Everything is online so you can grow as a painter and expand as a wholehearted artists from the comfort of your home.

This course was filmed over the entire painting process of painting a portrait of a Yorkie named Baka. It includes video lessons of every step of my proven process of painting a pet portrait. You’ll have access to every real-time brushstroke and views of my palette work. Once the workshop kicks off, we release one module per week. For each of the nine modules in the course, you’ll watch several video lessons while you paint. Taking this journey with me takes less than 5 hours per week.

As a student, you’ll also be invited to join Peer Love forum to gather with your fellow painting students, ask questions, share progress and learn and grow together. I’ll pop in now and then to share advice and tips.

I’ll host several Live Group Coaching Video Calls hosted where I’ll answer questions, demo techniques or elaborate on a specific topic.

Here’s what past students have said about the format:

“It’s really in depth, which has helped me stick to it. Erica’s way of teaching really works.” – Olya H.

“Erica has a lovely way of guiding you through the total experience of painting in a nurturing and non-judgmental way. She encourages you through the process and understands where the struggles will appear and prepares you for it. I really couldn’t have found a better course to begin my painting career with than Erica’s! It has inspired me more than words can say to continue to grow and enjoy painting.” – Jayne M.T.
