Gabrielle Sivitz has been teaching drawing and painting to adult students for over a decade, including classes and workshops at the Zootown Arts Community Center in Missoula, MT, the Art Museum of Eastern Idaho, in Idaho Falls, ID, and the Pocatello Art Center in Pocatello, ID. Gabrielle wants her students to enjoy art and embrace the learning process. To that end, her classes and workshops are geared toward having fun and accepting mistakes. “When we’re kids we just naturally draw and paint for fun and we don’t worry about if we’re any good at it, but as we get older we become much more critical of ourselves. We accept the myth that artists are born with some magical ability that we don’t have, and so we give up. In reality, it just takes practice. It’s all about training yourself to see like an artist, and having fun along the way.”
