Do you want to improve your painting techniques, without compromising on fun?
Are you in a painting rut – repeating the same mistakes and not really improving?
Do your eyes glaze over when you stare at a blank canvas and wonder where to start or what to paint?
Does your inner critic speak a little too loudly?
Are you terrified that your friends and family will cringe when you show them your art?
Are you struggling to find a style that feels like it’s the right fit?
Do you have money tied up in art supplies that are getting dusty and crying out to be used?
Have you always liked art, but life got in the way, and think that maybe now’s the time to get into painting?

If any of these thoughts or questions have been running through your head, I might be able to help.
I don’t claim to know everything about painting – no one does. I’m still learning everyday. But I have helped a few hundred students over the last decade to become better painters – by creating classes that are both educational and fun. Students have ranged from complete beginners to semi-professional, working in abstraction or realism – which I both love. The thing that excites me most is the creative process – how amazing it is to see how we express ourselves so differently.

I’ve been painting all my life, and yes, it sometimes IS a challenge to find the time for it. Believe me, I’ve had my dark periods of self doubt too, so I understand your struggles. Finding the courage to create is not easy. You have to be brave. I’ve learned the hard way, but time, determination, and investing in learning has made me a respected artist, and has brought me some financial success and recognition.

My passion for teaching, and sharing what I know, has pushed me to create an innovative 6 module online course called GET CREATIVE with KATO! that combines education with fun.

Unleash your inner Picasso! I want to inspire you, boost your confidence, and help you find your unique visual voice. To improve though, you need to combine play with some technical know how, and be brave to explore the unknown.

My course is structured through a framework I created called SHOW, TELL and PLAY.
EACH OF THE 6 MODULES WILL EXPLORE AN ART PRINCIPLE: line, shape, colour, value, composition and texture. Within each module you will learn techniques and be given lots of ideas to kick-start your painting (for example: mixing colour, composition ideas, using a palette knife, or working wet on wet).

Class notes will be given for you to download as a resource. Learn at your own speed. All skill levels welcome. Your creative juices will flow, and we’ll have fun every step of the way.

EACH MODULE has 3 EDUCATIONAL VIDEOS, available for you to watch in your own
time, as many times as you want.

“SHOW” A mini art talk with commentary showing both contemporary and historic paintings to demonstrate the art fundamental. Make some popcorn!

“TELL”An instructional demo video to showcase the module’s technique and principle.

“PLAY”An inspirational tutorial video outlining corresponding exercises for you to paint in any style. Try out new ideas and experiment!

This course is online, watchable on your phone, tablet or computer. You will have access to the material FOR LIFE.
