Besides being a frequent contribute to EE, Kellie Day is an art educator and artist who has made art for Trader Joe’s, The North Face, and Alpinist Magazine. Now she’s created a free online class to share what she’s learned!

5 Steps Creative Women use to go from Dabbling to Pro-Quality Painting


Here’s what Kellie said about this class:

“Most artists never go from amateur to professional. They have talent, drive and ambition, yet for whatever reason, they don’t make that leap from dabbling to selling. But my art students are bucking this trend. They’re learning a step by step transformation to creating professional quality paintings, and expressing their full creative talent, regardless of past success or failures.

My method teaches you how to take your paintings from good to great, and even sale-worthy, even if your art has only been a hobby up until now.

If you want to learn how to do this, click here for a spot in my free master class! It will be the most worthwhile time you’ve spent on your art!”
