About This Class


In this class you'll learn to paint 2 versions of a fun, easy, go to style of cumulonimbus clouds using the wet on wet technique.

Use this style cloud as an image in your nature journal, in a landscape painting, as a background for a quote, or anywhere poofy piled up clouds would add the perfect nature inspired touch!

Connecting humans and nature, creatively!

I'm your guide into nature inspired drawing and painting, Kelly Johnson!

If you drop by my world on an average day you might find me gardening, making art, snowboarding, surfing, vegan baking, traveling, or helping humans build deep relationships with nature through art and organic gardening!

I have a BFA from the Savannah College of Art and Design, an MA in environmental studies from Goddard College, an AMS 6-9 teaching credential & 10 years in the classroom, + 20 years experience teaching art & 11 years teaching nature-study to children and adults in a wide variety of settings.

I've painted everything from huge murals in Mexico to tiny paintings in Virginia to tropical plants in Florida to veggies in Europe and I love how art builds community and connections in every venue!
