Art Instruction, Learning to Paint as an Activity

Blue Morning

Retirement is the perfect time
for Art Instruction and Painting Activities!

Everybody wishes at some time that they could capture a beautiful image as they see it. It may be a stunning landscape, an awesome display of wildlife, a spectacular floral display or a humble farm.There are thousands of images that evoke feelings of deep connectedness with the earth. They calm us and give us ease. Each one speaks to us personally with bright or muted colors and unique shapes. Retirement can be the perfect time to learn and enjoy this hugely rewarding activity.

The talent to produce these images lies within most of us. It doesn't matter what age you are. Most of our education has led us away from this inner sense of the beauty and form that surrounds us. We are conditioned from an early age not to see what is in front of our eyes. Learning to paint can help us see again as a child sees, with wonderment and joy at the beauty that surrounds us.

Listed below are some links that will help you to learn more about painting and get you started on the painting project that best suits your needs and available time.
