My friend Lisa Howell has partnered with me to put on a "March Mindfulness Paint Class!"
The other week I attended one of her paint classes for her business, Paint Me Pretty. That one was themed specifically around self-care. I left the boys at home, learned some watercolor techniques, enjoyed some great company, and didn't think of laundry or work or what to make for dinner once!
It was a beautiful reminder for me that sometimes doing something that I might consider out-of-the box for me (like going to an art class) can provide a healthy reset button in my go-go-go get-stuff-done heart. I came home with some really cute projects and a fresh attitude of calm for my family.
This one will be an abstract paint class. The image to the right is not our specific painting but is an example of a painting that develops from this type of class. No experience (or even interest!) in art to attend! Yep, you don't even have to be interested in painting to enjoy this night! I've worked with ladies where this was their first artwork as an adult and they raved about the experience!
We will combine the practice of self-care and mindfulness with the experience of create a unique piece of art.
Lisa has been cooking up some inspirational paint classes to fulfill a passion that has been welling up within her. There has always been a stigma attached to mental health but she thinks we are all becoming more comfortable with the idea that we can all use a little help pertaining to internal wellness and mindset. This will be a safe space where we can freely, yet privately, work through the negative thoughts that are absorbed subconsciously throughout the busyness of life and no fault of our own. You will take home this abstract work of art to be your daily reminder that you are more than your failures/mistakes. My aim is not to just make you "feel-good" but to discuss ways to embrace all the highs and lows of our being. We just have to be brave enough to show up, accept who we are, and learn healthy ways to respond to all circumstances that come our way. Join us to see what these are all about and join this new community of friends!
