Art & Inspiration is your happy place with
Monthly Collage & Mixed Media Inspiration, Tutorials & Courses
to evolve your art and for connecting with like-minded people -
so you can grow as artist no matter where you are now.

You're looking for inspiration because you don't know how to get started  and you spend all day looking for ideas on the internet?

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 feedback?

You love to work with different materials but find it difficult to bring it all together to create a successful composition?

Sounds like me at the beginning of my art journey:
I collected all kinds of art supplies but didn't know where to start, staring at the blank page and was afraid of failure. Many times, I felt stuck in ruts. 

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.



Just a few lines to say that I think this is a wonderful idea! I admire your professionalism and your entrepreneur spirit!! I would love to be part of this club, although I never have time, I will do it and find the time! Watching your videos and path is a true inspiration!!


I'm excited too. Lydia has such great ideas on how to get creative. Her workshops are fantastic, great and explained in detail, with examples, her monthly inspiration in A&I are good tips to try out and her support in the community is extraordinary. Equally interesting are the contributions and discussions of the members.

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

Is all of the content available straight away or is it time-released (drip fed)?

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.

I like to work at my own pace, is that a problem?

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.

Will there be an online community?

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.

How do you know if the A & I Membership is for me?

This is for you if...

  • you love to learn new techniques to grow
  • you want to learn how to create collages and mixed media work you really love
  • you are feeling stuck with your creativity and don't know how to rediscover the joy and value of experimenting
  • you want to discover art making
  • you want to let go, learn to play and step out of your comfort zone to create more art
  • you are looking for a group of like-minded people to exchange ideas with in a safe space

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.

What if I don't have time to use all the content?

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!

What if I don't enjoy the Art & Inspiration Community Membership?

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

What happens if I decide to cancel my membership?

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 from within your account page.

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.

Any other question?

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 email@lydiarink.de and we'll help you out.

"Fall in love with the process and the results will come."
