    5 Ways to Make the Most out of Art Class

    Art class can improve anyone’s life, from talented artists to the novice sketcher that doodles in their notebooks. However, when finally taking the leap and enrolling into one of the fun classes we have on offer at ArtPazionate there are a few ways to make the most out of art class. Here’s 5 quick and easy ways that will help you make the most out of your art class, subsequently ensuring you have the best possible experience.

    1. Come with An Open Mind

    Sometimes we are too focused on things we want to accomplish and doing things in a particular way. Art is all about going with the flow, trying new things and finding pleasure in the different. When you enter and participate an art class, come with an open mind. This will help ensure you aren’t putting too much pressure on yourself or taking yourself too seriously, subsequently allowing you to derive the most pleasure from the course.

    2. Don’t be Afraid of Messing up

    Art class is all about learning, there is no need to meet infractions with frustration or anger. Mistakes are all part of the learning process. Instead of fearing mistakes, you should lean into them. Mistakes can often lead to amazing discoveries (such as Penicillin), you may reveal a new shade of color you love or find a new style that suits you better.

    3. Come Prepared

    While most classes don’t require a lot of preparation, the best way to get the most out of the class is to do your homework. If your course requires quick prep before you arrive, take the 10 minutes out of your busy schedule to ensure it is done. This ensures you enjoy the course to the fullest and that you’re not stressed out during the class.

    4. Choose the Right Class

    To ensure you thoroughly enjoy the class you’re taking and make the most out of it, it’s essential that you choose a class that inspires you. This isn’t to be confused with a class that comes naturally to you. By all means pick something you’re not comfortable with or you’re known to have difficulty with. The only essential criteria is that you’ve picked something that doesn’t bore you. If you’re into water colour but have always been intimidated by it, sign up for a class. If you’re excellent at prints but have always been interested in oil paintings, give it a shot. If you’re interested in the art, it’s the right class for you.

    5. Be Easy on Yourself

    Be easy on yourself, don’t fret about how well others are doing or compare yourself to the other students. Everyone is on a different art journey, no one should feel pressured to excel. The goal of art is to nourish your life and cultivate your skills. It’s not a competitive sport and at ArtPazionate we live by this philosophy.

     Making the most out of art class can be done by following these 5 simple steps.  Sift through the courses we have to offer and follow these steps to ensure the most joyful experience possible.
