Mornin' everyone! (or technically, afternoon...) so fun and exciting news! I mentioned it briefly on Facebook a little while ago, but I will be teaching a watercolor class this summer with Jeanne Oliver's Creatively Made Home Summer Series! I met Jeanne in 2012 at Alt and was immediately taken by how real she was. She just seemed content and happy with who she was, where she was, and what she had to offer the world- which was incredibly refreshing. As our friendship grew, I was able to learn more about her passions, her goals, met her awesome husband, and pretty much just discovered how amazing of a person she was. Fast forward to a few months ago when I checked my email and found one from her asking if I'd be up for teaching a class this summer. Of course, you already know I said yes (hence this whole post. Wouldn't that be anticlimactic if I was just like "and I passed. the end. Happy Tuesday.") and I am so so so excited to do this. I absolutely love teaching people how to paint (I mean come on, I get to combine what I love doing most with talking. And by now you should all know how much I love to talk) so I'm really looking forward to this opportunity.
So, if you've always wanted to learn watercolors but never had the time, or the money, or you were embarrassed about your skill level (which is ridiculous. You rock) or whatever else, now is your chance to learn! The class is only $10ish dollars (I say "ish" because it maybe like $11) which is an absolute steal, it's an online video class that is pre-recorded so you can start and stop at your leisure, and dudes, you get to paint for fun. That alone should make you run to sign up. So don't stress about your skill level- I'm starting at the very very beginning- and will walk you all the way through to a finished painting. I'll even make up a hashtag so you can take awesome photos of it and share it on facebook and instagram so I can see your pretty pieces and tell you just how awesome you are at watercolors.
So here's the deal-
1. Go to http://jeanneoliver.ning.com and sign up for the network (this part is completely free!)
2. Browse the courses (you may have to click view all) and pick Watercolors and Flowers
3. Do a happy dance to show how excited you are. Post about it. Tell all your friends how much fun this will be. Hey maybe get them to join and y'all can take it together and have a big ol' party! Like one of those drinking and painting classes except you'll all have different unique paintings :) The possibilities are endless, people!
4. Check back often for sneak peeks, giveaways, etc. (You can also "like" my facebook page and get updates that way if you prefer.)
