Your Life’s Palette – Painting for Fun and Relaxation
May 25 @ 10:00 am – 11:30 am

NO EXPERIENCE NEEDED!
What is it? Your Life’s Palette (Creating Your Life) is a fun, informal, and open (meaning you can come as often or as little as you like) group using painting as a means of expression, confidence building, and perhaps, even a way to make friends.
You do not need to know how to paint. In fact, everyone can! Many people are under the mistaken belief that they have “no talent”. The fact is, we ALL have gifts and creativity that lives inside each of us.
While this is not designed as a therapeutic group per se (and therefore, insurance is not billed), there are many benefits to painting and creating. Creating can greatly change and/or enhance your life.  You DO NOT need to be a client to attend!
When: Every other Thursday from 10am-11:30am
Each session, there will be a presentation and instruction (as needed) of a simple subject. You will have the choice to either paint it as is or create your own interpretation of it. It is after all, YOUR creation! There simply is NO right or wrong!
Cost: $35 per session (Payment may be made by visiting our Store/Resource page)
Provided: All supplies including paint, canvas, palettes, brushes, easels, etc.
Space is limited! This is a small group of no more than 5 people. Pre-registration along with payment is required.
Cancellations: Money will be refunded should you need to cancel as long as it is 72 hours in advance as space is reserved on a first-come basis. After 72 hours, you will only receive a refund IF your spot can be filled.
