About This Class

My classes are designed for beginners. Have you ever wanted to try a Paint Night at a local restaurant, well my classes are similar in ease but I use watercolors! They are simple and made to assist those who feel they can not paint a stick. I've heard that many times over the years. My classes do not include boring academics, but rather the fun and joy of experimenting and completing something the very first time. The great thing about the video is you can pause, replay and watch them as many times as you need to. You can do a scene several times until you feel like you have it down.


We will be painting a beautiful birch tree scene. Living in Maine, we get to watch the seasons change every year and adding an autumn scene to my art classes is only natural. I will also show you how to frame your work of art once completed.

You will learn some techniques and a dash of theory through watching my classes, but I do not get in depth like you would in an academic atmosphere.

Please enjoy my class and I love to hear feedback and even share your art in the reviews. I take your feedback seriously and use it to improve my classes for everyone.

Have a wonderful day!

I thought it was a good class and it was nice to learn some new techniques. I have done another class similar with different results. Kellie is a good teacher and easy to follow. I plan on doing it again to see if I can get the background colors looking better.
This class is full of good information and even instructions on framing.
Excellent instruction.

My interest in art sprouted from early childhood. I am fascinated with the beauty in nature, landscapes and seascapes surrounding Coastal Maine. I started painting abstract in high school, creating mood through bold colors and shapes. My focus over the past 10 years has been watercolor which allowed me to use a mor...
