Tuesday:) Teaching Is The Art Of Sharing

18 May

“The mediocre teacher tells. The good teacher explains. The superior teacher demonstrates. The great teacher inspires.”

I had another wine glass painting class at Lone Star Wine Cellars this evening. It’s always exciting to see the proud smiles when each is finished with their masterpiece. I am especially happy when I teach them new techniques and give them a few tips and tricks of the trade.

My first tip was, “Do not rinse out your paint brush in your wine glass.” It has been know to happen. I start out with a large demonstration on an easel with a very large flat brush, teaching one stroke double loading techniques. The ladies did a variety of bluebonnets, daisies, Queen Anne’s lace, and experimented with other ideas.

  
   
    
   
They did a great job, don’t you think? 

I hope that I inspired them to try painting another time.
