My intention of blogging regularly hasn’t really worked so well, so it’s irregular and random – which suits me perfectly!
If you haven’t been here before, welcome to Delicious Art. Delicious Art began as a small group of friends who were happy to sign up with me for a few weeks and try pastels – so I could see if I was any good at teaching, and they could see if they were any good at art. I am forever grateful they did. Thank you!
We’ve now arrived the end of another wonderful year of art classes and today I am inspired to write a few words for whoever cares to read them.
Since I started teaching art classes sometime in 2016, or was it 2015? I can’t recall, I have met so many amazing people. It’s not easy to muster the courage to learn something new, to be vulnerable and have a go in a group of people you’ve never met, and it’s been such a delight to watch my students grow, develop their art, fall in love with pastels and come into my home every week for a few hours to keep learning and trying. T see photos of student art head over to the photos page on my website.
Have you seen the movie ‘The Bucket List’? It’s an all-time favourite of mine and there’s a line in that movie that asks “Have you found joy in your life? Has your life brought joy to others?” I can joyfully, hand on heart, answer yes to both. It really is a great honour to help fellow humans find joy.
So to my students who have trusted me on their art journey, whether it was for one day or many, I want to say thank you. Thank you for helping me create our little community, thank you for showing up and being vulnerable, for practising and finding your inner artist. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year, I am so excited to see what we can create in 2019!
