensure that you don’t miss that opportunity.


Gain access to all the latest course information, know when the membership comes open again, plus free art how to tips and techniques, sometimes a peak behind the curtain of an artist’s life, fun quotes, and more.

I’m Approachable

Send me an email, , if you have questions about courses or the membership. My goal is to have my team or myself reply within 48 hours. If you don’t hear from back, please try again, because emails sometime get lost in cyberspace.




I paint, I teach, life is good.
