Brave Girl Art School is a crazy-fun series of online art+life experiences. You’ll learn so many incredible techniques from Melody…one-of-a-kind things….FUN things….things she has learned and developed in her 20+ year career as a wildly-creative world-renowned artist.

It’s time to let free that artist inside YOU and EVERY girl…time to let her play and have fun… in true Brave Girl style.  Every girl, from beginners to professionals, will have a great time with the techniques Melody is sharing in this class!

What do Brave Girl Art School GRADS have to say about it?

“Signing up for this class has been one of the best things I’ve ever done for myself.  I really don’t want it to ever end.” – Amy N

“Beautifully said, beautifully shown, beautiful class.  Thanks for your inspiration, your drive, your passion and your caring concern…can’t wait for the next class….but now, I must make art…because I am an artist.  (Just so you know that is the first time I have ever said that….and I believe it.) Thanks.”  Sharon
