6 Reasons why you should start to paint in an Artsy Fartsy painting class:

Therapeutic Benefits

Painting is incredibly relaxing and can help reduce your stress levels. While painting, you’ll be able to focus specifically on what you are creating and let everything else go. This has a similar effect on your body as meditation. The result is a positive mindset and a different outlook on the world around you.

Unleashed Creativity

Believe it or not, we all have the makings of a creative genius inside us. Unleashing your creativity allows you to expand your abilities and gain self confidence. The joy of painting comes less from the quality of the painting and more from the satisfaction of creating something amazing yourself. After all, art is an expression of your personality and creativity, which is what makes each piece unique.

Concentration & Perseverance

Creating a painting from start to finish takes time and dedication. During this process mistakes and challenges are constantly being made and overcome. Pushing through this helps improve your ability to concentrate and persevere through new challenges. Taking on a new painting can feel daunting at first, but it’s a highly gratifying experience that will have you wanting more.

Love of Learning & Creativity

Art develops a willingness to explore what has not existed before. Art teaches risk taking, learning from ones mistakes, and being open to other possibilities. Kids who are creative are also curious and passionate about knowing more.

Art Builds Community

Art reaches across racial stereotypes, religious barriers, and socio-economical levels and prejudices. Seeing other culture’s creative expression allows everyone to be more connected and less isolated – “see how we are all related.” Art creates a sense of belonging.

Awakens the Senses

Art opens the heart and mind to possibilities and fuels the imagination. Art is a process of learning to create ourselves and experience the world in new ways. Arts support the bigger picture view of life: beauty, symbols, spirituality, storytelling, it also helps us step out of time allowing one to be present in the moment. Art keeps the magic alive.

Katrina is an amazing art teacher. I had attended paint nights for a couple of years before Katrina started teaching, and I found that the quality of my painting is considerably improved with her teaching style. Her classes are fun, well organized and an overall good time. I recommend that you try out one of her kids classes for a great experience!
