My name is Michelle Scarafile and I’ve been painting since I was a young girl. In MODULE 1, I’ll share with you why it was so important for me to create this course and I’ll help you get clear on your own “WHY” as well as the mindset you need to hold as an artist.
MODULE 2 is all about setting up your SPACE and deciding on your subject matter. Whether you paint a landscape along with me, or something else… you’ll learn everything you need to know to get started.
In MODULE 3, we’ll cover the all of the SUPPLIES you’ll need and what to do with them. Investing in art supplies is not a cheap endeavour. I’ll tell you what you need to buy so you don’t waste a ton of money on art supplies and I’ll show you exactly what to do with them!
MODULE 4 is all about THEORY and practical APPLICATION. You’ll learn about VALUES and why they will ‘make or break’ your piece… You’ll also get a crash course in COLOR THEORY and you’ll learn how to create virtually any color you want (or need) from 2 yellows, 2 reds and 2 blues. After this module, you’ll forever look at art in a different light.
MODULE 5 is where we PUT IT ALL TOGETHER. We take everything you’ve learned so far and prepare to paint. We’ll chat about what to do when fear creeps in (believe me, it does!) and how to protect yourself from copyright infringement. You’ll also learn about proportion, how to sketch, and the importance of starting with something other than white.
MODULE 6 is where the rubber meets the road. PAINT goes on the canvas! It’s time to ground your canvas… graph, plot & sketch your subject… and start adding layers of paint. I’ll also share some tips and tricks to make sure you stay out of the proverbial quicksand.
MODULE 7 includes TROUBLESHOOTING. We’ll cover what to do if your painting falls flat and when it’s time to call it “finished”… You’ll also learn how to treat the edges of your canvas, whether or not to consider framing, and how to hang your piece. Finally, we’ll cover the age-old questions of “What to do next?”
If you decide you want to paint from your own photograph, don’t worry… I’ve got you covered. In this module, I’ll outline Tips & Tricks for painting virtually ANY subject, including abstract art. You’ll also find your list of SUPPLIES and every PDF / COURSE DIAGRAM in one nice, neat place.
My hope for you is that you continue to paint and that you share it with others, so I’ve created this quick and easy BONUS video that will teach you how to make a pour painting; something you can easily do (LIKE IN AN HOUR!) and share with others…
