It is like Christmas every month, something just for me.

I get an amazing painting every month. With my busy schedule... I don’t have time for classes. I am able to do this at my own pace... Those few moments are my downtime, my shut off the world time. Then I wait for my next one to be dropped into my box. It is like Christmas every month, something just for me.

Hi, I'm Christie Hawkins, owner and founder of The Social Easel.

I LOVE to paint and to teach others!

I come from a long line of artists and have been painting since I was a child. Art is part of me and it brings me so much joy! Now I want to bring that joy to you! I believe God created us in His image and since He is the original Creator, that means we are inherently creative too. I believe He gifted us ALL with a creative side! Some of us just aren't sure how to find it.  It is my hope, purpose and passion to help you find that inner artist that I know you have! 

I’ve spent the last 9 years teaching thousands upon thousands of women just like you how to paint. Most of them had never picked up a paintbrush before! I promise you no matter your level, I can teach you how to paint too!

I’ve taken my over 25 years of experience with painting and developed an easy-to-follow system to teach anyone how to paint with no experience needed! 

I can't wait to help you on your creative journey too!
