I'm Barbara Henderson, the mosaic artist and instructor behind Henderson Arts, and I'm thrilled to invite you on a joyful journey of artistic exploration.
Join Me: Let's Unleash Your Creativity
When I was in school, if you couldn't draw realistically, you weren't considered a "good artist". As a result, I spent far too much of my life saying things like "I'm not very creative" or "I'm not artistic". It took me a while to say it, but I finally will - I'm a mosaic artist. And in the funny way that life has of being circular, my favorite thing to do now is have students insist they aren't creative - and then to draw that creativity out of them and feed their confidence to just try things. I mean - it's just broken glass and glue, y'all!!
Are you ready to embark on a mosaic adventure with me? No prior experience is necessary—all you need is an open mind and a willingness to explore. Or heck, show up scared and inhibited - just SHOW UP! Whether we meet at a local business, a parks district property, or in the comfort of your own home, I'll provide guidance and a contagious enthusiasm that will ignite your creative spirit.
In future blog posts, I'll share tips, tricks, and stories from my mosaic adventures, providing inspiration and encouragement for your own creative endeavors. Together, we'll explore new techniques, discover tools and materials, and dig deeper into the infinite possibilities of the world of mosaic art.
