I’m so very proud to advise that I’ve opened the doors to my new Membership level, which is free membership to parts of my silk painting Members’ website.
This is the second Membership Level launched since November 2011, when I opened the first Online Silk Painting 6 Week Membership Course.
At the end of the six weeks of training on how to paint on silk, I can now encourage the Students to sign up for the Free Membership level so they can keep involved with my latest news and new silk painting course updates.
I’m very pleased with the progress of this Membership site, and today I’ve launched 3 Modules inside this new free Membership:
In the video I show how to use a triangle shape and a circle or two semi-circle shapes to create a heart. Sketch onto paper or cardboard, cut it out, and then use it as a template for your silk painting projects:
create several hearts in different sizes
create some hearts wider or longer than others, for variety
paint them in different shades of the same colour, or in different colours
use for Valentine’s Day, Birthdays, Weddings, Anniversaries, Babies, and special occasions of all kinds.
I’d like share a Silk Painting question I’ve received from a few people …
Q: “I’ve never painted on silk before – is it really possible to learn from videos?” A: My answer is, “Yes! You can definitely learn from videos!”.
I believe that this is a marvellous way to learn, and it actually has many benefits over a classroom situation:
in a classroom, you are one of 8 or 10 people vying for the teacher’s attention; with a video, you can pause and play as many times as you like, until you get it right
in a classroom, you generally need to take your own notes while the teacher is talking; with a video, you receive documents to download which include lists of products, step-by-step instructions, checklists etc
in a classroom, you have a set time-frame in which to learn, paint, test the techniques, pack up; with a video, you can take as long as you like, and paint in your pyjamas or in a sarong – at midnight, dawn, 5pm – whatever time suits you.
You can go back to your videos/DVD as many times as you like and HEAR the instructions as well as watching them again; in a classroom you don’t have this luxury, if you miss what’s been said, the time has passed.
Stay tuned for my next free lesson on painting on silk! If you have a question or comment, please fill in the form below, or use one of your preferred places to post messages – I’d love to hear from you! Here are some of the other ways to connect with me:
Today I have a little video to show what’s inside the membership area – I’m still tweaking to get the “look & feel” just right, but there is plenty of content!
over 6 hours of video
tons of PDF documents to download
Checklists to get you started
Instructions & detailed printouts to put in your Silk Folder.
Ready? Here’s the video:
“What did the students think?”
Here are a couple of emails from some of the Students:
“Hi Teena! I am having a great time following along and learning how to paint on silk! I can now access all the links and see all the videos. I find them easy to follow and understand, and love hearing your Aussie accent! Thanks for a great course so far, and I look forward to the upcoming weeks!” Karen-of-Canada
“Teena Teena Teena!! Your excitement is contagious, even if across the miles!” Maryruth, USA
“Thank you Teena for your patience and help during the course I have enjoyed every moment and couldn’t wait for the next Video!” Pam, Australia
What a great bunch of students I had the pleasure to meet and share my knowledge with – I had a blast!
I’m so thrilled that my Online Silk Painting Course has been so well accepted by the first batch of students from around the world! Here is one Student’s silk piece:
We’ve had so much fun getting to know each other, and to watch my students explore, learn and create over these past weeks has been such an honour and a joy – I can’t tell you how excited I’ve been to see some of their handpainted silk results!
