One of the ladies whom I used to paint with asked me to teach a watercolor class to the ladies she now paints with, and so I did. I think my friend normally paints with about seven ladies. Last year I did an acrylic class with them. I thought that class had gone fairly well, but maybe I was wrong. Maybe they did not like my teaching techniques or maybe they did not really want to do watercolor. Anyway, only two ladies showed up along with my art buddy. It made for a good time - only having the three of them was easy to teach.
On Tuesday, I had my regular Big Girls art class. We did watercolor animals again with better results. One of the girls did not come because she did not want to paint watercolor animals again. Hmm. Let me tell you what I think when girls or ladies do not show up to class where they are regulars. It is kind of like being on a team - it is a commitment. You don't just not show, because you don't feel like it or don't like what the teacher teaches. You are part of a class. If you have a legit excuse, I understand. As a teacher, I work and plan on each person being there. It is kind of an insult when a person decides she has better things to do. If a person is going to be a no-show, have the courtesy to let me know ahead of time. I will get off the soapbox now.
I would appreciate if anyone who comments would also tell me how the word verification worked or did not work.
