Many adults loved their art classes at school yet so many leave the brushes, paints, sculpting tools and craft items behind, never to pick them up again. Art, in any form – painting drawing, sculpting, pottery, photography – is fun and beneficial. It is also a hobby that is accessible to anyone because you don’t need talent – that’s just a bonus – and it's also inexpensive. You can get started with a pad of paper and a pack of watercolours or even crayons. And if you want to add some seriousness into the mix, there are plenty of art classes in Sunshine Coast. Here’s why you should consider taking an art class:
You challenge yourself on many levels when you learn something new. You can be a complete beginner learning the basics or more experienced and learn a new technique. Learning only gives you more strength.
You don’t need to have a special talent to be creative. The mere act of producing something is creativity. For many, "creative" is a welcome relief from the everyday – the doctor who finds relief in watercolours, the accountant who loves to work with oils, the builder who works delicately with pastels ...
Our day jobs don’t give us the chance to let free the intuitive function of our brain. An art class allows you to take a break from analytical thinking to delve into your intuition. Choosing which blues make up the sky in a landscape watercolour of the Sunshine Coast is very far removed to rows of debits and credits or some risk analysis.
See things differently
On a daily basis we don’t always have time to stop and think of various solutions. In the relaxed environment of an art class, on the other hand, there is plenty of opportunity to explore new ideas and try different solutions. This is a valuable take away that helps in general life.
Be part of a community
In an art class you’ll meet all sorts of new people from all walks of life. It’s the opportunity to enjoy companionship in a shared interest, make connections and new friends.
Thankfully, there are places in Australia that not only lets you buy art online, but can also help you unleash your creative self. Galleries like GoArty does just that, and more.
