DANIELLEDONALDSON.COM ONLINE CLASSROOM

"I have taken many online art classes. Danielle Donaldson is by far the best instructor I have ever had. She spends a lot of time preparing and breaking down her artistic process into bite-sized chunks that make it easy to understand. Every single class I have taken from her has inspired me and helped me to grow and develop my skills in a different way. She makes the classes fun and yet manages to convey so much information about the process of developing your art. No matter what your level, she will help guide you in advancing your skills. She packs so much into each class - each class is filled to the brim with handouts, inspiration, detailed instructions, and tons of creativity. She continues to inspire me with each new class and always finds something new to teach. You will not be disappointed!"

COLLABORATIVE COURSES

"Attending an in-person workshop with Danielle Donaldson is informative, creative and fun! Danielle presents her in-person workshops in an easy-to-understand approach that artists of all skill levels can follow and enjoy. She fosters creativity and growth through a relaxed and collaborative environment. It is inspiring to watch Danielle demonstrate her process in real-life and then provide the guidance and support for us to make it our own. Danielle connects with each attendee of her workshop and offers personalized advice and suggestions. At the end of the workshop I have always gained new skills, created beautiful art and connected with some of the most caring and thoughtful like-minded individuals. Daniel’s workshops always fuel my creative “fire” and I go home inspired to create more art. I have attended her workshops for 3 years in a row, and look forward to future opportunities to study with her!"

INTO THE FOREST WORKSHOP

Only two spaces remain open in my November workshop at the amazing Donna Downey Studios in Lincolnton, NC - I hope you'll consider snatching up one of the last spots! 

This workshop will challenge you to take your composition and watercolor skills to a new level. I highly suggest this course for those who are familiar with my work, have taken lots of my online courses and are ready to be challenged in hard, but very rewarding ways.

Yay!

ARTIST NETWORK VIDEO COURSES

"I recently purchased Danielle’s The Art of Creative Watercolor-Color Schemes and learned more in this class than I had in all my years of working in the medium. She helped me find the color palette that is unique to me and explained how to incorporate it into my work. I have been a watercolor artist for 30+ years and have never looked at color (highlights/shadows/warms/colors) the way she teaches it. It was a game changer!! The is a fairly short class to watch with a very low price tag however you will get more info that you thought possible. I have watched this class several times already and will continue to go back to it. Thanks so much Danielle!"
