A Year of Painting Giveaway!

52 treasuresSo the time is drawing near to begin a fresh 365 days of my most popular e-course to date, A Year of Painting. What an enriching and whole-hearted experience the first year was. It warms my creative heart to read the feedback given, with phrases coming out from participants like now I believe “anything is possible”, and “this class means the world to me”, along with “what you are doing is beyond what I can express in words, with others calling this experience is “priceless”, or “my soul is forever touched” and so forth. I mean it’s a humbling thing for me to read as facilitator—hugely touching. How over-the-moon thankful I am that my teaching has the ability to connect to each individual. That was my word for last year— CONNECTION. I was recently pondering the synchronicity of that, and boy was this year all about it. I fell madly in love, moved in with my partner (it’s been 6 or so years since I have lived with anyone really, as that is how long I have been divorced), I ran multiple e-courses all which sailed high and brought in more ways for people to connect, and so on. So that single intention of CONNECTION was like a golden woven thread through out my days and months. How powerful and invaluable it is to place a seed for the year…

blog2And with all of these gifts, comes another gift for this beloved course… a new book deal. That’s right, A Year of Painting will now be a treasured book for others to enjoy and will come out in a year or so. It will feature many artists from the first year and more. So since the energy of giving and receiving keeps our life force moving, I will continue that sacred tradition on today, along the holiday spirit just around the corner.blog5b

I have decided to give away 5 whole spots to A Year of Painting. (And since many of you have purchased, no need to fret, you can also enter too and if you win I will refund your payment—all good). That is a $249 value and a year of support and learning for your intuitive, playful, and expansion for the depths of your creative well. We learn and experience so much in this class and the pacing is perfect for our everyday lives.


Here is how you can enter:

  1. Sign up for my museletters if you have not already done so.
  2. Share the A Year of Painting page on Facebook and why this would make a wonderful gift to oneself or another.
  3. Email your close friends/family and copy our email info@alenahennessy.com with a link sharing why you want to take this class.
  4. Then leave a comment on this post and let me know which ones you have done. Each will count as an entry!


So if you do every one of those I would say you have very good chances of winning with 5 spots being given away, This year we had 450 on-fire and unique artists (at all levels, beginning to experienced) who utilized the group in such a sweet and, dare I say it… connected way.


Good luck and here’s to another year of inspired art-making and living…


The winners are:

Renee di Pietro
Suzanna Gaal
April Huning
Najma Martens
Bonnie Smith

Thank you for everyone who entered! For those wishing to be a part of this experience, you can still sign up here.

all my love,

    1. I am 61, just became an empty nester, and was telling my bestest friend last night that I want to PAINT! I took lessong when I was pregnant with my 2nd child, 29 years ago. Now my 19 year old has left home, my last child, and it’s time for ME! I was sad at first, but already 2 weeks into being alone, I am grateful for this phase of my life. I found you on Marianne Mitchell’s fb page tonight, and it feels like divine intervention. Keeping my fingers crossed! XXXOOO

  1. All the task have been completed. I would absolutely love to win this class. I have been just trying to get back into my creative side. I would love to share this with everyone.

I’m looking forward to the collective accountability and new perspectives into my painting. Also excited about the chances to win a reimbursement. It was a stretch for me.
    I’ve shared often about the course on my Facebook page, personally invited friends and sent emails. Newsletter was signed up for as soon as I saw your art! Fingers crossed!

    And a win would be phenominal. Breath…………..

  19. dear Alena, I was so inspired by reading your website and looking at your art that I registered on two of your courses!! Iphoneography and a Year of Painting. Then I told my friends and got TWO to join already!!! But you are absolutely right why stop there!!! So I am sharing on Facebook, am already on your Museletter (love love love the name!!), and I continue sharing with friends and homeschoolers by emails. Oh and yes Pinterest!!!

    I just started the Iphoneography course and I love your way of teaching, showing, peacefully. It’s inspiring. Both a class and a meditation in the same time. I got my material and must say that it’s a bit more expensive than I thought. Winning the course cost would be absolutely grand.

    I am thinking of two other friends in high schools and am posting a link of your courses on my homeschooling list. Get ready to have students and their parents register!!!

    The gift of art is the most amazing gift. It touches , inspires and heals. Thank you for helping me go back to my roots. Thank you.

  59. Just signed up for the museletter 🙂 I recently bought your painting workshop book as an inspirational Christmas present for myself and would love the opportunity to do your course!

  60. Alena this is such a beautiful thing and you have such a beautiful heart. I very recently was inspired by my 10 year old daughter who took a manga art class at a local art gallery over the summer. I’ve always had a creative side but never really put much into it except for words that came through my intensly passionate thoughts. So I picked up some cheap acrylics and brushes, YouTubed a million tutorials, liked every art page I could possibly find and quickly found that while I judge myself in every aspect of my life harshly I find the strokes that I have put on my cheap canvas make me smile and feel proud. Between my husband and I we have 7 children all together and we have been experiencing life together with our pretty new family dynamic and with that we sometimes lose ourselves in the normal everyday challenges that a large family holds. I yearn to pursue my newfound passion in fine arts and do some soul searching in the process so that I myself can feel whole while hoping to create something lucrative for my family. I would love the opportunity to take this course and journey with you! <3 love and light

    1. I also have shared the Facebook page, the giveaway post and emailed all of my contacts the museletter<3 good luck everyone 🙂

  86. Hi there and thanks for the opportunity to win. I did all 3….shared on fb, emailed, and signed up for the museletter. Thanks again for generously offering these 5 free spots!!! Cynthia

  87. This has been a challenging year for me with serious health issues, however, I am on the mend and looking forward to beginning the new year in a positive, creative way. Winning one of these spots would jump start my creativity in 2015.

  88. Hello beauty!

    Gosh, I’m so glad that I saw your post! Count me in.
    I tend to do things with my whole heart and soul, so I would certainly give it my all if given the chance.

    Last winter, I formed a women’s circle with friends here in Portland and we gathered weekly as we worked our way through Flora’s e-course. It was such a potent process and important and healing, and SO. MUCH. FUN!
    So, thanks for the inspiration today – I wrote to them about your course, and invited them to sign up for the course, and even enter the giveaway today, too! It would be so lovely to form a local circle again, this time with your prompts to play around with. I wonder how many people in your course are in Portland OR?

    I also posted on facebook, and updated my preferences for your museletter so you have my new email address.

    XO and thank you for the invitation to enter.

  89. I would so love to win a spot on your course!! What an Ah-mazing way it would be to start the year!! Have shared on my fb page, already subscribed to your newsletter & I would share it with all my friends with email except I don’t have their email addresses…

  90. Only Sunshine Lives Here…chase away the Winter Blues with a heavy dose of warmth via art and friendship. I loved this class! Posted to my Facebook.

  91. O I would SOOO love to win this..I have shared on Facebook, signed up to the musings newsletter, stretched my computer skills to the limit and sent the emails with the link!! and have decided to like your Facebook page too, as realise what you do, indeed your whole approach to art throughout it is so me and that I would have connected anyway (now I know of you) due to this, and needing desperately to join with others to move me positively on from a period of intense lowness and chaos back to my artistic self..and maybe be inspired to shift some of the (albeit art/craft-associated) clutter and disorder that have built up in this period and that still prevents me from creating in my own space fully again. I hope the support and focus and magic will reignite who I truly am again through a resurgence of my own creativity and work, both artistic and spiritual.

  92. Posted on my artist Facebook page. Already receive your lovely newsletter. I’ve been wanting to delve into your Painting Workbook more. Maybe I’ll try one prompt a week for 2015 – a year of painting with you : )

  93. Cant wait to recieve your newsletter – have subscribed – also have posted on my face book page. will be putting an email together with a brief explanation as to why I want to win this course – Have liked your beautiful FB page – Done all of it as I really want to win this course- it would be a fantastic opportunity- I love colour and I love your work -thank you
    I am new at painting…. 🙂

  100. I’ve signed up for your Museletters. I’ve just found the courage to pursue my creative urges that have laid dormant for years because I haven’t had the confidence to follow them. I’ve just finished an online class with Flora and fallen in love with painting. An artist friend in our group shared your link, and I was amazed to see it, as I had just discovered your book ‘A Painting Workbook’, which arrived yesterday! Serendipity at its best! I would love the chance to win this…I’m a single mum with a disabled child and I don’t have the resources to buy the course, but it would be so lovely to stay connected with the artist ladies I have met in the last few weeks who have signed up for this course too.

  117. I signed up for the museletter some time ago. I came across your work through Lifebook and enjoyed your lesson the most out of that whole year. I would love to dive deeper with you next year. Fingers crossed perhaps I will be lucky. I haven’t paid yet as I am hoping the Aussie dollar will go up a bit in the next few days!

  122. Hi Alena,
    I signed up for your musings, shared on Facebook and left a comment.

    Thank you for doing this giveaway. I love your work and missed you when you were here in Portland Oregon. I am hoping and praying that I will have the opportunity to join you this year for your class.

  123. Hopefully I will be extremely happy on Christmas Day with the news of a win. I have joined up to Museletters and shared on Facebook.

  124. Hi – I love your site! I have signed up for your newsletter, posted on facebook, and emailed some friends and family about your course! xoxo Merry Christmas

  125. This is so awesome! I’m just starting to figure out my creative path..so many things I would love to do–your book is a wonderful start as I follow the artistic path. I shared on FB and signed up for newsletter. Thank you

  126. I joined your newsletter and shared your Facebook page with my Dad; I’m trying to win this class for him! He recently retired and is finally coming back to painting!

  127. So kind of you to offer these five scholarships. I have never done much in the way of art, but whenever I do — even decorating Easter eggs — I do get SO into it. However, the person I would really love to have win this is my sister Julie, who has had a lot of heartache over the last few years and would really benefit from having something to do with her hands that she could put her whole heart into, that — hopefully — would be a really healing thing for her.

  128. Greetings to you, and yours, may your holidays be filled with joy, great health, abiding love, peace, and cheer!

    I have subscribed to your news letter, liked your facebook page and gladly shared your post to let the world know of your kindness.

    Good luck to one and all!

    Warmest regards,

  129. Signed up for museletters, shared on FB and personally invited friends via email…

    Why I’d like a place in A Year of Painting… in the past few months, we sold/gifted & donated our home, business and almost all of our belongings and relocated to Europe with just one suitcase each (and one small satchel for my art materials). I’m immersed in a huge life transformation that I would love to capture and express through my art-making. As I navigate the shift, my responsibilities to others and the new directions in my art, it would be wonderful to have a grounded, structured practice to help me re-find my own centre and guide my unfolding.

  130. hi Alena,

    1. Thank you for the welcome gift, it´s truly awesome. I will print: -She loved live and it loved her right back-
      Be blessed

  147. Hi, I posted on Facebook, signed up for your museletter, sent an email to several people and am commenting on this post. Thank you so much!!

  148. I shared the good news of this class on Facebook & subscribed to the email newsletter which I love getting good news. Good luck to all of us and happy holidays to us all God bless

  149. Alena, I did all three things you asked us to do. =)
    What a fun thing this would be to win!!
    I am 62, about 30 plus years ago I took one class to make a painting but have not done anything since then til this year. I am in love with art and learning so much – you can teach an old dog new tricks!

  150. “When the student is ready the teacher will appear.” is so fitting for me. I signed up for the muse letter and emailed others about this class. Thanks for all of sharing your inspiration! Merry Christmas.

  151. I have signed up for the newsletter, sent an email and posted on Facebook. This class is exactly what I need to get back on track with painting. It’s so easy to let other aspects of life take priority and having a class format would help me to build the the habits I need. Thanks!

  152. What a spectacular piece of synchronicity finding you just now. I’m embarking on an inner journey in the New Year. I’ll be undistracting myself from most of the outside world and almost all of social media… for although I love looking at the art everyone shares, I feel the need to forge a deeper connection with my own muse. I’ve shared your Facebook page and signed-up for your museletter ;)) <3

  153. What a wonderful Christmas gift (for myself) this would be!!! And, that is what is so fabulous about the opportunity – I have spent the last 16 years giving anything ‘extra’ to my kids that only now am I now ready and open to start exploring different paths for myself….I signed up for your museletter and shared on FB.

  154. Guess what, my mom is signing up for a year of painting because of the email I sent her yesterday. Maybe that will give me a bonus entry into the drawing 😉

    I can’t wait to start this class! It will be even more fun to do it alongside my mom.

    Cheers and Merry Christmas, Alena.

  155. Alena, thank you so much for this giveaway opportunity!! I signed up for your muse letter, shared the page on FB (and tagged you) and also shared your giveaway announcement post on FB. I emailed my best friend about your course and the giveaway so she might enter as well, and of course cc’ed you on that email. Thanks again!!

  156. Hi Alena,
    I’ve signed up for the news letter and shared you on Facebook! In 2014 I participated in Lifebook as a happy accident. I loved it. You lesson was a favourite! I would love to work with you this year because I resonate with your earth connectedness and spirituality. The lacy beauty of a west coast vanilla leaf skeleton has captured my attention with its possibility this week…and I remembered to complete this comment. I’d love to accompany you on my artful journey in 2015!

  157. I have pinned and shared and posted and prayed about the wonderful opportunity of taking your class!!!
    I am so excited that at a local art supply in my city wants me to teach different classes to beginners and seniors and youngsters in our community….Now I just need your tools to share with them one week at a time….. And then. expose them to your online E classes!!!!

  158. Wood furniture possesses something quite all natural concerning it.

    There is this feeling of comfort, of attribute and of luxury that could be be found in hardwood furnishings.
    Wood is birthed from the earth. It feeds the fire, disintegrates in to ashes and also blows away.
    It is actually very close to the human existence in the world.

    May be actually that is why it resonates a great deal with us.
    May be actually that is actually why you still obtain that cozy emotion when you contact a wealthy mahogany desk.
