Set your artistic spirit free and explore color and movement creating your own abstract designs! This painting class will begin with brief relaxation meditation, seeking inspiration and visualization (along with some light upper body stretching to loosen you up!) You will then create small thumbnail sketches of your vision before committing. No former experience is required as your instructor, an expert in color mixing and blending will guide you. Each class will explore a different paint medium (watercolor, acrylic or oil stick.)
Painting in the Spirit is part of Vuka's 6-week summer class program.
Class will be held over the following 6 Wednesdays from 5:00pm - 6:30pm at Vuka.

Donna Lita, founder of EscapeArtists, has been creating since childhood. She studied privately in New York's Hudson Valley where she grew up. Her career began in New York as a graphic designer and led to marketing and advertising management in Florida after earning a BBA in Marketing at FAU. Her love of adventure and travel and her spirit of giving has draw her into some interesting and creative work - from painting massive banners and designing advertising balloons for World Renown Hot Air Balloonist, Chuck Rohr to traveling throughout the Caribbean with her former yacht management business, touching up boat transoms! While taking a break from the marketing & advertising world to raise two children she taught preschool, held art classes and camps for children and adult painting classes for over 10 years. As a designer with The Container Store she acquired studio design and home organization skills. More recently, she traveled with The Miracle Foundation to a children's home in India to co-art direct the painting of murals with her daughter. She has volunteered her creative talents for Scare For a Cure's interactive haunt and is active with Austin's Art From the Street's. Donna Lita has recently founded EscapeArtists a comprehensive resource for creative people seeking adventure and inspiration via travel, meditation, prayer, creative volunteering, and home studio design!
