About This Class


Have you ever said, "I'm not an artist" or "I can't draw"?

Or have you ever created a piece of artwork and then you looked at it and thought, "my artwork is no good, there's something wrong with it."

Not long ago, I said these same things.

My turning point came when my nieces taught me that art can be fun and it doesn't have to be expensive.

It unlocked a creative side of me that had laid dormant for almost 30 years. 

The #1 thing that will block our creativity is our "stinkin' thinkin'" or mindset issues.

The self-criticism, perfectionism and judgment.

When I first started art, one of the first things art taught me was to let go of control and enjoy the process.

We will create an art piece around these 5 affirmations:

  1. Create without judgment
  2. Learn to relax
  3. Art is unique not perfect
  4. Let go of performance and have fun
  5. There is no right or wrong in art

Art can help you:

Relax and have fun. It's been an amazing form of self-care for me. Discover the power of color. Creating art can bring you so much joy. Create beautiful pieces you can...
