Hi, I'm so glad you are here

I’m Andrea Garvey – artist, teacher, encourager, and believer in our creative superpower.

My mission throughout this art journey is to encourage and gently guide as many people as I can through the processes and layers of making art while tapping into the energy of creating joy.

It's quite a journey I'm on, and I am excited to share it with you! Over the past few years, I found out that what really lights me up inside IS sharing. When I first started to walk out my idea of an art career the vision of it was very different than it is now. 

I thought it would be all about art galleries, and selling my paintings, but it's become so much more than that since I decided to start teaching what I know. The pandemic can do that. Have you pause and maybe change a few things around - see what people need. 

From daily Facebook lives when we were all housebound, to creating big art online courses, teaching remotely on Zoom, growing a social media presence, and of course creating an incredible Creative Community. It's been a wild couple of years since I made this big shift, my heart has been filled up and I know what my purpose is. Thank you for joining me!

Looking for a creative boost? Try my classes from acrylics to watercolor to mixed media. 

I really believe we are ALL creative in some way. I think it's our superpower, our special cape we wear, and wow has it helped me throughout the years. One of my missions in all the art courses I teach is to encourage and gently guide you through the processes and layers of creating beautiful art. 

There are no strict rules, it's mostly about exploring and playing, trying new things, and pushing boundaries so we can grow as creatives. I teach everything I know - an open book that loves to share!

Just getting started? How about a class on me!

I take art classes to either get me out of a creative rut, learn a new technique, or just get inspired by someone else's artistic ideas. I have a few super fun, free classes in hopes of getting other people to dust off that superpower cape (tucked in with all those art supplies!) and see how a little art can ignite that magic spark.

Trust me on this one, it always works!

Want to join a great art community?
Live chats, inspiration, and encouragement
from my home to yours.

Building my Facebook Creative Community in the summer of 2020 was one of the silver linings of that year for me. This group started with a handful of people in the beginning (thank you to my mom and her friends for showing up!), I fumbled around with equipment to do daily live demos, and we inspired each other through a rough patch for many people.

 

This amazing creative community now has over 3000 members! I still host Lives (weekly), and anyone can share their art and get inspired on a daily basis. The group is private (yay for no trolling!), but creative minds are always welcome to join.
