Welcome to the Social Easel!

Have you always wanted to learn how to paint but didn't know where to start?

Here at The Social Easel, we have many options to choose from, no matter your level!

Hey, I'm Christie!

I’m the owner and founder of The Social Easel where I teach thousands of women every month how to paint. I have been an artist my entire life and love sharing my passion for painting with others.

I have been teaching women how to paint for the past 10 years! Most with little to no experience.

What started off as in-person paint nights in my local community has now turned into a worldwide online painting community!  I help thousands of ladies each month take their desire to paint and turn it into a reality!

I believe that God made us in His image and as the original creator, He instilled that same creativity in each one us! It is my passion and purpose to pull that out of each one of my students and bring joy and light to the world through painting! 

I would love to have you join me in this fun creative journey of finding your inner artist!
