paint your heart and soul 2020 – course and giveaway!


Hello my friends, I am so excited to announce that I am going to be a part of the Paint Your Heart and Soul 2020 Team!

You may have already heard about this amazing course as it is one of the most popular art classes in our online art community. However, if you’ve never heard about it before, in a nutshell, this is a year-long art class with weekly lessons, where you can learn how to create exciting and new art, using different art supplies and techniques by professional artists from all around the world.

This course is great for everyone who is looking to learn (beginners and experienced artists are welcome!), explore, get inspired and to improve, and add to your artist voice!

PYHaS 2020 is the biggest edition yet! Better and improved, it includes over 65 brand new amazing downloadable video lessons (that’s more than a lesson a week, how amazing is that!!!).

You will learn how to create beautiful artwork with faces and figures, pets and birds, flowers and landscapes in different styles, such as realistic, painterly, loose and more!

This course is hosted by the artist Olga Furman of and is a collaboration of 37 international artists. All of us are looking forward to sharing our unique creative process, our knowledge, tips and tricks with you, from start to finish.

There is also a closed FB group where students are encouraged to share their progress, receive support and meet like-minded friends. Being a part of the art community has a tremendous positive effect and makes the learning process even more exciting!

In this course I’m going to provide two lessons: one of a figure in watercolours, and the second an urban building or street (both similar to the examples below).

This course starts January 2020, but the early bird registration is now open HERE and if you register by December 25th, you can purchase the course at a DISCOUNTED PRICE of $99 US (save $70 from regular price of $169!)

    It would be so therapeutic for me to be a part of your community. For me Art is such an expression of our ‘Heart Brain’, sharing and expressing with other like minded souls would be super exciting for me !! Warmly Louise 🙏☮️

    1. Hey Toni, I’d love to win a spot in PYHAS. It might be just what I need to get my brushes wet and moving again. Could it be coupled with a kick in the proverbial?

  30. I would love to win a spot – I think that by looking at the art creations I would learn so much – that it might frighten me – but if you don’t challenge yourself u never grow – doing art means so much to me – it helps me face each day with a new view – I am only a beginner but have found that art is a piece of me that was missing

  31. Have shared to my fb page and am sending hopes and wishes that I can win a place for my friend Louise. She had been hoping to attend your workshop irl for her birthday, but it looks unlikely that she can. This would be a magnificent gift for her ❤️ xxx

  32. I love your art and your relaxed flow you have in your art and videos and a chance to win a place in this art community would be super exciting.

  33. I have been a fan for many years. Your style and enthusiasm is certainly contagious. I have taken many of the Toni Burt classes and have come away a better artist because of them. LFI 2020 would be another stepping-stone to the journey of creativity I’m on. Fingers crossed, I’d love to win a spot. Jane

  34. I would just LOVE to win a seat in these amazing workshops— i go thru life with ALOT of struggles with people i love being in active drug addiction ( i am in recovery, lmost18 yrs drugfree) my MAIN distraction is ART, i love to learn & practise what i learn, i pray i get a spot, if not Ty for the chance, it is amazing anyone gets to win a spot, love your wrk Toni <3

  35. I would love to win this course. I know I have hidden talent but I dont have the money to explore my potential. I would be so appreciative if I had a chance to take a wonderful course like this one.

  36. Looking for a way to get myself painting for me in the coming year… This could be the ticket!

  37. A fabulous prize, good luck everyone,whoever wins a place will be delighted 💜
    For me it would be another step in putting my life back together after job loss and marriage break down. I’ve come a long way, but more to heal. Thanks for the chance.

  38. Shared on Facebook! I keep hoping to win free entry to one of your classes Toni! I’ve been following you for a couple of years now. I love how your art has transformed over the last couple of years to doing several different things. Very exciting!

  39. Thank you SO incredibly much for the opportunity to win!!! It would be a dream to win and this course is exactly what i need… i was using art/ craft as therapy, but this year my health, anxiety, confidence and depression took a bad hit. I haven’t been able to create or ‘do’ much at all recently (life feels empty(?) somehow when I’m not creating… ). The techniques taught by so many incredible artists would definitely inspire me & help me get back on track! THANK YOU!!! shared!

  40. Hello Toni, I’ve shared the link to my fb page. What’s not to love about this course?!?!!! I’ve never been on a year long art course adventure and it would simply be my idea of heaven to have guidance and inspiration all year through doing my heart’s joy – creating figurative art and gaining invaluable insights and skills. I’ve been suffering from a creative block but am dying to get back into my art and this would give me the inspiration to do so..fingers and toes crossed!! Thank you for extending this aweome opportunity!

  41. I would love to win a spot on this great art course, because there is so much variety on it. It has some amazing teachers too that I would love to be able to learn from.

  50. I shared on Facebook. I’d like the free spot, because I love painting but cant afford classes. This would be so wonderful.

  51. I would love to take this course. There are so many of the instructors that I love. I have posted this on Facebook.

  52. I posted on Facebook . And I saw this post from a friend on Facebook. The advertising method is working. I wish you much success. I love the internet. No, I’m not a new user. I’ve been on the internet since the 1980s. But I’m always amazed and grateful for the opportunities it gives us. When the student is ready, the teacher will appear. (Buddha) The internet gives us a lot more opportunities for that to happen. I’m ready to be challenged to move beyond my comfort level in painting. I have only used watercolors recently. Hopefully, taking this course will also help me finish up the paintings, rather than getting stuck and deciding to come back to it later.

  53. I am in love with your latest watercolor work with the female form and would like the opportunity to learn from you.

  54. I am trying to win and not just this course. I was knocked low by a genetic blood disorder. It is under control and now I am working to get my strength and energy back and my art back.

  55. I am so curious about this course! Heard about it! I am trying to find my voice in art and am always eager to learn more!

    Thanks for the opportunity with this giveaway!!

    I have shared on my FB!

  56. Wow! What a wonderful group of artists & artists in the making. It would be an honor to be chosen to receive a spot in this group. I’m changing my pallet from plants/trees as a landscape designer to paints, pencils & other mix media. I’ve always loved getting my hands dirty. Looking forward to a new adventure in the world of arts 2020.

  57. Would love the opportunity to learn and grow & get better with my art. Sharing to FB. Good luck everyone!

  58. Shared on Facebook.

    I picked up a paint brush only 5 years ago and have been captivated ever since. At the age of 58, I enrolled in university as a part-time Fine Art student. However, I feel I would learn so much more from this wonderful line up of teachers, mediums and methods.

  85. Hi Toni,
    I would very much love too be part of this group…I’ve seen your work and would like to learn from you and your fellow artists. My sister in law has this class and I’ve seen how inspiring it! Unfortunately, were down to one income so it’s hard for me to afford any artists lessons. I have sent it forward on Facebook. Thank you for this opportunity! Sincerely, Robyn J.

  86. Shared on fb. The lineup of teachers for next year is amazing! And I can’t wait to learn more from you! Thanks for the chance to win a spot.

  87. First, thank you Toni for your amazing talent and for choosing to share it with the world. As for what I would like to win…I’ve been suffering from debilitating depression and anxiety for 25 years. Plenty of compounding trauma in there. I’ve been on a journey to find and hopefully heal my broken parts this past year, and art is a large part of that. Winning this gift would be incredible because it would give me the opportunity to continue on that path. Unfortunately, Lady Luck is never on my dude. Thank you again. Bless you and whomever wins.

  88. I would love to learn from all these amazing creative people. Because of 2 battles with cancer my financial resources have pretty much dried up so I live on a meager income and spend a lot of time watching and taking advantage of free tutorials. I just wonder what it would be like to take a real class with full instructions and to top it off I would have a year to work on it 🙂 I have already learned so much from you Toni and I love your style. Thanks so much for this opportunity

  89. Thanks for the opportunity! The teachers are so amazing – so many of my favorites are here and I welcome the chance to learn from all of them. I shared on my Facebook story feed and on your Facebook post. Good luck to all – keeping my fingers crossed!
