What if you finally listened to that voice inside of you and made regular time for your passion?
What if your skills improved as you practiced regularly?
What if painting was effortless?
What if you had a community of artists to support you and cheer you on as you reach new heights?
I started this painting maybe 2 years ago... It's been sitting on the floor, next to my easel, half-done - like an accusation. I finally decided that today was the day. I was very happy to discover that my brush strokes were much looser than they had been back when I began this. I ended up going over the whole painting, so it wouldn't look half and half. Wow - Shelby's instructions are actually sinking in! Thank you, Shelby!! - Phyllis
All it takes is the right instruction and some practice. It's never too late to start.
You deserve to invest in yourself and your art. Learn how to bring your beauty into the world because the world needs your story now more than ever.
Start or continue your journey as an artist with the building blocks, tools, resources and support you need.
Thank you so much Shelby for your constant encouragement. This has to be a bucket list ticking moment. - Esther
Shelby Dillon Studio seriously! You are amazing and I can't thank you enough for your encouragement and teaching. I can not thank you enough!!! Picture 1 was my 2020 pumpkin, before I joined the fantastic circle. Picture 2 is yesterday's. Sometimes it is hard to see progress but it is there if you look. - Esther

Painted this for my husband yesterday. We are going to Ireland in few weeks. This is Temple Bar in Dublin!! Shelby, without your guidance over last couple years, I would have never attempted this! Ty 🙂 - Rose

A rising tide lifts all boats, and by helping others we help ourselves. Join us every month for a group critique, where we all learn together how to be better painters and artists.
Does perspective seem impossible? Do you REALLY want to paint beautiful clouds? Is water your jam? We have a library of skill builders that tackle topics like these!
For years I thought some technique or special (and expensive!) supply would get me where I needed to go.
I too spent far too many years and too much money trying to create beautiful paintings. I didn't realize it came down to lots of practice, a great teacher, and having a community to support you.
Now, after painting professionally for 15 years, teaching thousands of students, and selling my art worldwide, I'm ready to go behind the scenes and show you how to improve your skills to THRIVE as an artist.
In November of 2022, over 30 of our members gathered in person in sunny Saint Petersburg, FL for a members only retreat featuring wine, fellowship, fun and plenty of painting. The 2023 retreat is currently scheduled for Nov 17-19, 2023.
With new videos each month, expect to learn new skills and apply them toward different subject matter to expand your practice. We cover a wide range of subjects so that you can try all kinds of different techniques!
Because living a rich, creative, vibrant life - and making art that brings you joy - means you should feel good along the way.
The short answer: ANYONE! The Creative Circle is a monthly membership for curious souls looking to enrich their lives and explore the possibilities and gratification of a lifelong artistic practice.
Whether you are a true beginner just starting out in your creative practice, someone who has painted before but may be a little rusty, or an artist who is looking to level-up in their skills and find your artistic style, the Creative Circle has resources to support you.
