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!)

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

  9. 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.

  10. 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.

  11. 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!

Looking forward to a new adventure in the world of arts 2020.

    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.

  27. This looks like a great class and would love to come along for the experience. With all the amazing artists the potential learning is tremendous. Thanks for the opportunity

  28. Shared on FB…such an amazing lineup of teachers! I would love the chance to learn from all the of you. Thanks for the chance to win.

  30. Woohoo! This is the first time i’ve heard of this specific course and i’m excited to see some new artists I’m not familiar with… always looking to learn new techniques and creative strategies!

  31. 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.

  32. 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.

  33. 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.

  34. 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

  35. 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!

  36. After a major health scare, I realised life is short and I should do more of what I love. So I picked up my high school paint brushes after 30 years and got painting. I’d live some classes to help focus me love Mxx

  37. I would love to win a spot in the next PYHAS to keep learning about all the different techniques each artist offers. Thanks for the chance Toni x
