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.

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!

will you open up another session of FLORAL DELIGHT?

FLORAL delight 2016 summer program registration closes June 24th at 12:00pm midnight pacific {USA time}. I’ve decided to close registration because I want to have a tight knit group that goes through the course together at the same time. It creates an interactive community and people are dedicated to the program.  There is not another set scheduled session for this workshop yet, if it does open up in the future I will make an announcement.

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

There are FOUR scheduled LIVE events during the summer program. 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.

when are the LIVE events scheduled?

We have a LIVE stream kick-off on Tuesday, June 21 from 10:30am – 11:30am pacific USA time. The other live stream event/Q & A sessions will be held on Thursdays during the two week live sessions in June, July and August. The times alternate each event to accommodate a variety of schedules and allow international students to join in. The events usually run from 10:30am-12:00pm or 3:00pm-4:30pm pacific USA time. There may also be additional special trainings that are hosted during the program. A detailed schedule will be posted in the classroom. If you are not able to make the live events, a replay is available right after the LIVE event ends.

how often is NEW video + workbook content added?
Please see the calendar schedule above. During the live session weeks, NEW pre-recorded video lessons will be available on Tuesdays by 12pm pacific USA time. Downloadable PDF worksheets or workbooks will be added throughout the program.
what supplies and materials will I need for class?

In all of my classes, I use a variety of found, handmade and store bought materials. I encourage you to use what you have in your studio. Please don’t feel like you have to purchase what I’m using. You can use whatever materials you have. I do encourage you to purchase a good set of primary acrylic paints. {red, yellow, blue, white and black} I prefer Golden Fluid paints. During the workshop, I will talk about some of my favorite mixed media supplies during each session. You can see a list of my recommended general supplies here.

how much access and interaction will I have with Traci?
During the SUMMER 2016 program, you will work with Traci once a month during the LIVE stream events, plus she will answer questions and check into the private SLACK community weekly during the sessions. If you choose to share your assignments, Traci will provide feedback and answer questions during the live stream Q & A sessions.
what is your cancellation and refund policy?
Refunds can be made up to the day before a LIVE session begins with a $25 processing fee. It will be refunded within one week after the request. After the program has begun refunds will NOT be issued. NO refunds will be issued once you have accessed the self-guided classroom. If you pay a monthly subscription and cancel it, you will be removed from the classrooms and no refunds will be issued.
