Bold color was the key I was missing

The. Key! To the entire thing. Bold School created the perfect foundation for me to pursue this style. 

I'm self-taught. I've taken all sorts of online courses and use acrylic, oil and pastels...I just couldn't find the right style that felt like 'me'. I took a gamble that bold color was where I wanted to go.

Thank you all so very much. I watch your classes over and over.

Your Classes keep my hope of creating alive and refreshed. 

I can’t thank you enough!"

Thank you Charla.

Your passion for art is infectious, it brought me to tears.

For too many years I have dabbled in my art, too fearful to be vulnerable and find my message or my unique style.
As a young person I too was told...to get a real job. But art crept its way in as I became an art teacher. Teaching art in school is one thing, discovering my own art is another.

Now is the time to open up this gift God has given me and share it with the world. Thank you again. ❤"

Color Theory You'll Understand

At Bold School, we love the traditional color wheel, but Bold School is all about reinventing the Color Wheel - changing the paradigm of Color Theory - so that you can make better art.
