Imagine....Painting Confidently whilst ENJOYING the Process

Discover the secrets of acrylic, unlock new techniques and transform your paintings in this exciting and immersive 6-week online painting programme

You love painting, BUT... You often don't know where to start or you start but something isn't quite working!

I know how you feel…. I’ve been there! You’ve read the books, watched videos and the artist makes it look so easy and yet when you try to put paint to canvas it just doesn’t look right.

Do You Find Yourself...

Are you churning out painting after painting with no real foundations or structure. Do you hope that the more you paint the better you’ll become?

What would it be worth to you if.....

Yep! you will be able to do all of this!

You are creative & when you have the right support....

  • You can spend more time PAINTING and less time worrying about whether you’re getting right
  • You’ll have more FUN than you ever thought possible – and begin creating paintings you can be proud of
  • Start seeing like an ARTIST
  • You can paint with CONFIDENCE!
  • SHARE the journey with like-minded people

Now imagine what would be possible if you took this time for yourself to learn new skills and discover the kind of success you can have with your paintings. I’ve spent years crafting these results and I can get you on the right path in a lot less time.

Learning to paint doesnt' have to be stressful

Improving your painting skills doesn’t have to be complicated.

With so much information out there it’s hard to know where to focus your attention. All the books and videos in the world aren’t going to help you unless you have a framework for your learning.

You don’t need to spend thousands on art education, you just need to learn specific steps and strategies that you can build on which will help you put it all together.

I’m a qualified tutor of adult education with over 10 years experience

Just a few examples of my in-person workshops. You will get the same support with me online – that I promise. The only difference is I can’t bring you a cup of tea!

“I would certainly, grade Michelle’s classes as 5 stars. Her knowledge of colour and techniques is very helpful.” Jenny Hartman

Meet Your Art Tutor

I’m Michelle Gibbs. I’ve been painting for 20+ years and teaching in-person painting classes for 10+ years I’ve been empowering my students to create paintings they are proud of whilst enjoying the process.

I create fun, flexible painting lessons where you will learn to paint confidently with bold colours, live sessions, engaging discussions, and pre-recorded tutorials.

One last thing....

Being an artist can be a solitary hobby, especially if you are surrounded by people who don’t really ‘get’ what it is you do – trust me I know, I’m the only creative one in my family!

This is one of the biggest reasons I created this programme and community group. I wanted to connect like-minded individuals who are all striving for the same goal – to create paintings they can be proud of.

Whether you are a complete beginning, a hobbyist or someone trying to improve your skills to maybe sell your work, whatever your reason you’ve come to the right place.

This programme was born out of my 20+ years as a professional artist selling her work and 10+ years teaching in-person weekly art classes so I’ve been able to see first-hand what it takes to succeed.

I’d love for you to join me on this journey and realise your potential.
