Student testimonial from Isabelle

Student testimonial from Tabitha

“There is nothing more grounding for me than sitting outside and taking in the beauty of our natural environment. Thanks to Christine, I’ve realized how therapeutic creating nature sketches can be! Take your lunch break outside and give it a try! You’ll be amazed by how much more centered you’ll feel when you return to your work! There’s something so meditative about getting outdoors, observing nature and creating something beautiful. Everything else seems to melt away while your attention is focused on your subject and your drawing, and in the end, you really feel a sense of renewal. It’s such a great way to get your mind off of work for a few minutes, and can make all the difference in the remainder of your afternoon. “
