I am happy to say - she LOVED it! We all (my sister joined us, too) can't wait to do it again!
If you're unfamiliar with this - it is basically a painting class. Everyone paints the same painting but the teacher goes step by step with how to do it AND she is there to help and support you throughout.
Our teacher was great - Jackie Rock. When we take another class, I definitely want her to be our teacher! She is not only very talented, but also very supportive and helpful throughout the whole process.
You can also bring any food and drinks (even wine!) you might want. You do not need to bring any glasses, plates, etc. - they have it all there for you! Genius concept!!
I will reveal to you how the painting was done. (I'm not sure if that is cheating and revealing secrets but I thought you might be interested to see the progress!) The title of our painting was "Castillo de San Marco Love" - the Castillo de San Marco is the local fort in St. Augustine. If you've been to St. Augustine, you've seen the fort.
|Anxiously waiting to start!|
|My blank canvas!|
|Step 1 - YELLOW!|
|Step 2- orange & some shading|
|Step 3 - an orange/red mixture and more shading|
|Step 4 - night sky & some outlining|
|Step 5 - some palm trees, addition to the fort, windows, & more outlining|
|Step 6 - stars, the love birds, and initials|
|My masterpiece! ;) You can see in the back what it is "suppose" to look like.|
|All of our paintings!|
I absolutely love that we are all painting the same thing and all of our paintings are slightly different. It makes your painting truly special and unique.
Like I said - I cannot wait to go again!!
