THE RSOA first edition


  Enroll in Course


- all materials are downloadable, to use at your leisure.

This is your passport into the alchemy of

your unique, immense artistic potential.

These lessons are all easy to follow and they will challenge you to push beyond limits and fears.The classes will give you insight and wisdom that no conventional art school can ever show you, no amateur 'artist' can explain, no uptight rote learning will show... This is THE REAL THING: true, unpretentious, real-artist-led.

There are a total of 77 video lessons (most of which have worksheet alongside) and 10 podcasts, in this first edition of the Real School of Art - see below for lesson plans. Each lesson will set you challenges to inspire and enthuse you on your creative path. Most have an accompanying worksheet with a task.

You might take a whole year to complete all the lessons - or a decade! - or much, much less - YOU decide how much time and energy to invest... and it's all good!

Clare Galloway
Clare Galloway

Having grown up in a tiny mountain village on a Scottish island, I graduated from Glasgow School of Art in 1996 and Edinburgh College of Art in 2007. I've travelled extensively, lived barefoot and free, and explored various creative realms and fields of study, never compromising my deep vision of freeing human creative potential.

In general, I found the 'art world' highly corrupt, hierarchical, and an offense to real creativity, and so I mostly worked outwith conventional realms.

My colourful international career has involved a radical studio practise as well as visionary work transforming community and landscape and contributing to dialogue around transforming human consciousness. I also write passionately on politics, sacred underlying reality, and how we support shifts into more harmonious, healthy, cooperative and fulfilling rhythms of work and life.

I run a magical Arthouse in a previously-abandoned medieval quarter of an Italian hill town. I hold the keys to the city for having brought it to global attention, and several other awards for my art and spiritual values, projects and social entrepreneurship.

My art is in collections around the world, including a large body of work in Glasgow Women's Library.

See more on my website.

I also run an active Patreon campaign, and work one-on-one with guests via Vacation With An Artist.
