Confessions of an Amateur Painter

I am definitely not a painter. My idea of painting something somewhat similar to the desired image is using a beginner’s paint-by-number kit. However, during a team-building activity, our department decided to paint our own masterpiece—freehand. Great. Surprisingly, after this activity, I was quite pleased with the result. Why? Our artist instructor was sensitive to the less artistic in the group and gave us step-by-step instructions. Whew! Today my artwork is on display at home—and I now share it with the world. Yay.

What are some Connections2Excellence? We may think we are not creative or artistic enough to produce something we could treasure or even display. Sometimes a master teacher comes along and gives us a little help. The result can be surprising.

Our Connections Challenge: Plan a date with some friends, and give something artsy a try—maybe painting. You could find a new passion and enjoy something new. Have fun—enjoy!
