Little babies and beautiful butterflies are such a happy and joyful subject matter to paint. There is nothing better than painting them both at once! If you find babies adorable and are fascinated by butterflies as much as I am, this course is for you!

Course includes:

Lesson 1 – Detailed explanation and demonstration on how to draw a baby’s face and hands.

Lesson 2 – Multilayered painting of baby-butterfly in a beautiful pastel palette using acrylics.

Lesson 3 –  Multilayered painting of toddler-butterfly in a vivid bright palette.

In this course l will show you my approach for studying a subject matter, drawing it, and experimenting with colors to be able to create interesting artwork.

You will have hours of instructional footage. All videos are downloadable.

A Facebook student group will be available for students to share their work. I will provide feedback and answer your questions throughout the course.

Is this course for you?

  • This course is for all skill levels, ranging from beginner to experienced artists.

Even if you’ve never drawn or painted before, you’ll be able to follow step-by-step instructions, just like a “paint along”! Even better, you can replay all the videos as many times as you want.

If you are a professional artist, I hope my techniques and approaches will inspire you!

“Petit Papillon is class mixture of fantasy and reality. You may start off with a particular baby in mind to paint but then you can turn them into butterflies, fairies, angels, anything you can imagine. You end up with a unique, beautiful baby that’s so adorable you can hardly stand it! Olga teaches in a very informative, relaxed way that is easy to follow. I loved this class” – Carolyn Myles.







“How do you explain a class that helps you incorporate the babies you love into a magical enchanting world. With beautiful flowers and glistening wings and sparkling crowns! Thank you so much Olga for helping me not only advance my art ability but also to learn how to tap into my imagination. Amazing class. I am over the moon happy I was able to participate!” – Catherine Valenti.
