Creativity Through Home Art and Camaraderie

Paint and sip
About a year ago three friends and that i attended a Paint and Sip session. When you visit such an affair you spend a small fee after which receive a blank canvas, a tray of paints, a vino or two (or two) or another beverage of your choice, and also the opportunity to participate in 2-3 hours of "copy art". In copy art, the instructor tells you what to do, then s/he demonstrates so you copy. It is fun, especially for a novice painter for example myself, but it may become tedious if the instructor works with the pace of the slowest painter (not I!) and everyone waits and waits until each attendee is a the same point ahead of the lesson continues. For any speed demon including myself, this sluggish pace did not lead to creativity but alternatively the fatigue of non-participation i really simply abandoned my leader and moved along within own pace. Having a finished product to replicate and occasion listening, I finished up with a fairly decent bottle of wine representation with added touches, dashes, and flourishes of my very own.

The instructor, unfortunately, has not been a teacher. She knew some techniques and then she had obviously led this lesson more than once in the past, but she wasn't attuned to her students. We plodded, she yapped; we waited and he or she yapped some more. It was clear how the slowest painter was never planning to finish but we patiently killed time likewise. During this "free" time the teacher filled any empty spots of air with criticism to her fledgling artists: "Too much color", "Stop wanting to fix that mess", and "Please quit" were just a few of her remarks. Really makes you want to paint, right?

But the class used to be fun because I was with friends and dibbling around with colors is entertaining and critiquing non-teacher types is even more so. As a result I made the decision to host my own paint and sip without any pressure applied. Ten friends gathered within home one evening excited to check this activity. Each easel was full of a clean canvas, water and brushes were available, and an array of paint drops filled each pallet. I had created a finished example to talk about so that I could explain things i had done, when and how, and in addition clarified some important steps just like having a damp canvas, the way to cover errors with white, tools designed for special touches, etc. For those who were too nervous to self-launch, I led them step-by-step from the process. For those who wanted to plunge, I allow them go with maximum freedom.

As my friends painted, I wandered, offered advice, analyzed other bottle shapes and backdrops on the net, and commended their efforts. Even though some replications were a little on the mysterious side, such as the command "draw a bottleneck approximately 1-inch wide" produced tiny traces and thin lines instead, however the idea was creativity knowning that was just how some translated my attempt to their canvas. Others, with amazing vision, added dogwood blossoms, fancy wine labels, and intricate designs with delicate shades. The inner personality was exposed along with imagination and magical conceptualizations in each painting. The finished products were fantastic.
