Learn how to use oil pastels to create gorgeous floral expressive art.


Oil pastels not only add beautiful texture and dimension to art, but they also can jumpstart the process when you are stuck.

I will share how I incorporate oil pastels in my acrylic artwork by demonstrating a painting from start to finish.

This class  literally saved me during the uncertainty of Covid-19.

This experience has forever changed my outlook on life, and was one of the most meaningful experiences I’ve ever had in a class.

Carrie created many enriching and soulful activities that encourage her students to discover and celebrate all of the beautiful blessings in life.

Carrie is so loving, and she created a wonderful online community for this class that has been totally supportive.

This class has been truly transformational for me. I highly recommend this online class!



If you need to “reboot” your creative soul and need an unconditional generous spirit to guide you,

a safe nonjudgmental space in which to do it, and an abundance of inspiration and joy to push you through it….meet Carrie Schmitt! I can’t say enough about her courses. They are relaxed, very well paced and addictive! She IS a blessing!


I took Carrie’s Blessings class last spring and it was simply wonderful.

Carrie is so warm and welcoming and she puts her heart and soul into the relationships she builds with participants.

I loved the information she presented about different types of blessings and how she was able to give my creativity such a positive boost.

I enjoyed the different perspectives that everyone brought to our class and loved how mutually supportive everyone was.

Whether you’re an artist or writer or just curious, give this class a try. I think you’ll be so happy you did!

May you join Carrie on this special journey into blessings and may your time together spark joy inside your heart.
