I'm Here to …Get Out Of My Head

One of the lead-off activities in a Reckless Painting class is to ask a few anonymous questions of participants. As the title prompt of "I'm here to ..." suggests, it is worth getting an idea of why each participant has signed up.

In a recent session, a few people gave a similar response of “getting out of my head“. (... a good start)

We can ‘get out of our head’ when we are faced with the unexpected. And comfortable enough to not worry about getting it right. (What ever getting it right means …within the context of reckless painting.)

We can ‘get out of our head’ when;

  • we use only white paint for the first hour or so

  • when we paint on the table

  • when we scrub-clean some new 'canvases' on the table to continue painting…

  • on someone else’s area of the table

Actually, there are many ways to ‘get out of our head’ in a painting class.

It seems that the first step is to get out of our home and allocate a few hours to an art, music, writing, drama, improv class or workshop.

It’s great to witness art, but don’t forget to participate.
