Course Description

This workshop is no longer available for sale a new and updated version is coming soon!

This workshop is designed to take the fear out of Just Beginning. I take you step by step in the starting process of creating. I walk you through supplies, composition, color, glazing, inspiration...... All the things that are needed to Just BEGIN!

This is an older workshop but all the information is still exactly what I would teach today

This is the opportunity to scratch the surface of the desires of your heart. Life is so short and the older I get the faster it goes. So don't wait another day to BEGIN.

This workshop is broken down into 8 different video sections 

  1. starting with supplies,
  2.  how to find inspiration, 
  3. choosing a substrate,
  4.  a practice section that has videos for how gesso works, 
  5. glazing,
  6.  collage, 
  7. composition and color.
  8. and a section on putting it all together to create your own master piece.

This is the piece that we create when we put it all together and you also receive this as a free download to print and frame

You will also receive a color wheel download along with some collage elements to use in your final practice piece.


Artist/Creative Soul Shawn Petite

Well Hello There! And thank you for allowing me to join you on your creative journey! My name is Shawn Petite and I’m a mixed media artist, living my dream of creating every day. I've been teaching and creating for over 26 years in many different mediums but found my art soul mate in mixed media.  I’ve been published in several magazines, I produce my own line of stencils, and create soulful and informative workshops on mixed media. But most importantly, I try every day to encourage and inspire. To show love with my paintbrush. To leave my little corner of the world a better place. One of my greatest joys is to know that I've encouraged YOU on your creative journey My favorite quote: I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel. " Maya Angelou Always know that you are loved!
