new online classes are here!

I've been hard at work over here and I've got a fun lineup of new "micro" classes for winter and spring. Micro classes are small classes focussed on one topic. It's the perfect solution for those on a budget or those of you who have a busy schedule but are still looking for inspiration and an excuse to create.

The best part is that I created these classes for all ages so everything that I teach can be used with kids, adults or even both together. Each micro class is designed to teach you something very specific. Like the rest of my classes they pack a PUNCH! With demo videos, photos, prompts and downloads, each class is designed to give you a burst of inspiration and creativity.

You haven't lived as an artist until you have used your fingers and hands to make art! In this class we are throwing away our brushes and tools and using our hands. I'll be sharing a variety of my favorite tricks, tips and techniques for using our hands and fingers to create beautiful and expressive art.

Supplies are a big part of my creative process but I don't like to spend lots of money on them. Over time I have figured out all kinds of ways to cut corners, create on a budget and use everyday things in my art. In this class, I am sharing my favorite tips, techniques and secrets for hacking your supplies and pushing them as far as they can go!

Head on over to my shop HERE to view all of my class offerings!

There are many online workshops out there at different prices with different content. Back in 2009, when I decided to offer an online learning option, I set out to create a structure that is similar to taking a "live" class from me.  My mission is to provide an affordable class with a learning environment where you are watching lots of demos, learning techniques and then creating on your own art.

  • I have three different structures of online classes: 
Large Class: These classes are $50 and have 5 HUGE lessons that include videos, photos, written information, prompts and more. My large format classes dive deep into a variety of techniques, projects and information.
    Mini Class: My mini classes cost $30 and have 3 HUGE lessons that include videos, photos, written information, prompts and more.
    Micro Class: These classes cost $15 and have 1 HUGE lesson that includes videos, photos, written information, prompts and more.
    • My classes are a combination of video learning (with demos, techniques and me talking) and lots of photo steps outs of inspiration, techniques and process.
    • All classes are all filmed in my studio. Since 2009 I have been tweaking my gear and my process with the hope that video/photo content gets better and better. My #1 goal is to provide inspiring lessons and visuals that are easy to understand.
    • My classes do NOT have a required supply list. Instead I share the supplies that I like to use and then give you a variety of options and inspiration to use supplies that work best for your process and your budget.
    • All of my classes have unlimited access which means once you register you can create and access at any time and work at your own pace. Whenever I "release" a new class- I release each lesson "live". Many people enjoy working in this format, as the lessons are posted each week but once all information gets posted there is unlimited time to access everything. I have found that some people prefer to work along with the live format when I release a new class, while others will wait months until they have the time, money and the schedule to register for the class. Either way works- just know that once you are in- there is no deadline or pressure to create.

    Oh, my goodness (and SO much goodness)! Just discovered your site and have spent a good hour exploring, with so much left to see.
    Love the affordability of your classes, and that they are for all ages. Also enjoy the time and money saving tips that you share. As someone challenged with chronic illness/pain and various disabilities, those tips will help me find the inner and outer resources I need to continue creating!
    My 7 year old grandson shares my love of creating and I'm always looking for new projects to share with him.
    And much of what I find to share with my grandson can also be shared at work. I'm a Peer Support Specialist in the Behavioral Health field, and work with people with severe, persistent mental illness. I facilitate informal craft/art classes and a monthly micro-volunteering project that involves creating for various community projects and organizations (Meals on Wheels, assisted living facilities, etc)
    Your site is a treasure trove of inspiration, color and joy! Thank you so much for sharing it all with us!

    Hi there. This may be an out of place question but I didn't see a way to e-mail you. I purchased a class from you years ago. It was something about recycle and reuse. I lost the login info forever ago but was wanting to dive back into it. I did not see it on your "online classes" page. Is it gone forever or am I just really missing it? Thanks!
