Who is this online course for?

This is the ultimate online course for anyone who wants reclaim their creativity, and discover a new sense of calm in life. Learn how to paint with confidence as a complete beginner across both watercolour and acrylic paint.

After over twenty years of experience as an artist, I want to save you the fifteen years plus that I have been learning and teaching myself to paint in both mediums across a twelve week course. I want to fast track your knowledge, build your confidence and show you everything I know about painting. What materials to buy, where to spend money and where to save; as well as how to use them.

I'll guide you through every step of each lesson on video, providing you with my exact drawing templates. I'll also show you how to fix mistakes along the way! All techniques in the course can relate to any subject but my focus is definitely on fashion and still life.
Whether art is your dream hobby and creative meditation; or your career; this is the course I wish existed when I started out as a painter.

• Video learning modules, painted out step by step
• Drawing templates (fashion figures, scenes and still life objects)

• Furthering your joy for painting, whether art for you is your hobby or career.
