Project: Fresh Paint Online Course
Role: Visual Designer, Marketing Strategist
Problem: Internationally renowned art teacher, Flora Bowley, has taught her intuitive painting process to thousands of students for the past decade, but has found that many students were not only using the techniques but copying her style and imagery, resulting in work that was derivative and lacking in originality.
Goal: To create an online course focused entirely on finding your own style and unique creative voice.
Solution: A collaboration with local artist Lynzee Lynx to create a unique online course dedicated to experimentation and development of the artistic voice.
Over thirty professional videos featuring mixed-media art exercises, leading student through the creation of 100 paintings from start-to-finish. All videos are created in Flora’s Portland studio using the highest quality equipment, three camera angles, professional sound, and lighting.
Original audio files featuring original meditations and movement prompts to help students tune in with themselves.
Live Studio Sessions with Flora and Lynx where they answer questions, offer additional support, and create together.
Full-length interviews with other professional artists.
Seven inspiring “series” of prompts offering unique ways to approach your paintings.
A private Facebook group to stay conected to fellow students from across the world.
A Spotify playlist with art-making songs.
An online art sale for students of Fresh Paint to sell their work at the end of the course.
Outcome: 2,500+ students registered, leading to over $400,000 in revenue. The Fresh Paint online course was also turned into a book, published by Quarry Books.
