The Trodden Path is an artist community designed to energize and inspire you on your creative journey. It is a place for learning, loving, and sharing with others.

We have a diverse collection of online art classes that walk you through the process of projects from start to finish.

It is FREE to join the trodden path. Once you're a member you will have the ability to fully participate on this site and have the option to purchase classes if you'd like.

Browse through the Groups/Classes to view some of the art being demonstrated and see if anything strikes your fancy. Our instructors are friendly and happy to share their techniques.

This site is in the early stages of development. We will continue to add new classes over time~

Come walk with us!

where do you create art?

Do you have a creative space set aside for making art? Share a photo HERE. Don't worry about what it looks like. It's just fun to share our different spaces whether small or large..organized or complete chaos :) and see where other people work!

wanna teach a class?

We are always looking for new instructors here at The Trodden Path. If you think you have something to teach, please contact me with a brief summary (can be one sentence) and a photo sample of what you are talking about.

To present your class you'd just need to show how you made a project from start to finish (via video), provide a supplies list and a photo of the finished project.

The atmosphere is fun and friendly and you don't have to be perfect...just open and willing.
