What you'll learn
Module 1. Home
We arrive this week in France, unpack our bags and settle in. We get close up to some French pastries with our paints, speak a little French, and set about the pleasant task of bringing France home. Lots of daydreaming involved, bonus photos, some travel diary entries, 3 paintings and great French music round out this amazing passage to France.
Module 2. Winery
This week we wind our way through the streets of Menerbes and paint the doors of France. Fun surprises in our aptly named Ooh La La section will have you seeing, thinking, eating, and speaking French. More bonus photos waiting for you to paint and a bit of inspirational words from me to you, filmed at the vineyard.
Module 3. Flower market
This is a daydream adventure! From picking cherries in our own back yard in Provence - to shopping the market in L’Ilse sur la Sorgue for flowers, we have great things cookin’ this week. French recipes, juicy painting, music at the market and wonderful French pinups for your space. And did I mention bonus photos of France? All France, all for you!
Module 4. Poppy Fields
Ooh la la darlin’. We have poppy fields to paint! Country jaunts, village visits and the makings of a picnic. Learn a little French, paint a landscape, daydream….repeat! Bonus photos this week include something purple - maybe a lavender field in Provence but you didn’t hear that from me…;-)
Module 5. Antique Market
Roses and antique watering cans go together like French Hot Chocolat and you. We will be painting the first and mixing up a batch of the other! We meander through the flower market in Aix en Provence and hunt down our watering can at the largest antique fair in France. More daydreaming, more travel diary entries and more enchanting photos of Provence that are yours to paint!
Module 6. Villages
Quintessential France - a cafe with market umbrellas. Should we paint it? But of course! A delightful visit to the most amazing emerald waters you’ve ever seen and some inspirational words from me to help you on your way. Did I mention that this week there will also be a bonus painting? Oui, oui! Two paintings, bonus photos and plenty of time to immerse yourself in France. La vie est belle. Life is beautiful!

This is so far above any other workshop I have taken.
When I found out this course was being offered, I knew it was something for me. I expected a lot (of course), but I can honestly say it is much more than I imagined. If you have a chance to take an online workshop with Dreama, I would recommend you do not hesitate for a minute! It’s so far above any other workshop I have taken, I’m absolutely thrilled with everything about it. Dreama not only shares her knowledge of painting, but spreads the love and joy of her knowledge and the way she lives her own life. She is truly a gifted and remarkable person!

My painting has improved by leaps and bounds.
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! I love the connection and encouragement with our Facebook group too. Dreama, I can’t say thank you enough.

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. I highly recommend the Dream.Love.Paint course!
This has been worth every penny
With Dreama holding my hand, I have jumped into the deep end of the oil painting pool and have learned to paint with joy! Dreama is so generous with her insights, instruction and tips. I highly recommend taking her class…it has been worth every penny.

I believe in full immersion or nothing at all. This course IS that. It’s a virtual trip to France for those craving an escape. If you desire to paint in a looser style and with more vibrant colors, you believe romantic French villages are pretty much the cat’s pajamas and speaking of pajamas, you like the idea of doing this at home, in your own place at your own pace, this is for you. Ready to dip your brush in the dazzling color and beauty that is France?
Yes! I'm in!
