Spirit Wings is a painting course designed to help you open your heart to what becomes possible when you nurture your spirit through art
I MADE SPIRIT WINGS BECAUSE…
I started playing with paint at age 30 and immediately, my life shifted, changed, opened up. I discovered a new way of being in the world.
Quite simply, through painting winged girls and angels, I grew my own wings and took flight. That was 10 years ago, and I’m still growing my wings. Every day. In Spirit Wings, I’ll help you do the same. No painting experience necessary.
“Spirit Wings is one of the most magical online courses I’ve ever taken! Superb make-you-think content, delivered in a warm and fun-loving professional manner. Truly enjoyable!”
In Spirit Wings, we’ll create angel paintings specific to your journey. Paintings that will be sacred to your story. Paintings that will inspire and manifest what’s to come. Paintings that will help you invite what you want more of and declare what you want less of. Paintings that will honor your celebrations, your grief, your courage, and your abundance.
In addition to the loads and loads of techniques I’ll teach you (face painting, backgrounds, and more), every step of this process is guided by a soulful intention. The angel paintings you create will be your own personal winged guides to inspire you along your path. It will be beautiful.
HERE’S A PREVIEW OF LIFELONG ACCESS OF GOODNESS:
This course begins the moment you sign up and you have lifelong access. All the lessons will be available the moment you log in to our online classroom (hello, set-your-own-pace!).
Once you’ve completed all 6 sections, you’ll have 6 completed paintings, plus all sorts of inspiration and soul work. (Technically, you could complete dozens of paintings during the course, but if you follow along exactly, 6 is the minimum. It’s entirely up to you.) And did I mention the community of kindreds? Keep reading…
Each section has a theme, and based on that theme, we’ll create one new angel painting during each section.
Each section will look like this:
Lesson 1: We begin by connecting our hearts and minds to that section’s theme. You’ll get audios, videos, and soul work assignments to help you silence the noise, hear your own heart, and choose the words for the angel painting that we’ll create in lessons two and three.
Lessons 2 + 3: It’s painting time! We’ll start by creating a gorgeous, layered background, and then move on to a rough sketch of our angel. Next is her face (each theme focuses on a different medium/techniques for face painting) and we’ll finish up by adding wings and other details.
Most importantly, we’ll add the words you created in Lesson 1; the words that are specific to your journey, what you desire, what you want guidance with, what you want to manifest in your life. By the end of lesson 3 of each section, you’ll have a beautifully painted angel guide to help lead you along your path.
Lesson 4: We’ll wrap each section’s theme with a declaration, dedication, and a soulful closing.
WHEN YOU SIGN UP FOR SPIRIT WINGS, YOU’LL GET:
Lifetime access, gorgeous design + functionality:
The course classroom is a beautifully designed and extremely easy to navigate website all on its own. When you sign up, you’ll be given login details, and you’ll be able to access the classroom forever (yes, forever!).
Professional high-def videos: The painting videos are exquisitely produced, giving you closeup views of my demo paintings so you can see the details of every technique. You’re getting over 18 (EIGHTEEN!) hours of video, capturing 6 angel paintings from start to finish.
Art Supplies: For each painting, I share every art supply I use, where I get them, and how to use them. For those of you who are like I was not that long ago, feeling confused in the aisles of art stores, this is an extremely valuable part of the course. I love sharing my resources!
Techniques: We’ll dive into dozens of techniques, both for backgrounds and faces. In each section, we’ll create our angel faces with new mediums (acrylics, oil pastels, oil sticks, gelatos, pens, and more). We’ll also create a variety of backgrounds as we move through each section, using collage papers, stamps, acrylics, and more.
“Kelly Rae’s painting course has been such a soulful journey for me. Not just in the joyful guidance she gives but with the beautiful tribe that has emerged from the class.”
But maybe the best part? The community of kindreds.
This course is full of a beautiful constellation of seekers, dreamers, experts, newbies – aka: creative souls with big hearts.
In addition to interacting in the classroom, you’ll be invited to our private Facebook group where a community of your fellow creatives will offer ongoing support, resources, and inspiration. I’ve taught several online classes, and the community that forms around this course is nothing short of life changing.
In Spirit Wings, you’ll let art out and let love in. You’ll find your edges, and widen your horizons. You’ll create gorgeous paintings to help manifest and call in all that is waiting for you. SO MUCH is waiting for you.
Classroom access: Once you register and pay for the course, you’ll immediately receive an email with your login details. With your login info, you can access the virtual classroom right away and your access remains valid forever. Lifetime access, my friend.
Sales are final: Because of the nature of online courses (once you pay for it, you have access to the classroom), all sales are final.
No painting experience necessary. I had zero painting experience when I started painting angels, but I learned through practice and time. If this is all new to you, this course will provide invaluable instruction as you find your way.
With that said, and if you’re able, I highly suggest taking my other painting ecourse, Hello Soul, Hello Mixed-Media Mantras first, as it will give you a wonderful base for creating backgrounds (no faces included there), using all sorts of mixed-media techniques.
Facial features: Spirit Wings does not cover the technical aspects of drawing facial features. If you are looking for detailed instructions on how to draw realistic faces, with correct proportions in regards to eyes/nose/lips, this class is not for you.
As you will see in the class demo videos, my approach is quite untechnical. My faces are whimsical, unrealistic, but always thoughtful and contemplative. I will walk you through, step by step, my process of creating faces, but there will not be any facial drawing assignments in this class.
Thank you, friends. So many of you have been asking me for this type of painting ecourse for years. I’m so glad to offer this up. It feels big and important in my journey, and I hope it inspires yours!

QUESTIONS? I HAVE ANSWERS.
I’ve never taken an online class before. Are the classes LIVE? Do I have to be at my computer at a certain time during the day?
There are no specific times that you need to log in (meaning, nothing will be LIVE at 8pm, 8am, etc.). You can log in whenever you want, from wherever you are, and access all the lessons. Log in everyday or once a week – it’s entirely up to you. Either way, the content (and the community) will be ready to greet you!
Once I register for the class, how long will I have access to the lessons?
We recognize that life gets busy! Your login and password will work forever. Lifetime access, my friend!
I’d love to gift this class to a loved one. How can I register them for the course?
Shoot us an email at email@example.com and we’ll make it easy for you.
Will I need high speed internet to access the videos?
Yes, absolutely. All videos are high-def and will require a high speed internet connection. Please note, we will not offer refunds if you are not able to see the videos due to a slow internet connection, so please consider this before purchasing the course.
What kinds of supplies will I need?
This is a mixed-media class, so you’ll definitely need a variety of supplies. The essentials that are absolutely needed include the following: a few colors of fluid acrylic paints (I like the GOLDEN brand, but any thin acrylic paints will do), a variety of collage papers (mainly scraps of papers you likely have hanging around your house), gel medium, a spray bottle, canvas boards, some mark-making tools that are likely hanging around your house (bubble wrap, jar lids, pens, paper towels), oil pastels, and alphabet stamps.
My friend / sister / book club ladies would love this! Can I share my login with them?
I love your generous spirit, and the answer is no. If you have friends you think would benefit from this course, please send them the URL to this page and invite them to sign up.
Your purchase gives you personal and individual viewing access only. Translation = You can log in to the classroom and watch the videos as many times as you wish. But you can’t share your login with someone else.
Can I sell the works I make from this class?
From my attorney: Through this ecourse, you’ll see the nitty gritty of how Kelly Rae makes her artworks. Please keep in mind that everything she makes is subject to copyright protection. This means that while you may want to follow along as closely as possible with her work, if what you create looks like Kelly Rae’s work, it’s going to have to be just for you. That means, no selling in your Etsy shop, or otherwise publicly displaying similar works. If, on the other hand, your work looks very different than Kelly Rae’s, post (and sell) away!
