To kick off the new year strong, The Distortion of Eyes and Noses is an intensive 4 week course with a focus on the face and a special emphasis on eyes and noses. We begin by first getting a solid understanding of how to draw and form those two features, then push our fundamental understanding with expression using line, color, and values. There will be two live teaching sessions each week through FB Live in our secret classroom and downloadable video content as well. If 3-D noses or expressive eyes are a struggle for you, or just capturing strong emotion and expression in the face, this course will be beneficial to you! Our mediums will be charcoal, watercolor, fluid acrylics and a bit of mixed media. The course is $150 and you can register below!

This 4-Week intensive online course introduces us to the observation of line in our daily lives, how to identify and create lines of expression, and how to move from predictable, forced, and controlled lines to outrageous lines of energy, feeling, and confidence. Combining my Push Past Ordinary course with the daily practice of creativity, this course helps painters and thinkers alike approach line in an unexpected way with new lenses for experiencing them as creative tools of the trade. Two FB Live teaching sessions per week in our secret classroom, a dive into using our art journals for focused practice, and a sensible approach to brushwork give this course the best of both worlds for creatives and painters. If you can block of four weeks to devote to deep diving into line exploration and expression, the course will be transformative for you.

The Textural Line is a 4 week intensive online course exploring the use of 3-D textures in 2-D form. With a heavy technique emphasis, students will learn step by step use and construction of stitching, collage, skins, gesso textures, and hand made stencils with application on painted surfaces. The course contains 20+ downloadable videos as well as 2 hours each week of live teaching instruction which is viewable up to a year. FB is required for our secret classroom but all written content will be delivered in PDF form. If you are looking to shift your 2D work with an organic, textural component with line emphasis, this is the course for you. (Live sessions will be on Mondays and Thursdays at 2 central, but you do not have to be present to participate.) Details and Supply List will be available upon registration.


This course takes line work further and offers a 5 week chunk of instruction on learning to draw what you see, with an emphasis on form, values, and expression. The fundamentals of basic drawing are covered using graphite and charcoal, but an added element of expressive marks and movement is an additional layer this course offers to the creative or artist wishing to boost their drawing and observational skills.
