SMArt Art Academy – Foundations Course

Master the Basics and Learn How to Apply the Knowledge To Your Art!

Our Foundations Course is designed for self-taught artists, to enhance your skills, conquer creative blocks and elevate your art!

Are you a self-taught artist struggling to find your own artistic style?

Do you feel like you’re lost in a sea of techniques and tutorials, feeling like you’ve missed something?

Are you on the hamster wheel of creation but feel like you’re simply not moving forward?

I hear you! 

This is why, after taking many courses and studying with several amazing artists, I condensed all the basics into one course.

In this 6 week course you’ll gain a solid foundation in essential art principals and techniques.

Not only will you gain the grounding knowledge that many self taught artists miss but you will learn how it applies to your art, helping you to break free from creative blocks and elevate your art.
Enrolment on the Foundations Course is currently closed.
