that's now.

but this is all I had when i started...
places to be PRO Course 2.jpg

I began my career with just my sketchbook and a Student version of Photoshop. And that's still how I work. I may have ditched the CDs, but my process is the same, if not faster. My heart is in my art. I'm eager to get off the screen and back to the art table. And that's where you belong, too. 

You make some beautiful work, you just need a streamlined process to turn your art from sketchbook to designs, over and over. You can create stand-alone placement designs and as repeat patterns--both retaining the integrity and delicate texture of your original work!

so, is your art ready?

Let's check!


Honey, you know that art could go places. You see it all the time. The simplest of paintings often make the BEST designs! 

is your heart ready?

Does this describe you?

You are a traditional artist---meaning, you enjoy painting and love the way it looks! 

You find yourself thinking, "I could do that!" while shopping for new towels.

You've heard of or dabbled in Photoshop, but realize there's much more to explore.

You want the fully-engaged learning experience without the full-on course load.

Am I talking to YOU?! If you're feeling this in your gut, keep scrolling. I want to unpack what all this stirring within adds up to.

responses to the pro course
from past alumni

"This course definitely pulled me out of a rut of not doing art and not thinking my work was 'good enough' and getting stuck in perfectionism... instead of doing! I am excited to make progress and build an art practice and a portfolio and see what I can do with it!”

- Azure

"I have done many watercolors in the past but have since stopped because I wasn't sure how to put my paintings in a format that could be licensed. Amarilys showed me the way and now I feel as though I have the tools.”

- Tracey

"I just love Amarilys and I love this community. She is so consistent with all that she offers.

- Shellie

"I have used Photoshop for years, but learned more during this class! The best part of being in the PRO Course was that it opened my eyes to the possibilities of how I can use my artwork.”

- Sherry

"Everything she teaches sticks to you right away. She always proveds good knowledge and is a step ahead to guide you no matter what level you are at. Thank you, Amarilys, for your guidance and your love!”

- Marilyn

lingering questions, answered

Tell me more about the Lives.

All Live sessions will be hosted on Zoom at either 7pm CST or 10am CST on Mondays, Thursdays or Saturdays. Replays will be placed in the course curriculum for easy access.

What repeat pattern method is taught?

All teaching will be using Adobe Photoshop. Amarilys will teach her simple way of making patterns, the same she uses for her licensed fabric lines. A lesson on Pattern Preview will also be included in the course.

Will this course be offered again this year?

Sorry, no. Why? Because Amarilys likes to paint, too! You will have to wait until next year.

Do you teach pitching?

General business practices are discussed in week 5. Amarilys will also share next steps and her recommended courses as needed for further learning.

What is your refund policy?

Refund requests will be accepted before 4/25/22 via email. No documentation needed, optional exit survey will be requested for the betterment of the course.

Do I need PC or Mac?

The software is the same, the only difference being keyboard shortcuts which will be shown in both ways. You may use whichever system you prefer, but will need to have Adobe Photoshop. Instructions to access program at the lowest will be sent over email before class starts.

Do you offer discounts?

No discounts other than for alumni. It's simpler this way. No early rush, no hype, just genuine takers. The course price is absolutely fair for the level of education and guidance. The reviews speak for themselves!

How big will the class be?

Boy, that's hard to predict. But the commitment to maintaining a warm class community is a priority. A final headcount will be shared just before the course begins.

Do you offer a Payment Plan?

Yes! Click here for the three-part payment option. Third-party financing is also supported on the main check out page.

Feeling too green? Too old? Not tech-savvy enough?

It's not at all my desire to cajole anyone. That just wouldn't make the course fun! But do give me the chance to share personal testimonials from others with similar former apprehensions. Happy to answer further questions.

How long will I have access?

At least a year and as long as the course is technically supported. If any interruption were to occur, students will be emailed access to a back-up platform.

Do I have to take the PRO Course to be in the Inner Circle?

Yes. Content from the course is referenced as a base understanding of the principles and community ethos of the Inner Circle. If you'd like ongoing mentoring after May, add it at checkout.
