I love using color, and this offered me the chance to use it but also be free. Miriam is very thorough in her videos, explanations, and tip pages. I thought this class was perfect!"

"So doable!"

"I love Miriam’s work and wanted to learn how she puts all her work together. There are no art stores where I live or anyone teaching mixed media art, so I signed up for the Mixed Media Madness online course. I love the way the lessons are broken up into smaller videos. Most of the time, I don't have an hour or so to sit through long videos. Plus, it is so much easier if you want to go back and rewatch how you created something than having to go to an hour or more video and try and find the section you want. Miriam makes it seem so doable. I'd love to take more Inspiration Place art classes. I just want to thank Miriam for all she does and her generosity in sharing what she knows. Thank you!"  

~Rose F., New South Wales 

"I can actually MAKE art!!"

"Mixed Media Madness is my second online class with Miriam. I am newly retired and am ENJOYING Miriam's style so very much. I love her casual approach to talking about art. I never feel intimidated by not knowing something. Thank you for that… I have learned so so many things...your tips are genius! I feel like I can actually MAKE art!!"

~Joan K., Florida

Bring Cohesiveness to your Artwork

"I love Miriam’s artwork. It is so inspiring, and I wanted to bring that cohesiveness into my work. I love making my own family history books and adding mixed media elements to those books, but I had no idea where to begin. Now I am brimming with ideas! Just a sincere thanks for opening up a whole new world for me. I now know how to use some of these delicious art supplies that I purchased (e.g., Pitt Pens, Glazing medium, alcohol ink) as well as acrylic paints. Mixed Media Madness gave me another platform for my watercolor art instead of just a frame as well!"  

~Grace V. D., Arizona  

Even if you think you "can't do art"

"I feel it is necessary even at the age of 70 to keep learning. Over the years, I have collected so many supplies that I haven't known how to use in different ways. I joined Mixed Media Madness, because I love the layering, stenciling and backgrounds I saw in Miriam’s artwork and I wanted to learn how to do it and which supplies needed. I am very happy with this class, and I can't wait to learn more! This is the kind of art that people can have fun doing, even if they say they can't do art."

These classes are great, and Miriam’s teaching was amazing and inspiring. I will be watching the lessons over and over. Loved them all! I can’t say that enough!"  

~Sheila B., Maine

What students ask before joining:

Q: When does Mixed Media Madness start? A. You will get IMMEDIATE access to the entire class as soon as you join! We'll send you an email with all of the details on how to get into your virtual classroom, and you can get started whenever you want!

Q: Can I download the videos? A: Absolutely! Save them to your computer. They are yours to keep forever. 

Q: Do I have to be at my computer at a specific time? A: Nope. Watch the lessons when the time is right for you. (Here's another great thing about doing video classes – you can pause and rewind the steps as many times as you need!)

Q: Does my access expire? A: You will have access to the class for the lifetime of the site. So you can take a break and pick things back up whenever you want... or retake the class a year (or 3!) from now... or sign up now and wait to get started when you have enough time. 

Q: If I am not on facebook, can I still ask questions and share my art? A: Absolutely! There is a members-only forum in every classroom at the Inspiration Place. And I have to be honest – my community is STELLAR. Supportive, passionate, creative, and so happy to make genuine connections. (For real. Some of my students have formed friendships over the years, and they actually enjoy signing up for the same classes together!)

Q: I am hard of hearing... A: Every lesson includes written tip lists (this is a printable document that you can use away from the computer.) Also helpful if English is not your first language.

Q. What if I've only done watercolor? A. This class is great for beginners, because I walk you through different levels. The first module is very accessible to all levels. Then, as you develop more skills, each new module takes you through various levels of mastery. It does get more advanced as it goes along, but I give options to modify the exercises, so you can choose to make it more advanced or easier.  

(Another note – many watercolor students come to me because they want to loosen up. They've been trying to be "realistic" with their art, and they like how my art looks fun, whimsical, and carefree. Mixed media a GREAT way to step into that. For watercolor students who "cross over" to mixed media, it's like their creativity gets unleashed because they're working in something new and can't default to old "perfectionist" habits.) 

Q: How many instructional videos are included? A: In Mixed Media Madness, there are 17 videos, plus a few more welcome videos and bonuses. All instructional videos show me working on different techniques just as if you were standing next to me looking over my shoulder and I was explaining my process to you. (Note: there's also an option to add on two of my other courses. To see how many videos are included in the bundles, click here.)

Q. Will I have to spend a fortune on supplies? A. I have a very limited supply list, to make it easy for you to go and get started. However, I always recommend that my students watch the videos to make sure they want to try that new supply, or substitute something they already have.  

Q. How is this different from other mixed media classes out there? A. People get frustrated in other art classes because the instructor is teaching a project, not a process. Unless you learn the process, you always have to copy the teacher. I share the process, so you can use these techniques to create unique projects on your own, once the class is over.  

Q. How does this compare to in-person classes? A. For starters, you get to go at your own pace, when YOU have time. You can also go back and re-watch any video, any tiny step, whenever you need to.  

The other thing is – in live classes, there's always a big group of people around the table. If you're short like me, you can never see the whole thing, or by the time you jockey for position, you end up on the wrong side of the table, so you're watching everything upside down. In my videos, you always get the BEST view. :)  

In fact, one of my students, Deb Eastwood has said, "I have taken in-person art classes, but Miriam's videos are so clear it's like she is in my studio helping me."  

Q. What if I'm short on time? A. A big advantage of my classes is I edit my videos. Some art teachers just flip on the camera, and you watch it in "real time," even down to watching the paint dry.  

I edit it down to what you actually need to see. No more, no less. I speed up the boring stuff and slow down when you're learning something new. I also divide all the lessons into very small chunks, so you can always go back to exactly what you need to review, without having to hunt through a huge, 90-minute video.  

Q: Do you offer a payment plan? A: We sure do! You can break your payment into 3 smaller installments, to make it easier. When you click the golden button to sign up, you'll be taken to a page where you can choose your payment plan option.

Q. I'm not sure I can afford this right now, even with the payment plan. A. I absolutely understand that. And I don't want to pressure anyone into an uncomfortable financial situation.

That's why we have the payment plan option AND a 30-day money-back guarantee. (To be eligible for the refund, you must have watched a minimum of 3 videos but no more than 10 of the videos that you purchased and send your request to during the refund period.)

Q: If I have another question that isn’t answered here, whom do I contact? A: I want you to be happy. If you have further questions that have not been addressed here, please email Anna
