Creating Your Own Personal Map
In this class, we will take you on a personal journey by creating your very own map. It could be a map of your local town, favorite vacation spot, or a journey you are desiring take – your dream journey!
To make this map we will be honing our drawing skills and learning to use Gouache!
This will be a totally fun and free-spirited class!!
You’re welcome to bring some reference photos of your desired location and we will create together! We will also have some suggestions for you both far and near.
This class is a drop-in class: free to members and $20 for non-members.
About the Artist – Kim Nicoll
Pablo Picasso said, “Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once we grow up.”
How true that is. As adults, many of us are inhibited by the way we were raised or our education. Creativity is a need we have that tends to get pushed aside by the “have to’s” in life. Generally, creative expression is considered childish or perhaps a luxury. This was certainly true in my case.
But I discovered that art is in my blood and it is a thrill for me to create! I also discovered that creative expression can be extremely helpful for reducing anxiety. Art is a deeply nourishing and therapeutic process. My six-year-old boy has helped me let my silly side free. It has been an absolute joy to discover the world anew through his eyes. I wish to reveal as much of this as possible in my art.
It’s my goal to nurture in people the inner child or inner artist. It’s in each of us! And the Art Loft is a lovely place to take a class. It is my delight to share the love of life, learning, and creativity with people everywhere, and to help their creativity flourish.
