In eight lessons over eight weeks (= Full Version)  or 3 lessons over 3 weeks (= Short Version) we will make our way up to more advanced techniques. There will be two possibilities for you: you can either choose the Short Version or the Full Version of the class.

I will share with you my favorite Acrylic Paint techniques.

Short Version: Each of the lessons will end with a tutorial for two artjournal pages showing the learned techniques.

Full Version: Each of the first seven lessons will end with a tutorial for two artjournal pages showing the learned techniques.

In week eight of the Full Version I will show you how several of the learned techniques can be combined and used on a project, whether it be a scrapbooking page or an altered art project. (It will be not the one shown below ;) )

 During the fun workshop lessons you will also learn a lot about all kinds of materials, mixed media, layering, how to create texture and design principles. I will share with you why I’m doing things, how I got the idea and what works and what doesn’t seem to work.

I will also set up a flickr gallery for sharing your work so that we all can see it and have a group to chat about the work!

What you need:

Acrylic Paint and some minor things like a journal and brushes

All other supplies are optional. We will talk about substitutes if that occurs. I assume that most things I will use are generic :) or at least easy to replace.

It is not about copying with exactly the same supplies, although you are free to do so if you want ;)

What others had to say about my Über*Media Workshops:

Tineke, The Netherlands:

Just finished the Acrylic Paint classes (long version) and I LOVED it! For me it was an exciting exploring adventure cause I’m new to all this art fun stuff. I just LOVE the way Nathalie teaches. So relaxed, funny and talented. I will miss her ‘pretty cool’ talk and my weekly adventure but hey there’s more!!!! My new next adventure will be the Pan Pastels workshop and after that I want to know all about Gesso. Yep, I’m hooked:-) Thank you so much Nathalie, you’re in my heart. Thank you for everything. You’re such a BEAUTIFUL person. Loads of love from Tineke/TeedeJee

Charlene Ocasek: Well I just finished Nat’s class Uber Media Gesso and it was the best thing I could have done. I was introduced to gesso in Julie Balzers class 30 Days in you Journal and I was crazy for gesso. Nat is such a good instructor, she explains everything so well. She never hesitates to tell you what products work with gesso so you get the best results. The one thing about Nat, besides her great sense of humor is that she is very hands on with her students. I will definitely take other classes with Nat and I highly recommend this course. Thanks Nat!!!!

Martha Richardson, USA: Nathalie’s workshop introduced me to techniques using PanPastels, an art medium that I had never used before. To be able to concentrate on just one art medium allowed me to gain knowledge that I can  use over & over again. I highly recommend taking an online workshop with Nathalie. I will be signing up for the next in the series of her workshops!

Carmen Sanchez, Spain: “Über*Media PanPastels workshop has been so much fun. Nathalie knows how to make things amusing. The workshop covers lots of different uses for PanPastels in the mixed media field. The videos and pdf files are very useful and descriptive. The sample projects are so creative. Also the timing is great. You have plenty of time to play and practice in between classes and Nathalie is always willing to help and answer your doubts. I’d totally recommend it”

Hedwig Schlötjes Belle, The Netherlands

Nat is a very inspiring and experimental girl who shows you good, new tricks and all new kind of techniques. Because of her experimental nature, you can be YOU in her workshops. No need to make what she does, but it’s about being creative yourself. Much better, if you ask me, and i have experience as i was in her PanPastel class which i liked VERY much. Besides that, Nat is a kind person, quick in answering questions and encouraging you as a student.


  1. der Trailer ist ja der Hammer, das macht echt neugierig … ich werde dabei sein *yeah*

  2. Is there a time limit in which you have to finish the class? (Maybe you mention this point somewhere, but I have not yet read everything.) Thanks in advance for your reply.

  3. just signed up for the full workshop. Can’t wait to get started. How do I begin?

  4. Hi Nat – I am obviously very late for this workshop but wonder if it is still available online?

    • Hi Jessica, no you can join right away if you want 🙂 It is online and now in total 🙂 The students that signed up before were working real time weeks- but you can do it now on your own pace. Iwill be still there for you if you have questions 🙂 Nat

  5. What a creative way to showcase your class!! I’ll have to check with the hubby for this month I promised not to spend any more money on “craft stuff” I hope it’s a class I can take even after it’s started!


  6. Sue Clarke says:

    Woo hoo…I’m in for a full/fun time!!!

  7. M. Carmen - Cuchy says:

    Hey Martha, we will be -again- classmates! I’m in. This is just the classes I love to take. Deep and wide knowledge with the best company. Just give me a couple of days, Nat. 🙂

  8. Yayyyy, Nat! I’m SO excited to be taking this class from you! If I can’t be taking an in-person class with you in NYC, then this will have to do! Hugs!

  9. jjsobey says:
