On September 5, 2018, everything that the universe has been steering me towards, everything that I have been working towards, and everything that my friends, art patrons and business partners have been working towards was kicked off in the form of Painting With Sari at The Bar Shoppe & Lounge!
I would like to use this online soap box to send out a big, huge, gigantic
to all the wonderful class attendees! You guys did such a fantastic job with this painting and I am so proud of each of you for pushing through learning a new skill and stretching your creative muscles!
When I was a kid, I always wanted to be an art teacher! When I was in high school, I still wanted to be an art teacher! As an adult, I found an opportunity to become a painting instructor!
I didn't think that I could do it. I didn't think that I would be good at it. But I wanted to have a job that meant something to me, that let me share my passion for art with those around me! I was in a place of uncertainty, but, I gathered my courage, I bolstered my positive thoughts and I applied for the job.
In 2016 I began to teach painting to groups of up to 40 people. It was HARD.
If you think painting is hard, try painting while you are walking around the room, holding your canvas, and stuffing your insecurities down all while reaching inward for a fun and encouraging art teacher. I couldn't believe it! She was there.
If you are feeling snoopy, you can see my Paint Nite profile here! I taught 43 events with Paint Nite, I received 155 individual reviews and I received 4 out of 5 stars!
Pictured above, you can see that the Jackalope has hopped over to Crater Lake, Oregon in order to take a very important selfie to document his journey. I was able to document the elusive event on canvas before he disappeared.
