This is a great course for a using an un-traditional tool, learning about layering, and getting comfortable with the process of creating
I'm glad you are painting. This is a very stress relieving method. Scrap any frustrations away
If you are of legal age, some have found a small glass of wine helps calm the nerves.
Always be responsible, when drinking.
Continue to find creative outlets for yourself on a monthly/weekly basis 😊🎨😊

Lovejoy has taught first-time & beginner painters exclusively for the last 15 years, her "Paint Your Pet" class was the first in San Diego in 2013, and with the endorsement of the San Diego Humane Society & other local non-profit rescue groups the class became an instant hit! Her local students have helped the class grow by coming back and bringing friends. She has helped self proclaimed un-creative people find a joy in painting and see the world from a new perspective. It is from her students enthusiasm and support that Lovejoy pushed to develop this as an online course.
Lovejoy graduated from Savannah College of Art & Design in 2003. Her goal when leaving Savannah was to earn a living as an artist and to be creative and active every day. She then spent the next seven years developing her style with the palette knife and bold use of color in Sedona, AZ. “I usually don't know what my final art piece will look like when I start, only the subject and basic composition. Finding most of my creative flow within the wildlife genre, I developed a way to sculpt with paint, layer by layer. Creating a beautiful play of lights and shadows, full of unexpected colors side by side. It’s a dance, a push and pull until the form becomes whole. I find so much peace when I’m creating,” - Lovejoy.

Lovejoy currently resides in San Diego, CA and operates a studio/gallery in historic Liberty Station where she teaches painting and sells original works of art.
I was very skeptical at first about the palette knife but I'm so glad I did it. My friends and I had so much fun! Lovejoy was very encouraging and full of suggestions. You really don't need to be artistic to take the class but it really does make you feel like you are one at the end of the class!
