Painting classes can be a challenge because there are a variety of skill levels and comfort zones in the same room. The biggest hurdle is to help students move from a place of fear into a place of confidence and understand that painting is a skill and with a bit of patience and perseverance they can do this.
When I teach in Houston my 23 year old daughter Indigo often accompanies me, she has grown to really love this trip each year. She helps me schlep supplies to and from classes, (gets me an extra piece of luggage on the plane too), demos in the Mistyfuse booth and often paints in class while I’m teaching. The work she produces during class is a great example of what’s possible with practice painting with these inks.
For the grand finale, here’s Indigos video of that day from festival.
