About This Class


Lets create a whimsical painting of sheep!

This class is perfect for anyone who has never painted before but would like to jump in and create something shareable right away.

No prior knowledge or experience required!

By the end, you’ll have created your very own painting and will have gained experience with some basic painting techniques, such as:
How to blend colors to create smooth transitions, practice controling line thickness and how to use basic shapes to create a recognizable object.

You can create your own spin on the steps I outline, or simply follow along step by step.

Here are some examples of Sheep'Scapes:
