"These classes are all top notch. But they will only take me so far.
Mentorship is what really pushes through the resistance of 'good enough' and into real growth.
I could never say this enough: Mentorship and is PRICELESS.
- Elle McCarthy
Do you ever feel overwhelmed just by looking at your color palette?
If there’s anything I’ve learned after working with nearly 5000 artists in my art classes…
It’s that we all go through the same struggles when it comes to mastering the art of color and paint.
Color mixing results in mud. And the canvas always turns into a hot mess.
And sadly, because it is a challenging skillset (when you don’t have the tools I’m about to show you), I see too many artists giving up because they think they “don't have the talent.”
But what you need to realize is...
Painting with Bold Abstract Color is
A Skillset That Anyone Can Learn!
Would you try an instrument and give up if it didn’t sound right on your first try?
Then why would it be any different when learning art?
And don’t tell me it’s because you can’t draw…
I’ll show you how drawing is a science, not an art, and anyone can draw a beautiful face!
Just like any other skill, drawing, painting, and color can be mastered by ANYONE who wants to try.
Our Curated Membership teaches you those skills and demonstrates the techniques that will get you making bold expressive masterpieces.

Thank-you Charla for the encouraging and searching words about art and our relationship to it.
In my woodworking life I have tried to help people in making their lives better and brighter by building whatever they needed. In accomplishing this, I created in differing ways and enjoyed doing so. Now, painting.
