Bring art to everyone
one paintbrush at a time
Children, teens and adults who have no art background love the way this method gives them a jump start into the world of being an artist. Experienced painters find this method makes the painting come together faster and allows for more freedom for the composition to evolve as they work. The simplified color mixing method teaches how to create all of the colors needed from only four basic colors. As one painter with years of teaching other classes expressed, “I feel so free not having to cart around tons of colors of paint and knowing I can create any color I need to remix, as I have all the ingredients in the four colors I can now carry.”
First time students have ranged from 5 to 100 years old and are quick to gain confidence in their new pursuit. The method is so versatile that it can be adapted to the skills and ability of anyone to provide success. “I can’t believe I painted that!” is a common response at the completion of a student’s first piece.
“Our mission is to foster confidence, boost self-esteem and nurture artistic creativity through painting. We teach people regardless of their age, disability, or experience to paint amazing pictures with ease.”
