"Thanks, Christie, for showing how to put together a composition. Being able to get inspired from different paintings and pictures and then come up with my own painting is a goal of mine. And being able to paint over something I don’t like is the best lesson to learn!"


"Thanks, Christie, for being intentional about teaching the steps in your process. I feel like I get “stuck in the mud” and “overthink” an original composition. It was fun to see the elements you gathered for your inspiration. The color mixing was so helpful, as well. Loved making the wreath!"


"I am so proud of myself! Following Christie’s process was so much fun and I enjoyed learning so many things along the way. My favorite was seeing how the lettering was done and it took away my fear of having to be perfect. This little guy brings me so much joy and I can’t wait to do the next painting with her!"


"My biggest take away from these tutorials was learning how to combine separate elements from references to come up with a unique design. The creative possibilities are endless with this method!"

Frequently Asked Questions

Still thinking about it?

The Learn the Process of Creating Original Art course is developed with all artists in mind, especially if you are motivated by any of the following:


You want to learn how to paint and create your own artwork without struggle...like..really badly. 


You want to feel the confidence of creating your own art and what that could do for your life and dream of the possibilities that it could bring you. 

Sometimes, it's even the small things. like time to yourself to get lost in just creating or confidence gained by learning new skills that you never even knew you had!

Maybe it's something more...

You want to not only create art for yourself but you would love to give art to others and spread a little joy in this world! What if you were even able to start selling your work and making some extra money each month!? Girl, DREAM! It's all possible!

Dream big and give yourself permission to pursue something new...JUST FOR YOU!

Close your eyes and think of all the things that could change with the knowledge learned in this course! What do you see?

Nothing is too small or too big. I truly believe God has given each one of us a creative side and most just need help pulling it out. He has some big plans for us.

His ways are higher than our ways and it's just our job to Trust the Process and keep growing and learning in anticipation of what he has in store for us next! 

Don’t let FEAR stop you from experiencing something that can bring so much joy!

The moment we take action, fear stops. Don’t wait. Do it scared!

Take the leap and jump in! 


I’m Christie Hawkins, owner of The Social Easel and also the founder of Christie’s Inner Tribe! And I LOVE to paint and to teach others!!

I would love to say that every idea I have just comes to me easily and that I don’t occasionally struggle with artist block... but that wouldn’t be honest! It’s just simply not true for any artist.

Students will get to see me struggle with so many choices, a few mishaps, and making decisions but ultimately, I will teach how to handle them when you encounter the same things when creating your own artwork.

That’s exactly why I feel like this course is so beneficial!

Art is a process. This course is designed to teach artists how to trust that process and learn my specific methods for creating original art!

I really hope that this behind-the-scenes look is going to give artists, no matter their skill level, guidance, and confidence so that anyone can tackle it on their own!
