Dinner with Klimt

I attended a painting class / dinner buffet last evening where after three hours some 20 students produced most of a completed piece inspired by 20th century artist Gustav Klimt. I always find such experiences a great use of time because they not only instill appreciation for the original artist but expand and enrich the skills and possibilities of each participant. The only thing that I find a bit confusing is why I am usually the only guy who attends theses kind of events. Van Gogh, Michelangelo, Monet, Pollack, Klimt, all dudes. Have men just become detached from self-expression in the 21st century, or are they too filled with false bravado to risk their precious macho image on canvas? Drop the swag guys and pick up a brush! Life is waiting.
