Kelli May-Krenz

I believe in creating everyday. For me creating is like breathing, I simply must do it. I have so many interests when it comes to creating. I love painting, stitching, graphic design, illustration and everything I can possible make in my studio. I spend my days dreaming up things that make me happy hoping that by sharing others will fill their happy up too! I like using materials that are found in nature and around our spaces. I am a huge believer in finding joy in creating with very little. I treasure my life, knowing every single day I am lucky to be here.

About this Course



I will begin with the bunny tale.

 When I was a little girl my grandpa raised bunnies. I would go over to his bunny patch and help feed, pet and love on the bunnies. 

One year for Easter my mom and dad gifted me a bunny. Black and White I named her Hoppsie. I loved her so much! I taught her how to dance in circles for a carrot and how to nest in a bed of blankets. She was my little pure loved bunny.  I have long adored bunnies and it seemed fitting to design one of my online courses around bunnies.

In this course you will learn 5 different techniques of creating a bunny. Each of these styles you will be able to use creating in your journals, paintings and other mixed media art. It is my wish that you have so much fun you can take these lessons and adventure to all sort of new places with your trusty supplies in hand.

• Over 6 hours of video lessons with lifetime access. Take at your own pace.

• PDF downloads of inspiration, tips, sources for purchasing cool stuff, lessons and bonus fun!

We will be creating bunnies using black india ink and watercolor paper, drawing with a bamboo skewer and a paint brush. We will embrace the thick and thins of line work and celebrate the random happenings! The styles that appear using a bamboo skewer versus a brush. We will not be sketching the bunny first ~ we will be playing with the discovery. We will create backgrounds for the bunny separately using acrylic paints, watercolor paper, watercolor pencils which will give us art for our bunnies to live on. Finally our little bunny or bunnies will be trimmed out with our trusty scissors and adhered to our painted background. You will have a finished art piece! Hippity Hop!!!
