Savvy Painter Growth Studio

If you're an artist, like most creatives I've worked with, you've been taught that being an artist means constant struggle - with creativity, with business and with money. Follow your passion, but have a backup career and be prepared to starve. 

You’re wondering...

  • How to create time to paint (without sacrificing your family time)

  • How to recognize your authentic voice and use it confidently

  • How to start (and finish) that series you keep dreaming about

  • How to CONFIDENTLY show your work anywhere

  • How to own your business savvy (without the fear of selling out)

  • How to keep resistance, perfectionism, and the inner critic out of your studio so you can FOCUS and be a PROLIFIC painter.

These aren't easy skills. No one taught us this in art school. 

Good news. I can totally help you with this.

Welcome to Growth Studio

Growth Studio is my monthly membership program where you learn to have confidence in the studio, set goals that you love and know you will follow through on - they are as good as done! Get peer support and one on one coaching opportunities.

What happens on the canvas is a direct reflection of what is happening in your mind. Wouldn’t it be amazing to go into any situation knowing that you always have your own back, and that you can handle any situation, any offhanded comment, any new challenge (sending your work off to a gallery, having your first solo show) with absolute certainty that whatever happens, you’re ready.

You’ll have the tools to clear the clutter out and enter each painting session with a clean mind. Free of all the voices of past instructors, self doubt, and poisonous thoughts that silence your true authentic voice.

You’ll have the tools to clear the clutter out and enter each painting session with a clean mind. Free of all the voices of past instructors, self doubt, and poisonous thoughts that silence your true authentic voice.

It’s your time.

Here's What's waiting for you inside:

Every week there is a live event happening in Growth Studio! And if you miss it or just want to watch again, I've got you covered - recordings of all events are available in the library!

Live Group Coaching

Take charge of your studio practice! Bring your questions, challenges, and all the blockades (big or small) that are slowing you down. I’ll coach you through them so that you can be focused and prolific in your painting time.


In Growth Studio, you get live lessons with Antrese on topics like:

• How to Feel Better In Your Studio (and anywhere else).

• Finding Your Voice

• Making Time to Paint

• Creating Goals
• Confidently Getting Your Work Out

Learn the tools that empower you to plan, create, and get things done!


Get feedback on your painting, or learn from your peers questions.

When you know your painting "isn't working" but you're not sure exactly why - I've got you!

In Growth Studio, every week, you'll get live help!

Growth Studio is for you if...

  • You want to learn how to create work that is authentically yours.
  • You’re tired of apologizing and justifying your choice to be an artist.
  • You want to show your work without the angst and terror of what other people will think or say.
  • You want to CONFIDENTLY talk about your work and where people can buy it. (Because after all, you DO want to sell your work, right?).

In order for you to do all of that consistently and authentically, you need to know your own mind and know how to manage it. 

Every artist has different views and tolerance levels for putting themselves out there and marketing their work. The trick is learning what that means for YOU! 

The good news is, you all have this amazing tool called the human brain. It is always working -  either for you or against you. Most of us have never been taught how to manage our minds so that they consistently work for us. This is the one thing that I really wish I had been taught in grade school. I seriously think everyone should be fluent in these tools. It would make things so much easier!

I will teach you how to “rewire” your brain so that you...

  • Build your confidence as a painter. 
  • Get clear on your voice
  • Have your own back (no beating yourself up)
  • Show your work confidently (to a gallery, on social media, or in person events) knowing that no matter what happens, you can handle it.
  • Do what you say you will do when you say you will do it without second guessing your decision.
  • Learn a unique way of seeing your practice to empower you to blow your own mind.

These are some of the essential tools we will focus on in depth over the next several months in LIVE classes.

About Antrese

I’ve had the advantage of working at Disney with some of the most creative minds in the entertainment industry. After 10 years of providing art direction on video game titles to artists all over the world, I got really good at quickly seeing problems and clearly articulating how to make high-quality paintings.

I'm also a Certified LCS Life Coach, which allows me to help you get to the root cause of all the tricks your brain tries to pull. I'll show you exactly what your thoughts are creating and teach you the tools to create lasting habits you'll use for the rest of your life.

This rare combination of practical art skills and cognitive behavior studies ensures you get concrete results. My time is precious, I reserve it for Growth Studio members who want access to to me and lessons I curated from decades of my own experiences and years of study. It took me years of hard, focused work to bring it all together into this program for you and I’m positive you’ll make huge leaps in your painting and your art business.

Got Questions?

I'm sure you do!

When does Growth Studio start?

You get immediate access that means you can start watching lessons right away or learn from your peers by checking out our library of critique videos. You also get access to my past lessons.

Do I get direct access to Antrese?

Yes! Every month we have live Zoom calls where you can ask her anything about your studio practice, gallery shows, your painting series, or any of the mindset lessons.

Plus you can sign up for a critique session - three times a month you have the opportunity to get your work critiqued live.

Want to work privately with Antrese? Antrese has a limited number of one on one clients. Email to see if spots are available.

When are Live events?

Live events are held weekly and all events (Office Hours, Live Lessons, and Critiques) are recorded so that you can watch them later if you can't attend live.

In order to serve the most people, I alternate the times so that members in the US, UK, and Australia have the opportunity to attend live.

In general, events are on Wednesdays and Thursdays. Occasionally, they are scheduled on Tuesdays.

Will I have time to do this?

If you have a minimum of 2-3 hours per week to invest in yourself, then yes! Obviously, the more you put into it, the more you will get out of it.

Group Coaching sessions, critiques, and live teachings are one hour.

I know you are busy, and the whole point of this is to get you focused and working on your art. There is a lot of content waiting for you inside, I suggest you choose one topic to focus on and then keep building your skills from there.

What if I am in Growth Studio but I can’t make one of the Live Events?

No worries - I've got you covered!

All sessions are recorded, you can watch them whenever it’s convenient for you. 

Recordings are available about 24 hours after the live session ends.

“My hesitation is in myself. I’m afraid I won’t follow through.”

I hear you. It’s tough sometimes. I’m after progress, not perfection. You will be surrounded by other artists who are also working right alongside you and are there to lift you up.

What if I'm an Introvert?

Many of our members are introverts, but since Growth Studio is a private and safe space, you'll find that you will open up to the other amazing people:

“My experience was that everyone was very supportive of each other. Those connections, I still have a lot of those connections. We like each other's stuff on Facebook and support each other. I know that one person was in a show and got some awards. It's just so nice to see people sharing that part because you know that they're excited. It's such a wonderful thing to see someone glow and to cheer them on.” ~Kaethe B

I don't know what questions to ask

Laura felt JUST like you! Here is how she overcame her fear:

Can I quit anytime I want?

Yes, if you cancel your subscription you have access until the end of your billing cycle. However, you cannot rejoin Growth Studio for one year.

Can I pause my subscription?

No. When you join, you become part of a special group of artists who are committed to growth. We depend on each other so we don't want people bouncing in and out.

Still have questions?

I'm happy to help! I can usually get your answer to you within 24 hours. Please be patient if you submit your question on a Friday, I might not see it until Monday morning depending on what time zone you're in 😊

Here is what people are saying about

working with Antrese

"Antrese brought a unique level of insight and genuine caring to each participant, which I so much appreciated. She made everyone feel comfortable and supported, like a dear friend, but also knew when to break out some tough love, like a compassionate mentor that really cares about your evolution.”

~ Laura

"Within a few months of Antrese’s course on getting into a gallery, I not only got into one, but had a successful solo show.

She helped me break that self-imposed limited thinking and move along a more productive path. Not everyone’s going to have the same result, but everyone will take away something liberating. She’s really good at re-directing your thinking.”

~ Rhonda

Antrese is so down to earth. It's like having a good friend to talk to. I mean, she's an artist, so of course, she understands. She's bringing up the right questions. 

When you talk outside the group, people don't get it because "you're so lucky you're an artist!" And we are! Yet, there's still all these challenges. I'm very thankful that she put the program together. She's very organized and to the point.

~ Kathleen
