Painting sessions with portrait artist Robbi Firestone are way more than canvas-deep. Her goal is “to inspire women to unleash their freedom through creativity” in her light filled, adobe studio with fascinating art and objects. Firestone leads the group in a meditation, then guides students through creating their own versions of one of the 40 paintings in her teaching repertoire. As they paint, she asks them to think beyond the studio–if they judge themselves harshly, she asks them why; if there’s something they fear-a color or a scribble-she encourages them to push beyond that fear. Painting, she says, helps people realize what needs to shift and teaches them to make that change–if only, at first, in the supportive environment Firestone creates.
