Lots of things can hold us back from
becoming the artist we're meant to
be. Children have it until somebody
tells them that they're doing it wrong,
that their colors don't really match
the real world, or that they're just
not good enough. The genius inside
dies a small death... and the joy in
creating goes away. The good news
is that, with proper guidance,
patience, and care, we can learn to
create again.

After years of experience as a fine artist, with trial and error I discovered that using a framework, I could accomplish a tremendous amount in a small period of time. And not only did I begin to make more paintings, more good paintings consistently, but I found myself painting more freely and fearlessly, without all those self-doubts that had crept in. I was happier... painting more "in the flow", and winning more awards and recognition. You too can learn how to rediscover your creative spark.

Thursdays 6pm-8pm and Saturdays 1pm-3pm.
