Creativity Through Home Art and Camaraderie

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

BYOB painting
The instructor, unfortunately, has not been a teacher. She knew some techniques and then she had obviously led this lesson several times in the past, but she wasn't attuned to her students. We plodded, she yapped; we waited and she yapped some more. It was clear that this slowest painter was never gonna finish but we patiently killed time just the same. During this "free" time the trainer filled any empty spots of air with criticism to her fledgling artists: "Too much color", "Stop attempting to fix that mess", and "Please quit" were a few of her remarks. Really enables you to want to paint, don't you think?

But the class had been fun because I was with friends and dibbling around with colors is entertaining and critiquing non-teacher types is more so. As a result I made a decision to host my own paint and sip with no pressure applied. Ten friends gathered inside my home one evening excited to evaluate this activity. Each easel was full of a clean canvas, water and brushes were prepared, and an array of paint drops filled each pallet. I had created a finished example to express 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, how you can cover errors with white, tools designed for special touches, and the like. For those who were too nervous to self-launch, I led them step-by-step over the process. For those who simply wanted to plunge, I let them go with maximum freedom.

As my pals painted, I wandered, offered advice, explored other bottle shapes and backdrops on the web, and commended their efforts. Although some replications were somewhat on the mysterious side, just like the command "draw a bottleneck approximately 1-inch wide" produced tiny traces and thin lines instead, though the idea was creativity understanding that was just how some translated my make an effort to their canvas. Others, with amazing vision, added dogwood blossoms, fancy wine labels, and intricate designs with delicate shades. The inner personality was exposed together with imagination and magical conceptualizations in every painting. The finished products were fantastic.
