After my painting course at the Charming Colours Art School – a Creative Kids Provider NSW, a lot of people asked me what I had learnt and so I thought I’d take this public platform to be vocal about it.
The trial art classes in Sydney taught me a lot. Here is a look at the lessons.
I learned to adjust to having others around me at the kids art classes in Sydney
I never really liked the whole bonding with others, and as a teenager, these things become even tougher. So when I learnt that there would be other kids at the trial art classes in Sydney, I was a little apprehensive.
But to be honest, it was a great experience. I was exposed to so many people who had different talents and were skilled in many things. I learnt a lot from them and I am still in touch with them.
I learnt a lot about art and paints
Shopping for art material online was fun. Did you know there are like a hundred types of brushes?
Paints have a code to differentiate between the many blues and pinks and yellows. It was fascinating to get to know all of this and more!
I studied the different tools used in painting
I was interested in how painters and artists use different tools to make their masterpieces. And so while I was shopping for art material online, I studied about this equipment and it was so interesting.
I expanded my expertise
On weekends when I didn’t have to attend the kids art school in Sydney, I spent my time thinking up new DIY ideas for decorating my room at home. In fact, I think it would be nice to mention that now I have a small venture of my own to sell these DIY items.
I love spending my time productively.
The trial art classes in Sydney taught me its okay to make mistakes
While painting, it is normal to mess up. I mean no one is born a Leonardo da Vinci. But the important part is knowing how to improvise, and how to rectify the mistake.
That’s what I learnt. In the initial stages I would freak out thinking that I have ruined the painting but then I’d simply buy more painting materials and try making the best of what I had messed up!
Do you have plans for the vacations?
Well, try this out. Take a course at the kids art school in Sydney. Something that I forgot to mention is that these guys are an NSW Creative Kids Provider and this gives you a chance to redeem your Creative Kids Vouchers and get a great discount on your classes.
Anyway, these were my learnings from my painting course. I gotta go now as I have to make a masterpiece!
