I'm teaching my first art class in Seattle!

Hi All,

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.

Congratulations on your first class! That sounds like so much fun, especially going in with the gift certificate of course. Utrecht has some great pastels.

Your website looks great! Took me a moment to figure out I had to roll over the paintings, but that's an elegant way to focus attention on each one in turn while still giving a good idea of your range. Wilbur is adorable. Definitely post more of it!

Thank you both! This site has helped me learn so much, without you guys I wouldn't feel confident teaching this class!

Re: I'm teaching my first art class in Seattle!

Teaching can be a learning experience as well. This sounds exciting. I was asked to teach some classes but I'm still trying to figure things out myself. It sounds as tho you have a pretty good handle on things and a good place to start from. Congrats on the studio and web site.
