Course Description

My classes are designed for beginners. Have you ever wanted to try a Paint Night at a local restaurant, well my classes are similar in ease but I use watercolors! They are simple and made to assist those who feel they can not paint a stick. I've heard that many times over the years. My classes do not include boring academics, but rather the fun and joy of experimenting and completing something the very first time. The great thing about the video is you can pause, replay and watch them as many times as you need to. You can do a scene several times until you feel like you have it down.

We will be painting a beautiful birch tree scene. Living in Maine, we get to watch the seasons change every year and adding an autumn scene to my art classes is only natural. I will also show you how to frame your work of art once completed.

You will learn some techniques and a dash of theory through watching my classes, but I do not get in depth like you would in an academic atmosphere.

Please enjoy my class and I love to hear feedback and even share your art in the reviews. I take your feedback seriously and use it to improve my classes for everyone.


Have a wonderful day!

Here are some recent reviews from  ART STUDENTS:

★★★★★ "EASY TO FOLLOW"

I have been a Bob Ross certified instructor for 26 years and I have taught in various venues. Kelly is very clear in her instructions and she makes it easy to follow what she is doing. The class is simple enough for beginners and yet she gives the student plenty of room for creating a little on their own. The instruction on the supplies was also clear and easy to follow.

~Cherly M.

★★★★★ "ENJOYED"

"I enjoyed doing this this painting. I am new to watercolor. Was able to follow, having to go back occasionally. Will probably do this painting several times just for the practice. I contacted the Kellie Chasse sight because of interest in alcohol oil painting. So will be an active student for awhile to come. Thank you for a great beginning!!"  

~Kathleen F.

★★★★★ "BIG HELP"

"Because everything was explained so simply, and Kellie's painting in real time was a very big help. I intend to take more of her courses in the future."
