the girls rule....

I've been getting a lot of questions about the Mixed Media With the Girls class. So, I thought I'd try to answer them now. Yes, the class is step by step. You will leave the class with at least one, if not more, finished paintings. Every Monday, I will post a new high definition video...not YouTube quality. When you have a chance, you'll be able to log in and view the video on your own time. And you can go back and watch it, as much as you want.

In the video, I will be showing a watercolor painting on Ampersand Aquabord, an acrylic painting on canvas, and an acrylic painting with watercolor paper doll girl. So, there are three paintings that I will be working on each week. You choose which painting medium you would like to try, or you can try all three! The paintings will all be different. So you will have a wide variety of techniques that you can learn.

If you have a problem, get stuck, or just want to share your'll be able to log onto our private blog and post messages. I check the blog quite often and will be able to get a response out to you quick!

As far as the supplies....Here's a list:

Supply List: these are the necessary items to complete a painting
