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

It's beginning to look a lot like Halloween!!!

Join me as we create in our journals all things creepy and cute. We will be using lots of layers of acrylic paint and scraping back into the background. My intention for this class is for everything to look distressed and "undone". Using the wedge and key card, we'll create happy accidents and stay away from being tidy. We will sketch and do backgrounds and lift paint. Are you ready to journal, creepy cute style?!?

  • Class begins September 16th

  • nearly 4 hours of video content
  • 11 videos

Is this class beginner friendly ?   This class is for all levels.  My advice if you've never painted faces is to start with  Draw and Paint a Girl  and/or Penelope before this class. (or at least one of my faces classes)

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

Do I need all the supplies on the supply list? No, I am all about using what you have on hand.

Will there be a Facebook group? No sorry. we will share in the classroom and through instagram.

SUPPLY list will be emailed to you upon signup.
