Six months ago I knew very little about social media. I know I have a long way to go but I have enjoyed the challenge of engaging an online audience. The whole experience has awakened the teacher in me as is showing through in the analyses of children’s paintings. I will continue to do this and please feel free to send me your child’s work for comment on my Blog. I will continue to give ideas about developing #creativity in #children which we can all embrace. It’s never too late to learn.
When my webarchitect #MattCameron suggested a daily Blog I was horrified. What could I possibly find to talk about each day? But it’s a challenge I am enjoying and it’s doing my brain the world of good. You have all been very patient with my stumbles and Matt has gently directed me in the genre.
I’m about to “dive off the board” into making videos to pass on some painting ideas. I’m sure my videos will go viral as comedy or horror movies! But I really would like to to show how I do it. I’m making the videos myself so it’s even more fun. Thank you, but I don’t want comments! I’m going to have some practice runs and then plan to show how to paint a picture from start to end. If you are still being asked what you want for Christmas (how can they leave it so late?!) - you want a box canvas, a pencil, a ruler, some brushes (a mixture of flats and rounds) and small tubes of Acrylic paints (white, cobalt blue, Payne’s grey, cadmium red, raw Umber, cadmium yellow.)
Paint along with me. Send me your questions.
