VA265 - Perfection is Overrated

$ 150  


Join Susan for a day of fun therapeutic art exercises as she talks through the destructive standard of Perfectionism. She will encourage you to concentrate on the creative process and how it feeds your soul. She will also explore the power of self talk and the choice to choose happiness is really ours! We will take time as a group to discuss our own struggles with perfectionism.
We will be painting in Golden acrylics and use multiple layers and surprising techniques. We will be sloshing around in the paint with brushes, our fingers, plastic gift cards, water spray, lace, onion bags and who knows what else we might use!

Please note, every students painting will be uniquely theirs, no two will look alike. You will be guided on painting techniques to create your non-objective painting. We will have a blast, there are no rules, except we cannot plan ahead! You will also learn how to "find" things in your painting. We will also learn how to add inspiring words or quotes to your work.
