A Creative Pracitce Is Nourishment FOR THE ARTIST SOUL

As a teacher with 25+ years of experience under my apron, I am devoted to helping artists like yourself:

  • Establish and deepen a studio practice -- one that sticks and feels juicy.
  • Identify and understand  your unique visual language.
  • Strengthen your creative voice and take more risks.
  • Learn valuable techniques, tools, and approaches to art making.
  • Create art that makes your cells sizzle.

I help artists be artists.

And It All Begins With A Healthy Creative Practice !

Currently I offer three forms of online education:
self-paced eCourse, time-bound workshops, & online classes.

My eCourses are self-paced and students receive immediate access to all of the eCourse content at once. Students are encouraged to work through the course content at their own pace and share their artwork with their peers in the private classroom held online at the Paint Wisdom™ Studio.

My workshops are held during a specific time frame where I provide daily feedback, guidance, and support. The course content is delivered weekly and accompanied by weekly live Zoom calls held for demos, Q&A, and discussion. Students are encouraged to work through the course content at the prescribed pace, but there is ample time after the workshop is finished to complete the coursework before the private classroom held online at the Paint Wisdom™ Studio closes.

My classes are held weekly LIVE on Zoom.  To be a recipient of the content, community, and support you must participate live each week.  My online classes also come with a private virtual classroom for sharing and staying connected throughout the week as well.

In my eCourses, workshops, & classes you will...

Be invited to embody the truth of who you are as an artist and gain a solid understanding of the mystical and practical mechanics of your unique creative process. Expect to be challenged as well as celebrated, held, and inspired.

NEVER be asked to follow step-by-step instructions. In other words, your painting will NOT look like mine or anyone else’s. I saturate each workshop and retreat with heart-opening, insightful instructions on embodying the creative process and crafting your life as an artist.  My programs are designed to get you painting deeper than ever before and loving the marks that are 100% your own!

Find yourself immersed in a supportive, warm environment to explore your creative process and express yourself openly. You’ll be heard, seen and loved for exactly who you are and how you’re showing up! All skill levels and backgrounds are welcomed. The only requirement is a true, sincere desire to Paint FEARLESS®!

Kind words from my beloved students

Connie has this way of knowing exactly what you need before you know you need it.  After seven years of art education I have never come across an instructor like her before. She is my absolute favorite teacher. She teaches more than how to create beautiful works of art, you are taught how to be in the world as an artist.

I have attended several classes and retreats with Connie Solara, and I can’t sing her praises loud enough! She is such a dynamic personality, you really have to experience her to understand! Connie is a remarkably talented artist, but she is also so much more. She is the most incredible teacher, leader, and gatherer of women that I have ever had the honor and privilege of working with.

Connie has an amazing way of encouraging and allowing an unfolding. This unfolding supports a flow and a unique body of work that reflects the feminine and its place in the world.

Connie’s personal genius is not only her beautiful art but the way in which she guides her students through the creative process. She is truly masterful. She created a safe, nourishing space to push and question and explore and feel. I left the experience with a richer sense of the “why” behind my art and a vision of where I’m heading next. I can’t thank her enough for that gift.
