Welcome! I’m Sandy, and I would be honored to help you release the creativity that I know you already have inside of you. Beginner to advanced, pencils, markers, paints — I believe we’re all artists at heart. With the right encouragement and a bit of practice, we can achieve much more than we ever thought possible.

How do classes work?

Courses are all prerecorded, with video content you can start and end at anytime. Go at your own pace; you have unlimited access to revisit each lesson as many times as you like!

What level should I sign up for?

There are no enforced “prerequisites” here, so you can jump in where you feel comfortable; see the video on each class page to get an idea how difficult it will be.

  • Jumpstart classes (Level 1) are full of great info on color theory, technique, and shading.
  • Intermediate Mini classes (Level 3) are shorter classes — and less expensive — and lots of fun. 
  • See the description of levels here.

Can I share my work or ask questions?

You bet! Join the Artventure Network — there are chat or video Studio Hour sessions with Sandy, and you can also post your work or ask questions anytime. There’s also a Facebook Group just for students.

You get an elevated sense of confidence when you complete classes, to “reach” for the next level. I recommended this to all my friends.
