Art and Creativity

March is Youth Art Month

Youth Art Month encourages and supports quality school art programs, throughout the United States. Visual art experiences give students an opportunity to problem solve, create, observe and communicate.

Art and creativity can build skills for success in life. By engaging in artistic activities, children develop confidence and they learn how to innovate. The arts encourage exploration and self-expression.

Creativity is not just for kids! Engaging in arts for older adults can alleviate loneliness and boredom. One feels more engaged and focused in the creative process. Studies have shown that art engagement can alleviate anxiety, depression, and stress.

At Whitepine Studios, we offer art opportunities for all ages and abilities. It is our mission to teach art fundamentals in a supportive and relaxed environment. Our painting pARTys provide a social outlet and an opportunity for folks who have never experienced the arts, to spend a couple of hours enjoying the creative process. Our Sound and Art events merge the health benefits of a beautiful sound bath with the meditative benefits of Art. While listening to the soothing, melodic tones of the singing bowls, our patrons are guided to paint a watercolor composition.

“I started painting as a hobby when I was little. I didn’t know I had any talent. I believe talent is just a pursued interest. Anybody can do what I do.” Bob Ross
