Congratulations on making your artistic goals and personal creativity a priority.

To practice any art, no matter how well or badly, is a way to make your soul grow. So do it. -- -- Kurt Vonnegut
  • I love everything about this quote, there's so much truth in so few words.
  • Art is a practice.
  • How it turns out isn't as important isn't as important as the doing.
  • Giving your creative-self a voice, is a path to personal fulfillment.
  • There's no time like now, just do it.

Congratulations on your decision to be that soul-growing person.

    • The only way to fail at painting is to never start

      — M. Ruley

    HOW IT WORKS:

    Typically your monthly calendar of activities will include:

    One recorded video painting demonstration.

    One Zoom creative coaching session, where you get direct access to me and I can help you in real time as you paint.

    A short lesson that's a studio tip or painting fundamental.

    A photo reference or inspiration for a DIY painting or group challenge, or something else from the list above.

    What’s included in your monthly membership

    You get access to the Paint with Maggie monthly acrylic painting class Membership Hub. 
    The Paint with Maggie monthly class membership hub is your PRIVATE entrance to the class material.
    Treat it like a personal sanctuary, come and go as you please. Stay as long as you want.

    All monthly class content is grouped in units called "courses". The courses give you direct access or links to similar lessons and information.

    For example, all of the painting video demonstrations are in the course, titled “Painting Demonstrations”. This makes it very easy to find exactly what you want, when you want. 24/7

    You have a private Facebook group community of acrylic painters with goals similar to yourself.

    Use the group to share all your art creations for feedback, ask questions, get inspiration and encouragement from myself and other artists. 

    Plus, there are bonus courses in the membership hub not found in the Facebook group classroom.

    All included courses can be seen below the sign-up button. Press the button that says “show all”.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    What supplies do I need?

    You'll have access to the supply list when you enroll. I encourage you to start with the supplies you have on hand and add to them when and if you want.

    Do I have to have a Facebook account?

    No, not to access this site, but some lessons prior to March 2021 are accessed by direct links to the videos, etc. in the Facebook group.

    Can I sell the paintings I do from the video lessons?

    Yes, artwork done from the painting videos in this membership may be sold. Having someone say they like your work and give you money for it, is an exhilarating feeling and validation that I hope you all experience. This does not give you permission to copy and/or copy and sell paintings not in the lessons, paintings seen on her website or social media sites.

    This is a subscription format of payment. That means you enter your credit card information once and you are charged automatically each month. You can leave the group at anytime. Regrets, PayPal is not a payment option for this membership. Neither are other payment options.
