Celtic Collective - Maiden's (Beginner) Classroom
If you're new to art, start here!
Karen Campbell (Awesome Art School owner) has been teaching art both in-person and online since 2011. She focuses her efforts on making sure students are having fun so that they will want to learn and practice more! Her styles and mediums vary widely (which makes it fun for both her and her students!) and loves to come up with "systems" for layering and drawing to make learning easy! She has written, illustrated and published over two dozen art-related books/journals. Since founding her Awesome Art School in 2015 she has impacted the lives of tens of thousands of students through her educational art books, YouTube videos and courses and memberships. She is a native of New England and currently lives in North Carolina with her husband, Sean, 3 boys, dog, Maggie and 3 feline besties (Rosie, Zoe and Tippie!).
Lucy Brydon (Lucy's Art Lab owner) taught for 15 years as a primary school art specialist before venturing off to make and sell her art full-time. She has taught adults both online and in-person for 7 years and specializes in gelli printing, watercolor and gouache. Her artwork is inspired by Scottish folklore, fairy tales, nature and illustrations. She lives in Scotland surrounded by ancient magical forests and ruined castles and with cat, Sabby and her grown-up son.
Karen and Lucy met online around 2015 and in person (on a Scottish Art Retreat) in 2017 and have been fast friends ever since! They now co-host their own art retreat at Wardhill Castle in Aberdeenshire, Scotland, and co-host the hilarious podcast 1 Scot 1 Not. You can learn more about their podcast, journals and YouTube videos at 1scot1not.com.
