About Us

Molly & Rinske

Smart Art Courses was founded by Molly Leach (Molly’s Artistry) and Rinske Douna – 2 internationally-known artists. 

Upon meeting in 2019 we discovered an instant connection that would evolve into a lasting friendship. In just a few short years, the vision for Smart Art Courses emerged, with the first course co-authored by Molly, Rinske, and Olga Soby. The positive response from our students was both humbling and inspiring, motivating us to expand our educational community.

Fueled by the enthusiasm of our students, we decided to transform into a comprehensive art course platform, providing a diverse range of tutorials from various authors. The journey has been exciting, and we are grateful for the continuous growth and development, both personally and artistically.

At Smart Art Courses, we cherish the incredible community that has evolved alongside us. We express our heartfelt gratitude to all our students who have been part of this journey. Together, we celebrate creativity, growth, and the joy of artistic expression. Join us as we continue to learn, create, and inspire! Happy Painting!
