It’s time for River Art Gallery to introduce our new member Nikki Milley award-winning portrait artist, teacher, animal lover and mentor dedicated to making our world a little bit prettier!

Learn to Watercolor

Most of us understood the power of art instinctively as kids. If you’re like most people, you probably don’t express yourself with art as you did in your childhood. You may not think you’re good at creating art or think it’s not worth your time. Yet with all of life’s responsibilities in these somewhat uncertain times, we forget that we need and deserve downtime with a touch of self-care. Nikki Milley understands how the art of painting provides great stress relief, even for those who don’t consider themselves artistically inclined.

Creating art can take your mind off of whatever is stressing you. Imagine letting yourself relax for 30-60 minutes in a private painting session at home. You’ll learn about various color mixtures and how they go together, while discovering your creativity. It can help you tap into a state of flow. The 2016 Journal of the American Art Therapy Association found that just 45 minutes of creative activity can reduce your stress, regardless of artistic experience or talent.

Now you can work together with Nikki in a one-on-one painting class with her prepackaged Brush Babies painting kits. “A unique feature of my painting boxes is my video link. Each box comes with a step-by-step, how to paint your brush baby video of me painting the drawing.” In these days of social distancing, you and I can work together safely in the privacy of your own home. With Brush Babies, you have the additional benefit of rewinding the video to focus on Nikki’s guidance, as you become more familiar with each step. You can learn at your own pace and you’ll have a beautiful piece of art to show for it. Plus, you can paint your Brush Babies again and again. Taking some time out once in a while to paint can prove to be very rewarding in the long run.

It’s Simple and Easy. You don’t have to be a professional artist to be creative! Everybody can paint and I’m here to help you every step of the way all from the comfort of your home.
