A five-week, online painting adventure


The Bloom True E-course presents a groundbreaking, transformational approach to painting and living. The course celebrates intuition, connects body, mind and spirit; and allows unique, expressive paintings to emerge.

For four years, the Bloom True E-course has inspired thousands of people throughout the globe to embrace a new, wildly freeing way of creating — and now this newly designed, self-paced course is available to you.

Throughout the five-week journey, I offer guidance and step-by-step support in demonstrating my entire Brave Intuitive Painting process, which includes powerful transformational life lessons along the way.

I have been fine-tuning this course for the past four years, and I couldn’t be more proud of it.

This course did more for my mental state then months of therapy. – Alex Keys

About the Course

The Bloom True E-course will empower even first-time painters to unlock their creative flow, while gleaning powerful life lessons along the way. It is brimming with gorgeous, high-definition video demonstrations, unique creative lessons, inspiring prompts, interviews with fellow artists, in-depth weekly Q&A sessions, and enough encouragement and inspiration to last a lifetime,

Professionally filmed in high-definition, and shot on location in my Portland studio, the course provides encouraging, step-by-step guidance. You will find yourself bravely letting go of fear and embracing intuition. You’ll find your own style and open up to a new world of creative possibilities. In this course, I show the evolution of three, large paintings from start to finish.

The Bloom True E-course is unlike any other online painting e-course out there — it may change the way you paint forever.

NEW! The updated Bloom True E-course is now available as a self-paced painting adventure.

I am thrilled to offer the updated Bloom True E-course as a self-paced, learning experience. This means that you can purchase the course anytime, and move through all the lessons while honoring your own rhythm and lifestyle.

Enjoy access to all of the course material, including live, monthly Q&A Spreecasts. In addition you will have access to a Global Community of Bloomers for one year from the time of your purchase.

What materials will I need?

Please see the Materials Page for more information on the materials you will need for the class. Please note that materials are not included in the cost of the course. If you find the canvases and paint expensive, there are many other options you could try, including heavy watercolor paper (something like a 300-lb. paper will work great), panels (such as pieces of masonite from the hardware store), painting over old paintings at thrift stores, or old doors. Paints come in many different brands, sizes and prices. Please buy paint according to your budget. While I prefer Golden Brand paint now, I used to paint with house paint from the hardware store, and it worked just fine.

I haven’t painted before. Is this class for me?

Yes! This class is for anyone who wants to loosen up, become more bold and explore their creativity in a new, intuitive way. The process is very forgiving and no prior painting experience is necessary.

I am already a professional artist. Is this class for me?

Yes, even if you have been painting for years, this class will bring a fresh approach, new techniques, and a new way of looking at painting from a place of intuition, freedom and joy.

How do I know if this course is for me?

This course is for you if …

  • You want to discover a unique approach to painting, which can translate into all areas of your life.
  • You want to let go, be bold and allow your paintings to unfold naturally in their own time.
  • You are ready to move through fear and embrace the unknown.

This course is NOT for you if you are looking for a course on specific painting techniques or if you want to learn how to paint what is in front of you. While many techniques will be shared, this is much more about the approach than specific methods.

Will I learn a lot of new painting techniques in this course?

I will share a variety of techniques and painting prompts, but please note that this is not primarily a course about painting techniques. It’s also not a course for replicating an image of what is in front of you. It’s not even knowing what you will paint before you begin.

Instead, this course presents a holistic approach to life and painting, which encourages you to allow your paintings to emerge organically in unexpected ways. It is a result of listening to your intuition, trusting and being brave.

I have taken an in-person workshop with you before. What is different in this course?

There are four main differences:

  1. You can work at your own pace in the comfort of your own home.
  2. There are many additional elements that will help you find inspiration for your painting process in your everyday life.
  3. You will have access to professionally-shot videos for one year, so you can revisit what you learned in each lesson.
  4. You can share this experience with a community of like-minded people from all over the world.

I’ve never taken an online class before. How does it work? Do I need to be at my computer at a certain time?

You will have one full year to work through the course material, so you can truly work at your own pace — in any timezone. You will receive all the course material when you sign up. You will be invited to join live monthly Spreecast calls, and you will also have access to these calls as recorded links.

Will I be able to communicate with others during the course?

Yes, you will have access to a Private Global Facebook Community where you can connect with others and share images of your paintings. This space is open to all past and present students, and will remain open indefinitely for all Bloom True E-course students. This community provides a wonderful and inspiring place to connect and share your Bloom True experience.

How much physical space will I need?

I encouraged you to paint as big as you can — ideally on canvasses at least 24″ x 24″. You will need enough space to paint on the canvas and step away from time to time. The actual space itself can be anywhere — in your kitchen, garden, garage, or even in the park. Just remember, this can be a messy process, so you’ll want to protect your walls and floors with drop clothes or plastic sheets.

Do I need a high-speed Internet connection to view the course videos?

Yes, all videos are shot in HD and are high quality, so you will need a fairly high-speed Internet connection to view them. The videos are a vital part of the content of this course, so please do consider this. We are not able to provide alternative viewing options for people on dial-up or on very slow connections (and we cannot give refunds if you are having issues viewing the videos due to your internet connection). Therefore, please bear this in mind when registering. If you have regular broadband, you should be fine.
