From the Eye to the Easel
Nature has a simple way of putting things together, and once you learn her tricks, you have a way of understanding any creative project you will want to tackle. For the beginning painter, the first thing you learn is to let the brush do the work for you. Painting is a right-brain activity, and once you get in the zone, your blood pressure drops, and the painting practically paints itself. See supply list below.

Activate Your Creativity
Are you feeling stifled creatively? Suffering from “writer’s block” or too scared of rejection to try something new? Maybe you’ve always wanted to choreograph a dance or write a novel, but keep convincing yourself that you can’t. This class is designed to foster creativity and heal our artistic wounds. Using exercises from the text, The Artist’s Way, as well as other art and psychology books, we will make discoveries about ourselves as artists and take the first steps toward new creations. All artistic mediums welcome.
