LEARN TO PAINT A BEAUTIFUL LANDSCAPE OIL PAINTING AT YOUR OWN PACE USING A LIMITED PALETTE
The beauty of this curriculum, which I developed from experience coping with my own mental health challenges is that it is designed specifically for people who need someone with soft skills to work with them, but from a creative level. Most people are aware of, and will agree that creative stimulation works wonders to help us relax and heal the mind. Creative activities is a great outlet to help us manage the stresses of daily living.
In addition, this oil painting course/lesson can be a one-time trial lesson (one 3-hour lesson), or an ongoing course (until completion of painting) where you’re helped to understand basic techniques used to create a beautiful, realistic painting style using this very forgiving medium. Most noteworthy, these lessons, provide positive affirmations, relaxation, and breathing exercises throughout the process to help students cope with the stresses of daily living, including mental health challenges.
Especially relevant, is the high degree of personal attention given to each student in this Step-by-step Absolute Easy Beginners Guided Oil Painting Lessons, which makes it perfect for the beginner or anyone who learns at a slower pace.
