Are dusty art supplies nagging you?  When you make art do you hear “This should be better?”  This workshop will help quiet/manage your inner art critic and rediscover the love of creating.  We will practice techniques such as suspending judgment, practicing gratitude, mindfulness, sharing our successes, and creating with humility and humor.  Rediscover your first love of art and free yourself to enjoy the flow and joy of creating.

Bring a sketchbook and your preferred art medium.  You are encouraged to bring a project that you are working on.  Prompts will be given during the class and you will be encouraged to work on art between classes.
