i'm teaching art classes...

i'm thrilled to have a new job teaching art classes!  i will be representing grumbacher and teaching beginners how to paint in acrylics. they will be 2 hour classes where we will finish a new painting in each class. i'll teach classes in landscapes, seascapes, florals, and still lifes at michaels in tualatin, oregon!  i haven't set up my class calendar yet, or even painted my first samples...but, i'm so excited to (hopefully) instill the passion of art...of painting...of creating in those that maybe had a fear of it or just hadn't taken the leap to try. 
it would be great to also get some people in that had painted years ago, but for whatever reason stopped...just to get jump-started again...or maybe just hadn't ever tried acrylics.
and to be representing grumbacher...such a respected institution in art supplies is such a thrill.  and to have my classes at michaels...one of my favorite places for arts and craft supplies...how fun is that?
i'm also going to be doing at least one demo each month in the store where people can sign up for classes, find out more info, and watch me create!
i'll keep you updated on my calendar and pictures of the paintings we paint.  i'm really looking forward to it!
