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 for a Halloween art party! We will be creating Lydia Deetz from Beetlejuice in watercolor, Sally from Nightmare before Christmas in mixed media acrylics and a primitive Witch (combining the two -->> watercolor and mixed media)

Halloween and Fall is my favorite time of year! Let's celebrate and create art inspired by these wonderful characters. 

Here's all the details:

  • Class begins September 18, 2017 (self paced after that date)
  • $49
  • 3 Projects with over 2 hours of content
  • real time creating as I walk (and talk) you through all the layers and design elements and the reason why I'm doing what I'm doing
  • lifetime access
  • Sally, Lydia Deetz, and Primitive Witch 
  • We will talk about building up soft luminous layers within the face. This is an extensive insight into how I distress and slowly build up layers within the face using marks, GAC100 acrylic polymer, and nuances of shadow building with color. (Sally is my most time intensive face I've ever done for online work!!)
