I have some exciting news – I’m going to be teaching painting on canvas classes at Claytopia in Erie, PA!
Shortly after I moved here, I met Gretchen from Claytopia. She invited me to teach painting on canvas classes there. I did a practice class last Friday, and it went really great!
The classes will be standalone (not in a series) and each class will focus on painting a particular painting step-by-step.
For the practice class, I did a painting of owls on a branch.
Here I am showing how to paint the branch in a wavy line.
And here, I am describing how to paint the shapes of the owls (my special trick!).
Here are the students hard at work painting their backgrounds :)
My Aunt Stacy and my cousin Jake came too!
Here I am with all the students holding their paintings!
I think they all turned out great, and they were each very different and unique!
My next steps will be planning out the painting classes – I have a lot of ideas! Pajama night, girls night, boys night (dragon painting?), and storytime + painting with kids. After I plan the classes I want to teach, they want a month to advertise it before I actually hold the class. The first class I do will probably be the same as the practice class though, since it is something I’m already familiar with. I will post updates as more stuff happens with this!
