Upcoming Online Courses
The Magic of Painting with Melissa Harris -Creating Mystery with Paint
Improve Your Painting – Overcome blocks – September 21 – November 16
An 8 week Online Art Course
You may go at your own pace. Zoom sessions will be recorded in case you cannot attend
You will be inspired by specific emails on our topic, guided visualizations and personal preferences for the content of your artworks. You may choose to work from your imagination or from photos or life. I will provide you with photos upon request. The zoom calls are not lessons but for sharing and feedback from me and each other. Your lessons are through the videos and from guidance from myself and others on our private Facebook page as well as on the zoom calls.
The course is appropriate for any skill level including complete beginners but those who have had some experience with supplies will be most comfortable. Contact me regarding any questions around this at firstname.lastname@example.org and we can make a time to speak if you like.
You may use any medium you like since the basic principles of composition, subject matter and getting movement into a painting are the same. The demo videos will be mostly in watercolor, possibly a couple in acrylic.

Art is a spiritual inner journey for me and your e-course is a perfect fit for encouragement to go within, The sacred circle reminds us of our sense of oneness, love and support for each other as women on a path to fuller expression. In your instruction, you come from a place of great respect and love for each opening flower and freely give of your spiritual midwifery. Others may talk of technique but without the spiritual connection there is not the vibrancy and inner stirring to join in the dance. You are certainly qualified to teach us all aspects of technique but go beyond that to light our inner flame. Yes, we are women on fire!! – Ruth C – Gloucester, MA
Creative expression (painting, creative journaling) AND meditation “saved” me by igniting passion and helping me let go of a job that was suffocating me. Working through fear and insecurities, I am now intentionally giving attention to things that bring me joy.. Those in this online circle inspire and motivate me daily.” Melissa – your invitations / assignments are fabulous – always “stretch” us to process or express something we may or may not have in a different way! Thank you! – Kate B Richmond, VA
I have never been a part of a group like this before. It is very special, sharing life, loves, and art with all of you. I have loved the friendships, support, and learning experiences with like-minded creative souls. I truly care about these women, and appreciate their opening up and sharing life experiences through the venue of this group. It has been better than I ever could have expected. It is become a sacred, special part of my life. – Sallie W – Tallahassee, F
