Does your art need a bit of a shake up?
Are you wishing you could stop defaulting to realism,
even if that’s not what you’re aiming for?
Do you look at the work of other artists and wonder
how they seem to express themselves so freely?
If this all sounds familiar, Free Up Your Art might be a great next step for you.
It might seem hard to believe, but freedom in your art is possible for you, and it most likely isn’t as difficult as you imagine.
With a few fresh ideas that are easy to follow and have huge scope for personalization, you can go from stuck in a tightly painted corner to exuberantly expressive art in a very short time.
THIS COURSE IS FOR YOU IF:
You’re feeling frustrated with the tightness of your paintings and drawings
You don’t have loads of time but would like some fresh ideas to shake things up
You love to take a simple idea and play with it to make it your own
You’re looking for a taster of how your work could develop more freely
You’re worried you’re not ‘good enough’ at art to go beyond attempts at realism
You have a few stuck paintings that could use a bit of new life injected into them
“I have been away from painting for a bit and thought this would be just the thing to push away the jitters and get the brain working again. I wasn’t wrong. You [can] start the day with a bunch of art ideas to think through while you run through life. That in itself sets you up for success. The lessons provide very actionable ideas that you can implement as is or twist up based on your style. All the ideas are delivered in Tara’s encouraging voice, pushing you just a little bit with every step.”
7 simple, easy, and most importantly fun lessons, designed to get you loosening up and exploring new possibilities!

About your guide
I’m Tara, your friendly artist, teacher, and creative encourager. 🙂
I believe that deep down we all want our art to be a true expression of who we are and how we experience the world. My courses are about uncovering that part of us and allowing our art to reveal it. It takes time and perseverance, but it’s entirely possible.
I used to find myself continually frustrated by my apparent inability to make the kind of expressive, free art I knew was inside me. Like many, I was taught that realism was what proved you were ‘good at art’, and while that stood me in good stead in many ways, it wasn’t where I wanted to stay.
Over the past decade I’ve been exploring, experimenting, and making a lot of mess in the name of freedom of artistic self expression. I’ve picked up a few ideas along the way, and this short free course shares some of those with you. It gives a taster of how just a few simple tweaks can really shake up your practice and help you see your work – and the path ahead – in a new way.
“Tara’s instruction is clear and her voice is very encouraging.”
“Thank you for this course, I’m really enjoying it! Great, simple and effective exercises to explore your free expression in painting. All Tara’s courses have this characteristic. I was glad to add a piece to this fascinating path of making your paintings more ‘yours’.”
