I have been running decorative art classes for about 10 years. It is rewarding when you see students coming in with no idea what painting is all about, but through months of hard work of regular classes and lots of practice on their own at home, they are able to paint beautiful pieces. The first 2 to 4 months may be tedious, as I will teach students stroke work to build up their foundation. However, as for those who are keen to start on projects, you can attend workshops. Just gather 4 to 5 friends together, and do projects like a coaster, name-card holder, tissue box, etc.
A daisy coaster or a teddy bear door hanger requires 4.5 hrs to complete.
I also run creative workshops for school teachers and private parties.
