3 Types of Social Art Events

Art need not be a solitary activity.

3 Types of Social Art Events
Denver Daily Deals

For someone like myself who enjoys painting and drawing but is preoccupied with my studies, it can be extremely cathartic to temporarily place myself in an artistic environment shared by others with similarly busy schedules and a love for art. I found that social art events are perfect for occasionally flexing my creative muscles without extreme commitment. Most social art organizations provide art sessions with necessary materials like paint and canvases and often have an instructor to oversee and provide help when needed. Here are some examples of social art events that are great for one-time creative sessions:

1. Pottery painting

Pottery painting events are great because you can bring home a customized mug, plate, or other ceramic tableware to use or gift to someone else. These events are great for a relaxing, creative session with your friends.

2. Social painting parties

Recently, the social painting phenomenon has been on the rise. If you search for "social painting events" online, you'll find a plethora of Groupons and deals for painting parties with various social painting companies. Basically what a social painting party is a "party" (often with drinks) in which an instructor teaches a group of adults how to paint an image. They're great events for socializing and drinking while making something aesthetically pleasing.

3. Figure drawing sessions

For the more experienced artist, open figure drawing sessions (often called "life drawing sessions") are a great way to wind down and draw while meeting other artists in your area. Figure drawing sessions are often open sessions with a nude model who poses at intervals, allowing attendees to draw the human body from varying angles. Figure drawing may be a little more difficult, but the experience is extremely rewarding.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
