It’s a new year. The perfect time to announce new online art courses at Carrie L. Lewis Horse Painter.

The original courses continue unchanged. No changes in price or any of the details. You can still enroll for work-at-your-own-pace lessons in oil painting or colored pencil and finish two paintings or drawings for only $195.

One Project Courses

Beginning January 1, 2015, you can opt for an art course that walks you through one oil painting or one colored pencil drawing.

You still

  • choose your subject and the method you want to use.
  • work at your own pace.
  • get one-on-one instruction and assistance via email.

These courses are great if time is a concern or if you’re not sure you want to do two projects. They’re also perfect if you want to brush up on existing skills or try a new medium or method.

Best of all, you pay only $105!

Getting Started

Getting started is easy. Just send me an email. If you’re ready to begin immediately, I’ll send an invoice by PayPal. Lessons begin the moment I receive payment.

Flexible Classes

Work at your own pace and on your own time. Take as much or as little time to complete the course as you need. The class ends when your project is finished to your satisfaction. We observe national holidays and weekends, as well as illnesses and family events, during which times there may be delays in feedback.

Class Size

In order to provide the best teaching opportunities for every student, enrollment is limited. If you’re interested in the course, but the class is full, your name will be put on a waiting list and you will be notified for the next available opening.
