I joined this program so that I could freely pursue my love of painting. My experience included changing my attitude about doing art and both taking and making time for myself. I got to try new tools, mediums and define my style. I got meet new people in a small group environment supported by kellie and new friends with similar interests. It was not overwhelming but truly transforming. My life has shifted to a “yes I can” attitude. I have more confidence and less fear. The shift is that it’s ok to care for me. I am most proud of myself for having the courage to change the things I can, and live my life the way I dreamed.
