Pursuing Dreams....

Graffiti Glam Class at Swank
One of the most gratifying things about teaching someone else how to do something, is the look on their face when they really get it and the joy that you hear from them as they see their work come together in a cohesive piece of art.

The class I taught last Saturday at Swank was a BLAST! I really had a great time but more importantly, so did the students. I think that I am going to change it up a bit and and offer it as a longer version for the retreat I'm going to be teaching at in 2011. In the mean time, I may offer another mini version either later this summer or early fall.

We even went out on a field trip to do our 'graffiti art' in the streets!

I have to say, the students really picked up the techniques and applied their own twist on it to make some fantubulous work :))))

I'm loving the purple and green  and pink Lori picked out for her composition!

Nothing like getting our hands dirty and having fun with a multitude of supplies!

Our Mother daughter team worked well together. It was really wonderful to see how much they enjoyed each other's company and found this connection in art that allowed them to spend time together while pursuing activities to enrich both of their lives.

Lori said she never painted before ever--I'm so proud of her and what she accomplished for her first work of art!!  She should continue to 'STRIVE' and achieve whatever it is that she desires to do.  She can do it!

This is my piece that I worked on while teaching and demonstrating.  Dream.  What can I say. I'm living a dream that I've been wanting to pursue for so long. It's manifested itself in ways that aren't exactly the path I would have initially have chosen to take, but it was exactly the path I was supposed to take if that makes sense.


Thank you ladies for allowing me to instruct you in this artistic process. I learned a lot from YOU :)

Hope you all have had a creative week! Happy 4th of July!
