Mentor: Learn More

"You can not use up creativity, The more you use, the more you have"


I believe that there is no right or wrong way to paint/draw as you explore the depths of your creative mind.  When you bring art into your world, your mind is given a different mode of expressing ideas, feelings, frustrations, and joys.  Today more than ever people of all ages need creative outlets to balance all the tech, social, stress, and environmental conditions.  What you learn in the studio will help the flow in other areas of your life.  Art isn't about the price tag, it's about who you are when you started and who you are when the project ended.  The progress you make during the lesson,  is the ultimate goal.  

Many people avoid being creative because they think it has to be perfect. Perfection is a state of perception, and every single human on this planet has a different idea of PERFECT.

There is no such thing as perfect, the othing thing that is perfect in this world is CHANGE.

So Throw out whatever is holding you back from Learning more, its easier than you think.

Each Class:

The beginning of each class is a slideshow and demonstration by Lovejoy for the topic of the day. A small project on topic is given for the class, Lovejoy will help each student individually and offer constructive criticism for areas of growth. . Some work will need to be completed at home and  assignments  will be recommended in between classes

My groups are growing, get 3 or more people together and we can meet once a week, bi weekly or once a month.
