Welcome to the Heritage Artist Community

Currently, our community extends through our teachers to cover 4 continents, but it's expanding!

Who are we?

Friends, Teachers, Artists, and Students who love decorative painting and who love to share it with those who possess a desire to learn or just to have some fun painting!  Most of all, we are friends who make the world a little smaller through painting.  With the help of today's Internet, we can all learn together and share our love of painting.

We invite you to take a look at our sponsor sites.  If you have any further questions, please contact us at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.








Academies Of Decorative Painting

Here you will find our Museum, some free Online Classrooms, Educational Forums, and our new Teachers Forum, where you can communicate with people from around the world.  No matter whether you are painting in Brush with Color, My First Paintings, or the Heritage Program, the Academies is our main site to visit where you can learn.  We have members in the Academies from over 40 countries

My First Paintings

14 Teachers have come together to produce a series of DVD's and lessons that build on each other.  These are co-ordinated lessons that each student can purchase to view at their leisure so that they may learn at their own pace.  Each lesson teaches different aspects and techniques of decorative painting.  Start your journey now, in the comfort of your own home, then be sure to join us in the Academies to share your journey and to learn even more



Brush with Color

Coming Soon.  This new program has been designed with the help of many different artists and teachers from around the world.  Its format allows some of our friends to write books and packets and to produce DVDs with a common lesson plan and purpose.  It's an example of our community working together to build a set of decorative painting lessons that beginner, intermediate, and advanced painters can use to expand their techniques.  This is a home study course which allows artists to choose which lessons they want to study and when.
