Course Description

Join Julie Johnson as you learn to paint from your heart. Do you feel like you are missing something? It’s not about talent. It is about applying your love of something that you know is in you. Julie will help you discover that inner passion of art that has begun to come out in you or you have just realized is there. Know each of us will have a beautiful and different outcome.

I am an artist who loves realism. It’s where I first started as an artist in art college studying illustration.

It is important to gain the fundamentals that will make your art strong. With those fundamentals we can play!
Playtime with painting is getting loose with our edges, finding texture, light and dark. An amazing thing will happen, you will find emotion without even trying. -Julie Johnson
