Welcome to the Secret Garden!

Let's Paint Together

In this class we will create a variety of floral still-life scenes, covering everything from classical painting techniques to newer, more modern, and occasionally down-right weird methods of making art. It'll be wall-to-wall flowers and it’s going to be so much fun!

The course will be self-guided through three-part series of videos.

Each session will go through three separate paintings, so, if you follow along, by the end you will walk away with nine finished paintings, or more!

 
Let's Paint!

Session 1: Composition

We learn how to make a basic bouquet, grounding it in the most ideal location for visual success. 

Session 2: Stroke

We learn how to elevate our brushwork, infusing intention and energy into every stroke. 

Session 3: Color

We learn multiple no-fail techniques for building a diverse palette, using both classical instruments like the color wheel, as well as some of my favorite apps (everyone loves that last part!). 

 

Better than I expected!

 Amanda does a great job of breaking the steps down and explaining the process very thoroughly. She made it very simple and fun. We didn’t need a lot of supplies which also made it easy. I was very happy with the results. I would definitely take another online class with Amanda!!

I cannot recommend this class enough

I have admired, loved and bought Amanda's work for years. It never occurred to me as a non painting art enthusiast that anything approaching her level of amazing would be attainable. But that’s how good a teacher she is! My fifteen year old daughter (who is a highly self critical perfectionist) and I decided to do it together and we are having such fun! Not only has it been a great bonding experience for us, but it has taught us so much about how there are no mistakes, how to be more accepting of where we are, and of how we can still create something full of joy and beauty no matter our level of experience. I can’t recommend Amanda's class highly enough. Take it. You won’t be disappointed!

A fantastic amount of teaching at an affordable price

Amanda teaches in detail, very clear and articulate. She’s lots of fun too. Comes with access to a wonderful group of encouraging people on Facebook. Great video and sound quality. I’m an experienced painter and found a lot of worthwhile take away in the course. Thank you, Amanda.
