We are a membership community for Budding Artists
young, and wise.
Dedicated to facilitating you and your families
We focus on Process, not Product, and Practice not Perfect!
It can be pretty frustrating to be in a class where everyone is doing great work but you. Just know, that great work has to start somewhere. At Paint is Thicker Than Water we provide a positive, mindful beginning. In a judgment-free zone. To expand your Artistic ability in small group settings.
We use an array of teaching frameworks derived from Harvard’s Project Zero, to make learning fun, diverse, and meaningful!
These frameworks are equity driven and do an excellent job tapping into the benefits of art. Here’s what else art has in store for you.
Art increases your creative thinking, problem-solving skills and opens you or your child’s mind for innovation, and improves critical thinking.
Art changes your mood and reduces stress. It is the perfect karma for all those bad days and long commutes.
Art boosts confidence, self-esteem and provides that amazing feeling of accomplishment that we all long for.
Art stimulates connections in the brain, halting some of those senior moments.
Art prepares youth for school and life. According to Americas for the Arts.“A student that is involved in the arts is 4 times more likely to be recognized for academic achievement, and students with an education rich in the arts have historically earned higher grade point averages and scored higher on the SAT than students without arts education. The more years of art students take, the higher their SAT scores on average.”
We have three learning pathways to sink your brushes into. At your own pace.
Our learning Labs are where you’ll build your foundation in the Arts. We focus on building up your skills, techniques, and delivering the nitty gritty on materials and methods. It’s all the hairpulling stuff at a slow and steady pace in an open exploratory setting. You may walk away with a finished product over time, but that is not our focus. This is the skills zone where we practice skills, not finished products.
This is the only gym where you leave your expectations at the door. This is your time to space out and forget about all the rules and just play with art. Let go of stress, over-thinking, and just paint what calls to you. Without judgment or the, it doesn’t look right police.
Arts Enrichment Classes
With a goal of creating meaningful projects and works of art and integrating the arts into learning. We’ll explore culture, art history, symbols, and current events, and really learn to think and act like an Artist within a fun group environment.
“Creativity Takes Courage.” – Henri Matisse
At the end of the day, Artists go to bed accomplished whether they know it or not, because even though the cat they spent hours on painting looks like a donkey, and even though they’re best friend refused to hang up their drawing in their house and even though they still can’t draw hands, faces, or ears right. Artists get up the next morning and start again.
Artist’s know that it always seems impossible until it’s done.Start creating an accomplished life for you and your family now.
I took up painting as a new hobby in 2015. Before too long I wanted to learn the basic techniques of drawing and I contacted Jennyann in order to progress my knowledge. My previous experience was, non-existent really, so we began with perspective. From there I moved forward to understanding form and use of different media to goals set with me each week. Her teaching style enabled me to apply the principles I was learning to my painting and I am thrilled with the results. Jennyann’s warm personality and clarity of teaching was the beginning of my journey.
