So happy you found your way to this page and I hope you will join me in this adventure of creative inspiration to light up your world with more mojo in all areas!! To read more about the e-course itself, please visit the “About the ecourse page here”

The big question is whether you are going to be able to say a hearty yes to your adventure.” ~ Joseph Campbell

I’ve tried to read your collective minds to answer any questions that may arise so read on, sign up, get your messy paint clothes ready, give your inner critic a little holiday and I’ll see you in class.

How will the e-course work?

The e-course will be hosted on a private website which will contain all videos, PDFs, exercises, prompts and other creative musings.

“Paint Mojo, the e-course, The journey begins” will begin as soon as registration is complete!

Community is a huge part of creative growth and our Paint Mojo FB group will be our gathering place. A place to both allow yourself to be seen and in being open to receive and give encouragement to others. I always tell my students that we are all teachers and students for each other and I look forward to learning as much from you all as you do from me. We’re on this magical journey together <3

All content will be fully downloadable!!

Is Paint Mojo suitable for any level?

Absolutely!! I have been teaching my in person Paint Mojo workshops to sold out classes around the world for the past two years! Both beginners and more experienced painters have enjoyed epiphanies in creative process, shifted perspectives and enjoyed learning new techniques. Mostly though I have come to realize that what I am teaching is about how to see the creative possibilities inherent in very moment and then to learn ways to process and translate those moments in our own artistic voice….AND to FREE UP and not be STUCK!!

“Love this class. I definitely have my mojo back, for which I am grateful… As is my family. Thanks Tracy” Julee Herrman

What will I need to participate?

A basic supply list will be supplied upon registration. In my practice I often work with a small select range of whatever is at hand. Except for my trusty Golden fluid acrylics and Daler Rowney F& W acrylic artists inks, I am not fussy about brands. I often find inspiration in thrift store/ op shop finds and fabrics and will encourage you to do the same.

There will be a number of high quality videos included in the course so please check your internet connections to make sure that you are able to access this content as it is pivotal to the course. Refunds cannot be made after registration.

How will the class content be structured?

Class content will be delivered in a number of ways. Each week there will be a video which will follow the process of one of my own large paintings from start to finish. I will share with you my techniques and process as the work unfolds.

You will also be with me in my studio each week as I explore possibilities, sharing both techniques I use often and branching out in new directions (via weekly videos, prompts and PDF’s). One of the things I love most is to venture into new creative territory for the first time. Curiosity and wonder and new discovery is one of the most exciting parts of the creative process and of life in general for me and I am excited to have you all join me in my home and studio.

There will also be weekly forays into ways to find inspiration, excursions through my sketchbook and pep talks to enhance your creative world.

“Tracy, I love the variety and content of this course, the challenges and the surprises & that each lesson is packed with variety so that I can choose where to begin & feel the abundance in each week” Christine O’brien

Those of you who have read my book Paint Mojo will know that I am very open and love to share stories so you can expect to be welcomed wholeheartedly into my world. Mi casa es su casa with glimpses into our home and projects inspired by some of my favorite things which I hope will inspire you to be inspired by the treasures in your lives also.

“This was a wonderful e-course that met and exceeded my expectations! You have been very generous with the information and time you have shared with us, both in the course works as well as in this FB group” Anna Maria Stone

The course will be structured around weekly themes designed to help you become more free, embrace the accidental and the imperfect, find space to breathe and cultivate more calmness and clarity, learn to shift perspectives and stimulate creative and innovative thought and to live in a state of gratitude.

“We do not grow absolutely, chronologically. We grow sometimes in one dimension, and not in another; unevenly. We grow partially. We are relative. We are mature in one realm, childish in another. The past, present, and future mingle and pull us backward, forward, or fix us in the present. We are made up of layers, cells, constellations.” ~Anais Nin

“Thank you for sharing your talents, love, & kind encouragement with us in these wonderful weeks. You have helped us to create our own “rainbows of possibilities”. Lizbeth Dvorak

Is this course for me?

Are you ready to tap into your own wellspring of luscious creativity? Are you ready to be guided, not so much with step by step instructions and predetermined projects, but with videos, prompts and exercises designed to inspire you to follow your own intuition, spark your own inspiration, and candid glimpses into the creative happenings that unfold as I follow my own.

Materials List

Please take a look at the materials list here

If the answer is YES I invite you to come on a journey with me, one of vibrancy and playfulness, freedom and fearless exploration.

I invite you to come and discover the beauty of your own story.

Is this e-course different to your in person workshop and/or the projects in your book?

All content in the Paint Mojo e-course is fresh and new. I like to keep things moving and get bored easily so this means I’m always changing things up and finding new inspiration and new ways to create. I hope I can pass that on to you!

Do I have to do all the assignments in order?

Feel free to jump around, pick and choose, go where your fancy takes you. I encourage it! We’re all at different places in our creative journey and we should totally honor that!

What if I can’t keep up?

No pressure at all. All content will be available for you to download, so you will have plenty of time to play!

Do I need to buy everything on the supplies list

No way! I often use whatever I have on hand and have tried to keep the supplies down. If you have a limited budget would urge you to go a little wild with the F&W Daler Rowney artists inks and some cheap heavy bodied student white acrylic, a few water colour pencils in dark colours and some cheap student oil pastels. You can always build a wish list for later as you watch the videos.

Do I need high speed internet?

It will help alleviate frustration ☺

Can I share?

Please be mindful that this is a private course for those who have registered and paid. Please do not share the links. This is not fair play and I know you will respect that ♥

You can however share snippets of your work and excitement on your blog and other social network sites. That is totally cool ☺

Can I exhibit or sell the work I create in this workshop?

One of my main intentions in this course is to help you find ways to connect with a style all of your own so with this in mind I’m happy for you to show and sell original, innovative work created. If however you feel that you want to follow along more closely and produce pieces very similar to those within the projects that is all good but would ask that you don’t put those pieces out to exhibit or sell if they are close copies of my work. I trust that your heart will tell you what is too close ♥

Is there a refund policy?

Once you have registered for the course we are unable to offer a refund.

Am I able to take what I have learnt in this class and write about it in an article for publication or teach the methods myself?

I have spent a lifetime gathering; ideas, techniques, perceptions, values, trying things, succeeding, failing, persevering. I bring all of this to the table when I teach and I ask that you honor that journey and your own by creating your own unique content when teaching or creating and that if you pick up a thing or two from me that you would like to incorporate into your own repertoire that you give credit when doing so. Thank you ♥
