Creative myth buster! "I don't have space, I don't have time, I don't have the money." What if you didn't need much space, money nor time to express creativity, and yet you would still receive the wellness benefits? I painted this in an 11.5" x 8" notebook on a small glass table with $7 watercolors. No mess, no fuss, and VERY emotionally nurturing and satisfying.

What class/es did you take, and what classes are you currently taking?

I took one of Andy’s painting classes, and I took Drawing at the Met and in Central Park. Now I am in Jake's acrylic class on Sundays. It’s the best part of my week.

What makes your experience at The Art Studio NY unique and memorable?

The people in class and the staff. It’s a very laid back environment that embraces everyone’s artistic abilities.

What is something you have achieved because of your art classes that you never thought you could?

I never thought I would actually get better at painting and I have! Jake has encouraged me to take risks and I do. He’s encouraged me to be more independent and I am. I never considered myself an artist, and I guess it’s safe to say that I am.

What are you most proud of when it comes to your artistic journey?

I remember after my first painting, I asked Jake if I should paint a portrait, and he said I could but he also explained that portraits are really difficult because you really need to know your subject to be able to capture their personality. I decided to paint a portrait of my grandma and mom for a Mother’s Day gift and after completing it, I was SO PROUD!!! I was hooked on portraits and LOVING black and white!

What fears have you overcome, on and off the canvas, since starting to paint?

I’m not afraid of anything except cockroaches and ocean waves cause I can’t swim. Still afraid of both. As far as painting is concerned, I used to be afraid to mess up. I am not anymore. Because, I can paint over anything. And I have the BESTEST teacher in the world who can turn anyone into an artist.

How have your art classes allowed you to relax and relieve stress?

YES, but mostly they make me happy. The art studio is one of my happy places.

How have your art classes changed your life, either in your art or your everyday life?

Yesssssssss art is a great gift. It’s nice to be inspired by someone’s photo, another artist or a teacher, and it's nice to be admired for something creative that you’ve done.

What advice would you tell a total beginner who feels afraid of taking an art class or they feel they "have no talent"?

Everyone has talent, you just can’t be afraid to express you ART and soul.

Last month we had a very exciting week as we welcomed children ages 4-11 to our Winter Art Camp! Children created beautiful mixed-media tropical parrots, and still life fruit bowls. Everyone had a great time and went home with multiple pieces of artwork to hang up at home. Our nurturing environment gave all of our students a safe environment to express themselves and create special friendships.
