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

Messy Unmessy is a great class for beginners. It is also a great class for anyone looking to loosen up. To be messy, you must first go through the stages of painting a face....learning where the features go. Learning color placement to achieve depth and dimension. Once you nail that part of the process down, you are ready to loosen up and get messy. You'll figure out what best suits your style and which one of the processes you enjoy the most. Or is it somewhere in between.....or messier or unmessier...????

Is this class beginner friendly ?  YES! This class is a fantastic first class from me. You'll get a look into my beginner face using acrylic paints and keeping things neat and tidy. This is to learn placement and color work. And then you'll see my messy process. The messy process is closer to my everyday painting process. 

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.
