I did a post a few weeks back about the final project I did for my most recent painting class a few months ago. Several years ago I also took drawing and all sort of wonderful classes while doing a certificate in Fine Art Techinques at Emily Carr University of Art and Design.
At the time I began classes I was struggling with an illness and was unable to do many of the things that I loved doing previously. But I had always wanted to take art and it was something I could do. So I took one class and my first teacher was so supportive and told me I actually had talent and should continue to so signed up for the certificate. I can honestly say that art helped me stay sane while cooped up. If you have never taken a class or painted a painting or done a drawing since grade school – but you would like to – you are where I was back then. I encourage you to take the leap you never know what might come of it.
