About the Course

Flora’s generous and soulful style of teaching has inspired thousands of people to step boldly into a world where art is born with spontaneity and joy. Now the chance to bloom true is available to you wherever you are in the world through this five week online painting adventure!

Brimming with gorgeous high definition video demonstrations, unique lessons, inspiring prompts, interviews with fellow artists, live weekly Heart Circles and Q + A sessions with Flora and enough encouragement and inspiration to last a lifetime, this course will empower even first time painters to unlock their creative flow while gleaning transformational life lessons along the way.  Bloom True: the e-course is unlike any other online painting e-course out there, and it may just change the way you paint forever.

*Please note: Although basic painting instruction regarding tools, materials, color theory, mixing paint, composition, value and layering will be covered, the focus of this course is not on specific painting techniques. Rather, the intention of this course is to present a holistic approach to life and painting, one that empowers, inspires and encourages you to let go, move through fear and discover your own authentic way of creating.

Throughout the five-week journey, you will see the evolution of three large original paintings from start to finish. Professionally filmed in HD and shot on location in Flora’s Portland studio and home, the course will provide encouraging step-by-step guidance as you bravely let go of fear, embrace intuition, find your own style and open up to a new world of creative possibilities.

This is an online course with lessons posted daily, Monday-Saturday, for five weeks. The password-protected classroom will be accessible to you 24/7 from anywhere in the world (and for six months after class finishes), so you can dive in whenever it suits you. You do not need to be online at a specific time, so it does not matter what time zone you are in.

Your Investment + What You will Need to Participate

Bloom True: the e-course is available for $297

(Please note materials are not included in the course fee. See this page for details of what you will need for class).

From what we hear, this could be the most valuable investment you will ever make in your creative life :)

Please note that all the videos are shot in HD and are high quality so you will need a fairly high speed internet connection to view them. We are not able to provide alternative viewing options for people on dial-up or slow connections so please bear this in mind when registering. (If you are not sure, click on the video at the top of this page – if you can view this you should be fine with the e-course class videos).

Again, this is not a course about replicating an image of what is in front of you, or even knowing what you will paint before you begin.  Instead, this process encourages you to allow your paintings to emerge organically in unexpected ways as a result of listening to your intuition, trusting and being brave.


This course is for you if:

You want to discover a unique and liberating approach to painting which can translate into all areas of your life.

You want to let go, be bold and unfold in ways you’ve never imagined.

You are prepared to take risks, be brave and trust in this unique and unknown process (awkward “teenage” stages and all).

You are ready to feel the fear of the unknown, but take the leap anyway!

This course is NOT for you if:

You are looking for a course with specific step-by-step painting techniques/instructions that will lead you to a predictable outcome.  Although many techniques will be shared in this course, this is much more about discovering a new intuitive approach to creating rather than following specific guidelines — just wanting to be clear on that.

This is a wildly popular course – previous classes have SOLD OUT!
