Time to tune in – Bloom True class gallery (2)

“This class brought a whole new level to my artwork. The color, layering and freedom bring pure joy along my artful journey.” Marji Thompson

A lot of people take ‘Bloom True the E-Course’ expecting how to learn how to paint with acrylics. Of course they learn that, but more importantly they learn how to paint like THEM. Like their true selves. And how do they do that? By learning how to tune into their intuition like never before. This course is not just about painting, it is about life, and it is a revelation. Look at the gorgeous images which emerged from class participants. If you want to join us for the next session of this extraordinary class (beginning on January 28), find out more and register here.
