I've taught the last week and a half for a friend who went on a cruise with her hubby for his dental school reunion ! It was a great all girls Catholic school, with wonderful students who were very well behaved, and very fun to be with. I enjoyed my week. We had lessons on color, where we painted a color wheel, learned definitions, and color schemes, and then painted some cool designs.... We also did a copper tooling project with the Art appreciation students. Several were working on the Pasta House competition (where students paint a famous painting, and include a plate of spagetti). Several independent students were working on various projects, too. I was able to complete a couple of painting, as well as show the students examples of my work, and my altered books, journaling books, and other art creations. I brought a handful of paintings, and was actually able to illustrate color schemes using my work.....
I came home 'bushed' each day, though, Just like a remembered doing while I taught !!! While teaching, I never had the energy to get paintings done, because on the weekends I had to spend my time catching up with housework and other stuff, like running errands,etc.
All in All-- I wouldn't give up my RETIREMENT FOR ANYTHING !!!! I love not having to set the alarm clock !
By the Way-- Here's a painting from before the teaching 'gig'
