Micki Wilde’s “Paint Happy” class was one of the first online classes I tried and fell in love with the entire concept of online art classes. She’s fun and funny to watch and listen to and makes you feel like whatever you are going to do next with your art with be OK!
One of the favorite things to come out of the US election this year was that I had to get away from all the negative fighting banter that was happening on social media so one of my tactics was to start befriending and following artists on social media. This has been such a blessing and I suggest you do the same. SO much better to have a feed filled with happy furry friends, flowers, and fairytale girls than memes about Donald and Hillary.
A fun fairytale self-study mini-class with 3 full start to finish instructional painting videos.
Micki started painting these wonderful whimsical animals several months ago and I fell in love with them all! Scads of her artsy friends continued to say.. PLEASE do a class!! Finally this week she has done it! I’m signing up right now. Join the Storytellers class here on Etsy.
THE STORY TELLERS ART WORKSHOP by MICKI WILDE
