What you'll do

Art is a beautiful tool, and wonderful expressive outlet for everyone. It's a soothing vacation for your brain, and helps to connect. Join me for an unforgettable art experience bringing you the magic of California from the comfort of your own home. We will paint images that truly capture the area, and make you feel like you're right here with us. No experience needed!

Crystal will teach you a variety of techniques including blending, splatter, texture and shading. Your finished art piece can be inspired by beautiful views of California , the Hollywood sign, sunsets on the beach , and Disneyland.

Class will take about an hour from start to finish. We will start with some fun introductory questions to get to know each other. Talk about color related to moods and expressions. Learn + practice holding the brush with pencil grip. Use first and then approaches with our steps. Next, move into a simple painting class. We will take a group picture in the last 5 minutes.

You will need the basics:
Internet access, and this experience is online.
Canvas or Paper
Two brushes (small rounded + medium flat are preferred)
Paper towel and water cup
Optional, but not needed: Easel and Apron

With over 10 years of experience, thousands of classes taught, and even painting with TV celebrities, Crystal's unique approach helps even complete beginners leaving with something they can be proud of.

Having a daughter on the Autism Spectrum, I developed a love for art. We found that art was a beautiful creative outlet that also allowed for a voice that was not being heard. I fell in love with art even more, and started teaching professionally. I emphasize on fine motor, and small steps to make for a easy hour of fun and learning. We use this experience to give ALL individuals a voice. 13 years later, and I am still as passionate about teaching as I was on day one.

I have received nothing but 5 Star reviews my entire professional career.

As a bonus, I donate 50% of all proceeds that I raise to local nonprofits for children on the Autism Spectrum. Together, we have made a huge difference in multiple communities. This is why I love what I do, and would look forward to sharing my experiences with you and your group or family.

Wow! Where to begin. I'm so happy the date I asked for was available. Crystal was so kind and personalized the theme for a small bachelorette. (It was Disney's Aladdin theme) It was such a fu n experience, and amazing to see how we were all able to follow along at our varied art skills. What I loved the most was Crystal starting off our paint session with, "Be nice to yourself." It completely set the mood for that event. I will 100% recommend anyone looking for a great virtual paint class!

Crystal is amazing! My friend and I loved taking this art experience together. It was wonderful to learn more about our host and the beautiful places of California. We decided on painting a cliff-side sunset and had a great time.
