TOOK A PROMO CLASS FOR THE EVENT
Here’s a pic of a great young family from USA, they asked if their little girl could do a painting, she’s only young but wanted to paint. So the whole family decided that they would help her. I think they achieved what they wanted to do on their holiday and that was do things together as a family. With busy lives, holidays with your young children mean so much and that’s what holiday memories are all about, not just being able to fly Black Hawk’s but that helps to. Here’s some pics of NEMO!
HAD A WONDERFUL GROUP OF YOUNG ARTISTS OVER THE PAST FEW DAYS JOIN ME AT CANAL VILLAGE FOR 2 HOURS OF ART AND LOTS OF FUN.
THE YOUNG GUESTS ARE PRODUCING SOME INTERESTING WORK AND I AM PROUD OF DISPLAY IT ON MY BLOG.
GREAT WHEN YOU THINK THAT THESE YOUNG KIDS PRODUCE THIS STANDARD OF ART FROM A SINGLE 2 HOUR LESSON.
I WAS ASKED TODAY BY ONE OF MY YOUNG STUDENTS HOW SHE WOULD DECIDE WHAT TO PAINT?
I EXPLAINED TO HER THAT SHE COULD USE HER ‘ARTIST LICENCE‘.
SHE SAID SHE DID NOT HAVE A LICENCE AND ASKED ME WHAT THAT WAS.
I EXPLAINED TO HER THAT IT WAS HER IMAGINATION AND THAT EVERYONE HAS ARTISTIC LICENCE THEY JUST HAVE TO KNOW HOW TO USE IT.
SHE QUICKLY GRASPED WHAT I WAS SAYING AND WENT ON TO DO AN GOOD LITTLE ART WORK.
WHEN HER MOTHER ASKED HER HOW SHE WENT AFTER THE CLASS, SHE SAID THAT IT HAD BEEN EASY BECAUSE SHE HAD FOUND HER ‘ARTIST LICENCE‘. HER MOTHER LOOKED BEMUSED AND ASKED HER WHAT THAT WAS AND SHE SAID ‘IT IS SOMETHING THAT I CARRY AROUND WITH ME IN MY HEAD’.
WE ALL ROARED WITH LAUGHTER BUT IN FACT SHE HAD GOT IT, SHE KNEW THE POINT OF THE EXERCISE.
It always promised to be a great event, Summer Festival at Laguna Phuket and yesterday was no exception, 9 budding young artists fronted up for an afternoon of painting their abstract art onto real artist’s canvases and made a great job of it too.
I taught a set of twins who, although young, worked diligently for the entire class.
As part of Laguna Phuket’s Summer Festival I have been taking morning art classes at the newly opened Outrigger Resort Laguna Phuket, had an amazing outdoor studio where inspiration to paint marine images was easy!
Back at Canal Village in the afternoon…and a family class…..wonderful!
Sunday was my day-off and I spent that touring around Phuket, stopped off at the Marina and was happy to stop and chat with a family that live in Phuket and had taken my class earlier in the week. Small world. Then off to Rawai Beach to enjoy the delights of Phuket’s Seafood Festival. Festival’s everywhere on this beautiful island.
Here are some pics from my classes and also a funny little roadside BBQ we saw on our way back to Laguna Phuket yesterday. Enjoy your day! I’m off to see the folks at Allamanda Laguna Phuket where I will be hold classes at 10am this morning.
Another wonderful sunny day on the beautiful island of Phuket. Mary & Daniel from the UK joined another art class, great to see them progressing, good work. My class wanted to see there photos up, so here they are. Enjoy!
It’s been another wonderful week of teaching some talented young and some not so young, budding artists. I have been asked by my students to display some of their work on my blog, so for the next few weeks I will be updating with new photos from my classes here at Laguna Phuket’s Summer Festival.
I hope that you enjoy seeing the work.
