Guest Designer Tallulah Jade Rainbow

Dear friends!
This is rather unusual art lesson from my personal teacher of fearless art – Tallulah Jade Rainbow. She just turned 4 in January and was painting in this style since she was 1. While observing her for 3 years I have learned to let go of my attachment to outcome, I learned to take risks, to play and be free. Although she is an abstract artist and I paint faces – principles of fearless art are the same. We share the same passion for stencils, especially StencilGirl Products, and hey – we are not getting paid to say that. We just love stencilling and that is the truth! I hope you enjoy this class and have fun creating!

Instructions for this class from Tallulah:
  1. Go large.
  2. Imagine a story.
  3. Play.
  4. Play more.
  5. Get covered in paint.
  6. Sing and dance in between.
  7. Go for it.
  8. Really go for it.
  9. Never mind the outcome.
  10. Layer.
  11. Experiment.
  12. Make lots of random marks.
  13. Accidents are always happy.
  14. Have fun!
  15. Don’t forget the stencils!

  1. I love watching Tallulah paint,such joy and a brave mom. Just before I watched this I had a paint explosion. I was painting in my LR and the top exploded off my distress paint, it is on the couch, my arms pants, shirt, everywhere. I had to stop and decided to check in with SG. I feel like this was a message at the perfect time. Thank you Tallulah!

  2. Thank you Denise! Oh well, definitely a message! Time to have fun and get covered! :)

  3. Tallulah taught me a lot about being free and loose. I am going to watch this video often. Excellent work and the joy and release touches me deeply. ghoagland (at) msn (dot com).

    1. Thank you Glenda, watching her paint touches me too. I also want to be that free!
