“There is no art which has not had its beginnings in things full of errors. Nothing is at the same time both new and perfect."
~ Cicero, Roman Stateman
Many people who dearly want to be artists put off making art until they have "more time," or get stuck on one work of art trying to "perfect it." But each work of art doesn't have to be a masterpiece. Cultivate the courage and curiosity to take the plunge and make mistakes. Make something "bad"! Have more than one work going at a time. Only when we are open to doing this, can we discover the expansive universe of our own artistic landscape.

Announcing: Virtual Art Lessons and Creativity Mentoring

If you are interested in advancing your classical realism drawing/painting skills this summer, or you need guidance to kick start your creativity, contact Living Creatively with Denise Laurin for Zoom sessions.

How will Living Creatively with Denise Laurin help me to get to the next level?

Every human being needs to create. With our busy technology-driven lives, we tend to postpone this natural inclination until we have “more time.”

At Living Creatively, we are dedicated to teaching classical realism techniques. Under the Learn to Draw and Learn to Paint tabs, you will find information on the academic-style drawing and painting instruction given privately and semi-privately for adults and children ages 12 and up. These sessions are individually tailored to the artistic aspirations and interests of each student.

Creativity Mentoring is an excellent way to kick start your creativity either in supportive individual sessions or as part of the Creativity Circle.
Currently, all sessions are held via Zoom.

By subscribing to the Living Creatively Now newsletter, you will receive monthly inspiration on a variety of art-related topics and strategies for daily creativity. Click on the Contact button to subscribe.


Art Presentations outlines the professional presentations on art, art history, and art-making demos that we can provide for your organization or gathering. Available on Zoom.
