Are you looking for a quick and inspiring way to bring the spark back to your creative practice. 

Do you struggle to find the time and motivation to create and make everything else a priority in your life but your creativity. Does the thought of setting up your studio space, getting started and cleaning up deter you from even getting started. Despite this, do you still want so badly just to have a few moments of creative time to immerse yourself in the pure joy of the creative process.

You’re not alone.

Imagine if you could create something beautiful, free and expressive in less than 30 minutes a day
that didn’t require a huge set up process or require you to have a super clam big studio space!

Would you love to have your own art guide with you, giving you a gentle art prompt that you can explore in your own personal way. 

How good would it feel to create consistently over 21 days and develop a create flow. 

Imagine building up a image bank of visually inspiring new ideas that spark up joy and lift you out of your creative rut.

No more feeling stuck. Sounds like bliss right!

Hi! I'm Natalie, the creator of 21 Sparks of Creativity

I know all to well the pressures of time, feeling unmotivated and stuck in my creative practice. For many years I juggled a full time job, a side business and a growing list art of art shows and commissions. I was time poor and got so frustrated with having to find time to just set up my supplies! I was living in a small studio apartment and lacked space. I had all the reasons to not create, yet the desire wouldn't go away. I found a way to set up a small space, store paints I could access straight away and paint for less than 30 minutes a day. This simple process helped bring a sense of calm and joy into my life. 

This is why I've created this course.

How this course works...


There will be a short video (approx 10 mins) demonstrating the daily art prompt to help inspire and guide you. These will be pre-recorded so they can work around your schedule.


Everyday you'll receive a new art prompt in the form of a visual example and written description

I'm going to help you find the spark in your creative practice again in just a small moment of your day.

+ Everyday for 21 days in a row you will receive a new art prompt to spark up your creativity.

+ These art prompts will be presented to you as a visual example, a written description and a short video demonstration
(ideally less than 10 mins).

+ You'll learn how to explore different art principles, elements, media and colour schemes including line, texture, monochromatic, layers, contrast, collage and mixed media to name just a few.
(I'm not going to spoil the surprise and share the whole 21!)

+ You'll  have access to a private online Facebook community of other Artists to share your work with and get inspired.
This is a great way to learn together and have a sense of accountability.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

I always suggest using what you have on hand at first.
Most of the daily art prompts can be done using some form of wet media, ie watercolours, inks, acrylic paints, along with some dry media such as coloured pencils, oil pastels, gel/paint pens. A selection of different papers or art journals is recommended.

Absolutely! This course is fantastic for beginners. The daily art prompts are a great way to get introduced to the principles and elements of art making as well as learning about art materials and colour combinations. Don't worry, I will guide you every step of the way through the video tutorials. If you're new, you can simply copy the examples I share with you while you build your confidence. 

Yes and Yes! I was an experienced painter when I went through this exact process I am teaching inside the course. I was a burnt out painter, painting realist artworks for hours on end and losing interest in art and creating altogether. The lessons in this course are designed to reignite your passion for creating again, to give you new ways of looking at your work and for you to find more joy and freedom in what you create. 

I suggest working no more than 30 minutes a day on these lessons. This course is designed to make art a sustainable practice in your everyday life, it's there to bring your joy not to burden you as another task to do.

Breathe and give yourself grace. This is your creative journey and you get to take it at a pace that works for you. Life happens and you most certainly may find you miss a day or two. Some days you may have more time or energy on your hands and choose to work through a few lessons at once. There's no rules or right or wrong here, do what works best for you.

You will have access to the course and the 21 lessons for at least 12 months. You can revisit the lessons at anytime and work through them using different media and colour palettes.

I LOVE this course and know it will help you!

This has been one of the most fun and joyful courses I have created.
Working through the lessons personally continues to help me move out
of periods of creative stuckness and reignite my personal joy in
the creative process time and time again. I can't wait to share it with you.

21 Sparks of Creativity is a small collective of my 30+ years of painting experience (yes I've been painting since I was 3!), expert training via art school and solid experience teaching 1000's of students on and offline for over a decade!

I not only know how to paint, I know how to teach it!

These lessons have helped many aspiring artists find their feet in the studio and inspired them to create boldly.

I'm looking forward to seeing you on the inside, Natalie xx
