Beginner Challenge Marker Painting - Creating Beautiful Color Palettes
Join Amy Shulke, a professional illustrator and marker enthusiast for a live coloring demonstration. Real coloring in real time.
Are you ready for realistic coloring?
Online video classes are not real, at least not real in the way you assume.
The projects are planned months in advance. The lessons are tested and simplified. The demonstration is rehearsed. The footage is shot multiple times and edited for clarity. The script is….well, it’s a script!
Everything about an online art class is designed to make the project look easy and amazing.
But that's not how real art works
Vanilla Livestream breaks the production barrier, giving you a real look into the real time artistic process.
Do you have a love/hate relationship with color?
We love beautiful color and yet when it comes time to create your own color palettes for the projects you dream-up... do you panic? Or maybe you dive into every project and start coloring object by object, only to see later that your accidental color palette looks unappealing or downright childish?
Join Amy for an incredibly simple method that will take the guesswork out of creating bold, artistic, and completely original color palettes. You can create perfectly balanced, cohesive, and professional looking color palettes without breaking a sweat or even thinking all that hard. Amy and her color wheel will show you how.
Daffodils have never looked so cheerful!

"It's the OMG moments. That's why Amy's classes rock. She explains things that you've maybe noticed before but never thought much about. I love it!"
"At 62 years of age I have no illusions about becoming a great artist but. I am so appreciative of the change in my perception since taking classes with Amy at Vanilla Arts Co. Now I see the play of colors, the motion and the grace... It's a great way to view the world around me."
"Another fun class. Thanks Amy!"
