This acrylic painting online art course was inspired by my love of elephants and colorful mark making!
It is self-paced with lifetime access and perfect for any level no matter where you are in your creative journey.

My style of painting is a little bit abstract meets whimsy somewhere in the middle! I LOVE painting in layers full of mark-making and rich details. Add in some beautiful color and let the magic unfold. In this course I will show you how I build up my canvas along with some favorite tips and tricks I love to share.

This painting course is for all levels of creatives; either starting out or for those who are interested brushing up on some fun painting techniques. There is guided instruction throughout the journey through video instruction and lesson overviews.
