View Full Version : New Age Group for my Class

03-18-2004, 05:21 PM
I'll be teaching an over 60 age group of adults, watercolor, beginning in April! at a local senior center. This will be an entirely new venture for me as far as an age group. Any tips would be appreciated!! I know the previous instructor did a 'follow the demo' approach to teaching which they like, but I also want to teach the 'why' of the painting so that they can use their own creativity in their work.

Any ideas?

Sounds like you will have your hands full. I would think that you could teach this group pretty easily. They will pay attention better than 6 year olds at least. They are there because they want to be there too. But I can imagine that some will think they already know it all. hehe

I don't know what else to tell you! I hope others will help too!
