"Juliette’s class structure is simple, easy to follow and visually pretty. I was pleasantly surprised when on week 2, I totally got into painting and letting go....somewhat. If you want to take a fun online class, I would totally recommend hers." -Julie Nutting
"I appreciate the growth that I have experienced from taking this e-course. I really feel like it has helped me learn to love the process, good and not so good. Juliette, was wonderful at awnsering my questions right away. She gave me great tips for the times when I was feeling stuck, to move forward! I would recommend this course to anyone!!" -Christy Nimeh
"How to Paint an Owl could easily be called "How to Find Your Passion!" I believe Juliette is a very intuitive artist - her work just flows from her soul. But she shares her thoughts, her story, her process in such a way that it causes you to reflect on your own life, and question: What is my truth? What is my story? And she does this while so generously sharing all her tips and tricks! I learnt so much in this class! I loved the fact that there was a PDF too - thanks!" - Kate Daniel.
"I absolutely loved your class. Loved it. I love the owls that I painted and the process that I went through painting them. I learned so much, and really was able to listen to my own heart in the process. It was a fantastic experience and I would recommend it to anyone who loves to paint!" - Jill Locke.
"Juliette Crane class is very brave, and trusting - putting her whole process out there, generously sharing her own inspirations, and creative thinking, with step by step photos and videos of how she got from point A to point Z (there are many steps in between!)." - Wendy Ramos
"I LOVED it. It is a great class for anyone--beginners to advanced artists. I learned so much and had no idea how much FUN this was going to be when I signed up!" -Carrie.
"Juliette, you put so much into it and I received so much... as much as I did at the Art and Soul retreat, and I so enjoyed the way you presented it all and I was able to do this with the privacy of my home, at my own pace with working full time. I looked forward to the blog, the emails and of course the videos! I received more than I ever thought possible, and I am just as inspired from having taken your course as driving and being in a creative environment for three days!" -Donna.

"This class has inspired me so much. The possibilities are endless. You have given me the tools to help me develop my creativity and the confidence to continue. You have taught me so much and I thank you from the bottom of my heart. I would highly recommend this course to anyone who wishes to develop their artistic abilities. Thank you very much Juliette." -Denise.
"With the e-course I've set up a studio space in my home for the first time, I plan to keep using too. The class has been a true catalyst for the artist within!...It was so much more than what I expected, hard to even put into words. I'll be writing about it in my brand new blog!" -Peg.
"Thank you for all the wonderful inspiration and guidance you have given me over the last 4 weeks. I have not done much painting before and have always joked that my 8 year old can draw better stick-men than me, so I didn't think I was much of an artist but have always felt the creative urge!! You have shown me that I do have a "little" artist in me - THANK YOU! I will always remember the lessons you have taught me and that there are no mistakes - only things that can be changed...There is no reason to be scared of the paint!! " -Sharron.
"Juliette, thank you for a fantastic few weeks!!!! Thank you for sharing as I have learnt so much and have just LOVED creating my owl creations." -Jodi.
"It is an amazing class, the techniques are kind of addicting. The class offers a weekly step by step process and with each step a background, then character, then environment emerges. It has been such a rewarding experience." -Renee.
"Loved it all. Lots of information and spread out in a really easy way to follow. Was really easy for a complete beginner like me to pick up my supplies and just dive in."
"It was such a lovely experience and I'm so pleased with how my owls turned out. I'm addicted to owls now and am doodling them everywhere. I learned SO much about painting going through the course, and I loved how there was absolutely no pressure. It was so easy to correct mistakes I'd made or integrate them in a new way, and I really appreciated how forgiving the whole process was. It flew by so quickly, and I'll miss checking the blog for the updates throughout the week. I had such a great time. Thanks so much."
"this has been by far the most fun, happiest class that I have myself have ever taken and se easy to draw an owl, wow. I want more. I really can draw an owl."
"Do you know when you meet someone no matter for how brief, you may not even talk to them....but something connects and you know the meeting just touches you on a deeper, soul level...well for me Juliette you have been one of those people....now I know we haven't met in person but through your e-course and the lovely caring and nurturing approach of your course I have just been SO inspired! Perhaps a mixture of you and owl magic...who knows but I have changed. I wake up wanting to create, not worry about how it will turn out but just create, I am sketching and dreaming... colour dreams , not black and white, I am making more baskets ( and half to laugh- some nest inspired ones too) .....I even have a huge canvas transforming with a gathering of owls on.....I truly wish you the very best for all that you do and that many of your wishes and dreams come true...though I know with all my heart they will ...as for some one who shares so deeply with others they most certainly will."
"I liked that there was no pressure to participate in discussion but there was the option. I loved your videos (and the music!) and you have such an encouraging voice as a teacher- even online! You share such detail and so much of your own artistic process that it's educational and inspiring. I thought the course was well-paced. I personally fell behind week 3 but I am pretty sure that it's because I got stuck with the eyes- I liked my paintings so much at that point that I was (and still am as I write this) afraid to mess them up! I know that as I look back again at the evolution of your lovely paintings that I will eventually work through my own fear! Thank you so much, Juliette. I have participated in a few online classes- never an art class though!- and your course was very much worth it!"
"How to Paint an Owl was even better than I imagined. I've taken many online art classes, and this is by far one of my favorites. Juliette set a wonderful pace for the class--it was not overwhelming and for the first time I did not fall behind in an online art class. The videos were extremely helpful, but the best part for me was how Juliette shared her technique in a simple fashion that was easy and fun to do with pleasing results. After she explained the simple steps, I was able to paint an owl. And because it was easy, it was FUN and not frustrating. This is the most fun I think I've ever had painting. I think it was the simple formula that Juliette gave you to start every painting. It took the hard part out of it, and I was able to dive right into the fun part and enjoy the process. In some classes I've taken, some of my paintings just don't seem to work out the way I want. This was not the case in this class. I loved every painting I did, and I attribute that to Juliette's teaching ability and organizational skills. I loved how the class was broken down into 3 sections each week--technique, inspiration and life as an artist. I liked the predictability of each week (knowing the format) and looked forward to her sharing inspiration and her experience as an artist while I worked on my paintings all week. Juliette, I don't know how you put this together so perfectly on your first try, but you did it!"
"Juliette, thank you soooo much. I've learned a great deal. Haven't always kept up due to work demands, but that's fine too, cause I can catch up anytime. Looking forward to rewatching videos and practicing, practicing, practicing. This online class met my expectations and surpassed them! I never thought I could get so much out of an on-line class. As I mentioned on a facebook post, I finally learned how the artwork itself can take over and guide you in directions you never expected. That has been immense for me! Loved the music too. How to Paint an Owl sometimes became an earworm for me!"
"I really loved the course. Everything is explained so well. I love the video clips and all the details. Definitely one of the best e courses I've taken! Keep up the good work. You are an inspiration!" - Cathy Moryc Recine
"Thank-you Juliette for a really fun class! I've been working on developing my own style and exploring mixed media backgrounds. This class has taught me to trust in the process and when something doesn't seem right you can just go over it and allow something new to emerge." - cathy mckean
"Loved this class!! The videos were so inspiring, and I loved seeing all the different interpretations of the lessons--everyone was very encouraging as well. I'm very happy we will get to keep the PDF lessons too, so I can refer back to them and review. Juliette was always welcoming and helpful, quickly answering questions and commenting on everyone's work--very hands-on and involved. I really feel I've learned so much and that I got more than my money's worth from this class--thank you!" -debra benedict
"this was such a fun class! juliette is so very generous with sharing her techniques and creative process. overall, the workshop was very well organized, insightful and easy to follow. thank you so much juliette!! xo." - mary ann mckeating
I absolutely loved this class from start to finish. Juliette provides a great combination of technique and inspiration, as well as a fun glimpse into her inner artist and what it is like to be an artist. It is also very nice to receive feedback directly from Juliette as well as the other students in the class. -sally lentz
"This is the second class I have taken from her, she does a great job of breaking down the elements so anyone can follow and create art they can be proud of. If you are a perfectionist like me and felt stuck when creating then you will definitely enjoy her courses. Once I saw the creative process broken down and how it morphs or changes I felt much more at ease. Paint is forgiving ... and once I realized that, my artistic door was open-wide open!" -julie brastad
"I sign up for alot of online workshops but have only completed a very few from start to finish. Juliette's teaching style grabbed me from the beginning and I immediately felt like I could do this. I am proud to say I have been working steadily thru the class completing the weekly projects AND I am now absolutely hooked on the painting process. And I am feeling so much more confident about my art. Thank you Juliette! Loved the class and am looking forward to the Owls class!" - Kim Smith.

"I LOVED taking this e-course. Juliette holds nothing back. She shares all she knows so that her students can start (or continue) their creative journey. My favorite thing about the course was how Juliette shows you how to play and change and be brave with your artwork. I felt free to jump in and experiment because Juliette models that behavior in her lessons; so I knew that was the best was to find my girls and my style. I am a beginner. I have never painted like this before, so I wholeheartedly recommend this course for anyone...beginner or expert. Did I say that I LOVED taking this e-course? I did!"
I just loved it. I got a tremendous amount of positive feedback on my blog about the course and how much my readers enjoyed my paintings and the process. It was wonderful. It helped me embrace the idea of myself as a talented artist. I will take any course you offer, because I know you give it all and that spirit is powerful. Thank you, Juliette. You should be so proud of this course and what you are offering to others. - Lori Lohmeyer
"Your class is the best!!! LOVED the format, the layout, the organization of your class, LOVED watching you paint, LOVED the inspirational blogs and pictures. Thank you so much!!!" -linda branch
"Thank you very much Juliette for all of your hard work! This was a wonderful class. I learned a lot. I especially liked how you explained the steps also and how you figure things out and by adding things you like and adding colors to the background. It's amazing how it all comes altogether. Thank you also for the inspirations stories, recipes, and sharing your life as an artist. After this course, I feel like I can start to paint a girl!" -cathy pretorus
"Juliette is just so adorable in how she teaches. She comes across as being so calm and peaceful, but so full of positive energy and inspiration. In her class she explains all about how she creates her backgrounds and the different ways in which she approaches creating her girls."
"Juliette is also very giving with her time, she is always available to offer help and support when needed and adds encouraging comments on work posted in the gallery." -Diana Jane.
