Holiday Paintings with Teens

Posted by Chae Designs - Michelle 'Chaella' Boddie | Posted in , , , , , , | Posted on 3:05 PM

Hello, Friends!  The art class students featured in the images, below, are teenage members of Jack & Jill.  They came to paint via an event their parents scheduled.  I enjoyed demonstrating the painting and helping them paint their versions of the featured holiday wreath.  I think their versions of the paintings are really good!  I like their choices of unique accents.

During the painting process, everyone took a break to enjoy the meal and desserts that the parents prepared.  While all were eating, the paintings dried in preparation for the next layer of the art!

This was another wonderful Jack & Jill group I've had the pleasure & honor to teach an art class for!

A Petite Painter of Abstracts

Posted by Chae Designs - Michelle 'Chaella' Boddie | Posted in , , , , , , | Posted on 2:45 AM

Hello, Everyone!  The little artist featured in the images below, came to paint with me, thanks to her mother enjoying her painting experience approximately one week earlier.  Her mother created another beautiful abstract and they created a separate abstract, together.  As a petite artist she did a wonderful job painting.  You can see her artwork, below!  I think she's 5 years of age; didn't she do a great job of painting with her mother?! I really enjoy seeing families paint together; it is a wonderful experience, all around!

Party: Painting, Miss Kitty and A Frog Prince

Posted by Chae Designs - Michelle 'Chaella' Boddie | Posted in , , , , , | Posted on 6:40 PM

Good Day!  Friends, this class was part of a birthday party for a little girl, that favors Hello Kitty themes.  So, I came up with a Hello Kitty that was part-Princess, and part-Ballerina!  The boys (& girls) had the option to paint a Frog Prince, as well.  Additionally, the option to paint something of their own idea(s) was offered for those that wanted to paint something different. 

As you can see, this class included painters that are pre-teens, teens and their grand-pa!  This was another wonderful art class with birthday party combined!  Three generations were at this party, and there are a lot of parents and grandparents that were there, yet not on the images below.  They had a great time as well.  I certainly appreciated their assistance in distributing more paint, as the painters needed it.  Every child was a delight to work with and so were the parents and grand-parents. 

I've totally enjoyed demonstrating the paintings during the classes, and I am looking forward to doing so on an even greater level for the multi-generational classes, as well!  After the preliminaries have taken place, I can discern the moment students of each age begin to focus on what they're doing with paint and paint brushes, due to how quiet they become.  As they paint they appear to be discovering that they have the ability to make art, and that is always a wonderful experience to witness those moments of discovery!

Cocktails, Canvases & A Bordeaux Glass

Posted by Chae Designs - Michelle 'Chaella' Boddie | Posted in , , , , , , , | Posted on 3:54 AM

Good Morning, Everyone!  The students in the images, below, have such a romantic reunion story.  They reunited after many years apart since school, reconnected very recently and felt as if they had only been separated for a short amount of time.  They were absolutely delighted to participate in this class for two that he scheduled for them. 
In all the excitement of getting to the class, together, they forgot to bring snacks that evening.  Among other snacks, we had a lot of cheese puff balls left over from the 'You Don't Know Jack' pumpkin-themed painting classes, and I offered them.  As it turns out, cheese puff balls are one of her absolute favorite snacks!  In a wonderful way, those cheese puff balls added to their notions of a 'tailored-for-them, meant-to-be-evening for the two of them! 
As we painted, we had a great conversation about reunited love and romance.  I hope they're still enjoying another season of their 'Happily Ever After'!

Cocktails, Canvases & Stilettos

Posted by Chae Designs - Michelle 'Chaella' Boddie | Posted in , , , , , , | Posted on 3:20 AM

Hello, Everyone!  These hostess for this class invited a small group of her friends.  However, some had to cancel.  So, we continued with the class anyway and these two best-friends enjoyed creating their version of the painting. 

After aiding during (and teaching) several Canvas Over Cocktails classes, I realized the value in advising the students to enjoy their cocktails after the first hour of painting.  I began telling the students this so that 'wine-eyes' (as I call them) do not prevent them from creating a nice version of the featured painting.  During this class, 'wine-eyes' did impact one's painting, so I gave her instructions on how to un-do the impacted parts, at home, in a day or two.  She was pleased to know that she could do so!  We can see the great talent rising from what they painted, so far! 

The Canvas Over Cocktails themed classes seems to delight the participants so much, because they come with beloved friends and family ready to relax, enjoy each other's camaraderie and the painting process.  It's been a delight to observe this type of atmosphere during classes!

Hello, Friends!  These two families were such a delight to instruct (all of my students have been a delight, really)!  We painted unique pumpkin-themed paintings for the 'You Don'r Know Jack' at the Blu' Bique event, first.  Then, actual fresh pumpkins were painted with their custom, unique designs!  The art that these students created on canvas and on pumpkin is so nice!

Their creativity shows through the custom details they added to their works of art! So many artists and such great artwork!

Party: Painted Bouquets in Vases

Posted by Chae Designs - Michelle 'Chaella' Boddie | Posted in , , , , , | Posted on 8:25 PM

Hello, Friends!  Today's images are of painting students and their artwork created during a birthday party event for a newly-teenage girl.  This painting of a floral bouquet in a vase was based on another artist's version, which was red, bright yellow, white and black.  My version has the pink background, with green, brown, white, blue and orange colors.  The young ladies featured, below, enjoyed creating their bouquets on canvas. 

As you can see each young lady, artist, created a uniquely styled version of the painting, yet each one is lovely, frame-worthy and gallery display-worthy!  I enjoyed working with these young ladies and their families.  Their families were delighted to observe and listen as their daughters learned to paint this painting.  What an all-around delight this class was!

were much less beautiful than the ONE who rules them all. The Creator of beauty itself created them.
