With 50 plus videos waiting inside the Dream.Love.Paint course it wasn’t easy trying to pick what to share with you 🙂

It’s like filming a 12 hour movie and trying to give you the whole story in a 30 second trailer.

Nearly impossible!

And besides that—it doesn’t even touch on the painting notes, inspired writings, journaling prompts, color recipes and more (you know, all the things that are non-video) that are part of the Dream.Love.Paint. course.

None of that matters according to Eddie the Cat.

He didn’t care what was left on the cutting room floor as long as his bloopers outtake made it in the final cut.
And it did. I’ll  just go ahead and apologize now.

P.S.S. Here’s what some of the folks who signed up for the January/2016 course have to say about their experience! 

I re-entered the world of oil painting just recently after retiring from a 40 year photography career. I’ve taken several painting courses to bring me up to speed and Dream, Love, Paint is by far the best class that I’ve ever taken! My painting has improved by leaps and bounds. My skills, my eye and my understanding of color have improved light years beyond what I have ever imagined! The ability to work on my own time is such a blessing. I love the connection and encouragement with our Facebook group too. Dreama, I can’t say thank you enough. BLESSINGS!
~ Beverly

I am beyond thrilled. Dream.Love Paint is more than a painting class, it fulfills all the artistic and emotional needs of my soul. Painting is such a beautiful experience with Dreama.
~ Lou

If you were drawn to Dreama’s use of light and color in her paintings, you will love the Dream.Love.Paint course! The course is a unique mind, body, spirit experience not only teaching technique (which is wonderful) but also nurtures the heart and soul of every artist. Dreama shares HER heart and soul in this lovingly crafted course with profound wisdom and lighthearted wit. This is a funny and remarkable lady who has a gift for teaching and instilling confidence in her students. Throughout the course you feel as if it is just you and Dreama over coffee, and she is sharing her inspiration or explaining to you just what you need to hear. This course is simply a wonderful experience that not only helped me understand Dreama’s painting “recipes” but her open-hearted approach to life that so influences the quality of her paintings. I highly recommend the Dream.Love.Paint course!
~ Pam

This course has been the best I have ever taken! I learned so many valuable details like organizing my palette and how to brighten greens without adding white! But the most valuable to me were the words of wisdom that Dreama offered in every lesson. The reminder of staying in tune with the unique gifts we have been given. To honor, who we are and to enjoy blooming right where we are.
~ Jenny

Dreama’s course is packed with content! I couldn’t wait until Saturdays for her class modules to roll out! Her course is not only about painting it’s about embracing Joy and feeding our souls and expressing it through our brushes. Dreama is the most nurturing teacher right along with her fellow art students on the private face book page.

Thank goodness we have a year to soak it all in like Dreama’s sunflowers following the sun. I thought my life might become too busy to really participate fully; I was determined to seize the opportunity! Best Decision Ever! Thank-you from the bottom of my heart.
~ Sylvina

I’ve been wanting to learn to paint oils for some time after dabbling with them and not getting results I wanted. Then I read that one of my favourite artists, Dreama Tolle Perry, was going to do an online art course.

I didn’t know how being taught Art online could work, but I’ve always been impressed with Dreama – not just her paintings and their beautiful colours, but her words…inspirational and spiritual with a smattering of poetry thrown in too! So I jumped at the chance to take Dream.Love.Paint because of all these things – a leap into the dark and then WOW, the light went on on every level!

She has a fabulous way of teaching, with great videos showing every brush stroke, explaining why and when she does certain things, you can rewind to play over and over…for a whole twelve months …and it’s just like she’s in the room guiding you. I’ve felt more alive, happy and I am painting like I didn’t know I could And Loving it!!

    This will be my first real painting class after watching several videos on you tube using acrylics! I cannot wait to get started. There is a small tiny spark that I know when it ignites my life will never be the same! This is NOT simply a painting course. I can already sense that.ReplyCancel

  • Vicki P. Maguire - January 6, 2016 - 2:54 am

    Dreama, this was the icing. Gratitute is so vibrant and a choice. It’s been sooo hard convincing hubby and sons of this foundational belief. I too collect, memorize, quotes, psalms, and even words I put together as I love poetry. It’s quite impressive that’d you tie that
    To our art or daily living. Thank you. I’m not a Pollyanna nut. I believe. And need reminding.
    I thought I’d seen all videos. Yet I’m not aware of materials and costs. I’m thrilled to have signed up early yet I missed something.ReplyCancel

    Dreama, I love the videos. I find joy just watching the manner in which you present the information. Your smile and positive attitude are contagious! I am drawn to create things. I envision myself a painter but have minimal experience. This course is likely to be far above my skill level but I am curious and eager.ReplyCancel

  • \june - December 21, 2015 - 2:27 pm

    My heart is lighter and smiling from the inside while watching this lovely little and very uplifting sneaky peek into all the wonderfulness that’s on its way.

    I feel better already, Dreama. It is going to be a beautiful time experienced and a beautiful time spent, as we create, explore, and feel and/or re-discover joy and inspiration.

    I must admit that I’ve not worked with oils for many, many years (anyone remember the wonderful and classic Bob Ross series ‘The Joy of Painting’ on PBS?), but I’m eager with anticipation and renewed enthusiasm to pick up those tubes, those brushes and get stuck into the canvas, once again.

    Thank you, Dreama. Thank you so much!ReplyCancel

  • Penny Tubbs Briggs - December 15, 2015 - 1:23 am

    You are exactly what the doctor ordered. After being a florist and wedding cake decorator for the past 28 years I finally get a chance at painting. I was told 1 1/2 years ago to stop decorating due to tendonitis in my elbow. I’m finally having surgery so the timing will be perfect. I am on my 51 years old and last June after a month long headache I was told I’d had a stroke and was going to die. So many were praying for me and after 6 months of recovery I have no residual effects of the stroke. But after facing death I came away wanting to live!! And to me living means color and beauty and sharing it with others. God gave me a miracle and continues to each day. I would be privileged to take this class with you!ReplyCancel

    Dreama, thank you for the inspiration,because today I started a journal. My first entry was, to qoute you, “We get to decide what to focus on.” I liked the comparison of the camera lens since I love photography. I am looking forward to making that journey with you, to Dream, Love and Paint. I love your carring spirit.ReplyCancel

  • jeanette sclar - December 10, 2015 - 10:13 pm

    Dreama, I guessed long ago what your special project might me, but I had no idea it would be so much more than just painting instruction….having watched the 2 previous videos about the course, I was beginning to feel you have a sadistic streak, teasing us with information when it seems so far away. But all is forgiven! You comment that “every painting you do serves a purpose”was one of those “aha!” moments for me. It vibrates with everything I know, and it is such a great concept to bear in mind!ReplyCancel

  • Clare Strohman - December 10, 2015 - 9:04 pm

    Loved your newest video. And your headband rocks! And…..I must say, I’ve never seen paint on your hand before…but I saw some green on your palm. It made me smile, just saying!! After watching this video, Dreama, this was my “Best Day Ever” of the week.
    I’m going to wear my Best Day Ever shirt now:)ReplyCancel

  • Kathy Lewis Saleh - December 10, 2015 - 5:02 pm

    LOVE! Long story short – broke my back 3 years ago – got on ancestry.com while recuperating and found a long lost Aunt – 91 years old at the time, who happened to be a painter, sculpter & poet! We emailed back and forth and in one of my emails to her I told her that I always wanted to paint but didn’t have any talent! The next week I received a huge fedex box with paints, brushes, books on color theory and a sweet note that read “Dear Kathy, – everyone has talent – just try”! I haven’t stopped but have yet to take a class so I’m so very excited to go on this journey. Thank you and God Bless!ReplyCancel

  • maggie - December 10, 2015 - 4:58 pm

    Nice video. It seems that you are doing all that you can to bring people into community and in a studio together. A place where you share from your heart a whole picture of painting and self expression wrapped with inspiration and gratitude. It is helpful to be able to replay when learning. I graduated with a Bachelors in Art 2013. that last year I conquored geometry and physics – which I loved, though I would need to have discovered that way back when!! The ability to go online to teaching videos was key. I like that a person will see you mix your colors and put them on the canvas.

    Question? I have some waterbased oils. Whenever I have worked with oils it has been wonderful, but since I mostly worked in a school studio I used acryllics – easier to transport while I worked. I did one workshop and hoped to learn about working with oils and I am afraid the instructor was not aware they made water based, so I continued to self discover 🙂 Do you think or feel that oil based oils are preferable because ________. I know the easy answer is that it is my choice. Would love to have you shed some light.

    Your video is very delightful, engaging many of my senses. The idea of connecting with community, you and others sounds appealing. ThanksReplyCancel

    • Dreama - December 10, 2015 - 6:19 pm

      Maggie–you are right–being able to see the palette and hit replay are a big benefit to this online course 🙂

      As for your water based vs oil based oil paints question—I have painted in both. When done, you can’t tell the difference. In using, the water based ones feel a little different but I have found one gets used to that pretty quickly and forgets about it 🙂 (the main thing with water based oils is to get good quality ones—there is a BIG difference in these type of oils) What I finally settled on for myself was to use regular oils with Zest-it as the solvent. Zest-it is non toxic which was the reason I first looked into waterbased oils was to eliminate the use of regular solvents in my studio. Hope this helps you narrow down what fits for you!

    I just loved this latest nugget! Ken and I sat and watched together and it made me so thankful that we both got to meet you last year in Costa Mesa. Having spent time with you makes it so much more personal when I watch your heartfelt and beautiful videos. I simply cannot wait to watch you paint again! Your colors are luminous and just so nourishing to my soul. And thank you for reminding me there is always, always, always something to be thankful for! Have a wonderful day, Dreama! Really looking forward to the course! xoReplyCancel

  • Bridget Blair Wietlisbach - December 10, 2015 - 3:18 pm

    Well chosen clips, methinks. I especially love how the overhead shot of your palette shows us what and how you’re mixing your colors.ReplyCancel

  • Sandy - December 10, 2015 - 2:51 pm

    Thank you for sharing your heart. It seems each time you said the word journal my heart jumped. I never want to do anything without my quiet time first. We strive for so much but in vain. It must be real in our heart first if we want to touch people with our lives. You have surely touched and inspired me. I hope I can be a part of your course. Thank you so much!ReplyCancel

    Funny, I have been for a long time trying to think of something positive that happened during the day and then something to look forward to for the next day, no matter how small or silly. I t helps with a positive attitude I think. Now I am looking forward to the course and antisipating having more to look forward to.

    • Dreama - December 10, 2015 - 9:30 am

      Jean! About supplies…I mentioned this in a blog post and intended to mention it here and simply forgot to! Here’s the skinny on that…and thanks for asking 🙂

      You are welcome to use whatever colors, brushes, mediums, and surfaces that you wish for following along on this e-course. Always know that any artist’s work that you may admire looks the way it does based on specific things they are using/doing.

      My painting “recipes” are like any regular kitchen recipe you might cook up. The more substitutions you make in ingredients, the greater the variance in the results.

      And variance doesn’t mean bad, it just means different.
      Remember, when it comes to art … different can be a good thing!

      Understanding this can help you make the choices that are right for you when it comes to your supplies and your budget. You will learn as you go what you like, what works best for you, what to keep, what to discard. It’s what we all do as artists. You may find a brush that you like much better than the one I use—and that’s what it’s all about!

      You can always build a wish list for later as you watch the videos.

      I want you to feel the liberty to pick and choose what you like/need according to your budget AND at the same time let you know specifically what I use—and why—so that you know exactly how I achieve the vibrant colors and effects that I do in my paintings. Fair enough? ?

    Dreama, I love the ideas presented in your videos and technique you use, but I cannot do oils, I can’t even stay in the room where an oil demo is being done as the smell just kills me. I know you do some watercolors, which I work in, but I also work in acrylics. Is this course mostly oils?ReplyCancel
