I’m Teaching in Paint Your Heart & Soul 2018!


Hello, Art Lovers!

I’m SO excited to share that I’m going be to be teaching again in the amazing year long course called “Paint Your Heart and Soul 2018.” Woohoo! 😀


This awesome course is a collaboration with 24 out of this world artists and instructors, who paint gorgeous, soulful art using a unique variety of styles and techniques.

We will share our knowledge, tips and tricks in order to create beautiful art!

This course is designed for individuals of all skill levels, ranging from a total beginner to an experienced artist!

In this course I’m going to teach two lessons:

For my main lesson we will painting our own story as a child portrait, similar to the image below. We will create this using acrylic and mixed media, adding a dramatic backdrop to tell our story in a unique and expressive way.

For my bonus lesson, we will paint an intuitive painting with abstract background layers, much like the images below. We will combine this with a portrait in a more unusual angle, adding our spirit or power animal to tell a visual story.  

I am so excited to share these lessons with you and create some magic together! 😀

  8. Hi Katrina, I would love to win a space on paint your heart and soul, Ive not heard of this particular course until recently and it looks fabulous and rather wonderful, Ive been hopping around on blog hops all over the place at the moment as the honest truth is I am rather financially challenged currently and really don’t think I can stretch to any more art classes for a while. I know it probably sounds daft to be worrying about not being able to afford art classes but having a creative outlet is so important to me and learning new skills that will help me express myself creatively is how I soothe what ails me, so I’m hopping around blogs hoping I will be lucky <3

  9. I also would love to win a free spot. I decided to take more me-time and do more what I love in the future. Soulful art would be perfect. I already recieve your newsletter and will share on instagram and pinterest right now.

  10. OMG- I would be totally beside myself if i won a spot in your class Katrina- i adore your work <3 ty for the chance

    I would absolutely love to win the free spot! I just started my art journey last year and it has been such a blessing for me. You see I lost both my parents and my step mom all within 7 months of each other in 2016! This was extremely hard and without my art journey I don’t think I would have gotten through it. Creating Art has taught me so much in so many ways I think I am becoming whom I was suppose to be. In the future I want to reach out and help others who were like me by finding the artist in them. In the meantime I have a lot to learn and this class will help me do that I am sure! I would love to continue to create art and learn from all those amazing artist. So please please pick me!!

  14. Would love to join this soulful journey to develop both where my art will go, but also personally ❤️❤️❤️

  15. I have shared on FB, I would love love love to win this, fingers crossed as I really need discipline to practice more, I love painting and drawing so much, so here I am putting it out to the universe
