We will be re-running my most popular online painting class! We will start small and work up to 36x48 sized canvases. Let's work large, loose, messy and free with lots of layers of color, line, shape and mark! Acrylic paint, charcoal and pastel. We have a wonderful private online community which is super supportive, fun and full of positive feedback. Join us!! Click here for details
I would love to share with you my favorite ways to celebrate all of the delightful things we come across in our everyday lives. Working in my JOy Stuff sketchbook has opened up a whole new way to make art, move my hands and soak in appreciation. It has been a wonderful addition to my world and gets me off to an artful, positive and grateful start each day.
We will draw, paint, write, play and make paper. We will collage and create delightful pages and fill them with meaning. And we will create ways to extend our gratitude to others from tiny thank you notes to love letters and more. Let's create a joy based, portable studio in our sketchbooks!! Please join in the fun! We would love to have you be a part of our lovely, supportive online community.
All my best and loads of JOy!
Wordplay Painting is available as a self study class!
A giant, warm welcome to Wordplay Painting.
I am so excited to share with you the many wonders of infusing our artwork with compelling, meaningful and irresistible words!
We will begin our class by finding and preparing a few used books and turning them into what will become our Art Books.
Think of your Art Books as small laboratories for exploration, inspiration and play. There we will use words as inspiration, as graphic elements, as lists, and as the subjects of small paintings and drawings. We will also work, much as a writer might, by considering things such as composition, editing (room for the eye to rest), titles, and character development.
We will explore through prompts poetry and personal handwriting as well as make one larger piece that will combine the techniques we have gathered along the way. Even our book covers will act as canvases!
I look forward to spending time with you and delving into the rich set of possibilities that we will find together when focusing on working with words in our work!
All my best!
with love, Lynn

A great BIG Welcome to the Joy of Collage!
I would be honored to share with you all of my favorite collage techniques as well as a handful of time-tested special tricks for making a great finished work of art. My greatest hope is that you will have fun and enjoy the process.
We will explore great ways to create fresh collages with a focus on building a story and surface. I will show you how to age your collage for a unifying look and we will incorporate drawing, painting, smudging, stamping and a little poetic thing I like to call … dot dot dot.
My overall philosophy is one of freedom, play, exploration and most of all FUN!!!!!! This class is all about YOU, and using your voice to make the things that make your heart sing!
One of my favorite things in my in-person workshops is the show-and-tell and positive feedback session at the end of each class. I love hearing what each artist has to say about what they learned and how their pieces developed! Happy accidents and revelations are the best! I am so glad we will be able to learn from each other this way in this online format.

Hello and a great big GigAntic welcome to the JOy of Mixed Media Assemblage!!
Working with found objects inside a boX!
What could be more fun than combining all of our favorite things and working within a box format?? Mixed-Media Assemblage allows us to explore collage, drawing, altering photos, painting, altered found objects, storytelling, composition and more!
I would be thrilled to share with yOu all the techniques, tricks and tips that I have learned working in assemblage. It is so much fun… from finding the perfect box to laying down and collaging a background to altering photos and found objects, to attaching and gluing and to special little ways I have developed to make your work finished, framed and ready to hang on the wall.
This class is all about yOU, and using your voice to make things that make your heart sing! You will play the “pieces-parts” game, which is fantastic way of seeing how many fresh combinations that you can come up with. If you have a fabulous stash of found objects and old photos, this is the perfect project, if you need more, its a great excuse to go “on the hunt!” We will work with “found” boxes and/or cradled wood panels.
Please join us for an artistic, mixed-media romp chock full of encouragement, learning, sharing, play, imagination, exploration and most of all fun!
