  • Are previous drawing and painting lessons required?

    You only need a passion for art making. Previous art lessons are not required. You will be guided with self-paced lessons and how to use your materials with confidence. I love teaching and creating with my students from my art studio, while helping them build their art skills and knowledge.

  • Are art supplies included?

    Supplies are not included. Explore a variety of 2-D mediums such as pastels, watercolors, and illustration with markers on cardstock or watercolor paper in our Art Explorers course. In our painting class students will need Acrylic supplies and canvas. See a complete Art Supply list with online selections available in each course.

  • How do I receive feedback after completing a painting?

    Students upload their completed paintings for Ms. Mucha to review with the course uploading feature. She will reply with tips and guidance to help build your confidence as an artist.


“Our Daughter is very much enjoying your class and cannot wait for more fun artwork! She continues drawing and coloring at home too.”

My son took this Merit Badge class from Sandra and enjoyed it very much! Highly recommend! Our Scout takes a ton of online merit badges right now. This has been one of the most quality merit badges he has done!

"Ms. Mucha provides a great escape virtually allowing my scout to stay on track with her professional step-by-step online course. We appreciate the weekly progress reports, and my scout really enjoyed the art appreciation and art lessons too!"

My daughter took Ms. Mucha's class. So good!!! Ms. Mucha was great and is a professional in the Art world, PRICELESS!

"Our son is doing well in your class, and he is very excited about sharing with us the projects he’s worked on. He’s even shown more (than previously), interest in working on projects at home."

I have loved teaching art and step-by-step instructions for many years. At a young age I wanted to learn more about art, but was too shy or worried about creating the perfect image. Today, I enjoy guiding and helping students increase their artistic confidence from my friendly and secure virtual art studio. I present lessons inspired by my own playful use of line and color while guiding others to see where their creativity will take them next.
