The beginning watercolor lessons in "You Can Do It! ART" DVD series are demonstrated simply
and in a relaxed manner, taking into account physical limitations a painter may have.
The lessons teach watercolor painting techniques that are easily learned and bring forth colorful,
delightful paintings, building confidence and satisfying feelings of accomplishment.
Emphasis is on personal expression and individual creativity, not following directions to
complete a specific scene or format.
The painter uses the techniques to freely paint whatever colors, brush strokes, textures, and effects
are desired. Truly an individual creation that flows out of the inner person, not dictated by anyone
else! This is what art is all about, and how it contributes to a sense of personal satisfaction and
Painting can sometimes release and express what words cannot. It allows expression of
emotions, experiences, and sensations on a level that often cannot be verbalized. Victims of trauma
or persons with physical, mental, or emotional struggles often find relief and joy through their artistic
expressions in colors, textures, and shapes.
It is a stress-reliever, providing a quiet time of focusing on the amazing changes of color and form
on the watercolor paper.
It is reported that during and even after the painting experience, physical and emotional
pain is reduced, sometimes going almost unnoticed.
Creating the painting is an experience in itself. But also, when the painting is completed, it becomes
an avenue of self-discovery and truly a conversation piece for relating to others.
|The kit includes all materials needed. DVDs do all the teaching for you, from showing
residents how to take care of the brushes and clean out the paint box, and
demonstrating each watercolor technique from start to finish, with encouragement and
coaching an integral part of the teaching.
For persons who may have difficulty holding a brush handle, there are
cushioned sleeves available to slip over the brush handles. Just request this
special item when you order the kit. They will be included free of charge.
