Welcome to "Art Stories" - an online course designed to help you unravel the intricate dance between your life and your artistry. This inspiring journey will guide you in appreciating the unique tales you carry and celebrating them through your creativity.

Your Stories are worth telling! Even the most ordinary day carries indefinite amount of resource for your art. This course will help you see it!

Embrace the power of your narrative and learn how to vividly express it through various forms of mixed-media art, as we explore the beautiful intersection of life and art.

What is Art Stories?


We've gathered some fantastic mixed-media art teachers to share their stories with us through the themes of home, books and junk. Not only will you get some personal insight into the lives of these lovely ladies, but each video is an in-depth lesson in how they create, each style distinct from the other so you will experience a wide range of learning.

You'll learn about layering paints, collaging, building with craft plastic, landscape composition, blending watercolours, and a lot more.

Here's what's included in Art Stories:

Let's Begin at Home...



The amazing Finnabair will start us off by treating us with a lesson on home. She tells us the story of moving into a new home and inspiring us to collect and create stories of places where we live. Finnabair will show us step-by-step how she created this charming old-fashioned character study of her house, even incorporating parts of the house! This mixed-media project is full of dimension and texture.


Mystele...

... shares with us what home means to her, centred around the people you grow to love. In this session she inspires us to make art about being a home for others. Mystele teaches us how layering can make art easier and the final outcome more characterful.

Nicole...

... takes us for a walk in the beautiful mountains where she lives. She shares how this both grounds and inspires her. Before teaching us how to make a gorgeous collaged wall-hanging that is inspired by the scenery around our home.

Cat...

... shares with us some childhood memories that she associates with home. She then will teach us how to build our own 3D house with craft plastic as an emblem to what we consider home to be.

Then, we'll move onto Books...


Mystele...


... talks all about intuitive art practice and why she chooses to create in this way. She's shows in detail how she made the piece "Stories Connect Us" using a cardboard base and layers of mixed media.

Nicole...


... gives some great advice on mini watercolour paintings, as she shows us how to paint a landscape to gift to a free outdoor library (or any library)!

Cat...


... changes our perspective on what a book can be! She will teach us how to find the potential in any old thing through transforming both an old phone case and a wooden bobbin into an accordion book and a scroll, adorned in her favourite mixed media techniques.

And Finally, Let's Have Some Fun with Junk!


Mystele...



... is artistically interested in birds at the moment, and lets us witness how she finds such beautiful animals in old scraps of rubbish! This mixed-media collage project is the essence of Mystele's freeing style of art.

Nicole...



... will teach us how to make landscape postcards. She does this through the mindful process of turning junk and chaos into order and beauty. She also shares a lovely anecdote on how she got into making art from junk at a young age.


Cat...



... shares some great tips on the principles of design - how to create a balanced composition between elements of... yes, junk! By the end of this you may become a fellow junker, knowing how to make objects "that have no business being together" work harmoniously.
