In the past 2 years, watercolor has taken me on a new path to teaching. I've been giving classes at the Wantagh Public Library and will do so again this Fall. I had no idea how much I was going to enjoy it! The students have been amazing in their enthusiasm and hard work. In a class with between 8 and 15 students, I make time to share information and demonstrate to the group, but my favorite part is going around and working one-on-one with each of them. I try to make this happen at least 3 times with each student during the 3 hour class. It is so rewarding when you see the hidden talent that people have no idea they possess. I love when I stay after to help a student by demonstrating a technique that will take them further with their work, then I look up and realize that several other students stayed to watch and learn! Totally gratifying!!!
