"What does it take to become a mixed media artist?  I fully believe that with an excellent foundation in skillset and the correct materials, that practice is the best teacher.  The 10,000hrs to mastery rule applies to many things and I believe art-making to be one of them. Add a heaping helping of confidence and trust to that practice and you will become unstoppable" C.Lovisa

This course is designed to take you from zero to hero in 8 short lessons,  while mastering 6 essential mixed media skillset exercises.  You are in great hands with your master mixed media instructor, Christina Lovisa, who after 15 years of teaching has experienced every question a student might come up against.  Her teaching style is steady and thorough as she addresses all the questions you might have as she explains and teaches in a demonstrative style.  

The flexibility in this lifetime access course is insurmountable.  Take the lessons at your own pace and complete between 1-6 (or a gazillion), tiles of each skill. In the last video, you will learn how to join them to create your own tapestry of creativity.

  • Christina has been an inspiration to me as a new artist. I have been mainly focused on encaustic art for about three years. As with many new artists, during the covid lockdown, I was looking for something to do and lacking inspiration. Christina kindly donated an hour of her time every morning throughout the whole isolation session to host FB sessions of an open studio. This helped to inspire, lead and excited us to continue to create and expand our artistic journey. Christina lead with a deep passion and honest willingness to share what she actually could show us online . I was so inspired by Christinas arts and her enthusiasm I too, started creating her type of mixed media art. In a recent showing in our local galley her art style was actually referred to as punk art. This confirmation inspired me even more to continue on this journey with Christina. Christina has an ability to lead you and guide you but ensure that the students find their own direction, which may be different solution but always a leaning process. I continue to express my gratitude to her for being such a giving, dedicated instructor and mentor to us all.

  • Christina is a great and generous teacher. Her way to explain is clear and simple. She help us learn to trust ourselves, trust the process and learn what we need to ask ourselves to go further with our creation. Her teaching is more than technical, than the" how to". You learn a way of being an artist, a way to become a unique creator of you divine self.

    — Heather, ON, Canada
  • I have been taking art courses with Christina Lovisa for several years now. Having had to temporarily step away from art after having kids, Christina has helped me reawaken my creative self while teaching me new skills and techniques so that I can move away from my former use of toxic materials into the world of encaustics. I always look forward to her next class and come away every time feeling fulfilled and re-energized with new ideas and a renewed confidence. I highly recommend Christina’s art courses for anyone looking for a positive space to explore and create!

    — Meg, ON, Canada
  • I've been studying with Christina for over 4 years and keep coming back for more!! Beginning with encaustic painting and more recently mixed media Christina carefully explains each method step by step. During classes and workshops she challenges her students to explore each new technique and if comfortable encourages us to push our individual boundaries.
    Christina's famous mantra is " don't worry I've got you" !!! Christina's winning smile and enthusiasm along with her creativity make each session so much FUN!

    — Margo, ON, Canada
  • I have taken several workshops with Christina. I think what Keeps me coming back is her willingness to show her vulnerability, her authenticity, her generosity, and her commitment and support to each of us! She’s taught me to let go of things I may be attached to, and take risks without fear to open a space for something better! In her words (and tattoo), she always assures, “I’ve got you!”
