Welcome to my online school! Here you will find easy step by step painting instruction videos! You can either purchase individual courses, bundles or join a membership. These sessions are enjoyed by adults, kids, families, friends and are really great for date nights or any group! Making art is a great way to disconnect and 'go away' without leaving. It is great to distract you from 'real life' and it is FUN! It is relaxing, some people say they paint rather than meditate!

My confidence in painting has increased tremendously since starting with her free paint nights and joining her paint club. It's well worth the money! And, don't forget to breathe!! Thanks Freda!”
