Let's Paint

 
A few days before Christmas, I taught a painting party for one special ladies birthday.
 
Tori turned eleven years old.
 
 
 
(me and mom/host Nadia)
 
She had invited ten friends to her party. Our evening was filled with laughs, giggles and lots of girl talk and more giggles.
 
 
 
 
 
I led the girls step by step from drawing a flower to mixing the paint, to completing their finished work of art.



 
 
 As I showed them how to start their paintings. I went around the table to give them suggestions and encouragement.




 
 
The younger girls tried to follow me step by step, while some of the older girls added their own unique style to the painting.
 
 
 
 
Some of the girls were so serious while others just enjoyed the fun of the activity. I had to reassure some that we are here to have a good time and enjoy painting their little masterpiece.
 
 
 
 
It was great to see all the differences of each artist.
 
 
 


I can't tell you how much fun I had instructing and listening to these young ladies.
 
I look forward to teaching more painting parties this year! Happy New Year!!

What a fun birthday party! The girls all did a super job on their paintings -- nice to go home with something they created instead of just a goodie bag of candy!
Thanks for stopping by my blog today and leaving a comment!

That paint party looks awesome! I like how you have all those table easels. I teach painting classes but the students just lay their canvas on the table (covered with a tablecloth of course). The easels look so much nicer! I may have to upgrade to that at some point :)
