Watercolour art/therapy class with Terry Angelos - Tanya Jacobs Photography

Motherhood is all consuming. Throw in a business, marriage, life and you’re one hot sleep deprived mess needing a little escape.

That escape came last week in the form of a Facebook post by Terry Angelos; there were just a few spaces left in her Art/Therapy class.
With a clear schedule, I jumped straight in and booked at 11.30pm that same night.
And I’m so glad I did.

I arrived at Anthology, in the Windermere Centre, and found my way to the back of the eclectic store to a corner that has been created for this very purpose: to escape, learn, grow. 
What I signed up for was an art lesson in watercolour. What I got, was a morning spent with lovely women, a deeper admiration for watercolour, and the actual ability of being able to paint!

And champagne and strawberries. 🙂

When I signed up, I told Terry I was a complete novice, and had no idea how I was going to be able to paint with watercolour. My attempts in Art in high school were terrible embarrassing  creative, and I’m glad I found photography as my outlet.

But watercolour is different.

Even my blobs with a few key strokes taught by Terry looked beautiful.

I was in botanical heaven, creating stems of minimalistic flowers and leaves and getting lost in soft tones and repetitive brush strokes.
If you’re looking to do something creative, this is it!

Terry’s planning some fun art classes for 2017 and I’m definitely signing up again. You can follow her on Facebook here to keep up with what she’s up to.

“Abstract watercolours unwind me…just get lost in colour..shape and making repetitive marks…like art yoga!” – Terry Angelos.
