I have been busy lately doing what I like to do. During the winter it is easier to stay inside, and I really like introducing adults into the awesome world of creating art.
Partnering with Wonderfully Made, an organization that empowers families to raise socially and emotionally healthy children to foster positive and meaningful relationships at home and in a school setting; we created a free workshop for parents to spend the night on their own. Sometimes taking the time for yourself is not easy with children around. We shared a magical night creating Ink-Blots and sharing stories. We started a series Bringing Art Into My Life will continue with similar events soon.
I also lead the Paint the Night Away event with BxArts Factory, where a group of adults replicated a painting I designed specially for that night. I really enjoyed teaching them about color mixing and empowering their creativity to take over their fears of "Am I doing it wrong?" I will be teaching more of those events soon.
