Mindy Lacefield

Hi! My name is Mindy and I am inspired and paint from the nostalgia of my childhood. Channeling my inner 8 year old. Painting my dreams into reality. I teach. I learn. I play. I make mistakes. I celebrate those mistakes because they become happy, magical moments from the Divine.

About this course

Join me as we dive in watercolor and strengthen our practice with a weekly video demonstration. This class will help you if you've never worked with watercolors and always wanted to. If you've tried and just can't get the hang of it, I'll lead you through a series of fun demo's to keep your hands moving and your mind interested in where watercolors can take your art. I feel like my art and muscle memory for creating has really strengthened since I decided to make watercolor a daily practice. We will work with faces but I'll also throw in some other goodies to keep you inspired. We will be working June through December this year and I just know that you'll grow and evolve with this weekly practice. If you've always wanted to LOVE watercolor but just couldn't get the hang of it, then join this amazing group of kindreds who will be there to share and support you through the journey. I can't wait to see your creations.
