For quite some time, I've witnessed friends and acquaintances talk themselves out of painting because they are intimidated by the process and/or they think they are not qualified to partake in the act of painting. I understand how they feel becasue I felt the same way once.
But during the past 2+ years, as I've taken the plunge into the world of painting, I've experienced a kind of joy that can't be found anywhere else but a room filled with paints, brushes, and canvases. I still struggle with my inner critic as I wonder whether I'm qualified and worthy to paint. I don't think there is an artist out there who doesn't.
Several people over the last few months have asked if Studio CRESCENDOh could offer a painting class designed for the true beginner where we can discover the mechanics, tackle the fears, and experience the first steps related to the joy and freedom of painting.
I'm excited to announce Painting by Heart—a 1-day painting class designed for the beginner. It will take place in Studio CRESCENDOh this October and you can enroll right here.
EDIT: This class will be offered on two different dates:
- Saturday, October 19th
- Monday, October 21st
Please indicate at the time of enrollment which date you would like to attend. Thank you.
If you are able and if you want to, I hope you'll join me and fellow students for a lot of fun in Studio CRESCENDOh ... a room that is well-lit, safe, accepts all, and delights in the discovery of creativity.
See you in the studio. :)
