Painting with Rita – the paint and sip event business that did acrylic painting parties at restaurants around the Sacramento area, as well as private events, is now CLOSED.  However, for those interested in taking their painting to the next level, as a Certified Bob Ross® Floral Instructor, Rita will continue to offer semi-private (no more than 4 students at a time) Bob Ross® style wet-on-wet technique® oil painting floral classes, as well as classes in other painting techniques, as we move forward.  These classes are for serious students only, and will last 4-5 hours at a time.


Many people have never had the opportunity to activate that creative self.  For others, it’s been a very long time since they’ve been in touch with their inner artists.  Perhaps a sibling, or classmate, or maybe even a teacher or parent, gave you negative feedback on something you’d drawn, or colored, or painted when you were very young.  And suddenly you decided to shut down an entire side of your being.  You may have said – perhaps subconsciously – I’m never going to paint, or draw, or color again.  And so you closed off a very important part of yourself.

Some others may have been very artistic and creative when you were younger – but then you “found out” that you couldn’t make a living at it, and you stopped creating.  You let life, and work, and concerns get in your way.  You stopped finding time for something that gave you so much joy.

YOUR ARTISTIC/CREATIVE SELF NEEDS TO BE BOTH NURTURED AND SET FREE.  WHEN YOU ACCESS YOUR INNER ARTIST, IT PROVIDES YOU WITH THE OPPORTUNITY TO CREATE AND DISCOVER SOMETHING NEW.  IT CAN BE VERY THERAPEUTIC, RELIEVING STRESS IN YOUR DAY-TO-DAY LIFE, RELEASING OLD TRAUMAS AND BAGGAGE THAT YOU DIDN’T EVEN KNOW YOU WERE STILL CARRYING AROUND – OR THAT YOU DIDN’T EVEN KNOW WERE STILL AFFECTING YOUR EVERYDAY LIFE AND DECISION-MAKING.

And it’s okay if your paintings aren’t museum-ready right out of the gate.  The point is to find something you’d like to paint, and paint it.  Your artistic muscles might be a little bit weak at first – but just like any other muscles – they’ll get stronger with use and training!
