Hello Soul, Hello Mixed-Media Mantras

is an online painting course for people who
love soul work as much as art work.


In a virtual classroom that mirrors the feel of a face-to-face workshop, I’ll share everything I know about creating soulful mantra paintings that reflect the call of your heart. You’ll see my entire process on high-def video, so you can follow along with me, right at home. l’ll show you how to:

  • create gorgeously layered and textured backgrounds
  • silence the noise so you can uncover your own soul-specific mantra
  • bring it all together to create paintings that honor and celebrate your journey

quotebutton_@2x“This class is my favorite Kelly Rae class. For the first time I produced not one but two pieces I wanted to display in my home. I love them more as the months go by and they draw people to them and have started many beautiful conversations as we talk about the symbolism and meaning. I’m grateful to Kelly Rae for offering this class and for the way she walks us through it with such grace and encouragement. This is well worth taking.”

quotebutton_@2x“I was given this class for my birthday. No art experience other than being an admirer. The no mistakes, easy style of teaching pulled me right in immediately. Pure fun! I found a whole new passion! Thank you Kelly Rae!!”

quotebutton_@2x“Thank you Kelly. This e-course is so much more than I thought it would be. Delightfully deep, thought provoking & healing.”

quotebutton_@2x“Doors and windows flew open for me, never knew how to express myself in such a deeply positive way.”

quotebutton_@2x“The soul searching for my mantras was not only my FAVORITE part…it was so totally unexpected and so very amazing for me! I’m AMAZED at the healing, to say the very least!

quotebutton_@2x“This class is amazing and having Lynx [on air student] there was sheer GENIUS!!!! Seeing both of you doing side by side was double value, double fun – thank you.”

quotebutton_@2x“Love loved every moment. I am going back to start all over. It’s like a favorite movie that you never want to end and watch over and over!”

quotebutton_@2x“I am feeling so grateful and so very honored to be part of this wonderful group of women! It is truly inspirational and heart-warming to read all of your words. Thank you Kelly for creating this safe place where so much can be expressed and shared. I know I will take Part I with me and will use it forever. Love it!”

quotebutton_@2x“I debated whether or not to spend the money on it, but I’ve found it was very well worth every penny!!!!!!!! It was so full of info, so many techniques, and so many positive pushes to just go for it!! Love, love, loved every minute, thank you, thank you, thank you!”

quotebutton_@2x“Thank you for spending so much time bringing mindfulness, intention and spiritual development to your course Kelly Rae, it is EXACTLY what I was hoping to find in an art class, because it’s not just an art class, it’s evolving my creativity as a mindfulness practice, WHICH I LOVE!”

quotebutton_@2x“My nine year old daughter and I are having a great time with the lessons, which are so easy to follow. Thanks for doing this class!”

quotebutton_@2x“I am feeling so liberated by this process, I have unearthed some truths I wasn’t fully aware of until I started writing….thank you Kelly Rae for taking us on this journey of self-discovery.”

quotebutton_@2x“I feel like I am reading a great book and can’t stop, yet I don’t want it to end! Thank you!”

quotebutton_@2x“Boom. Light bulb moment. Thanks again Kelly Rae, I’m loving this so much.”

quotebutton_@2x“There are no rules, total freedom!!!!! I feel so alive!!!!!!!!!!!Thank you!”

quotebutton_@2x“If there is such a thing as ‘too much fun” then I am so guilty.”

quotebutton_@2x“I feel like my eyes are more open and I think less before seizing opportunities. Making space for coffee dates, found out one of my fave authors was speaking in my city this week, and honoring the urge to swim. It’s all connected to what we are learning. Mantras keep surfacing. Cultivating creative wholeness.”

Sometimes, the noise of everyday life leaves us feeling lost and confused. A personal mantra is like a magnet that pulls you back home; back to your power. That’s why almost all of my paintings include a mantra — an uplifting word or phrase.

People often ask me how I “come up” with all those mantras. Honestly?

They’re usually just the words that my heart needs to hear in that moment. So, I come up with them by… tuning into my heart. In Hello Soul, Hello Mixed-Media Mantras, I’ll show you how to do that for yourself.


This course begins the moment you sign up and you have lifetime access. All the lessons will be available the moment you log in to our online classroom (hello, set-your-own-pace!).

No art training or prior experience required. Whether you’re new to the world of mixed-media painting or have been at it for years, this ecourse will inspire you to create a few deeply meaningful mantras and then we’ll paint them into life.

By the end of the course, you’ll have a beautiful work of art (or two, or three!) to hang in your home – filled with words that speak to your unique heart.

““I love this process. I never knew that working with paints could be so much fun. Looking forward to making many more.”

Each section will look like this:

Part One is about getting still enough to hear the words and mantras that your heart needs the most. The journaling and reflection prompts will help you go deep to unearth the deeply personal words and phrases that your unique heart is craving.

Part Two is where we’ll unleash our joy and paint, shred, stencil, smudge, smear and stamp like our hearts depend on it. We’ll let our creative spirits soar while we embrace the chaos, the mess, and the no-mistakes style of mixed-media painting

In Part Three, we’ll add our mantras to our paintings, add finishing touches, and celebrate all that we’ve learned.


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!).

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 17 (SEVENTEEN!) high def videos, created with a guest student. (Her name is Lynx. You’ll love her.) She was brand new to this style of painting, so if that’s you too, her observations and smart questions will be really supportive for you.

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 + HEART + SOUL: I share dozens of my beloved painting techniques (collaging, layering, texture building, and so much more!), but I also share soul-stirring truths about what I’ve learned by becoming an accidental artist – kind of like we’re sitting together on a cozy couch, having some tea, sharing stories. Yes, just like that.

And did I mention the community?

The classroom is full of beautiful seekers, creative beings, joyful spirits.

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.

I didn’t know it at first, but as I made my way into the creative life, I learned that the process of painting and creating art teaches us so much about healing, courage, imperfections, change, and more.

What comes up in the canvas comes up in life.

My hope is that as you make your way through this course, you’ll see that painting is so much more than just splattering paint on a canvas. Art-making is a much deeper journey; an excavation of who we are and who we want to become. We’ll go on this journey together.

In Hello Soul, Hello Mixed-Media Mantras, you’ll tune into your heart and let your art-making be guided by the wisdom you hear there.

Consider this my loving invitation to join us. Come create a mantra painting (or three!) that is customized for the shape of your heart. I deeply believe that when you surrender to the process of creating art, your entire life opens up. Let’s open up together.

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 you’ll have lifetime access (that’s forever 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.

Thank you, friends. I’m so honored to be on this journey with you.

“My nine year old daughter and I are having a great time with the lessons, which are so easy to follow. Thanks for doing this class!”

I can’t tell you how much kids (from 2 years old to teenagers) love this style of painting. Probably because it’s all about embracing the mess, imperfect mark-making, and having fun with art supplies inside a process where there are truly no mistakes.

I absolutely encourage you to do this course with your kids.

My 6 year old son has been painting with me since he was about 20 months old and not only does he love it, but it’s become a sacred activity that we can do together.

If you have older kids, this process can be a great way into deeper conversations with them about the bigger metaphors and life lessons that emerge when we are painting (trusting the process, embracing the uncertainties, discovering your voice, etc – all things we’ll dive into in class).

“Kelly, I cannot thank you enough for this class. It is truly an uplifting and freeing experience.”

If you don’t consider yourself an artist, but you feel drawn to my paintings, please take notice. I believe that everything we find “beautiful” is actually a quiet whisper, calling us toward the life that is waiting for us.

I wasn’t always an artist. I admired “artists” for a long time before I finally started playing with paint, at age 30. That was when everything changed and opened up for me. My life has literally never been the same.

That same creative expansion and opening is possible for you. When you’re ready to answer the call, I’d be honored to guide you into a fun, soulful, no-mistakes way of painting. No prior art experience necessary.

quotebutton_@2x“After these past lessons I am BURSTING with new words to inspire!!!!!”

quotebutton_@2x“This class is such a “find” and that is the word I am using in my mantras. I like that it means looking and searching which involves some effort but that it also denotes coming upon something unexpectedly.”

quotebutton_@2x“Having fun unlearning everything I thought I knew.”

quotebutton_@2x“Your prompts have made this heart and soul searching so much more real for me, more heartfelt for sure….thank you so very much. If you were right in front of me, I’d give you a big HUG.”

I can’t wait to show my five grandchildren the video on painting canvases, they are going to love it. I will fit right in with their ages 3, two five years old, 7 and 9. Thank you so much Kelly Rae!”

quotebutton_@2x“I’m so full of passion to begin due to this part of the course. Thank you, thank you, thank you. My biggest fear was not being able to come up with my own meaningful and touching words. I’ve found my strength and I’m reaching for the stars!”

quotebutton_@2x“I am so very excited about this process! To be able to move my mantra out of my head and onto paper and then canvas is such a welcome release.”

quotebutton_@2x“Kelly Rae certainly has a way of pushing us to find our quiet voice that is whispering to us! For the first time in years I have  journaled nonstop!”

quotebutton_@2x“Thank you so much. I didn’t know I had all of that inside me.”

quotebutton_@2x“I am so grateful that this course is giving me “permission” to sit and ponder what is important to me. With life always going 100mph, I don’t think I would have given myself the permission had I not signed up for this! Thank you, Kelly Rae, for this most important teaching moment for me.”


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 hello@kellyraeroberts.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!
