The Beauty of Painting: Focus of my Workshops

poppies4brighter There is so much beauty in the world but we all haven’t had the time/opportunity/motivation to tap into it. You would be surprised but each person possesses a certain type of creativity. I consider myself a visual artist. My creativity is stimulated by photos and  what I see in front of me. Some people are stimulated by what they read, write, cook, solve, etc. I love working with my hands but it is different than a sculptor loving to work with their hands. When people approach me and say, “I do not have a creative bone in my body,” I never believe them just because I feel like everyone has some type of creativity, but they are either not recognizing it as being creative or not channeling it.poppies1With my workshops I really want to help people channel a creative outlet. You may not be a painter but I feel that if you experiment with one outlet it has the potential to lead you to your true passion. My workshops aren’t only about teaching you skills but they are also a way for you to tap into your creativity. I like my workshops to be more mindful than technical. I like people to work with an open mind and put perfectionism to the side.poppies2

My next workshop is at The Simple Farm. This is the perfect environment to stimulate the mind and senses.  They have beautiful gardens full of flowers, herbs, vegetables, etc. It is lush with greenery and takes you outside the Arizona desert landscape and into a sort of wonderland. Here is what I am striving for in the workshop:

Stimulation of the senses in this lush environment

Learn tips and tricks in painting wildflowers

Explore the imagination and not be concerned with the idea of perfection

Create a beautiful floral piece inspired by the gardens

To continue your search of beauty, I am providing you with a few art materials to take homeguide2

Join me on The Simple Farm May 22nd to channel your creative outlet!

Beverages and Muffins will be served! Register here

Join in on the whole “The Create Series” and sign up for The Florette’s Intro to Foraged Floral Design on May 15th and Lifecreated’s Intro to Photography with Food on May 29th here !
