It’s so important to have fun with your art! 

Maybe it’s been a while since you made art, or perhaps you are feeling confused about your art direction. We often get caught up in procrastination and over-thinking when the best solution is simply to start. To start simple and follow your instincts!

To help with this, I've created the Painting for Fun Challenge. The challenge includes 10 playful painting prompts.

For each prompt, there is an accompanying video to get the sparks going, and as you create, I’ll be encouraging you to embrace the idea of having an “anything goes” sketchbook. You’ll also find other mojo-boosting ideas in the Q&A and Vlog. 

Are you itching to make art, but don’t know where to start? 
Struggling to maintain a consistent creative practice?
Looking for a way to make art that feels accessible and joyful?
Tired of feeling hesitant and second-guessing your creative choices?
Wanting to learn more about mixed-media painting?

If you answered yes, you are in the right place.

This course is a mojo-boosting creativity activator!!

What is the Creative Blend Art Program?

This class is part of the Creative Blend Art Program. The CB Program is designed to help you establish a consistent art practice while digging in deep with what lights you up and makes your work unique.

The program is running from April 2022 through until March 2023.

A new class is released each month exploring a theme. From developing your style to building confidence with colour, rest assured, this is a jam-packed program!

The program has a different feel to my other classes and includes a rich combination of painting videos, Q&As, art supply deep dives, guest artist interviews, and so much more. All in a cosy, relatable and easy-to-digest format.

It is more like the style of content you might get in a membership or Patreon, but the content is set up so that each module can be enjoyed as a stand-alone mini class with LIFETIME ACCESS! Scroll down to see what's in this module.

Let's take a closer look at ...

Painting for Fun

Q & A Session

We all experience creative blocks from time to time. It’s not always easy to get started, and weeks can turn into months.

In this video, I am sharing my top 7 tips for getting your creative mojo back. These tips are very practical and are things that I have been implementing myself over the past few months to better navigate the ebb and flow of creativity.

Painting Videos

In the main painting project, we'll be embracing the idea of having an "anything goes" sketchbook.

You'll get access to 10 delicious painting prompt videos to inspire your sketchbook practice.

In the lessons, we'll be exploring ideas such as texture, negative space, linework, symbolism, and more!

Studio Vlog

Trying out a new art supply is a great way to get your creative juices flowing. In the Vlog, you will see me using a gel press for the first time.

It was so much fun creating these collage papers and they certainly came in handy during the sketchbook challenge!

Plus, collage is such a great medium for getting back into the swing of things with your art.

Art Supply Deep Dive

I’ll be talking you through my favourite sketchbook supplies and sharing tips for layering with mixed-media. You’ll learn about acrylics, watercolour, collage, pencils, pens, and more.

It’s a great mixed-media introduction or refresher!

Love from past students……

Bree Edge

I don't think it is too bold of me to say that my art improved immediately. I now have people regularly asking to purchase my work, which is incredibly rewarding. These classes have helped to feed my creativity immeasurably, and I am forever hanging out for the next one!

Laura presents incredibly useful tips in a structured way, while still providing space and encouragement for students to pursue their own creative instincts. I used to think abstracts were beyond me, and thanks to Laura, I now only paint abstracts! I’ve watched all her classes literally countless times, and yet each time, I still find something new.

Laura Horn is a brilliant teacher. I have taken all of her classes. They are like meditation to me and have given me skills in mixed media, abstracts, botanicals and so much more. I am waiting eagerly for her new course to begin. 

I've had the joy and privilege of teaching over 25,000 students across the globe through my online classes.

Meet Laura, your teacher

Hello, I'm Laura

I'm a mixed media artist from Adelaide, South Australia. Ten years ago, I picked up a paintbrush. I had two young children, and like many mothers, I felt a little lost among all the nappies.

As soon as I reconnected with my creativity, I felt a spark. I quickly fell in love with all things art. The yummy supplies, the supportive community, and the sense of purpose and satisfaction that came from doing something I truly loved.

I followed my passion and built a beautiful, messy life around it. Things rarely went to plan, but I amazed myself with the things that I could do. From selling my work at markets and cafes to running a retreat in Bali, right through to hosting a top-rated art podcast.

Tapping into my creativity gave me clarity and confidence, and it can do this for you too.

Frequently Asked Questions...

Do I have to buy all the Creative Blend classes?

No, each class can be enjoyed as a stand-alone class. I will be releasing a class on the first day of each month for a year, beginning April 1. Each class is $37. I will be leaving the classes up on my website as instant access classes for the duration of the program. You will be able to pick and choose classes based on your creative interests.

Do I have a limited amount of time to access this program?

The course comes with lifetime access. There is no time limit so you don't need to worry about missing out. You can log into the Teachable classroom at any time to view the videos or you can download the content onto your device.

What is included and how long are the videos?

See section above to view the curriculum and video duration for this specific class.

What level is the course suitable for?

This course is suitable for anyone that has an interest in mixed media painting. The program caters for complete beginners through to more experienced artists. If you are a beginner the Art Supply Deep Dive is going to be very helpful. If you are more experienced, you might be familiar with the supplies but there will be plenty of fresh perspectives shared through the Cosy Studio Chat/Q&A, Studio Vlog and Painting Sessions.

Do I need to have all the art supplies? I'm just getting started and have a limited budget.

The Creative Blend Art Program is very flexible. You can substitute supplies for almost all of the lessons and I am happy to suggest alternative options.

With this in mind, there isn't a specific supply list. Instead, I have created a page on my website with all the supplies I routinely use.

My suggestion would be to watch the module first and then decide on your supply choices.

Will there be an online community for this course?

Yes, you will be invited to join the private Creative Blend Art Program Facebook Group. The Facebook Group is optional as all course content will be posted in Teachable, but if you want to share your work and ask questions, Facebook will be the main platform for participant interaction.
