Young adults today face a number of challenges. They struggle to balance their busy schedules, studies, juggle multiple jobs and deal with financial issues. In addition, they often lack confidence and self-esteem.
Painting has long been considered a therapeutic art form. The practice helps young adults develop skills such as creativity, problem solving, communication, and critical thinking. If you want to improve your life as a young adult then it is time to consider painting.
Take a look at the benefits that you can enjoy from your art journey:
Do you enjoy a good art book during your downtime from painting? That is probably a big YES! Artists love to read about other artists, get inspiration or learn about new techniques. Maybe it has something to do with the individualistic nature of painting. We love to have private time to reflect and think about creativity. With that in mind and the coming holiday season, I compiled a list of books from my library. See if you want to add any of these titles to your library.

What can we learn from great leaders of the past? In these cynical times we can be forgiven for looking at all leaders with suspicion. But there is the common thread of humanity that binds us.

In this episode of Loosen Up Your Painting Podcast we take a look into Churchill's painting philosophy in his book Painting as a Pastime. Find out more about Winston Churchill's painting tips, experiences with French Impressionism and his views on oil paints versus watercolors.
