What supplies will I need?

You'll simply need paint, brushes and a surface to paint on!
I demonstrate with Golden Fluid Acrylics (Intro Set of 10), a pad of canvas paper and a set of acrylic brushes.

When I sign up to the Paint Along of the Month Club, what will I get?

You'll get immediate access to the Membership Site which is full of terrific information about painting, as well as extra projects, webinars and recorded Facebook events, AND you'll get access to this month's Paint Along of the Month. You'll also be able to purchase previously released Online Paint Alongs at a reduced price (we'll send you a special code).

I'm worried about keeping up with the Monthly Paint Alongs in the Club - is that a problem?

No, not at all! There's absolutely no pressure, just encouragement. Think of each Paint Along like a book on your shelf. You have lifetime access so you can pick it up and paint it whenever you want! But I will be staying in touch, to encourage you :)

Can I cancel my subscription to the Club at any time?

Yes you can. You will lose access to the main membership site and the private Facebook Group, however you will retain access to any Paint Alongs you received during your membership.
To cancel your subscription simply login and visit your account information. From there you can edit your subscriptions.

I'm a total beginner. Is a membership for me?

Yes! The beginning is the best place to start! And you'll be 'accidentally learning' more and more with every Paint Along you do.

Can I just buy the Paint Alongs I like - one at a time?

Yes - of course you can! But please consider joining the club as it is definitely the most value for your money - you get two Paint Alongs for the price of one and you get the additional membership bonuses. Remember you can cancel at any time if you don't want to continue - give it a try!


Anna I just have to tell you what an absolutely superb job you have done with your Paint Along of the Month Club! Honestly, it is brilliant. You give so much in all your classes, both in studio and online. So much more 'extra value' than other art teachers seem to give! You go above and beyond to give us all the very best learning experience, the best value and the best fun! This new online series is so well done. Congratulations!
Jane Roper
I loved painting this...great instruction, step by step and so much fun! 
Debbie Blencowe
Good wholesome fun. Bright and cheerful. Thanks Anna. My mark making is still wonky, but I'll get there!

My hubby even takes a bit of interest. Took my painting away and came back with with a piece of his sail twine stapled to the back. He said, "Hang it up!"
Anne Kenman
Ok, so I'm not an artist.... (Haven't painted since Grade 9!) I'm a teacher on summer break. But I have discovered a not so great character trait in me - I only do things that I'm already good at. 😬
So, I tried a painting today that seemed tooooo advanced. It's not great, but I 💖💖 doing it! And, I love that I can try again tomorrow! This subscription is a fabulous idea! Thank you. 😊💖😊 (and I 💖 the way you teach, Anna... I feel like I will learn something and not just recreate pictures... That extra teaching at the end - - spectacular!)
