My First Portrait Class!

I am teaching two portrait classes this month called "Whimsical Portraits" and the first one was this past Saturday! I wanted the class to be super small so I could work out the kinks (If any). The class was supposed to be 5 hours, but we ended up staying for about 6 1/2 and still really didn't finish. So, I am going to have change a few things for the next one coming up on June 28. That class is going to have 7 students. I really enjoy teaching how I draw and paint portraits!! These students amazed me. None of them have ever drawn any kind of face before and their end product was so impressive to me. They had so much fun and couldn't believe they were actually drawing something that they liked. I knew they could do it!!

People seem to think that you have to be naturally talented to be able to draw and paint, but I don't feel that way. Just like Math, or anything else, I believe drawing and painting can be taught!! My students proved that!!
