I'm pretty excited that I'm teaching my first art class at Utrecht's Art Supplies downtown Seattle on March 13th at 1pm, and I'm even getting PAID for it (OK, it's a $60 gift card but hey, that's $60 worth of pastels!!)
Here's the summary I gave the store manager:
Introduction to soft pastels: Learn about different types of pastels, papers and surfaces, fixatives, tools, different techniques of applying pastel to your surface, storage of your finished pastel paintings, and more!
It will be a one hour class. Wish me luck!
Also exciting news, I've finally gotten an art studio downtown Seattle so I can start participating in First Thursday Art Walks. Check out the website my wonderful husband put together for me for details! www.kimeshelman.com
PS The website has a LOT of work to be done - like getting decent photos of my work, and getting a lot more of it up there.
