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
