What supplies do I need?

As this is a challenge rather than a class, Id start by seeing if you have a basic palette of paints. The lessons are very open-ended, and experimental, and can be accomplished in many ways. Suggested supplies include a basic palette of oil paints, arches oil paper, or any substrates to paint upon, a palette knife, a palette, and if desired cold wax medium.You could absolutely do this challenge with water based patinas well( acrylics) so none to go out and buy new paints to participate.

Will there be an online community?

Yes, absolutely! I encourage you to ask questions, leave comments and share your work on the shared private facebook page. You will receive info on how to engage once enrolled.

Hi, I am your instructor, Lisa Mann.

I am an abstract artist, gallery owner, teacher, and counselor from Portland Oregon.I work in mixed media , but mostly with oil paints and cold wax medium, a luminous paste that allows for layering and experimentation and gorgeous results. I am an accomplished, award winning artist, but my passion is really to teach and enjoy this process with others. I teach painting in a fun, intuitive, and informative style- where absolute beginners to more seasoned artists will not only learn the skills to paint on ALL levels, but learn how to find your own artistic voice. And, we have a great time. Join me!
