What Students Say About This Course:
"Dear Tracy, There are no words to thank you for your generosity in this chickadee painting class! You opened a different perspective and taught us everything needed, from reference photo to completion. I am so grateful for the information I learned.
I have a new toolbox with knowledge and skills that I can use! I learned amazing drawing techniques that will be invaluable in furthering my confidence in the creation of my own original art. I learned color choices, layerings, blending and pairing reasoning. I now understand how to choose between supplies.
Your class taught me by actually going through the whole process and every single thing I needed to know and do. And why’s!
I can’t say enough good things about my experience. I recommend this or any class you offer. I love the final result I got! A sweet little flying friend that I painted. Thanks so much Tracy! I’m a better artist because of this class."

"I just finished the day 1 videos -- and I am very excited to tackle this! I have absolutely no skills as an artist and all of the classes I have taken before seemed to have skipped so many steps. This is definitely clicking so far! I have some things to buy and am looking forward to tackling the next few days. And.....I'm amazed at how much work you have put into this free class.....I can only imagine how wonderful your other classes are, and I hope to take some of them in the very near future!"

"Tracy, this was a very helpful lesson. The details from the beginning to the end helped me to succeed. I must admit, I really wanted to trace the reference photo, but your method of using the pencil tip and your thumbnail convinced me to try. It really helped.
Thank you so much. I love my chickadee, even if his tail is a little off the page!"
