Ever dreamt of being able to paint but felt discouraged by a teacher who said you weren't good at art, or had some past attempts that didn't go as planned? After teaching thousands of students who once doubted themselves, we can confidently say that everyone can learn to paint, and it's never too late to start!

Introducing The Progress NOT Perfection Painting Masterclass

Folk Art Painting is like learning to paint the same way you learnt to write. You will learn brushstrokes (like letters) and then put them together to make designs (like words) we simplify the process into manageable steps, each module building on the one before. The full colour 34 Page Workbook and Online Video Classroom takes the complete beginner step by step through 12 modules that teaches you the complete foundation of Folk Art Painting. Scroll left to see the 12 modules.

First Class Support

There is nothing more frustrating when you are learning something new and you have questions but nowhere to ask them! You NEED to know whether you're on the right track or why you’re just ‘not getting it’ Without this support, you are much more likely to give up. That's why me and my assistant Toni are always available via our private FB group, or via email. In addition as you complete each module we provide personal feedback and a certificate of completion when you've completed all 12 modules.

A fulfilling and exciting journey I am loving the course. Everything is beautifully presented, from the kit, the website, the course materials, and each module is explained in great detail so that anyone can easily attempt it and enjoy success. Also, the Student Community group provides support and encouragement. I'm now aged 76 and I only wish I’d started this journey earlier as I feel so empowered.

What I love most about this course, is the fact that you submit assignments and get real feedback. In every other thing I’ve tried to stick to, I’ve thought, “Oh I really should find time to do some art”, but then days run into weeks and I never actually get anything done. So in this course, I’ve been giving myself weekly deadlines and submitting my assignments on a Sunday and this really helps my progression. In the feedback, you can tell that you’ve really looked at what I’ve produced, and I look forward to my emails each week. Thank you for such a well run course, I’m so excited to keep learning, it’s given me new inspirations and I don’t ever want it to end.
