DIY Painted Gift Wrap

  • Roxanne says: "DIY Painted Gift Wrap by Courtney Cerruti is an fun and inspiring class that leaves you with a pile of colorful papers to use for wrapping gifts for any occasion. Courtney Cerruti teaches several quick and easy dry-brush techniques, from sophisticated crosshatch designs to loose geometric squiggles – no prior painting experience required. At the very end, Courtney shares unique ideas for mixing and matching papers to wrap any gift."

Color Meditation Daily Practice

  • Roxanne says: "Color Meditation Daily Practice by Lisa Solomon is great if you only have 5 minutes a day and you feel like you’re not really an artist because you can’t draw or paint. This class guides you through daily exercises that add a little bit of color and quiet time to your day.

    It's no problem if you don’t have the fancy watercolor sets that they show. I was able to do most of the exercises with a kids Crayola watercolor set, but if you don’t have that, I was even able to do most of it with ball-point pens in a few different colors! Don’t have watercolor paper? I tried it with both copy paper and magazine subscription cards. You could even use old envelopes or junk mail.

    This class isn’t about the end product, it’s about taking 5 minutes a day to distract your mind in a simple and colorful way."
