Joan Fullerton is an acclaimed international Artist Educator devoted to the upliftment of others. She is an expert creativity coach who inspires uninhibited humor, the ability to trust your impulses and to play like a child.
A non-judgmental approach to artmaking expands students' confidence enabling genuine, expressive paintings. Her fine-art career of 50+ years has produced hundreds of poetic paintings hanging in museums and private collections worldwide.
Fullerton used her MFA painting degree to become an award-winning college art instructor. After 13 years of gaining valuable teaching experience in the classroom, she lived, painted, and exhibited full-time in Taos, NM. When divorce created a need for income, Fullerton evolved her unique teaching methods to a workshop format and moved to the Denver area. As her reputation grew, she widened her reach well beyond the studio. Now Fullerton inspires audiences internationally.
While she has been featured in several television interviews, painting blogs, magazine articles, and books, Joan Fullerton is most proud of her online art experience, "Paint Yourself Free," and her "Bossy Pants Card Deck" of painting prompts.

I attended a 2 day workshop with Joan at her beautiful home in Taos. Joan is a very inspirational artist and I learned so many new techniques. Her workshop provided creative and fun ideas for mixed media art. I am a fan of her abstract art and enjoy learning from Joan. I will definitely take another workshop from her." Debi Stumpff
