Improve artistic skills,

Develop your own artistic style and

Enhance Your Artwork

by joining a community designed to inspire and educate artists

through a structured provision of

Resources, Support and Regular Feedback.

Are you tired of watching endless YouTube videos of different techniques and not knowing how to incorporate them into your art without losing your unique style?

You feel lonely in your art practice and wish you where part of a group to talk and share your work with other artists to spark active discussions and get professional feedback?

You love to work with different materials but find it difficult to bring it all together to create a successful composition? And you crave support in finding your individual artistic voice?

Sounds like me at the beginning of my art journey:
I collected all kinds of art supplies, watched countless YouTube videos but didn’t know where to start, stared at a blank page and was afraid of failing. 

A lot of times I felt stuck because I didn’t know what I needed to change in order to create successful compositions.

What did I change?
I realized that I need to keep creating and exploring to overcome the feeling of stuckness and the fear of failure. This was the starting point for my artistic way.

Over the last years I learned the importance of playfulness and letting go in collage and mixed media art, painting and other creative efforts. And just how magical shared inspiration can be and that a supportive community makes a monumental difference in the artistic journey. Because active, threaded discussions are exchanges that go beyond on-way comments.

Ready to explore new ideas and connect with like-minded people to grow together as artists?

I have loved the Art & Inspiration Community since I joined several weeks ago. There is such a rich variety of learning opportunities available in this community, based on Lydia Rink's excellent instructional videos, but also the collegiality of other members who lend support and assistance to one another's collage postings.

Here’s what you you’ll get when you join

Weekly Inspiration + Support

Weekly collage & mixed-media inspiration that will kick-start your creativity.

Learn new composition skills that you can apply to your own work and create more art that you really love.

Guest artists share their techniques in various tutorials. They also talk about their experiences in interviews.

From the basics of collage and various mixed media techniques to exploring abstract shapes and composition, you can choose what you need to grow as an artist.

Private Community + Paper Pals Collage Club

Use the private community on the Art & Inspiration website to:

improve your artwork by getting professional advice and feedback

You can also use these sessions to get feedback on your artwork.

Get access to step-by-step online courses, tutorials, demos, art challenges, blog posts, art prompts, professional advice and feedback to help you stay in the creative flow and create regularly.

Lydia, you have created an outstanding community; very well thought out in your planning. So happy to be a member. Looking forward to participating and following my artistic journey here.

Sometimes it can be hard to visualize a site like this though,
so if you’d like to take a look behind the curtain and see exactly what you’d be signing up for,
check out this behind the scene video.

I joined the Art & Inspiration Community a year ago after watching her wonderful YouTube demonstration and instructional videos and taking some of her courses. Every month in the Community Lydia provides us with a wealth of resource information and demos about a variety of subjects, techniques, and tools, and challenges us to explore new ways of finding inspiration and creativity. Members share their work, bring up topics for discussion, and learn and find support from each other. Come join us.

Meet your instructor

I’m Lydia Rink, visual artist and creative encourager. I love creating abstract art and I’m a big fan of play and experimentation.

With Art & Inspiration I want to provide a place to build a supportive creative community, a place where your ideas can grow. My greatest hope is that you will enjoy the process of art making and find your unique way to express yourself.

I would love to invite you to join this community and dive into inspiration and mixed-media art making.

Frequently asked questions

You get access to everything already inside the Art & Inspiration community platform straight away! Just jump in and start making.
We regularly update and add new material too – so your content library will continue growing.

There’s two types of people in our membership, some are fast starters, get stuck in and implement really quickly. Others are slow brewers where they take things in bit by bit, and might take several months to get to the point they feel ready to take action. 

Both are totally fine. Instead of this being a $1,000 course that would run away from you, this is a membership that you get to study at your own pace.

Yes! The community platform is the heart of this membership. You’ll find all materials, online courses, tutorials in one place with a community similar to a Facebook group but built on the Art & Inspiration website.

You can post your work, discuss, made new friends, follow them and you even can send private messages. 

A global supportive community for you to learn and grow as an artist no matter where you are now.

Since you can cancel at any time, the best way to know is to simply join for a month and get as much as you can from the courses, tutorials, community, and art challenges available.

The Art & Inspiration Community is like a creative buffet filled with different courses, tutorials, tips, tricks and inspiration to choose from whenever you have time to create.

Sometimes, members THINK they have to consume everything, but you can’t eat everything on the smorgasbord. And sometimes you are more hungry than other times! The main difference is that our content won’t spoil if not consumed!

If for whatever reason you’re not 100% satisfied in any way we have a 60 day money back guarantee (no questions asked). 

Obviously we’d love it if all of our members stuck around forever – but we know that that’s never going to happen! So, if you do decide to cancel obviously we’ll be very sad, but you’ll be able to do so with just a few clicks. Or simply send me an email.

Once cancelled you’ll retain access to the site for any remaining time paid for, after which you’ll lose access to all of the content and community.

If there’s anything at all that you’re not certain about, anything we haven’t made clear; any concerns or questions then please do contact us at and we’ll help you out.

“Fall in love with the process and the results will come.”
