Juliette Crane Serendipity

In this online art class, you’ll learn lessons that will help you overcome creative blocks and develop your own unique style.

I started my Serendipity courses in response to feedback I’d gotten from my students. So many had said they wanted to loosen up and develop their own style, but whenever they learn from another artist they feel like they’re just copying.

So in Serendipity 1 – Develop Your Style, I share how I strengthen and evolve my own style and take what I learn from classes and other inspirations in my every day and incorporate them all into my own paintings in a new and unique way.

With every project, I show you what inspired my painting and how I add those inspirations into each new piece. I also share my frustrations, mistakes and the tricks I use to move out of my comfort zone and strengthen my own style.

I’m always exploring new techniques, creating different characters and experimenting with so many different art supplies. So in this course I share all that I learn and paint the entire year.

We’ll complete more than twenty-four projects throughout the year. If you’re looking to try out new mixed media techniques and find your own artistic voice, this class is for you.

My hope for you is that these paintings and inspirations throughout the year will give you many places to begin, so you can get over creative blocks, have fun with your artwork and paint in a style that is unique to YOU.

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.

If you haven’t taken a class with me, it’s not a requirement to take this course. in this class i teach all new mixed media styles and techniques.


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

Sorry, no refunds once you have paid for this course.


When is this course?

Registration is now closed for this course. Please sign up to get emailed about early bird pricing when registration next opens.

How long do I have access to the course?

you’ll have access to the class for two years.

I’ve never taken an online course. How does it work?

This is an online painting class. once you register, you will receive the login and password needed to access the class’s private website. The class website consists of a private blog (where lessons are posted in the form of text, videos and photos), and a private Facebook group where I give feedback and answer questions.

What If I’ve taken one of your other online courses…will I still learn something new?

absolutely! all of the mixed media techniques, backgrounds and paintings are completely new. we’ll get more into painting and layering too. so if you’ve been wanting to take your animals, girls or owls a bit further, this is the class to take.

Do I have to complete every assignment?

no. but i know you’ll learn even more and have a ton of fun if you do. and, please, don’t feel rushed! you’ll have plenty of time.

Do I need to buy all of the supplies?

not at all. i only have a few supplies and brands that i recommend in particular because i’ve found they work best together. and you’ll only need a scanner or camera if you want to participate in our online gallery.

Can I share the workshop site, info and videos with a friend?

please keep in mind, i have really put all my heart into this workshop (and all of my paintings) and i’d really appreciate it if you didn’t share the links with anyone who has not paid for the workshop.

Do I need to know how to paint, draw, or be artistic?

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!

Can I get additional critique from you?

of course. i’ll be here to make comments and give feedback whenever you need it for a year.

What if I get behind?

Please don’t feel rushed. You have time to work at your own pace.

Can I share my work on my blog, FB page, instagram?

Absolutely! It’s always nice to spread the love and also mention me and this class or provide a link back to my website ( And if you do share your artwork, I’d love to know about it, so please tag me #juliettecrane

Of course. Just email me at

Can I use my ipad?

Yes, all of the videos and lessons are ipad compatible.

Can I sell originals or reproductions of the work created from this workshop and/or use the work for publication or submissions?

I kindly ask that you use good judgement when doing so. If you take what you learn from what I share, be sure to add your personality and make it into your own.

If you are entering your work for publication or any other submission, please be sure you have infused the artwork with your own original ideas.

If you’re selling originals or reproductions of something similar to one of my characters or class projects, please also mention my name and the class you’ve taken as your influences in either your shop listing or on social media and include a link to

I wanted to send you a sincere thank you for your beautiful artwork. I recently bought 3 of your owl prints on Etsy to put in our nursery and they look amazing. I really appreciate your work and I know our baby, coming any day now, will enjoy your beautiful, whimsical prints for years to come. – Carolyn Jacquin Bohlig
Love seeing all the layers up close and having original of your work after seeing you paint in class. It’s beautiful, thank you. – Beth Hutson
“Can’t tell you how much I learn from you explaining what you’re doing wrong and right while your painting. I feel so much more confident in my own art because of this, I am forgiving myself when I can’t paint a perfect picture, make a perfect doll or quilt on the first try. I feel I have gotten my money’s worth already and we have a year to go. What a fantastic class Serendipity is. Thank you for being REAL.” -Peggy McDevitt
