Do you feel like you’re on your artistic journey on your own?

I went to art school about 30 years ago and loved it. I loved the community and direction and mentorship. Before and after art school I painted casually, and enjoyed it. But I felt like I was out on my own and really wanted support in my artistic journey.

When I started painting seriously 13 years ago, that missing support became more painful.

I took workshops (and loved them), but they were either really short, or really expensive, or both. And I still felt like some essential support was missing.

I had passion and skills and supportive friends and family, and my business was growing – collectors were buying my paintings and I was showing in nice galleries, but…

  • I missed being part of a community of artists who were on the same journey.
  • I missed having a teacher I could ask for help.
  • I missed lessons that helped me know what skills to work on next.
  • I even missed art assignments.
  • But what I missed the most was getting feedback and guidance from mentors who knew me, my art goals, and my skill level.

That’s what inspired this class.

I developed this affordable new online oil painting class so you don’t have to go it alone. It will give you the support and community that all artists need but often can’t find in their own home town.

  • You will be supported in your artistic journey by me, Jessie Rasche, an internationally collected impressionist artist.
  • You will gain confidence and freedom in your paintings.
  • You will improve your understanding of painting fundamentals and advanced techniques.
  • You will develop the skills you need to express your own artistic voice.
  • And you will make new online friends in our artist community.

Enroll for a year at a time – or join on a monthly basis and stay as long as you want. I can’t wait to meet you!

What Students Are Saying about this online oil painting class

“Your Zoom classes have been making an online painting class feel very much like a live classroom experience. I have enjoyed painting with you and I feel like I’m learning more all the time! Thank you!” K. Clark

“I can’t tell you how excited I am to find you and finally make a decision to paint again. I have been in my oil paint four days in a row.  Saturday was so fun. I loved painting with a limited palette. That was an eye opener. […]  I do believe with some guidance I can achieve what my mind envisions. Sincerely,  Anne Marie”

“I have enjoyed your online lessons….. You are a very talented artist and I’ve enjoyed  ‘meeting’ you!”  Shelley P

Resources for Students

​​1) Monthly ​lesson (uploaded to the class page, so you can watch at your leisure)​. 

The lesson will be on a fundamental topic (Getting a Great Start, Mastering Value, Mixing Clean Colors, etc.). If you would like to see the lesson presented live, join the zoom lesson. But if you miss that zoom, no worries! The lesson is available for you to watch whenever you want, and as many times as you want.

2) Monthly painting demo

This is a full length painting demo focusing on the topic of the month. You are welcome to paint along or watch and absorb the techniques shared.

​​3) Weekly zoom office hours / studio time – These are informal, unstructured get-togethers. They alternate between Thursday evenings and Saturdays to accommodate different schedules – and will occasionally be at different times as requested. Feel free to stop in for a few minutes or stay the whole time. This time is for you. 

If you have questions, bring them. If you would like any refreshers on the class content, come ask. If you’d like to paint together, bring the painting you are working on and let’s paint together. If you want to paint but are not currently working on a painting, I’ll have some source material available (not a paint-along, but shared studio time). Or just come visit. 

4) A Facebook group to ask questions and show your artwork. It’s private so only students can see posts. 

Schedule

New lessons are released on the resources web page on the second Saturday of the month, and are available from that time foreward.

Office hours alternate between Saturday at noon CST and Thursday at 6pm CST, to allow for different schedules.

If those times don’t work for you, ask questions or request critiques through the private Facebook group or through email.

Supplies

You will need a basic setup of paints. The demos are in oil paint, but some students use other types of paint.

For most lessons we will use

During the color mixing lessons we will also explore using Ivory Black and Yellow Ochre. I encourage substitutions, and you are welcome to contact me with any questions or to request a lesson on setting up to paint.

For a limited time, get your first month of this great ongoing class for only $20. You can cancel any time, but I think you’re going to love it and want to stick around. Or enroll for a full year to save even more.
