Drawing & Painting
DRAWING Maybe you're a master doodler or you've thought about sketching but just didn't know where to start. Alpharetta has several venues to help you discover and grow your and talent for drawing! Beyond being quite therapeutic and relief for stress, drawing can provide a feeling of achievement — a way to express yourself uniquely -- and that also provides positive psychological benefits!
PAINTING Move beyond drawing by picking up a brush or palette knife and engaging with a canvas. Play with color, technique, composition, values & hues, different subject matters. Traditional, abstract, conceptual — there are all kinds of ways to explore painting.
Did you know that drawing and painting also improves your creativity, memory, communication and problem solving skills? Along with being both great stress relievers, these skills help you develop optimism, increase emotional intelligence, become more observant and provide better mobility (hand/eye coordination for fine motor skills). So, what are you waiting for? Let's get started!
