Mixed Media Artist & Creativity Coach

Get set-up to paint with Acrylic

In this short FREE course I go over the basic things you will need to consider if you want to paint with Acrylics. These include paints, brushes, palette, what to paint on and how to start.

Paint Night - No. 1 - Love

Join me in my studio as I make three paintings inspired by the theme of love. I will share with you how I go from blank canvas to completed paintings. I will explain every step that I take and my thought processes as well. This course is suitable for absolute beginners and experienced artists.

More About Chrissie Richards

So, a little bit about me... I work from my studio at home in Hertfordshire or whenever I can at my bolt hole in Darsham, Suffolk. I am often joined by my two dogs, Ruff the West Highland Terrier and Luna the Bedlington Terrier.

Most of my work starts from just playing with materials with no plan or outcome in mind. Paint, collage, pastel, charcoal and graphite amongst other materials are laid down layer after layer until an idea or image emerges.  I am particularly drawn to working in an open and intuitive way. 

I really enjoy showing people my process and sharing my thoughts on art making. I aim to inspire people to be more creative and make art in every day lives; whether this is just for their own wellbeing or as a practising artist. 

I invite you to try one of my courses and see how much fun it can be to make art, it isn't difficult, anyone can do it and I can show you how.

Here is what a recent course participant said: 

"It was a treat to watch your video, Chrissie! You make art-making seem effortless while not pretending it’s not challenging, fun while not pretending we don’t get stuck, exciting even when we don’t like what’s happening on the board. Your delivery is endearing, gentle, light - it was as if we were in the room with you and sipping your wine - which in a way, we were! I hope, and think, that you will have many takers for your proposed courses. And I’m loving your group, create relax repeat! Thanks! Jaci 💛💕🌹💕"
