Hi, my name is Shelby Dillon. I am a full-time artist that exhibits at art festivals throughout the southeastern US as well as being featured on HGTV, Southern Lady Magazine, The Scout Guide, and more. One of my greatest joys is watching people discover their inner creative maven and THRIVE. I have grown my own creative practice from a hobby, to a side-hustle, to a profitable full-time business that also allows immense time for play and exploration. You deserve to embrace JOY and bring it into your everyday life

Who is this mini workshop for?

  • Those willing to experience a journey of self, connecting with the canvas and letting their authentic voice be seen and felt.
  • Those who want to learn several acrylic painting techniques.
  • Creatives who want to explore what it means to create freely, embracing imperfection.
  • ​BEGINNERS will find this a perfect place to start and EXPERIENCED artists are sure to pick up new techniques and expand their skills.
In this workshop we will bring forth our authentic voice; utilize it to create our painting with bright, bold, colors, and use brushwork to add extra dimension to the painting. We will embrace imperfection and create freely and loosely. 

You will be provided with color recipes and a supply list ahead of time so that you will can get comfortable before we start the workshop together.

  • ​​CAN I SELL MY COMPLETED PAINTING? One of my intentions in this course is to help you develop your powerful and personal connection with painting. Your own style will show when you work from your own photos, colors and compositions. I’m happy for you to show and sell your own original, innovative work. However, if your work is more similar to the original paintings in my copyrighted lesson videos, I would ask that you don’t put those pieces out to exhibit or sell, if they are close copies of my work. I trust that your heart will tell you what is too close.​

Here's what people are saying about Shelby's Workshops:

"Beauty, Fun, and Opportunity" - Deborah 

So thankful for this fun class!! And so thankful for the replays to continue to practice...... I can so easily look at this and see its imperfections, but I am choosing to see the beauty, the fun, the opportunity I had to do this class! This painting class has truly given me the chance to be fully present. As a yoga teacher that is something I try to practice and teach. As I was taking the live class each night, Shelby Dillon was so wonderful in her teaching and reminding us to be ourselves, no perfect way to paint! Before I knew it the class was over, fully immersed in just being.... Thanks! 

"Wonderful Workshop" - Elizabeth

I just wanted to thank you for the wonderful workshop. I am an elementary art teacher, and I paint at home with acrylics occasionally. The workshop was so helpful to motivate me to continue trying to do my own work. I learned some valuable tips about working with acrylic, that will help my artwork, as well as help me guide the little ones that I work with every day!
