Have I ever mentioned I teach art in my studio at home?
I love teaching art to small groups of adults in my own home because:
1. I don't have to go anywhere
2. We can change whatever we are doing at the drop of a hat because I do not have to cart art materials anywhere
3. Adults are lovely to teach and they want to learn - and I get paid for it
4. My students can choose what they learn
During the pandemic I had to stop teaching at home; although I moved the sessions online it was never the same as my students did not all have the same materials, colours and makes of watercolour paint etc. We struggled on for a year before finally stopping.
I have 2 new groups now and I am really enjoying the teaching again. So far this term we have experimented with paint, made a landscape painting and both groups are now tackling portraits - one of the most difficult subjects to teach in art. But they are all doing brilliantly and I am really looking forward to the rest of the term.
And if any of my students see this, a big thank you for all the hard work you put in and your enthusiasm.
