One of my favorite things about paint parties is that often, a person will leave feeling in some way good about themselves or about the art they have made.
It brings it all back to me- that one special thing about being alive is that we can create. Perhaps we don't always create well, but that is besides the point.
It is so easy to fall into patterns of living in a way where our internal world is forgotten. We post updates and pictures so that other's can bear witness to our (often edited) lives, and it is a great way to share and add to community.
But art, in any form, will always have the ability to bring us back to ourselves- to seeing and creating from within and not from an external vantage. Our interior world is such a sacred place, and it is so easily forgotten, it so easily goes un-honored.
Art holds the magic of the human heart, no matter how "good" or "bad" it might be.
