This was the first year for Acrylic April. Painting daily is the thing an artist can do to improve their painting! skills! The idea we would meet live every day and paint together for a little under an hour for the month of April certainly caught fire. This is a wild event in that we had both word prompts AND full lessons. As far as I know it this was the first daily painting program targeted at beginners. You can find all the videos in order http://bit.ly/AcrylicApril2019Calendar And here is the website with rules

We will be enjoying the best of on-location painting, as well as art workshops. Each day will be full of Art Sherpa guided adventures. Each part will be fully supported so you won’t need to already know how to do any of the activities. I will share my three favorite mediums with you, and guide you into the world of art

Plein Air destination painting and private closed art sessions will fill the days. Relaxation and social activities will fill the evenings.
Even the meals will be a work of art!
I have been busy like a Sherpa getting ready for Lifebook 2020. You might wonder why I keep doing Lifebook?
use the code LOVEBOMB2020 for 20% off before December 31
I like doing Life-book because it allows for so much growth and well-being with any students. As a teacher, I'm excited about anything that will help you reach your personal art goals. This is one of the only programs that I will participate in and recommend. I do that because I truly believe it's wonderful on every level. First, I enjoy how positive the program is and how focused on individual grow it is. Secondly, the teachers are the best collected together I have seen if your goals are healing, self-awareness, and artistic growth. Last, but not least, the cost of the course outside of materials is very good compared to other programs like this that I don't feel are as richly thought out, driven by a sheer love of sharing creativity, and well-being.
They have a lot of Teachers
As you may be aware with 30 teachers and 80 lessons there's a lot here to the course. You will be exposed to so much in different styles and thoughts in art. Each teacher brings something very special to the year. Yes, there are many faces. But that's just the surface of what I've seen. I've seen dream catchers, sculpture, rock art, and much much more. In fact as a teacher, I am a bit of an odd duck in the group BUT, when am I not? This will be the third series that I have done with Tamra Laporte. I love the work that she does both spiritually, musically and artistically. I think she curates valuable programs for her students .

A note From The Sherpa:
Hey guys thank you so much for all the support. The Patronage has really let me explore some my wilder idea's. Things I could never put on YouTube. I love our group so much.
