In my journey with art, I thank my teachers, artists who share their passion so that others may learn and grow. I am so grateful. I hope my sharing on this blog inspires you to continue your own journey in your interests, and if art is your passion, I hope these people and resources help in your own journey.
And if, in my blog posts, I may mention the classes, strategies, and brushes that many of these teachers have graciously shared or that are available at Skillshare or the artists’ websites for purchase, look in these links to find access to the learning:
Jennifer Nichols of Leila and Po
Brenda Bakker — also known as DekWebbel
Lisa Bardot of Bardot Brush
Teela Cunningham of Every Tuesday
Priscilla Cardy of Cardwell and Ink
Tatiana at Tatyworks
By learning from other artists, we build our confidence and learn to adapt and adjust without fear of being perfect— just make art every day!
