How To Create Captivating Art With Your Unique Style That Tells A Story While Evoking Emotion
In this 3-month masterclass you’ll discover how to take all of your ‘artistic skills’ and apply them to the ‘business’ of being a successful, profitable artist.
It can be frustrating to get countless rejection letters from shows and galleries and not know why…
(Or maybe you don’t even know how to approach a gallery!)
Or have your artwork classified as “refrigerator” paintings when you show your friends, family or colleagues.
Especially after all the work you’ve put into your passion investing your time into classes to show you the latest techniques to turn your artwork into something you can be proud to show others…
But sometimes you already know enough, and learned enough. More classes on skill and technique start to give you diminishing returns.
So if it’s not more classes on skill and technique, then what is it that makes a painting like the masters’? Or at least one that gets into shows different than yours?
What’s that extra 1% that will turn your submission from receiving a generic rejection letter to one which earns a unique acceptance?
OR, what about revealing your paintings you show your colleagues, friends and family, and it hits them right in the heart rather than thinking their 8-year did something like that last month?
This private masterclass with 15 artists will guide you and show you how to create captivating art through your unique style that tells a story and evokes emotion.
Whatever your level is right now it doesn’t matter. As long as you’re willing to put in the work to grow yourself.
You might be coming from different backgrounds such as:
- You’ve already submitted to shows and galleries in the past
- You’re an amateur/hobby artist trying to become a professional one
- You have a full-time job
Otherwise, keep reading…
As long as you have the inner desire, we’ll bring to surface what makes your skills unique and put it on the canvas.
A 3-month journey with me, this masterclass will have 7 Modules. In between these modules we’ll do live training sessions including:
- Bi-weekly critiques of your work (be assured in the direction you’re going),
- Bi-weekly live webinars to get immediate answers to any burning question to keep your momentum going (you’ll also get recordings to relive the magic).
7 Modules That Will Turn Your Skills Into Creating Paintings That Will Pull The Emotion Out Of Your Viewer
Module 1: Claiming Your Images
This module is to re-frame any old beliefs you had in the past about being an artist and your work. We will navigate handling criticism, and protecting your creative time even when you get busy with life.
Without knowing how and when to schedule studio time to go along with your artistic goals is a big hurdle artists face. During this session we will set your goals that correspond with your studio time. I have used this plan same plan with all my students that get into galleries and shows.
The outcome in this module is to allow you to continue to create freely with confidence while you discover your unique styles.
Module 2: Slaying The Dragon Of Design
We’ll deep-dive into your personal color choices. It’s fine to copy others when you start.
However if you’re taking your artwork to the next step, you have to find how you naturally pick and blend your colors together.
Along with your personal palette, we’ll discover images that are important to you. Be it abstract, florals, figures or landscapes…the images you are drawn to begin to unravel your artistic voice.
Module 3: The Power & Emotion Of Color
You will discover how neutrals are your best friend.
They are the support for your center of interest while allowing the excitement of the painting to shine.
You will learn how to make “quiet colors”, how to use them, and how this allows your paintings to show off your true artistic voice.
Module 4: Neutrals & Edges
After building the foundations in the first 3 modules, we’ll push your personal creative boundaries and stimulate your mind to think outside the box.
We’ll breakdown such artists as:
- And of course, Picasso
You’ll be tasked with guidance on re-creating them in your own abstract. This will be one of your favorite modules – it will open doors you never knew existed.
Module 5: Talking About Your Art & The Power of Play
Learning how to play is learning how to innovate.
There is nothing like entering the studio with the idea of just playing. This is when creativity comes alive. If you are unable to turn off your critical mind and self-judgement, you’ll be trapped into a style that isn’t naturally yours. We’ll work on ourselves to “play” – so we paint for ourselves, not others.
Module 6: Finding Beauty in the Ugly
It’s easy to get stuck in the negative aspects of life.
In this module we’ll train your brain to look for beauty in something you think is ugly. Then, apply it to the canvas. This rewires your brain to look for opportunity even when things don’t look that way.
This module will stretch your vision to see beyond what is there. What a great way to view the world… going beyond and creating beauty… this will be one of your best challenges.
Module 7: The Power Of Creating A Series
Let’s put it all together…
As you know…developing a series of your work is essential. A series puts together your knowledge, your vision and your command of your medium and subject matter. In this module we’ll work on creating a series of 5-7 paintings. Questions will come up and this is the safe place to have them answered. This module shows you are ready to show the world your creativity. Congratulations !
I'm also including the following bonuses for joining the Masterclass ~gwen
BONUS #1: Abstracts That Glow ($450 Value)
This Abstracts That Glow workshop was professionally filmed in Taos, New Mexico during a” live” workshop. In this workshop I teach you how to use transparent colors to develop that Glow within your painting. I also teach you how to mix exquisite neutrals to enhance that glow.
The in person workshop normally cost $850, but is included with this Masterclass. This video course it’s broken into four parts so you can watch each section and refer to it when you need to.
For everyone that signs up today, I will personally mail this to your home on a USB card so you can put it on your computer or laptop without the hassle of downloading it.
BONUS #2: How-to talk to gallery owners & collectors script ($1,000 Value)
Don’t you get sweaty hands and your heart beats so hard you can actually hear it when you think about approaching a gallery? What do you say, how do you say it without fumbling for words… or if you you’re comfortable in saying the words… what words matter to galleries and collectors?
No matter how great your Art is, a buyer cannot read your mind… so if you don’t know how to talk to gallery owners, or collectors the emotion, and story can be lost we don’t’ talk about what matters to them. You will get a word-for-word script on how to talk to each of these types of people, and all you’ll have to do is insert your own “words” where I indicated. No longer will you need to fumble around for words when talking about your Art. And once you use this enough, how would it feel to sell your Art piece for $1,000 or more? Cause it can happen! And in this course, you can ask about this during Module “3” and on, and I’ll put you in the right direction to our specific needs.
BONUS #3: 1:1 - 30-min session with me to Clarify Your Vision. ( $250 Value...actually priceless)
This is all about YOU. Let’s organize all your thoughts into a clear goal. We’ll shape your vision for your art, what you feel you need to do to be successful … and most important…it is about discovering the depth of your creativity and accepting your personal creative genius.
This will be a game changer for you …I can’t wait!
