We will vary our subject matter and styles from representational still lifes and landscape studies to more illustrative and whimsical drawings. Instructor will give demos at beginning of most classes and individual instruction throughout class. Drawing experience helpful but not required.

    Have you heard this statement? Now think about it…

    As we work longer and care for others, time for ourselves can be limited but that lack of social engagement does affect our brain health as well. Now you might ask how do I increase my interactions with others?

    Think of those things you would like to do. Make a written list.  Explore other ideas. A book club, a dance class, lunch out, a day trip, learning a new skill. Whatever it is, now look for those things on your list. Ahh, they have that very thing at your Senior Center, Parks and Rec, Adult Ed…

    Now to go for the first time. Just how scary is that. Yup, that’s why you haven’t gone in the past, isn’t it? You don’t know anyone who will go with you and you don’t want to go alone…

    Do you remember your first day of school? The first day of every new school you ever went to? The first day of every new job? The first day at a new church? The first time you went to a new doctor’s office?

    All of those were scary too! But you got very comfortable in a short period of time didn’t you? Most times it worked out really well by the end of the first week.

    Well do the same thing now. Pick that thing you have always wanted to do. Sign up. Then show up. There will be other people there for their first time as well. In a few visits you’ll be making new friends and perhaps finding folks you know from the past.

    But now you’ll be getting out, having some “me” time and experiencing new activities and making new friends. All very good things to be doing!

    Give it a try! “You’re not too old and it’s not too late” – Rainer Maria Rilke
