About this event

Masks Required.


Artist and founder of The Painting School Sara Woster invites readers into the vibrant world of painting as a creative practice powerful enough to transform our lives.

Sara Woster is a painter, teacher, and art evangelist. She believes in art as a form of mindfulness, a ritual for healing, and an outlet for self-expression. In Painting Can Save Your Life, Woster welcomes readers into this transformative art form, inviting them to pick up a brush and discover how painting can help you see the world in a whole new way.

Weaving soup-to-nuts instruction on how to paint--from choosing the right materials to painting the human body--with her own story of discovering a passion for painting, this book includes:

  • simple and easy techniques for painters of all skill levels
  • playful and challenging painting exercises
  • tips on how to build a creative community using art
  • insights on how to use painting to cultivate a sense of calm in a stressful world

Part how-to-paint, part sheer inspiration, Painting Can Save Your Life is a wise and inspiring guide to the power of painting.


Painter and art teacher Sara Woster founded The Painting School in Brooklyn, NY in an effort to share her passion for painting with her community. Woster shows her work internationally and has illustrated several children’s books. Painting Can Save Your Life from Penguin Random House / TarcherPerigee is Woster's debut book. She lives with her family in Brooklyn, the Catskills and Northern Minnesota.
