After School Art Class

Packed and loaded in the car




We did watercolor washes over wax paper writing--crayon resist--wet on wet and wet on dry. All went well--only about 12 students and my granddaughter helped me with everything--even helped me teach!--she stood right up with me and interrupted me left and right, but it was very cute--She didn't want to do the lesson--so I had to keep her busy passing things out--turning on the music and such. A very pleasant afternoon!

Ha you would have never let me get away with that with all the years i was your helper. But truthfully i would have been to shy to stand up infront of everyone. I didn't feel comfortable doing that until later around the time i subed for your art classes when you couldn't make it for some reason because there was such a big age difference--no longer was i helping in art classes with my peers. So good for patience --she's got more balls then i did at that age.

Hi Sheila, Nope--it was very smooth sailing!

Hi Martha, Yup--but I'm glad to be home to paint today!

Hi Michaela, I didn't let her get away with it either--she had to sit off to the side and pretend that I was the teacher, so that she would listen---then, I put her to work! She loved it though--so I haven't changed that much! It was funny too, because there were some older kids that were sort of smirking at P trying to teach right along with me, but P didn't even notice and she would strut from table to table announcing loudly the next step or that she was changing their water!

Hi Dean, It was pretty fun, although I didn't like the quality of watercolors--I was wishing they had Prang watercolors!
