Why this class? If you are here, you probably know!
I created this class because I struggled with finding time to paint! To make it a priority. And I well knew that the more you paint the better you get. It is very easy to say! I knew the theory, but how put it into practice when you have so much to do every day?
I surrounded myself with successful artists that paint daily, followed their blogs, brought them to town, coordinated their workshops, took their workshops, many times!, and joined painting challenges on Facebook, where you paint one painting a day for 5 days and post them. All great tools! But, after the workshops, the challenges, everything went back to where It was: finding it hard to make time to paint. (And I wasn’t the only one! After 9 years coordinating painting workshops I heard the same struggle from many workshop students.)
In 2018 I finally did it! I painted most days. How did I do it? I did some serious research on habit formation and also a fantastic opportunity showed up. I’ll share all I learned with you during the time we spend together. I’ll guide you to find your happy habit of painting, yes yours! We are all different and have different needs, routines and activities, but we all can create a habit if we really want to, have the right tools, the right motivation and feel accountable. This class will give you all that! You just bring the “really wanting to” part 😉
This class will offer you:
Accountability (we will work together for a month)
The right motivation and practical ideas
Fun painting exercises that will help you create the habit of painting.
Weekly painting time together (you will start and finish a painting when we meet)
A mini tribe of like minded people with the common goal of creating the happy habit of painting most days. This tribe is growing!
…And of course, coffee or tea! (part of the motivation 😉
