What Is The School of Happy Painting Membership?
The School of Happy Painting Membership offers access to seven of Juliette’s online classes—a library of video and text lessons and a private community.
It will help you develop your style, loosen up in your art, and confidently share your creations with the world. You will explore various painting techniques, experiment with new mediums, and learn to paint in a style that is unique to YOU.
You’ll paint faces and eyes, watercolor portraits, whimsical animals, women with flower crowns, and so much more! There are paintings you can do in just a few minutes or totally dive in with layered mixed media paintings on canvas and two big paintings from start to finish.
The classes will motivate and inspire you, guiding you to love the creative process, connect more deeply with your style, and find joy as an artist.
If you're feeling uninspired, stuck, or searching for new techniques and variety, the Membership is here to guide you. You're never behind, and there’s always plenty of time.
Doors are open until December 23rd. Please note that to allow Juliette to give you her full support, enrollment to the membership and these online classes only happens twice a year.

What do students have to say?
“This course was the in depth instruction that I was really looking for to take some of the quick pieces I’d done and really develop them further. Watching Juliette work through a piece until she really felt the character develop was so helpful. Knowing that I wasn’t making any mistakes and that if something wasn’t working just changing my tool or supply could get me right through that tough spot was so useful. I really found that after this course I was able to not let negative self talk that was holding me back so often with my art get me down. Juliette is so relatable that I felt she’s been there and felt that too and she had solutions that really worked.” - Abi Bell
“I’m having so much fun with Juliette and her Joy Of Painting class. Playing with new materials and exploring different styles and techniques is such a nice way to switch things up when I need a little creative boost.” -Steph Joy Hogan
“This class changed my art life forever! One of the best classes I have ever taken. Juliette is so clear and easy to follow along. I never thought I would be able to paint an owl, or any animal. Now I just paint them easily! I am forever grateful to this class!” -Angelica Escalera
“So many videos and Juliette’s helpful commentary and guidance through the whole process. It really helped me loosen up while experimenting with many different media and techniques. Other classes I’ve taken just speed edit through the most important parts, while Juliette takes the time to explain what motivates her artistic process. That, for me, is the value of a class.” -Isabelle Lafrance
“Your instruction is not just an instruction on how to paint pretty pictures but it’s for creative process. It helped me in facing my fear of I'm-gonna-mess-this-up or I'm-not-a-good-artist. I really love that you guided me through openness so I can let what wants to appear, appear. So grateful” -Zoi Fuji
“I love your forgiving approach and so appreciate your personal thoughts, especially tips for working through the creative ruts and dry spells we all encounter from time to time.” -Kim Lacefield
“Juliette shares every step of her creative process in an honest way. The videos are worth watching over and over. I am inspired to try so many new things!” -Mo Brady
“Juliette, you gave me more inspiration and courage than you will ever know — I enjoy your easy going nature and that you show us your frustrations and how you make what you consider ugly characters into wonderful ones.” -Joanne Summy
“Thank you for teaching me to let go… splash paint… enjoy… and discover the joy of serendipitous moments.” – Sandy Leamon Derryberry
I’m Juliette Crane, the founder of The School of Happy Painting, online courses to help you loosen up, develop your own unique style, and connect to your heart through creativity.
Painting has always been a healing process for me. With over 15 years experience as a professional artist, I want to share what I’ve learned and what’s worked for me, in the hope that it’ll help you be loose in your art and develop your own style faster.
Art was the thing I loved to do growing up and in high school. But when I graduated college, I felt like my creativity didn’t matter. I stopped painting for more than ten years. I went to work as an editorial assistant at a newspaper, occasionally writing a music review or gallery feature.
It took SO many different jobs as a photographer, gallery assistant, floral designer and more before I finally realized the only thing I could put my heart into was being a full-time artist.
I’ll see you in the membership!
