We caught up with one of our Flavours painting tutors, and we chatted about the advantages of painting in a group setting.
You can find and regain your confidence
Why is it that so many people are reluctant to explore their secret desire to learn how to paint? – That’s easy, lack of confidence!
You probably enjoyed art at school but were dissuaded from developing your experience in order to follow more academic subjects that were perceived as safer career options.
Your confidence has been eroded yet your desire to learn to paint remains.
Solution – Take the scary leap and join a painting class. Okay, you’ll worry your efforts will look pathetic, you’ll look silly alongside others, you’ll just make a mess and leave depressed!
Honestly, that won’t happen.
Art classes are great fun.
It is the perfect way for beginners to start painting
Surprisingly you’re an ideal student to join an art group. For the beginner, the mixed ability of the art classes is a perfect learning environment.
We all enjoy learning as a group and sharing ideas and experiences.
An art teacher can introduce you to painting techniques, and develop your skills while encouraging you to see the world differently.
But your insecurities will be mainly overcome through working with others who, like yourself, have a desire to learn and to paint. There is nothing more satisfying than being part of a community jointly expressing themselves through drawing and painting. The atmosphere is epic! You’ll see how we all respond differently to the same subject. Paintings are individual statements of who you are: your ideas, and your view of the world.
It is a great way to socialise
Painting classes are very social, with opportunities to meet up with other students, to discuss both yours and their work, and to learn from others while also enjoying the concentrated silence of the ‘going into zone’ when painting.
