new online class: Technique Toolbox
I can’t wait to share with you my top 25all-time-favorite mixed media techniques in my brand new 5 week online class Technique Toolbox

You’ll learn all variety of methods from building backgrounds, image transfers, photo tinting, and working with paints and mediums. If you’ve never worked with paint before, don’t worry! I’ll take the mystery out of the process and if you are comfortable with mixed media materials there will be plenty of techniques for you to experiment with too.

Also this isn’t a class just about paint. We’ll be working with scrapbook papers, and photos in new ways with a variety of image transfer techniques!

Here’s the format for the class: every weekday Monday-Friday I’ll have a detailed instruction video for you where I’ll walk you through a new technique, a total of 5 techniques a week. We’ll use Saturdays and Sundays for catching up so don’t worry, I promise you won’t get behind! 

We’ll have some exciting guest designer projects so you can see their interpretation of the technique and then you can try it for yourself!

As soon as you register for the class, you’ll create a super cute and extra special “technique tool box” that I’ve designed for you to download and print. Throughout the class, you’ll also receive 25 technique cards with directions that will fit perfectly in your toolbox!

At the end of class you’ll have a Technique Toolbox full of 25 technique cards and ready for you to add more of your own!And don’t worry if you forget a technique, and want to re-watch a video after class is over, you’ll have FOREVER access to this class so you can always go back and get a refresher!

  • Is this class open to International students? - YES! That's what is so great about online classes no matter where you are you can take it!
  • Do I have to buy Claudine Hellmuth Studio products to take the class? No you don't at all. I suggest watching the videos to see which techniques you love and then using supplies that you may already have. Most of the supplies are simple items like paints, mediums and things you probably already have in your art stash.
  • Do I have to be "present" each day to take the class? no you don't! you can follow along as the class progresses, or check in periodically and download the directions, watch the videos at your leisure!It is *best* if you can follow along with the class as I'll be able to comment on your work and help you, but if you are out of town, don't worry, you won't miss out on any details and you can catch up at any time!
  • When does the class start? July 15th
  • How much is the class? $50 for 5 weeks of instruction! That's only $1.42 a day!
  • How long does the class stay active for those who registered? Students will have "forever access" to the class materials, which means that class will end August 18th (so there will no longer be teacher interaction), but students can go back at any point in time (as long as BPC exists) and access the class materials, gallery and message board! WOW!
  • I am just starting making art/collage: that's great! You'll get a jump just by learning these fun  techniques. It's a great place to start and just play and have fun!
  • I've been doing art and collage for a long time: You can never learn too many techniques in my book! We all have our own ways of doing things and I bet I've got some new things that you can incorporate into your work!
  • Will it work on my ipad? Yes! you can lie on the couch and watch all the videos right on your ipad! 
  • I've taken your other online classes, is this one the same? This one is all NEW. If you follow me closely and watch every single video, or have read all of my books etc etc, you may have seen a few of these techniques before. I have updated them with new tips, fresh videos and of course our amazing contributors will show you how they use the techniques in their work! Also I will be there answering all of your questions!


If you have any other questions that I didn't cover just post them in the comments and I will answer!

Hi Claudine,
I hope you will offer this workshop again. Right now I've been off work on medical leave (zero income) since November 5th and it's just not in my budget. I've worked since I was 16 and this is very hard for me but I look on the bright side and I'm having more time to create. Anyway, sounds like a great workshop, good luck, I'm sure it will be a success!
hi Pamela!!!
I am sure we will offer it again next year! wishing you all the best and thanks so much for your sweet note!
oooh cannot wait..just signed up this is going to be fun! :)
Yay Emma!! Looking forward to spending the summer together!! It will be fun!
Hi Claudine... I am trying to sign up for this class and I cant get in... It keeps going to some funny page that is just blank... Please help :D
Hi Val! That's weird! Maybe just an Internet hiccup! Try this direct link:
I just signed up! Looking forward to learning from you! Thanks for the opportunity.
Anita Driessen
thank you so much Anita!! excited to have you in class!
This class sounds wonderful but I am going to be out of town for almost half the class and have very little internet access. Is it still worth it for me to sign up? I know you have unlimited access, but I like to take the classes first and then go back.
Hi Peggy! that would be your call! All the information and videos will have forever access and you can revisit them at any time...but if you would rather wait to take the class when you can be at home the whole time that's totally understandable!
Hi Claudine!! Just wanted to tell you I just signed up!! Can't wait to start!!
My only question is, when will you be there? Is there a time when you will be available on the forum? I hope I'm explaining it right? ugh. Trying not to sound crazy is hard!! LOL!!
Hi Claudine! I've signed up for your 5-Week Technique Toolbox online class and can't wait to get started :) I'm really looking forward to learning all of the (new to me) techniques and increasing my creativity and bringing all my projects to new heights. It's going to be fun! Shari
Daniella - I will be checking in on the forums at least 3x a day. I am compulsive about checking in and answering questions so I will be there a lot!!
Shari!! Thank you so much! Let me know if you have any questions at all!!
I'm so excited about this, Claudine - especially learning some image transfer techniques! Just curious - how big a lottery would my husband have to win for me to hire you for an entire day, at my house, with my mish-mosh of products? LOL

Seriously though, I expect I'm going to learn so much cool stuff in this class that I'll be looking at my products through different eyes. Very exciting!

Would love to sign up! I've clicked every "click here" and it isn't taking me a buy page. Help???
hi connie!
thanks for your help note! here's a link for you:

if that doesn't work try this one:

thank you!!
Thanks, Claudine! The Big Picture Classes link worked for me. Looking forward to your class. ♥

I am so excited about this class. I just moved and do not have any of my crafting supplies unpacked or a place to work, so I had better get moving so I can be ready to play along. . . Lol!

Thanks for a great class, looking forward to working with you and all the others who join.

Maureen H.
I'm very interested in this class.
How long is each session?
What day/time will each class be?
Hi gerrie! The class is from July 15-August 18 and you can log in each day at your leisure to watch the videos and ask questions. After August 18 I won't be online to answer questions but you will have FOREVER access to go back an watch the videos and get the class materials at anytime!!
Let me know of you have any questions at all!
Hello, I've attempted to register for the 5 week media class on the site as a new user. I never received a confirmation email from big picture classes and I've attempted several times and get an error message. Any suggestions?
