“I have not one artistic bone in me.” That is usually my stock answer when people say that I must have done so many art projects with my students. And anyone who has taught with me knows: I am not a fan of art projects in my classroom. Haha! Don’t get me wrong. If someone wants to come into my classroom and create an art project with my students, I would never say no. I would welcome it. However, having to deal with the craziness and mess that comes with just me after do art with my students sometimes messes with my senses. Call me mean. However, talk to any of my students. They loved my class (at least I think they do 😉 ).
Anyway, I highly recommend attending a paint night with your friends, mom, sisters, etc. My sister gave my mom and I tickets to a paint night and we went yesterday (my sister was there as well). It was so much fun! The teacher literally talks you through step by step. I mean, she tells you where to put each paint stroke. What do you think of my final product:
This is coming from someone with no artistic ability at all. It was great seeing other people’s paintings as well. There were about 50 people in the room and everyone had a different interpretation. This is definitely a must for everyone!
