Spring Class Graduating Students
This spring, I had the pleasure of leading a total of 20 students on a painting journey, in my newly-renovated watercolour studio/gallery in Lindsay. We all worked hard and made some great art.
Shown below are the ladies of my three-day Autumn Bay class, starting to work on their paintings.
The next photo is their graduation, with my demonstration painting shown at the bottom. Several of the students opted to paint larger formats and finish them after class.
One of the Autumn Bay students sent me this comment after class:
"Thank you so much for a great painting session and the photos. I am grateful that you included the steps of building up your painting as well. It will be a great reference as I continue my homework. I really enjoyed the graduation photo. It is good to look at everyone’s work objectively when we have had some time to distance ourselves. Everyone did a fabulous job because of your excellent guidance. Thank you once again." ~Wendy M.
This photo below is from my two-day Canadian Road Trip class.
You can see my demonstration painting in the bottom of this photo of the graduating students.
And here are some photos from my Pebbles 1-2-3 one-day classes.
Although my Pebbles classes are usually for absolute beginners, I did teach one group at the advanced level. They started larger compositions in class so they could work on them at home. Here is how far they got in the one day class.
One student sent me this comment after class:
"Thank you Karen. I thoroughly enjoyed my day and really like PEBBLES!! Yeah! The way you explained colour mixing made so much more sense than the other classes I have taken. Thank you so much for our class yesterday." ~Maggie H.
Another student sent this message:
"I want to thank you so much for welcoming us into your home, and for such an informative class. You are very special because you make everyone feel comfortable, no matter their skill level. I look forward to taking another class." ~Marjorie B.
Two of the students who did additional work on their paintings at home after class sent these photos of their lovely work.
Thank you to all my students, who made a watercolour journey with me this spring. Together, we learned a lot!
