Bonjour friends 🙂 I can’t wait to share with you some of the techniques and tips I’ve found helpful in painting bold, expressive, colorful and “free” portraits…who better to inspire us on our journey to painting freely and expressively than Frida Kahlo?

Art hopes. Art Helps. Art Heals…piece by piece.

I believe that we were all born creative with a desire to connect with one another and that art is a conduit for connection and healing. I’ve had the privilege of experiencing this firsthand with so many lovely and inspiring people through creating my art, teaching, taking online classes and being a part of various creative groups…it’s enriched and changed my life profoundly!

I began my expressive art journey a few years ago during an online intuitive painting course I was taking. I was immediately drawn to painting people, especially in this spontaneous and free style. I feel alive and deeply connected to the person I’m trying to capture though the paint. This process also heightens my self awareness and allows me the opportunity to share pieces of my soul with the viewer that I’m unable to express otherwise…it’s often a spiritual experience for me. I’m extremely grateful for this gift.

Feet, what do I need them for when I have wings to fly?

-Frida Kahlo


In this colorful course, we will be gaining a deeper understanding of color and value and how they are used to express emotion and form in our figurative paintings. We will challenge ourselves with exciting mark-making tools and activities that will help identify our own unique visual voice. We’ll also learn some helpful photo & selfie-taking tips and explore some fun photo apps to boost our creativity and generate fresh ideas and images to work from for our paintings.

This course contains a warm-up activity, three main lessons and a bonus project. We will complete a Frida Tribute piece, paint an unconventional selfie-portrait and create a mixed-media painting using a photo reference of a whole figure and collage.

By the end of this course you will have an understanding of the following concepts:

  • How to begin a figurative painting by drawing out the face or figure first using a simple grid method.
  • Mix your own warm and cool colors and identify their values by creating a simple value chart using your colors.
  • Successfully incorporate color into your portraiture by adjusting your colors to match the values in your portrait.
  • How to take fun and interesting photos of you others for inspiration
  • Use apps to layer photos on your iPhone or iPad to to generate fresh ideas and images to work from for your artwork.
  • How to identify colors and marks that “feel” authentic to you and your own individual style
  • Paint a portrait using the direct painting method
  • Embellish a portrait by incorporate collage and other multi-media materials

During the week of the course I will be actively involved with the class via the Facebook group and I will continue to be available to you well after the week is over. So don’t worry if you are not able to finish the projects during that first week- I’ll be here for you for as long as you need me to be. You will have lifetime access to this course and I will be by your side to guide you through the process, every step of the way 🙂

    I loved this class! Jennifer has such a warm, real way of teaching, that she really made me believe I could do it! Her technique is so free and colorful and I am amazed at her art! Great tips on creating an abstract face using apps on your phone! I love watching her create and learning to use vibrant colors as shadow and light in my paintings. What a fun class!!!! You will LOVE IT!!!!
