About the event

NOTE: Workshop tickets will be available for purchase February 1st after 10:30am. 

Joan Fullerton is an acclaimed international Artist Educator devoted to uplifting others with Art. She is an expert creativity coach who inspires uninhibited humor, the ability to trust your impulses and to play like a child. A non-judgmental approach to artmaking expands students' confidence, enabling genuine, expressive paintings. Her fine-art career of 50+ years has produced hundreds of poetic images hanging in museums and private collections worldwide.

Fullerton used her MFA painting degree to become an award-winning college art instructor. After 13 years of gaining valuable teaching experience in the classroom, she lived, painted, and exhibited full-time in Taos, NM. In 2010, Fullerton evolved her unique teaching methods to a workshop format and moved to the Denver area. As her reputation grew, she widened her reach well beyond the studio. Now, Fullerton inspires audiences internationally.

Featured in several television interviews, painting blogs, magazine articles, and books, including the #1 bestseller Radical Self Love, Fullerton is also the author of "Paint Yourself Free," an online art experience.
