Welcome to Our Courses!

Welcome to our creative network and we are so honored you are here. YOU are the heart of this network and the whole reason we wanted to create such a beautiful online art school.
This network is a creative community that has been designed to inspire, encourage, and connect you with the art all around and within you.

We have created a beautiful and inspiring space where you will find easily accessible and affordable online workshops. A place where there would be no more excuses.

This gathering place is for art + lifestyle workshops no matter your experience level. Let’s give ourselves the permission to be amateurs and the gift of practice.

Being a creative person and living a creative life has far less to do with perfect art and more with being present and showing up.

Let’s start where we are, with what we have and become the artists we have dreamed to be.
