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

Christmas time is such a special time of year! I love creating work and imagery based on this beautiful holiday. Such a visual feast for the eyes. There is so much to explore and so much inspiration. The colors. The sparkle. The magic that surrounds us.

This year I am focusing on The Nutcracker. Disney is reimagining this movie and will be out on November 2nd. It looks like the most creative, eye candy, magical movie!! (so be sure and catch that movie as a bit of homework if you want!)

If I'm wanting to learn to paint faces, is this a good place to start? If you have never painted faces and want to focus on that, I would start with Draw and Paint a girl. Then you'll be ready for this class.

How long will I have access to the course? Lifetime access. Videos are downloadable

Do I need all the supplies on the supply list? No, I am all about using what you have on hand using similar materials and paint colors. My absolute must have color of paint is Quin. nickel azo gold by golden and Luminous opera by Holbein

Will there be a Facebook group? If we get over 60 students then we will have a FB group (so be sure and spread the word!)
