Jar Full of Sunshine

This acrylic painting class is meant for anyone who’s never picked up a paintbrush before to seasoned artists who want to learn new skills, a new style, and a new FUN painting!

I start each lesson with a mini devotional covering five subjects that most of us deal with in life and in our journey with art!

Trust • Fear • Grace • Anxiety • Joy

Come ready with paintbrushes and a cup of coffee!

My hope is that everyone will feel the love I have for art and the joy it can bring others! Let’s spread some sunshine and happiness in this world!

I’m gonna let you in on a little secret… It’s about a whole lot more than just painting! It’s about letting loose, having fun, trusting God, and building amazing connections!

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!
