Banana Splits: The Class





My last art class of the summer!  This group of banana split girls were sooo sweet to work with.
This is the first time I've offered classes and I had such a good time.  I think I enjoyed even more than the kids!  I am planning on offering a couple of classes this fall and at least one holiday themed class before Christmas.  

Thank you so much to all of you who took a class, expressed interest and support, and suggested ideas.  It means the world to me that I am able to do what I love.  I can't wait to see what happens next!

Louis Vuitton: The Class

I LOVED teaching a teen class!  This was my first time painting with kids over the age of 10 and it was so much fun!  The girls all were very talented, patient, and just had such sweet personalities!

You can see how cute their bags turned out.  We did all the backgrounds first and then added all of the details on top.  The little Louis Vuitton logos on the bag were definitely the hardest part!

I know their artwork turned out adorable, but look how cut these girls are, too!  I love their style...the buns, scarves, skinny jeans, and monogrammed tees.  These girls have got it going on!  Let me just tell you, they were every bit as sweet and polite and they are cute.

I am already planning a new teen class.  Stay tuned!

Cinderella's Castle: The Class

The before...

The during...

The after...

I had five little beauties spend Saturday afternoon with me painting castles.  The girls were all so patient and such hard workers!  I am so impressed with their talent!  I had planned a few more banners in the front and fireworks in the sky, but we just ran out of time.  This was an amazing group of girls.  I hope to work with them again soon!

You Can Paint!

Anyone can paint!  I hear "I can't paint" all of the time.  Yes, you can!  You may not think you're able to paint, but many of you haven't tried.  It does take patience and practice, but it can be done.  Even if it doesn't turn out the way you had it pictured, you will be so proud of yourself for the effort.

Right now I am only offering classes to children.  I've have adults express interest.  If I have enough, I will be more than happy to offer classes.  Please let me know if you are wanting to give it a try!

You may surprise yourself!
