About This Class

In this fun and experimental class, we'll first paint the moon 3 different ways:

  • With Watercolor
  • With Traditional Chinese or India Ink
  • With Acrylic Paint

If you don't have all of these on hand, no problem! Just start with what you have.

We will then choose our own favorite medium(s) and paint a small moon phase painting with it. 

This is supposed to feel enjoyable and loose -- it's a great class for beginners to intermediate artists who love creative exploration and play!

Hi! I'm Jules and I'm an artist and creative coach over at Creating Beautifully - a space to celebrate, cultivate and maybe even monetize your creativity online! Whether you’re an artist selling your work, or you just want to have fun making, I believe that everyone is (or can be!) an artist, and I hope that when you visit my website and/or take my classes, you feel empowered and excited about creating something new!

 I love helping others live a more creative and successful life! 

My business classes are bite-sized but packed full of information for creatives who want to sell more of what they make. From setting goals, to branding their social media, and beyond. I am passionate about combining business and creativity.  

My creative classes encourage and support your curiosity, embolden you, and spark your inner artist. 

I have one of those minds that hardly ever shuts off (thank goodness for meditation! In fact, for me, making art is a form of meditation.) I'm constantly exploring new ways to bring beauty, creativity, and happiness into the world -- and that fun part of art-making is the side of art that I like to bring to my creative classes.

You can see more of my art at and follow me on Instagram @julestillman. I'd also LOVE it if you follow @Creating.Beautifully on Instagram. 

I hope to see you in my classes!

With gratitude,
