Have we been learning art the wrong way?
The most exciting art comes from a painting practice that lets you paint with the same joyful abandon that you felt as a child. So why do so many art instructors teach dry, academic approaches to creating art?
The best art comes from a Heart-Led learning process!
I have learned that I learn best when I learn through play! When I attune myself to what is happening on the paper and respond intuitively. It’s an approach that is very immediate, and very fluid, and it’s so much fun. I get to paint for fun, and I don’t think that idea should only be for advanced artists!
Discouragement is the enemy:
We rob beginners of joy when we tell them garbage like, “Watercolor is the hardest medium,” and “You can’t fix mistakes in watercolor.” It’s like we are planning for failure! The goal isn't just to make good art but create a space of creative freedom that provides relief from stress and rest for the soul.
Learning watercolor in a way that puts the artist first:
I changed the way I teach beginners how to paint so that we could emphasize restorative creative mindset! Come with me for this series of lessons designed to help the heart-led beginning painter create a joyful, intuitive learning process. Yes, watercolor techniques will be taught, but our focus will start with the PROCESS, making painting a healing, inspiring place of self-care and acceptance. Join me in learning watercolor the heart-guided way!
Everyone gets to be an artist!
What if heart-led watercolor could be the starting point, instead of introduced as an intermediate transition toward a personal loose style?
It can be done! If you're yearning to paint in a loose, intuitive style, you can choose a path that encourages that kind of playful creativity from the very beginning of your watercolor journey. Let me guide you as you learn how to paint loose watercolors that flow from the heart.
