Imagine this: you grab a cup of tea as your favorite music plays in the background. There is a fresh canvas on the wall, your art journal open on the table, paint laid out on your palette and instead of standing aimlessly in front of the canvas, you are EXCITED to dive in and paint freely with reckless abandon..fearless of imperfection…YOU LET GO.

You scrape paint across the canvas with an old hotel room key… an extra bbq skewer scratches marks into the thick paint…a few sprays of water..paint drips create a rhythmic pattern…leftover cardboard stamps the perfect pattern and you mix colors with ease to create the perfect hint of chartreuse.

It’s a colorful explosion of brushstrokes, marks and ideas that unfold…you use every bit of paint. YOU KEEP MOVING

You close your eyes and let the paintbrush dance around the canvas without second guessing. 

You’re not worried you’ll make a mistake…because there are NO MISTAKES. It’s the process, it’s the CREATIVE JOURNEY.

You don’t judge yourself, you don’t question, you just FLOW, you make marks..one leads to the next, it’s a graceful dance mixed with wild moments of fast movement where you scribble on the canvas with crayons, collage torn paper, and doodle with markers.

You “look with new eyes,” a chopstick and craft foam become a paintbrush…you don’t need expensive tools. You dip your fingers into the paint and they become an extension of your creative soul…

you are FREE. you EXPLORE. you PLAY.

If you start to question…you walk away. Take a break. Go for a run, play with the dog, hangout with the family, make a yummy dinner. RELAX. Then come back the next day refreshed and ready to dive in. You repeat the process. YOUR CREATIVE PROCESS.

Sounds GREAT, right?

This might be in your imagination right now, but I know you can get to this place of courage, trust and exploration. I truly believe YOU CAN EVOLVE as an artist, find your own style and have fun in the process.

I’ve listened to many of my students say, “ I don’t have the time to fit in my art because daily life is so busy.” I’ve also heard you say, “ I get stuck, where do I start? How do I get over my fear of the blank page?” 

In response to these questions, I’ve created a workshop where I teach my CREATIVE PROCESS and guide you to become the ARTIST you long to be. My goal is to help you unfold your own artistic style through inspiring creative prompts, colorful mixed media lessons delivered in high-definition videos, downloadable audio, beautiful PDF workbooks, live stream Q & A and a supportive private online community.

This process encourages you to build your creative skills and to “see things differently,” so you shift from “copying” exactly what you watch in videos and classes to CREATING YOUR OWN STYLE. You learn techniques and you begin to REMIX them into your art in new ways.

You start to define your process, DISCOVER YOUR OWN WAY and build your confidence as an artist. YOU FLOURISH.

playful + soulful techniques for mixedmedia: painting. collage. color. PLAY

In this online mixed media program, you’ll learn how paint VIBRANT, freestyle florals infused with your story, creative inspirations and develop your signature style.

Get ready to face the blank canvas with more confidence, learn how mix your personal color palette and build a body of artwork that shines in your OWN unique style.

Inspired by my LOVE for flowers…the colorful sakura blossoms that pop up in winter, creating a colorful floral arrangement, a trip into the local nursery, a walk through a botanical garden and the tropical florals I’ve encountered on my travels through Hawaii and Southeast Asia. This workshop is ALL about painting the colorful flora that surrounds us and telling a visual story through color, marks and your personal journey.

Through my guided process, I encourage you to become a confident, self-starter who will dive into a painting session without fear, without question. You’ll begin with simple explorations and creative exercises where you’ll write your ideas, capture your inspirations through photos and sketches. Then, you’ll dive into color mixing and learn to create a personal color palette through simple and fun creative prompts. Each module builds on the next as you explore the creative process.

Then throughout multiple sessions, you’ll experiment with the process of building mixed media floral paintings with freestyle backgrounds and mark-making including various techniques using stencils, handmade paintbrushes, and found tools. You’ll learn how to incorporate collage and mark-making then weave your sketches and inspirations from your research studies into the final pieces of artwork.

FLORAL DELIGHT session two PDF workbook preview by traci bautista

Each session, I provide PDF workbooks full of creative prompts, ideas to REMIX art techniques, creative field trip guides, notesheets, journal reflections and art journal printables. Throughout the program, there are LIVE stream events including studio office hours Q & A sessions where you have the opportunity to be on screen and talk face-to-face with Traci and other students from around the world.

PLUS when you register for the FLORAL delight online program you’ll receive these amazing bonuses…you’ll receive 6 months access to our FLORAL delight PRIVATE online community, FLORAL remix workshop, Designing FLORAL patterns in Photoshop mini class and FLORAL DELIGHT DIY planner printables, TWO digital floral painting workshops.

FLORALdelight_logo_long by Traci Bautista

Why flowers?? It’s something that’s universal, accessible and emotive. They are found everywhere, they are part of our everyday life..you see them walking down the street, you might receive them for a special occasion, you may grown abundant blooming garden and they are given as a token of well wishes and LOVE.  Everyone can develop their own style painting by studying a simple, beautiful subject. PLUS they’ve been the one of themes reflected in my art through the years and have influenced my art to evolve. FLOWERS bring joy, happiness and smiles.

In this class, you won’t be painting perfect landscapes, botanical illustrations {which I greatly admire} or sketching out the perfect design then painting over it. You will use your imagination, inspirations, collections, writings and research to create mixed media FLORAL BOUQUET paintings and collages that are intuitive and freestyle. They will be abstract, incorporate YOUR style…including drips of paint, your words, splashes of colors, wild mark-making…expressions of your TRUE CREATIVE SPIRIT.

What Our Customers Are Saying

Don’t just take it from us, let our customers do the talking!

“I love the live stream events. For me its the best way to watch, learn and be inspired. I can’t ever get enough, so for me if they are a tad longer, that’s great. Especially because there are always so many good questions!

Its great that you are so forthcoming with info as well. Your generosity and the way you teach are your secrets to your success. “

Tex R.

“Overall, I think the workshops are awesome and just keep getting better! In the beginning I was hesitant because I thought the cost was too high. But for the amount and quality of the content, it is worth the money! I love the way you mix up digital and physical art to make mashups. No other online teachers I know of have even tried to go there… Just awesome!

Also it is important to me that your classes work well on mobile devices. I’m glad you’re aware of the technology side of content delivery. Crucial! “

Karen L.

“Just wanted to send a quick message to say how helpful this course has been for me personally. I am more confident about filling a blank page, i.e. doing backgrounds. I am more relaxed with the whole process but I think this too will take time and practice! Anyway, It has been great to participate in Floral Delight and I just love the DIY planner, it will help me plan my art a bit more!” Lizzie UK

Frequently Asked Questions

what is your e-course + teaching philosophy?

Thank you for your interest in my workshops. I have been teaching for over 15 years and have traveled the world to teach mixed media and creative business workshops. In 2008, I developed my first online workshop and back then I was one of only a very few artists offering online classes. My classes have evolved throughout the years, I developed over 30 online classes and I have taught tens of thousands students online. Fast forward to 2016, I know there are numerous online programs to choose from, so if you are considering my workshops, I’m grateful. Here are a few things to know…

  • My goal is to create a course experience that is deep, soulful and challenges you to GROW as an artist. I want it to mirror the experience of you coming to an in-person workshop in my studio.
  • I always STRIVE to create courses and programs that inspire and encourage artists to find their creative spirit through simple techniques, inspiring lessons and colorful PDFs.
  • I VALUE the personal connection that I have built with my online community. That’s why I started incorporating live stream video in 2009, now with newer technology I have been able to see my students face to face from half way around the world. It’s truly amazing!!
  • I LOVE to design visual content, so all of my e-courses combined have over 1000+ of pages of colorful PDFs/e-workbooks. Many students have binders full of reference that they can refer back to even when the class is finished.
  • My classes are designed for both newbies to advanced artists. I teach every level of artist in all my workshops.
  • I use a lot of handmade and found materials in my classes. I encourage you to use the supplies you have. I share my favorites but it doesn’t mean you have to go out an purchase them.
  • My students come back..I’ve had numerous repeat students who have taken every course I’ve offered, so that says something about my classes.
  • Courses sometimes change direction, I teach “in the moment”, meaning I’m flexible and allow my content to be that way too. I might have an idea or outline at the beginning of the course, but 9 times out of 10 it changes as we go through the course. If I’m working on something new, I try to add into the class during the live stream workshops. I ALWAYS teach more that is advertised in the class.
  • There is no standard for the cost of an online course and I while some of my newer courses are higher price, I feel it is in line with the value and quality of the content I present. I design and produce all of the workshops myself PLUS have built all the websites to deliver the best workshop experience to you. I put in a significant amount of hours to develop all the content, write all the words, edit all the videos and market all the classes. So the cost is very low compared to the time that is spent creating it. I know my classes won’t be for everyone but I have also tried to make them more affordable by offering an extended payment plan. If you were to take an in-person weekend class at my studio it would cost upwards of $450 not including travel. So I think my pricing is more than fair for the amount and quality of content I provide. I completely understand if it is not meant for you, that’s why I also offer low cost and free alternatives through my books, blog and email newsletter.
  • QUALITY over quantity is important to me. Quality in content, in design, in experience, in students and in instruction. I have changed the way I structure my e-courses. For now, in 2016, I will close registration a few days after the LIVE session begins and give extended access to my mixed media courses for one year after the live session ends. This change is because I want my students to spend time to work through the content in a timely fashion. I want you to be actively be involved and engaged in the live events and soaking in all the lessons. This will enable us to all share and contribute in the community. I don’t want students who sign up and drop off after week two. I want students who are serious in developing wholeheartedly as an artist. My new classes will challenge you as well as guide you.

Thank you again for considering my workshops. I hope to see you in the classroom!

How much time will I need to set aside to be involved with this program and live trainings?

You will receive detailed access information in the classroom.  Live stream events usually last between 1 to 1.5 hrs.  You will want to set aside 1- 3 hours a week to focus working on the creative prompts, video lessons, exercises and projects. It is entirely up to you how much time you devote to creative play, but the more you put into the assignments and doing the work, the more you will accomplish and grow as an artist.
