Art Course “Foundations to Great Painting”

Coming Fall of 2022 – Foundations to Great Painting
with Cheryl O

for acrylic, watercolour, and oil*

Includes 13 downloadable teaching video

NOTE: No talent is needed. No previous art experience required.

Beginning (even brand new) and intermediate painters – a hands on experience to gain an excellent foundation in essential painting concepts plus best practices in paint handling.
*For the best learning experience, plan to work in just one paint type, although you will receive info for all 3 paint types.

What’s different about courses with Cheryl O? The teaching videos in each lesson focus on concepts, not simply step by step how to paint one painting. As you conquer the concepts, you can then learn to apply these to your own painting references. Hands on lessons designed to thoughtfully build one concept on another.
