For artist Mary Guntzviller, creating art isn’t about being successful or perfect. It’s about being willing to let the process take you on a new, unexpected journey. And this is what it will be like should you join her at a class. She’ll be teaching watercolors on Wednesdays through February at Twisted Fish’s Cottage Gallery.
“Sometimes the result is successful, sometimes it’s not. It’s important to allow ourselves be less than perfect. That’s why I say, Bring Humor!”
Here, she shares some of her thoughts on teaching and what she enjoys about the creative process.
“I love to introduce students to the concept of practicing painting. Not painting because it’s going to be a masterpiece every time, but being willing to find out what you don’t know.”
The goals of my classes are to show students how to explore and learn while having fun. Touching the brush to the paper is an examination of one’s inner being.
Northern Michigan artist Mary Guntzviller will be teaching watercolor classes at Twisted Fish Gallery throughout February, where beginning and intermediate artists will have the chance to enjoy camaraderie, releasing their inner artist, and learning new skills.
