Even though I live and work in an extremely creative environment, I find I still get in a creative rut from time to time.  What helps?  Finding a creative outlet outside my comfort zone.  Recently, that looked like a painting class from the talented (and lovely) Britt Bass Turner.  

Truthfully, I thought I had simply signed up for a day of painting, drinking mimosas and gabbing; which we did of course.  But I also gained so much practical knowledge.  From the types and different characteristics of paint, blending, painting techniques, and even a little history.  And while I may be a creative person in some arenas, I am in no way a great creative painter, sketcher, or drawer, so I was surprised I found the whole experience freeing, and even more so – quite calming.  I wasn’t thinking about what had to be done later that day, or deadlines I was up against.  The only thing on my mind was what colors I was creating and pattern I was painting.     

In Britt’s own words, she designed the workshop to be a completely hands-on, fun place to explore and enjoy the process of play.  Providing an avenue to share and support the power of community.  Though Britt is now only offering 4 quarterly STUDIO SESH classes a year (sign up for her newsletter to find out when the next dates are released), she does offer STUDIO SESH IN A BOX.  SS in a box provides you all the materials and education you would receive in class, minus Britt of course.

So whether it be painting, drawing, dancing, cooking, or anything else that opens you up and inspires, I urge you all to push your limits and find a place to create.  Tell me, do you have a creative outlet?  Truly, MKR
