Acrylic April

This was the first year for Acrylic April. Painting daily is the #1 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

Acrylic April Testimonials

  • Lydia Duncan-Mabry : That I truly can do this...my grandmother was an artist and I never really tried thinking I wasn't going to be any good. Now I know I can and I am learning more every day.

  • Kelly Malouf: ACRYLIC APRIL SHOWED ME quite a lot of things. I can make time to paint every day. I can do paintings I never thought I could. I can commit to doing something that makes me happy and that is OK. All paintings have an ugly phase--but now I know how to get myself out of it ;). I didn't think I'd see improvement, but I did and by completing the 30 day challenge I became proud of myself--such a great feeling.

  • Lisa Swain Stickability: is 95% of ability!

  • Catherine Socha Rathbun :... never to look at a painting thinking, “I can’t possibly paint THAT yet.”

  • Nancy Beeles Lewis: My life time dream at 80 could come true and I am now an artist.

  • Peggy Ducolon Smith: April Acrylics 2019 showed me that practicing every day will improve my techniques even when I thought I had learned it well already and that everyday can and is a learning experience of some kind (just because I did not like the painting I still learned something that I NEEDED TO LEARN

  • Keff Green: You have time if you make time. I worked full time and still got my painting done and enjoyed it to the max!

  • Darbe Lopez: Acrylic April taught me how important it is that other household members support my "me" time

13 days of Halloween

Every year we meet up to do 13 Halloween paintings. This is so much fun and at this point we have more than 30 total Days of Halloween tutorials. In fact we created a Challenge for anyone that painted all 31 days they would get a free month of Patronage on the website.

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. From our wild behind the scenes chats, strange long in group live streams and even to painting projects I have been itching to do. Like this Patron group only pastel. OHH she was fun

New Years Resolutions for Artists

new years .jpg

What you guys had to say !!

  • Joanne LaMar : To paint at least every month. To learn how to sell my paintings instead of just giving them to people who want them and to try new techniques in my paintings. Be bold.
  • Roseann Amaranto : Accept my artistic style for what it is. I’m more of a whimsical illustrative painter/artist even though I have an art degree and taught for 25 years. It’s what makes me happiest 🌹 💕
  • Tammy Racicot :To keep evolving into the artistic butterfly I've become. (never in my lifetime did I think I could achieve so much personal growth on so many levels from the most loving person/people who wanted me to succeed. When I never thought I could)
  • Renee Sanders : My artist New Years resolutions are to paint one painting of something I love every month, participate in Acrylic April and paint something new daily (only April) and paint enough wood circle ornaments to sell at the grandkids secret santa workshop. I am going to make myself a priory. I have put myself and my ambitions on the back burner for 2 years to raise my grandchildren, although they are still with me I am going to find some time for myself
  • tanya mARTin: Draw and paint everyday. Trust myself enough to venture away from tutorials/art hacks and find my own style. Continue to improve on what i have learned and step out of my comfort zone. Try new mediums and see what they have to offer.
  • Caren Kaziyev: To challenge myself and not stick with familiar techniques. In 2020 I challenge myself to try new things and be okay with my attempts not looking “perfect”. Just to keep at it.
  • Pamela Tilley Fisk : To stop judging myself against others. See my own colors.
  • Kim Nedland : To try and paint, and draw, even if my depression, makes me feel like can't do anything at all.
  • Brandy Orner : Just paint. Stop agonizing over planning, research and details and JUST PAINT!!!
  • Bryon Rice To paint more of how I feel, even if it's not realistic..so that others can feel the music I composed, which is the paint and the brush my instrument.
  • Stacey Wright : to organize all my supplies so I can start using them everyday!! And then start drawing/painting more often at least 3 times a week.. Hard when you have 2 little girls 4 and 7! Also my 7yr old is an amazing artist already and want to work and teach her more so I need to learn more and practice more to teach her skills i wish i was taught at a young age!! So hoping to do alot this year with her
  • thetolleycrew : My resolutions are to get out of my comfort zone, and paint loose. Not worry about every little detail. To find my own style.
  • luanajarecki : To enjoy life as it handed to me. Find humor in every aspect. Release my creative juices and make any art I can. At 71 I plan to do much more.
