Creative Coach University - CCU Fall 2022

Registration is now OPEN!


Join Laurie on her home turf for this exciting 3 day workshop/seminar.  This program is designed to help people explore, create and establish a success path for themselves in painting.  


We have been doing CCU for over 15 years twice a year.  We took a little break with all the roadblocks we have faced these last couple years.  I used the time to make some updates/changes and new additions to our program that will make it even better.  Our new location has a larger room with great lighting.


The seminar will benefit:

  • Painters wanting to explore new ideas and challenges in painting.
  • Anyone wanting a fun-filled painting experience full of tips, techniques, new products and ideas.  There also may a field trip.
  • Crafters searching for new items for craft season
  • Designers wanting to work on their creativity and business skills
  • Teachers looking for new projects to teach and share
  • People wanting to create with paint and have a great time painting with others.
  • People wanting to put their own twist to the projects and challenges presented to fit their own style and needs
  • All new projects… 2 or more per day

CREATIVE TEAMWORKS is like a Virtual Paint Party with a Twist. Anyone can Create with Paint™, you just need the tools, a little imagination and a gentle push.  Add some laughs and we are on our way to success… 


Our SUMMER 2022 session is dedicated to full-sized painting projects with the upcoming seasons and holidays in mind.  We will be doing on trend Fall,and Holiday projects in the upcoming session.   There will be lots of extras for crafters anxious about their craft season.

So what exactly is TEAMWORKS?

Creative TEAMWORKS is class/group on my online classroom devoted to bringing TEAM members (subscribers) a fun, creative painting opportunity and provides a community of painters to interact, learn and celebrate with.  Step-by-step instructions on each project, you will see each step up close and personal in the comfort of your own home.  You will learn techniques, tips, tricks and learn HOW to “create” what we paint.  We keep it simple and allow you to take it to whatever level you are ready for.
