This month I had the opportunity to host and teach my first Ladies Night Out Art Class! I teach Elementary art classes and private art lessons throughout the school year. Some friends have mentioned that they would love to learn more about how I do some of my work, so I thought it would be fun to try an adult class as well!
We had a awesome time! I am so happy we had such a great turn out. I held the class on a Friday evening in my home. We did two art projects that touched on two different art skills. There was also plenty of eating and chatting, so basically it was a party. ;)
Each lady had a seat set up with all her supplies and marked with a personalized watercolor journal. Upon arriving, everyone found their seats and started visiting and eating.
The first project we worked on was a marbled watercolor State painting. Each person let me know which State, or Country she wanted to paint beforehand while signing up for the class. I had each State/Country printed out and included in the materials. I loved seeing all the different places each lady chose that means something to her. It was awesome to see all the different color schemes that were chosen.
These all turned out beautiful!
The second project was a personalized wooden sign featuring each lady's take on modern calligraphy. Each seat included a guide with the alphabet and a sheet to practice writing the last name. The ladies also chose the color wood they preferred upon signing up for the class. This is one of my favorite projects! I loved the creativity each person had, and how some wrote something completely different than their names!
Each attendee went home with a bag that included one of our "thank you" cards, chocolate, her watercolor journal, and the hardware to hang her wooden sign at home. We also had a drawing giving away 3 of our graphic phrase pencil bags full of more goodies. ;)
I loved having this class and the opportunity to be creative with so many amazing ladies! I am excited to host another class in the Fall. To follow along with the Ladies Night Art Classes on Instagram, check out #lnoartclass. Be sure to tag #lnoartclass in any photos you share from the night!
