Paint and Blush

In 2015, the Under 35 CREW DC Committee is focused on young professionals taking more risks and get outside their comfort zone. For our first event we encouraged participants to stretch their creative skills and try something new. At Merlot’s Masterpiece we created our own art piece and discussed how taking chances can very rewarding. In the beginning, we all had preconceived notions of how we wanted our artwork to look. We compared and contrasted our skills with each other. But as we began to discuss how fear and risk holds us back, we slowly focused on the fun and excitement of creating something new. Participants shared examples of risks they took in their professional and personal lives and how those chances provided them invaluable insight. By the end of the night, each person completed an art piece that was as unique and different but more importantly, fearless.
