Even if someone with Parkinson’s Disease has not picked up a paintbrush since grade school, art can help improve physical, psychological, and social functioning. We provide personalized instruction based on your skill level and creative goals. We will explore color theory and paint mixing and techniques that allow you to complete a painting in a few sessions. Students with little no prior drawing or painting experience are welcome. Famous artists with Parkinson’s include Salvador Dali, Pablo Picasso, and Claude Monet. We think our students’ work is pretty awesome, too! We also think the community support sets this class above any art lesson. Would you like to paint as a family? Best friends forever are welcome to join as well!
All materials are high quality and will be supplied by the artist/teacher.
