Class Announcement.... Delicious Paint

It is a rare thing that I am nervous about a post
 but this one has my heart beating a little bit faster
 I am teaching a class, starting June 1, over on U Thrive at Community Thrive
 and today it all opens for registration and announcements are being made
 and all that oh my giddy aunt this is really real type freak out is happening about now

 so all of a sudden I am beset by uncharacteristic nerves
 which is mad because I know it is going to be great fun
 and I have heaps of experience teaching, though usually it is in person
So I am basically taking my two day in person workshop plan and adapting it for online
I know it is going to be great... but still the nerves are buzzing
not to mention so much excitement is fizzing off my brain it's giving me a bad hair day
so big girl pants time... here is the dish...

It is called Delicious Paint
and of course is all about drawing and painting delicious watercolours of delicious food and then making them into a book thingy... which I can't show you because it isn't made yet
because I haven't filmed the class 
because we are working on a tight turn around
but trust me it is all planned and it is going to be awesome fun
here is a video with some info for you if you are interested ...

detail time...
It is run on Community Thrive as one of their Flourish 201 courses
you need to join Community Thrive to take part, but it is free to sign up
and it is one of the friendliest places online so you will love being part of it...
Classroom opens on June 1 2015 and closes August 31st
the class will be made up of four lessons
 with each lesson looking like being between 45 mins and an hour in length
plus pdf's of all the relevant info
and of course there will be a  dedicated classroom and I will be on the discussion boards and in the classroom on a regular basis to give you feedback and to get to know everyone
not to mention I am setting up a board on Pinterest for us to share our work
and there is a great page on Facebook run by Community Thrive where we can be interacting as well, 
so lots of chances to be as involved online as suits you but the main thing is that you will be in a safe environment and you can be as involved as you like... this is no pressure learning

there is also a mentoring option which is a much smaller classroom 
within the Delicious Paint classroom
and involves more intensive one on one interaction across the three months
which is going to be more like me sitting down with you and having a cuppa and talking about your work and progress... which sounds like fun right

for me the main thing is that this is a course that shares my love of painting all things food related and sharing my process so that people feel more confident
and hopefully show you how easy and fun watercolours can be
not to mention inspire you to jump in with both feet and try lots of new things
or perhaps get a fresh take on some skills you already have

Costs are $55 USD for Delicious Paint, and $75 USD for the mentoring option 
and registration is open... now
if you have any questions... email me on tki46582@bigpond.net.au
or pop them in the comments and I will get back to you
or head over here to Community Thrive for more information

happy painting all...xx

Yay I'm in! I can't wait, I haven't had a watercolor class in about 2 years. Looking forward to this.

What an exciting time for you and all your fans and students.
I would wish you luck, but you don't need it; it will be a runaway success. But I do wish you nerves of steel to deal with any disruptive elements you may come across in class. Not mentioning any names of course *cough*Denise*cough* hehehe
{{Hugs}} xox

Nice to see you, Tracey, and what exciting news! I so enjoyed watching your carrot videos, I'm sure this class will be a wonderful experience for everyone.

Laila said...

Yay! Just bought this class and can't wait for it to start. Good luck to all of us!

Debbie said...

I just signed up for your class! I can't wait for it to start.

Sandra Busby said...

An awesome video!! And I'm pleased to see you have two eyebrows! Yay!!!
I am so excited for you - this is going to be amazing and I have no doubt that you will be one of the most popular classes! :0)

sandra de said...

Wonderful news on your new class. signing up right now. :)

Melisa said...

I'm a little late seeing this, but congratulations! You'll be great! I know I'd love to take a class with you sometime. Can't do June, though, and with my crazy food restrictions, food isn't a good subject for me. I hope you'll do more of them! Watercolor hates me, but I haven't given up hope for it.

Unknown said...

Tracey, I finally took the time to watch your videos. I love everything!!! So good to see and hear you and to observe how you paint :) <3

I'd really like to to take the class (the delicious one) but the time frame isn't right for me - it's moving time, you know. I'm sure you'll have classes later one again, as I assume they'll be a big hit :)
Love your style so much (but you already knew that ;))

Cheers! ...still from Sweden, soon from the U.S.
