Juliette Crane Joy of Painting

In this online art class, you’ll learn simple tips and techniques to help you explore your creativity, develop style and learn to let go.

With every in-depth painting tutorial, I also share a quick, more playful project you can do in under 10 minutes with just a few inexpensive supplies right in your living room, so even if you don’t have a lot of time or space, this class will give you the tools and inspiration to get creative and play.

This class is the most comprehensive of all of my online courses. There are over twenty-one mixed media exercises and more than thirty projects to help you renew your creative expression.

In each video I share encouragement to work with what’s working and walk you through my own mistakes, so you can easily tap back into your own playfullness.

We’ll explore watercolors, paint luscious layers with our fingertips, add glitter and so much more.

This class is perfect if you’re looking to feel more free in your artwork and explore many different painting techniques and styles, especially for painting faces

There’s also two year access to the classroom and forever access to our private, supportive community to be sure there is plenty of time to explore, connect and paint.

My hope for you in The Joy Of Painting, is that you connect more deeply to the things that bring you joy, so you can reignite your creative spark, let it all flow with no right or wrong and create from a place that is authentic and unique to YOU.

“I loved the class! So many videos and Juliette’s helpful commentary and guidance through the whole process. It really helped me loosen up while experimenting with many different media and techniques. Other classes I’ve taken just speed edit through the most important parts, while Juliette takes the time to explain what motivates her artistic process. That, for me, is the value of a class.”

This course includes all new paintings, mixed media and background techniques. so if you’ve already taken another class with me, this will take everything a lot further and give you so many new characters and ways to paint. I’ll also share more layers and techniques for enhancing what you learned to paint in my others classes.


I design my courses with busy people in mind, so it’s easy for you to focus on what you’d really like to learn when you have the time.

The lessons are designed to make creating fun, easy and completely un-intimidating. I’m a big believer in taking the parts you love most and running with them so you enjoy getting creative. And, if you don’t have the time, there’s no need to go through everything all at once.

There’s a private facebook group for students to connect, share, support and learn from each other. All in an encouraging and friendly environment that you can enjoy right from home. I’m also always in the group – available to answer your questions and provide feedback.

You don’t need any painting experience or expensive art supplies to take these classes-all you really need are a few paints and brushes (your hands work just fine) and an openness to play.

Once you register, you’ll receive an email with the class log-in details. If you don’t find the email in your inbox after 48 hours, please contact Brian at

this workshop is for anyone and everyone. whether you haven’t painted since you were in kindergarten or if you’re an avid crafter or artist looking to learn new techniques, this class is for you. my intention is to get a fabulous group together and share with you a place to begin so you’re creativity can wander in an encouraging environment.

Do I have to post my work to the private facebook group?

of course not. but i really love looking at everyone’s work and seeing just what makes each piece different. i know others do too. this is a totally private, safe, positive and encouraging group. and i wouldn’t have it any other way!

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
I learn best when I see you paint while you give information as to why your painting is working or is in need of correction. The way you work through your corrections gives me insight into my own issues and encourages me to keep going. Your videos are fun, light, colorful and always a pleasure to watch. Because of you, I enjoy painting and will try anything. – Peggy Mcdevitt
“Starting was a big milestone for me but once I did it became my savior! I’d say that if anyone out there is looking for an online class that gets you just ‘doing’ instead of ‘thinking’ this is the one for you. At last I’ve found the style of art that I absolutely love and even though I can’t draw for peanuts I’ve been happy with the pieces that I’ve created – thanks to the amazing guidance of Juliette who has the most lovely teaching style.”
– Stephanie Banks
