What is Joy of Painting? 

"How could I help others tap into the kind of creativity that feels endlessly abundant and expresses something special & unique to each person?" -- Cathy Nichols

I like to think of Joy of Painting as an online “spark box” of painterly inspiration delivered to you each month by a caring mentor.  I know how exciting it feels to learn a new technique, discover a game-changing tool, or find new a color palette that sings!  That’s why I take great pride in developing a new painting lesson each month that will move you forward as an artist and spark your imagination.  And, as a member, you also aren't limited to just the new lesson of the month; you also have unlimited access to the entire catalogue of past months while enrolled.

My specialties are florals, collage, mixed-media and color; and I love showing you how I create paintings so that you can learn from them, apply my techniques to your own skills, and grow your unique artistic practice. To keep things interesting, we'll also have guest speakers and occasional lessons inspired by master artists.  My hope is that Joy of Painting brings you more joy and helps you tap into the kind of creativity that feels endlessly abundant and nourishes your artistic soul.  

What's  Included with Joy of Painting?

A New Art Project Each Month

I've chosen each monthly project with care to help you follow your joy, tap into your gifts and keep developing as an artist. Core content revolves around 4 main areas: Creativity & Flow, Technique, Personal Vision and Inspiration from Master Artists. On the 1st of each month, you'll say hello to a new video tutorial, step-by-step PDF and color palette to keep you growing and thriving as an artist.
