Can I take this class if I have no art experience?

Absolutely! I will lead you through step by step in all of the 8 lessons, and also provide you with tons of prompts for drawing, painting, and writing in the PDF.

Should I take this class if I am an experienced artist?

For an experienced artist, I would recommend this class if you are trying to get out of a creative rut by approaching art mindfully and with fresh eyes. But you might resonate more with a class like BIG ART

Is this class art therapy?

This class is not art therapy. However, I am a registered art therapist, and I use my understanding of psychology, mindfulness, and the artistic process to help students tune joyfully into the moment and engage in their art practice in deeper ways. We will not use this class to address your mental health concerns, but engaging in a mindful art practice, like any mindfulness or art practice, may have positive benefits for your overall sense of well-being.

Do I need basic computer knowledge to take the class?

Yes, this class is accessible on a page hosted on my website. The videos are all shot in HD and require a broadband connection for viewing the class.

Do I have lifetime access to the class?

Yes, as long as I have a website, you have access to the class!

How much are the supplies for this class?

Supplies are not included in the cost of the class. The price for the basic starting supplies are about $20 – $30.  You’ll need a watercolor journal, drawing pen, watercolor paint and brush.

Is this class live or self-paced?

This is a self-paced class with videos and a PDF. You can access them on the site whenever you want.
