Anti-Racist Art Classes on Monday Mornings, this intimate art-therapy style group is open by request.
There are untold benefits to exercises your vision and creativity by learning to draw and making art a part of your life.
However, like anything worth doing, the process can bring up a lot of resistance.
The most common story is that we want to learn a quick trick or two and then have a "perfect" drawing to show off to friends. But like music and dancing, it's the DOING of it that's important, not rushing to get to the end. The process of curiosity, discovery, frustration, breakthrough, and triumph play on loop as we continue to improve and spiral our skillset upward.
Mastering this creative process will show up in other areas of your life as well. When we learn to innovate, work through resistance, and problem-solve in art, we get better at doing those things in other areas of our life as well.
Once you're in, Antonelli Art School is $39.99 a month, just under $10 bucks a week.
Ok, yes, the total value of the course library alone is over $400, and the value of the group to keep you accountable and inspired is priceless, but I want you to think of it this way:
You are promising to show up at least once a week to draw, and you've put down a $10 bet that you'll keep showing up for yourself and your creative practice. Even drawing just once a week with our live classes or course library consistently will set you on a course for mastery.
