My Painting Place is a safe and creative place to express yourself and have fun! Classes are designed to take you into the painting and give your brain a rest from the other thoughts and stresses of the day. You are taken through the process and will learn different strokes, concepts and terms along the way. All students leave feeling proud of their work and positive about their experience. Art, like other subjects, may not come instinctively to everyone, but anyone interested can be taught.
I use a process that was passed down to me from my teacher/mentor. The idea is that drawing, painting, designing and creating original art are very different skills. Very few professions require this much range. Architects design buildings, but building them is a different profession completely. A composer writes the music, but they do not play the music. Putting it all together makes it very difficult to master, but like any other subject it can be learned easily in parts.
After years of accounting, finance, audit and human resources, I took an all day painting workshop. I quit my job and started taking classes. It changed the way I deal with things and how I see the world. I was a shy child and couldn't express myself. Painting gave me a way to express myself without words. It has benefited me immensely. I love to share my love of painting with others. I see the therapeutic impact it has on kids of all ages. The positive effect it has keeps me teaching!
This is a single class where each student paints the same image and the painting is completed during the class and ready to take home and hang on the wall.
This 3 hour class includes all materials and instructions to complete a 16x20 painting. This is a painting class only (no drawing) and is taught using step by step instruction. Each class focuses on different techniques and all skill levels are welcome.
You will be taken through a guided class with step by step instruction to take you into the painting, tapping into your creativity and taking your mind away from your daily stresses. The benefits of giving your mind a rest will help you in other areas of your life. Come in and see what painting can add to your life.
