Art for Everyone Classes · Whimsyville

Busy…Learning & Teaching !

It’s been a long time since I have posted some work… I’ve been doing the Doggie Portraits – I LOVE doing this because I get to meet some amazing fur peeps and their owners.  Since we lost Murphy in April, our puppy time has been greatly reduced.

To fill that ‘void’, I decided to challenge myself and create an online class.  The platform I used is Skillshare – they offered a $200 bonus for a ‘new’ class in the ‘craft’ category – crafts being basically anything you can make….. so I took them up on the challenge.

While working on the class, I discovered that I actually had a TON of ideas for classes, and decided that I’m going to brand them as Art for Everyone from Whimsyville Studios !…. simple, fun projects with 15-20 minute ‘how to’s’ and of course colorful and fun artwork.

I would LOVE it if you would join me – I’d love it so much, that I am offering it to you for FREE – (at least the first 30 of you that take advantage). After that you can join for 99 Cents a month..

Here’s what we will create as the class Project….. My Doodled Rooster…. hope to see you there!

Tearing paper, a mathbook and collage

I am a relatively ‘new’ artist – like ten years or so. Before that, I was a math nut. These are two really different sides of the brain… so it only makes sense that i would tear up an ancient matchbook (circa 1865) and create a Pelican. The math book was falling apart literally, but… Continue reading Tearing paper, a mathbook and collage
