In this mixed media painting class you will learn a variety of techniques to help push your creativity and develop your style, especially when creating faces and whimsical animals.

You’ll learn my simple shape templates so that you can easily create whatever whimsical animal or character is unique to you and really make it your own.

That means we’ll be painting all sorts of whimsical characters and animals – like lions, bears, foxes, cats and so much more. We’ll also create watercolor portraits, add lettering, layer with collage, experiment with nontraditional art supplies and loosen up with paintings in our sketchbooks, so you can really find your artistic voice.

I’ll also take you with me on-location in videos and photos, so you can keep finding your own inspirations and strengthening your style.

In every video, I talk you through my painting process, telling you exactly what I am doing and why, sharing when I get frustrated with my art or when I reach an ugly stage and how I work through it, so you can easily overcome your own creative blocks.

Having fun, learning to let go and not being afraid to cover up my paintings have become essential to my creative process. I’ve fallen in love with mixed media painting and out of all of the painting techniques I’ve ever tried, the one thing I always return to is remembering to have fun with whatever it is I’m creating. This brings joy into the process, which inevitably gets infused into your artwork and always makes anyone who sees it smile.

My hope for you in this course is that these paintings and inspirations give you many places to quickly begin, so you can rekindle your creative spark, enjoy painting and create in a style that is unique to YOU.

There’s 2 year access to the classroom, so even if you don’t have a chance to get to it now, there’s always plenty of time.

You’ll also have forever access to our online creative community, where I’m always available to answer questions and give feedback, which means you’ll always have a place to connect and feel supported with your artistic journey.

“I was attracted to this course because I’m always looking for ways to create on the fly. Once I saw Juliette’s small travel kit I immediately put one together for myself and I was using all kinds of spare time to be creative. I found it so intriguing to push myself to use just the tools I had in new and creative ways. I could see that sometimes having all my materials was overwhelming and limiting the palette made it so much easier to get to work. Now I don’t go anywhere without my travel kit and some of the pieces I make are really inspired by my location. Taking this course opened up a whole new world of creating for me.”

Juliette shows how she works through creating a painting. What is especially great about this, besides the tips on technique, methods, and art materials, is that she shows how she goes through the ugly stages or the “this isn’t working” stages and pushes through. It is very inspirational (and comforting) to see a person who paints for a living also struggles with these issues. -Renata Wurster
Your classes opened my eyes to having more fun creating. I now am not scared of starting a project and I’m having a blast creating backgrounds! -Nina Marie
I am 64 and have always wanted to draw and paint. You show us all of the phases of the piece – the good, the bad, the ugly, and the finished wonderful face. Then we see the finished piece. Now when I struggle to get to the end of the process, I know that it’s okay to take a while to get there. – Louise “Beth” Rudolph
