The Art Of Class…

My friend, and well known musician-songwriter, Cori Brewster recently asked me what I would tell people who wanted to start art later in life. She was scheduled to present a workshop to Seniors in Calgary and thought I had probably addressed this with some of my students over my 25 years of teaching.

I thought for a while of all the cliches..” You’re only as old as you think”, ” Age is only a number”, or “time passes anyway”. But, what I know, and said to her was this…”Tell them, seriously, your ¬†brushes don’t know how old you are!” So, if you have always wanted to paint…..pick up that brush and let it think you are 18, or 46, or whatever you want….
