Believe in Yourself Again

“I'd never heard of art journaling before, but I had an inkling of what it was. I signed up for Painting With Words because I wanted something to spark my creativity in my art and I journal all of the time. I needed inspiration to keep on trying to get better. I loved listening to Miriam’s positivity.. She’s so upbeat and is always encouraging us. It really helped me much more than just art journaling, but in life and art. I also learned about all the mediums and how to use them, plus all of the wonderful things you can do to make your art journal your own. Miriam Schulman’s classes helped me believe in myself again.” ~Deb Lund

Create Consistancy with Your Art

I have struggled with consistently creating art, mostly due to my own critical, perfectionistic attitudes surrounding my art. Painting With Words looked like the perfect way to break free and make art fun again. I wanted to have the excitement I had as a kid surrounding art. I love the videos! I revisit them whenever I need guidance and inspiration. I also get great encouragement from the private Facebook group. I'm so happy to be a part of it. Her posts are always good, and I love the posting of others’ art and their comments, it is so helpful and encouraging. From the bottom of my heart, this art connection has been a lifesaver for me. I am so grateful for the Inspiration Place and all the beautiful, supportive artists I am now connected with." ~Luana Gerhardt

Quiet Your Inner Critic

“This class gave me the springboard to make art journaling an ongoing practice. I truly enjoy Schulman’s teaching style and her personality comes through in the videos - really enjoyable and non-threatening or intimidating way to learn. I can't wait to see what else she comes up with for future classes. I love her teaching style. You can go at your own pace and she is always very encouraging about just jumping in and trying it - quieting that inner critic. I now consistently do something every day, even if it's just starting a couple backgrounds to use later. I am hooked!" ~Susan Sparks
