A self-taught, professional painter since 2003, and creative facilitator since 2006, I've taught over 1000 students of all ages across North and Central America.
Welcome! I'm Daina Deblette, the artist and teacher behind Ocean Art Studio + Gallery on Salt Spring Island, BC Canada.
I'm thrilled to announce my new passion project, many years in the making: The Creative Courage Online School of Art. My studio workshops and art camps will soon be going online for everyone to enjoy!
This will be an inspiring place where I invite you to give yourself permission to explore your unique creative voice through various media. Join me as I guide you through watercolour painting + journaling, oil + acrylic painting, virtual paint parties, DIY kids art projects, and more.
