In June of this year I began my dream of teaching art. I came upon a new franchise called Paint Nite Edmonton where they provide all the supplies, marketing, sign ups and most of all students. They find bars and restaurants in the city that have nights that aren’t typically busy and they host an evening of painting.

I get to teach different paintings each week to a whole new group of students. Each painting takes approximately 2 hours and by the end of the night painters walk away with their very own painting they’ve done all by themselves!

It is such a treat to watch the students go from skeptical ‘non-painters’, to prideful excited new painters! There have been tears of joy and hugs after every class.

It is the best feeling in the world!
