Take Time to Make

with Olive Green Anna



Limited Spaces: 100

In just a few months ……you’ll overcome your reluctance to #taketimetomake

I will be focusing on overcoming the problems keeping us from art making. I will share my personal exercises and practices that I have used to get out of creative block and to get started making again.

By the end, you will lose a bit of that inner critic and let go in your art making practice. you will have the tools to live out your artistic desires. I will be touching on composition and art theory as well as sharing ways in which I practice expression, play and experimentation.

Mixed media abstract painting is the most freeing and expressive painting technique that I have found. Over the past 3 years I have developed my own style, learned so much about myself and materials and had the pleasure of selling my work to collectors all over the world.

In this class, I will be guiding you through the early struggles that we have, when getting back into the studio and experimenting with my own style.

I will share my process and story about how I was able to take time to make things I have been wanting to make for a long time. Starting out, or getting back into an art making is a tough phase for a budding artist.

Preorder opens on November 1st, the course will go live January 1st, 2019,

At art shows and on instagram, I get questions like…

How do you start a work? What keeps you going back into the studio? Where do you get your ideas? How did you make this? What gives art worth? How do you know when you are done with a piece? How do you fight perfectionism?

I am going to answer all these questions and more…


Who is this course for?

If you want to make art and let go a bit in life and in your art this is a course for you.

I want to make art again, but are struggling to know where to get started.

All the fears that flood in to my brain just before making art. “I’m not an artist.” “The work I make isn’t going to be good anyway.” “What’s the use of painting and making art?” “I don’t have time to make art.” “I don’t have space to make art.”

Life’s too short… dive into a creative desire you have and take your curiosity seriously.

There is no experience necessary for you to have success and fun in this e-course. No matter whether you studied art, have not made anything since grade school, and even (especially) if you hated art class, this course is for you. As long as you have a strong desire to make and creatively play, this is the right course for you.


I’m not an artist, I can’t paint, or draw

This was me, growing up, and this may be you. You have a strong desire to paint but you haven’t had much success, or you fear you may fail.

Some of your pieces may turn out to be shit, but you can’t make the good stuff without making the shit first.


I don’t have any space to make art

All you need is a table top, or about 2 square meters.

Can you find two square meters?


I don’t have time

I know you and I are busy, work, family, facebook, and netflix.

We are busy, busy, busy.

But, that is all the more reason to reclaim some of that time for you.


You deserve it!

You want a little more creativity in your life. Taking time to make art, is just that, taking back the time. You may feel like you don’t have any time. Somewhere you have time, we just need to find some, claim it as your own.
