I’m thrilled that I’ve been invited by Olga Furman for the third year to be a guest teacher on the year-long online art class Paint Your Heart and Soul 2022.
At the end of the year you’ll be comfortable to work with a variety of mediums, find your artistic voice if you are new to art, or advance and enrich your style if you are an experienced artist.
Over 30 amazing artists instructors are participating in this course! During the lessons, instructors will demonstrate their techniques and share their knowledge, experience, tips and tricks with the students.
The main focus is, but is not limited to painting portraits, and figures in different styles and mediums.
You will not only learn, but also be encouraged to share your progress and interact with instructors and students in a closed FB group, or/and through a special hashtag on Instagram.
Our mission is not only to offer great quality lessons for an affordable price, but also to provide a safe and supporting community.
In addition to the lessons and the community, we invited a certified life coach to help artists with a lack of confidence or have hit the ‘artist block’ and to keep motivation up. Our certified life coach is also a professional artist. How amazing is that!?!
This course is great for everyone who is looking to learn, explore, get inspired and find your own style or to add on to it! Beginners are welcome!
The course starts in January 2022 but the registration is now open and I am giving away a free spot so keep on reading!
You will get at least 50 downloadable video lessons with supporting PDF documents. Each week you will receive one lesson, starting on January 2022. Each teacher will bring you one mini lesson and one in depth lesson in their unique style.
I really love these collaborative courses because it is the best way to gather a lot of different tips and techniques to grow as an artist. Another big advantage is that it is a great value for your money. And if you are one of the first 500 customers to register for the course you can purchase it for the early bird price of $99 and save $70 from the regular price of $169, so don’t miss out because the discounted spots are selling out super quickly!
You will also get access to a Facebook group that will be your virtual classroom where you can show off your lessons, ask for advice and interact with the other students. I always love how supportive everyone is, it is a safe and lovely room. Don’t forget to say hi there, if you like, so we will be getting to know each other.
I really love the lineup of the teachers this year and I’m so honoured to be a part of it. Check out all the gorgeous styles they will be teaching in the photo above!
I am also very proud of our students from previous years. Many of them are so glad they joined our course and describe Paint Your Heart and Soul as “I’ve learned so much and gained so much confidence in my art practice“, “I can highly recommend this course” and “I’m loving this course and look forward to it each week!“.
what will i be teaching?
In my mini lesson we will focus on drawing and painting a hand in acrylics. Many artists shy away from drawing and painting hands. In my lesson I hope to show you that you don’t have to be afraid and how you can achieve a beautiful hand in proportion.
For my main lesson we will be painting a portrait of a dark skinned woman in oils by using a reference photo. We’ll use her beautiful hair as a night sky and paint clouds and stars in it.
We will be trying to achieve likeness in the drawing, and use complimentary colours to achieve beautiful skin colours.
Because we are working with oil paints I will inform you about the cool and warm properties of the paints, which does not exist with acrylics.
We will focus on values and shapes of the portrait.
I will show you how I mix the paint and guide you through the process!
