Why I love to teach

Category: Uncategorized

It has been sometime since my last post, how time gets away.

However I felt the need to show this painting to all my friends. It was painted by a friend, an x student of mine. Her name is Kim Staples. I just love it and this is the reason I just love to teach.

In the days when I used to run regular painting classes, I had a very talented Monday night class and Kim was one of these students, We all had such fun, they were all so creative it was a pleasure to teach them what I knew. I think I probably I learnt more from them, than they from me.

As happens people move on with their lives and move away, We all still remain good friends and we often still get together have a good laugh and even sometimes paint together.

Kim has moved to Port Macquarie has has certainly taken her painting a long way. She has done an art therapy course and not only has a regular painting class but she has a class teaching disabled people, she also is teaching the Can Teen (cancer) kids, and is working with the salvation army doing Art Therapy sessions and counselling support sessions for the fire brigade. Recently she was asked to attend a workshop at the national Art Gallery Canberra on setting up an Arts programme for Alzheimer’s. The regional Art  Gallery asked her to set up a pilot programme.

we were in touch via email, just a catch up. I was overcome with joy when she sent me the painting she had done of me.

She wrote:  “I have attached a painting I did of you ages ago. When I was doing my art therapy, we had an exercise. Pick three people that are your mentors. You were my art teacher mentor and inspiration, my main aim was to capture your happy and jolly personality I started by splashing some colour in the background, then painted you to match the background. Very contemporary. Hope you like it.”

Well let me say, I love love love it. and I wrote back and told her, I thought it was wonderful and to my surprise she has asked me if I would like the painting.

How lucky am I?
