Creating is not supposed to be hard.
There is a way to find your own voice, your unique style and enjoy your studio again. Making art that you love and that people want to hang on their walls is possible.

Art Matters. Your Art Matters.
You don’t have to make art that looks like everyone else's. I have a BFA but I'll be honest and tell you that the style I now paint in is completely self taught.
After learning on my own, teaching thousands of artists and working as a professional artist, I want to guide you in building your own life as an artist.
Bold School can save you years of learning on your own, not just skills but bold expression.
Making Art Simple So You Can Be Bold.

Charla and her team have created a virtual school with all of the benefits of an in-person art school,
but where I can proceed at my own pace and repeat classes if I wish. I don't think there is anything missing from Bold School that one could have at an actual institution - except maybe the traffic and the commute!!! I absolutely love it!!"
