Many artists want to capture the beauty of the ocean, but it can be a little daunting if you don't know where to begin.


Do seascapes seem too complex to paint?

Have you tried in the past and got flat or distorted results?  

Are you getting muddy colors or have trouble getting those gentle transitions?


If so, you might need help breaking it down into easy steps.

My name is Jennifer, and I can help.


I’ve worked in the arts for over 20 years as an art instructor, art supply sales associate, frame designer, and art gallery staff.  


I've seen amazing results from students who were shy about painting seascapes.  The confidence that comes from learning to paint step by step is incredible!


I had to learn and work on my practice to be able to paint seascapes, and I’ve seen countless students be able to do the same thing, even when they thought that they couldn’t do it in the beginning.

Beach Day: How to Paint the Beach in Acrylics

You'll find bite-sized video lessons that demystify painting the ocean.  Imagine being able to:


  • Learn how to give your seascape depth with a quality foreground, midground, and background.

  • Understand how to mix paint for the nuance of sky, sea, and land.

  • Use brushwork to develop form and texture

  • Get the right water textures on waves and foam.

  • Enjoy the relaxation that channeling a seascape will bring.

  • Bring amazing light and shadow into your artwork.

  • Create beauty that will connect more with your audience and potentially lead to sales.

  • Feel proud of your next seascape. 


Stop guessing about seascapes and end the frustration.

"Take a class from Jennifer and find joy while you learn!"  - Cynthia

"As a graphic designer, I tap into creativity a lot but in a really compact, tight, computer, pixel world.  Touching the paint and moving into a holistic experience was something I was really craving.  The experimentation was my favorite part and I feel like I could have done that all day." - Susan

Come with me on a relaxing beach day staycation and learn all the steps to painting the beach!  I explain every move I make in real-time, as if you're right there with me looking over my shoulder in my studio. 

I’ll see you there!   


“When I tried academic art in the past I felt stifled, judged, and even harassed like they’re trying to beat the creativity out of you.  Jennifer is really about who you are instead of who somebody else wants you to be”

- Jenvy

Frequently Asked



I'm a total beginner to art. Is this course right for me?

Absolutely!  I recommend this online class to all beginners as well as intermediate artists who want to brush up on their seascapes.  We use acrylic paint, which is a beginner-friendly medium.  Appropriate for children 12 and up.  

I’ve never taken an online class.  I learn better in the classroom.

Are you sure?  If you haven’t done an online class, I highly recommend it.

  • You’ll have a better, close-up view of the demos, instead of from the back of the classroom.

  • Sometimes I rush in the classroom because I need to move things along for the sake of time.  So, as a teacher, my demonstrations are better quality in the videos.

  • You won’t have an annoying table mate who complains about how hard it is, even though they’re probably just mentally blocked.

  • Students get tired toward the end of the day in live workshops.  We all get mentally spent.  With online class, you can take breaks and absorb the lessons over several days when you’re focused and ready to learn.

  • You won't have to deal with public bathrooms or finding parking.  

  • No shirt, no shoes, no problem!

Is this a live-streaming class, or all the videos pre-recorded?   

All of the videos are pre-recorded.  There are seven lessons and they will be the same for everyone.  You can watch them whenever you want and you'll have lifetime access to the course.

If you're not there in person, how will I get feedback?

You can get feedback in the Keller Collective facebook group.  It’s an optional, bonus group on facebook where you can ask questions, post pictures of projects, and get support.  It's a bonus to all of my students who take my classes. Once you have joined the course, you will receive a link to the group.  If you’re not on facebook, that’s ok.  It’s not a requirement and you can always email me your questions.

Do we make art in this class or is it just studies and swatches?

In this online class, we make one fun and relaxing finished painting.  You are welcome to make as many studies as you wish to practice.  

Are the videos all available at once, or do you pace the class?

All of the videos are available at once.  Everyone works at a different pace and has different levels of responsibility.  Whether you're a working parent, retired, or a fulltime student, you can set your own pace from the comfort of home. 

If I purchase the course now, can I take it later?  

Yes!  You will be sent a PDF document with your confirmation email which has a link and password to the online class.  Download that PDF right away and save it on your computer.  You will have 30 days to download the PDF, but the link and password in it will give you lifetime access to the course.

Can I get my money back if this course isn’t right for me?

I offer a 30-day money-back guarantee to take the risk off of your investment of the course.  All I ask is that you give the lessons a try.  If, before 30 days, you find that it's not right for you, please email for a full refund.
