Recently I had a dear friend tell me about a new place in town where I can go and learn the steps to paint a picture. Now I must say that I have always had a dream of sitting in front of a canvas and turning it into something special. But the truth is I can’t even draw a stick figure. It is crazy as I seem to be the only one in my family that does not have an Artistic side as both of my Grandmothers have painted some great pictures and my Brothers and Mom do amazing pencil sketches. This however is something that I have never been able to do. But since my daughter is artistic I thought I would give it a try.
My daughter and I headed down town and found out we were the only one’s signed up for the Saturday Family Day. We walked in and I let her choose the painting that she wanted to learn. She chose a beautiful Sunset painting. I was intimidated but thought I might as well give it a try.
During the session the teacher walked us through step by step. It was amazingly simple and not something I ever thought I could do! We had a blast and our paintings turned out amazing! My daughter even added a lot of great sea creatures to her’s and we had a blast!
If you are looking for a great family day where you can learn something new with your family then you might want to check out a paint studio. You might be able to find one close to you as I hear they are becoming a fade and popping up all over the country! It really is a blast and well worth it!
