courageous heARTS classes are back! We have Open Studio from 3:30-4:30 everyday and on Fridays it goes on until six. This is time where you can work with our art supplies to make a piece of artwork. Our guided sessions go from 4:30-6:00pm. Our Monday guided session is called Bead It, where you learn to make jewelry. On Tuesday we have Intuitive Painting and on Wednesdays we have Yoga. On Thursdays the class is called Finders Keepers, which is using your creativity to turn something old into something new. If you are looking for a creative outlet you can always come to courageous heARTS. It has a really welcoming and caring atmosphere that I feel not enough kids or teens get a chance to feel that way. We have some really great people who care about each other and you!
This past summer I took two classes at heARTS. One was Intuitive Painting, which is probably one of my favorite classes. At first it was hard to paint for an hour and a half but later I would work on one painting session after session. It made me feel better and allowed me to relieve the stress that I kept inside. It also changed my point of view on art a bit and about what art is. The other class I took was Dying to Weave. It was a fun class about weaving. Weaving is really fun to do! We learned a little bit of history about weaving. I love weaving and I still weave today, although now it is normally in my bedroom with random yarn.
Overall if you are looking for a place to have fun you should check out courageous heARTS. I wish I could spend more time at heARTS. You should also check it out if you are looking for friends or a place to hang out on cold snowy days. I think everyone should be a part of courageous heARTS. Just remember that everyone is an artist!
