Meet the mother daughter team of Valerie Hansen and Addie Mumm who drove here this morning from Detrich, ID for their first Joy of Painting class. Valerie had done some oil painting years ago but this was her first experience using the wet on wet technique. Addie had not painted with oil at all. I selected a painting for us that had not been taught in class for some time.
Restricting classes to no more that two allows me additional time to give more individual instruction than a student would get in group sessions. And, while it does not produce much revenue, I really prefer teaching this way.
Below are pictures showing some of the steps we took to complete their work of art. I can tell you for certain that when the contact paper stencil came off, both ladies had large smiles. They did very well for their first class.
