Are you ready to stop thinking about painting and finally learn how to do it? Even if you never picked up a paintbrush before!
And without putting your art supplies away in frustration!
If you've been trying to figure out how to get started in acrylic painting or improve upon your techniques, then you probably already know that trying to find everything in one place can be SO time consuming and frustrating!
But...what if you could have an experienced artist in your pocket who was there for you every step of the way?
Does This Sound Familiar?
You're tired of putting yourself on the back burner, and you're ready to unleash your inner artist.
You're looking for a way to fill your time, reduce your stress, and use your creativity to drown out life's challenges.
You have no idea where or how to start, and you're feeling frustrated and overwhelmed.
You don't have the patience to search the web aimlessly for hours at a time, or jump from one virtual instructor to the next.
Sometimes you feel all alone, and crave a community where you can be surrounded by like-minded creatives, in the same stage as you, without ever feeling intimidated.
No one understands your urge to be creative, and you feel alone on your journey, and you're constantly discouraged.
Bottom line is, you really want to learn how to paint, and wish you had someone to give you step by step directions, who will be there for you when you run into trouble so you can keep moving forward...that's exactly where I come in!
For A Moment...
Your search is over, and you're about to embark on your creative painting journey.
You found a place that feels like home, where you can learn at your own pace, as you develop your own unique style.
You don't need to know how to draw in order to paint! So many of my students are afraid because they don't know how to draw a stick figure. Guess what? I didn't either when I first started, and I'm still not that crazy about it.
You'll become part of a community, a sisterhood, of non-judgmental, creative people like yourself, where you can freely ask for help, and also be proud to share your progress. You're no longer doing it alone.
No more guessingwhat brushes, paints or supplies you'll need. No more trying to find things out on your own, including what to paint.
Whether you're brand new to painting, or have experience, there's always SOMETHING NEW TO DISCOVER.
You'll have the ability to get your questions answered, including during my regular LIVEs within the community.
You're no longer nervous or frustrated at the thought of creating your own painting from scratch.
You're proud of your art, and look forward to your next creation.

I have been part of Debbie's painting group since the beginning. It's like being among a group of girlfriends. Relaxing and enjoyable. And it is so convenient! I can paint in my pajamas if I want to. Debbie has a way of teaching anyone, from a beginner to an experienced artist. There is no pressure. Her instruction is easy to follow and you learn at your own pace. I have truly enjoyed the opportunity to learn from such a talented lady! You are going to love it too!! LyNae Steele
My daughter and I love watching and painting with you. It relaxes us so much! You are doing such a great job with this platform and I just wanted to tell you that. Having lost my husband and father recently has been overwhelming for us, but I have all of my painting out and available daily. You are so inspiring and calm at moments that I can't even wrap my head around. Please keep doing what you're doing. It's wonderful ... I love it. Anonymous
I honestly have difficulty putting into words how your artistic talent just blows my mind - truly it does! As an instructor I love how you break down each different painting stroke into easy manageable steps for beginners and novices. Your calm voice and demeanor immediately puts me at ease......ready to paint right along with you! Sherri Clark Art by Sherri Clark

Meet Your Instructor
Artist and Painting Instructor
Hello, and welcome. I'm Debbie Viola, founder of Learn to Paint Painting Club and lover of all things creative. I began painting 22 years ago and fell so in love with it that it led me to quit my 23-year New York City corporate career after 9/11/01. I quickly turned my newfound hobby into a thriving art and decorative painting business that I still run today. Art has completely transformed my life, and nothing gives me greater satisfaction than knowing I’ve helped others through my art.
I’ve become humbled by how many thank me for keeping them calm, giving them a respite from their anxiety, and offering them something to look forward to that helps with current social isolation. Our 94 and 98 year-old moms live with us, and trust me, painting brings me the comfort that I need to unwind at the end of a stressful day. Painting also becomes a family event; many times I show them some simple flowers, and at other times my 8 year-old granddaughter actually paints with them. One of our Painting Club ladies does a Zoom call with her granddaughter that lives far away, and they paint together. How cool is that?!!
With everything going on in the world, I feel like I am being called to share my gift with you. I have a passion for teaching you how to paint or improve your skill. I know that you may feel overwhelmed by how to go about it, and may not even know where to begin. I'm here to tell you that you can end your search right now.
Think of me as your personal artist in your pocket...always there when you need me, whether you're just starting out, or spreading your creative wings and wanting to learn different things.
