Who is this challenge for?

Everyone! It doesn't matter if you are a complete beginner or a more experienced artist, this challenge is for EVERYONE! And its a great way to connect with others -especially this winter!

What medium do you use? Is this for acrylics or oil paints?

I will be giving demos in oil and cold wax medium. However, the demonstrations are for ANYONE working in acrylics, or oil paints- as the focus is on colors ad how to use them in abstract art!!

What supplies do I need?

As this is a challenge rather than a class, I'd 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 colors, any substrates to paint upon, a palette knife, a palette.You could absolutely do this challenge with water based acrylics, or oil paints, so no need to go out and buy new paints to participate.

Will there be chance for live participation?

Yes, upon enrollment you will receive information about a live zoom link. There will be an opportunity to enter the classroom live, and ask Lisa questions during the challenge.

What if I cant attend the live sessions?

You can attend live sessions or watch prerecorded presentations or both. So even if you cant make the live zoom classes, you will be able to access the recorded video lessons via your teachable course once enrolled.

BEFORE taking Lisa Mann fine art class

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!
