WOYWW 195 - Finished Canvas!

WOYWW has arrived.   If you don't know what "WOYWW" is all about go over to  Stamping Ground.  A big shout out to Julia for making this happen every week!

Yay!  I finished the HUGE (11 x 14) canvas.  I'm happy with how it came out.  I started a small (8 x 10) canvas.  I think this is the one I'll use to teach the class.  Speaking of which, those of you that teach and get paid for teaching - how much do you get and how much does the store get?  I'm just curious about this.  No supplies will be included in the price.

The desk as it is Tuesday night but won't change before Wednesday.
My little canvas (not done), paints, Mod Podge, and some extra birdies
I just noticed that my paper plate palette is the same colors as on my canvas!!  Isn't it funny what you see in your photos once you post them.

As always, I will visit those that end in the same number as me and those that visit me (please leave your number).  I have tried to write specific comments to the posts but I'm finding that I'm taking too long - so I'll just zip in and read and oooh and ahhh and leave a brief comment.  Please don't take offense.  I just want to visit more desks!

Peace,
Kay

I adore those birdies! That is a beautiful canvas. I really should show what's on my desk this week.....but it's a HUGE mess.

Almo said...

Morning Kay, I love the delicate background and the way the white has softened the lined on your birdie canvas. Funny you mentioned the plate I thought it was just paint! Happy WOYWW Hugs Mo x

Glad to see your delightful canvas is finished.
I used to get paid £175 for a workshop that was including a repeat (ie one worksop - two full day sessions). The store would make money on the goods sold as a result of my promoting them plus £65 - £105 depending on the number of students per class. They charged £20 per student and all materials provided plus coffee and cake. That was a couple of years ago. They've since retired.
Hope this helps
Hugs, Neet xx

Love the canvas! The store I teach at provides all the materials for the classes. We then split 70/30 on the fees charged. My tag, card, and recipe card classes are 3 tags/cards/recipe cards for a $20 class fee. I get $6 per person. If I do a chip board book or a canvas I make more money...usually a 50/50 split cause it take longer for me to come up with the idea/display and to teach it. Hope this helps some. Hope you have a great week and thanks for sharing with us! Vickie #41

Psst...It's awfully late here and I really shouldn't be visiting at this hour, but it seems ages since I've nipped over to you.
That's a beautiful canvas and such cute birdies...you have been busy ;D
I haven't taken part in WOYWW for a few weeks because I couldn't get to the artwork due to answering and visiting everyone so I think I'm only going to enter once a month...that way I hope I'll have more to show! That's my plan anyway...let's hope it works! :D
I see my button on your sidebar and want to thank you so much for grabbing it...it did make my day and I really appreciate it.
Have a wonderful week.
Ooops nearly forgot to say loved the flower photos. They are beautiful. xoxo

Lunch Lady Jan said...

Love your birdies and the red flowers (poppies?) too, you look as if you're having fun!! Good luck with the teaching, hope it goes well :)
Hugs, LLJ 38 xxx

MaggieC said...

Never had the confidence to try teaching, other than helping friends and family, which does not really count. I would have thought, that the store would have employed you and paid you. After all, they will get a good does of cash from the goods they sell during and after the class. Your canvas has really flowered and is lovely. have a good week. xx Maggie #15

Connie said...

Hello Kay, Your piece turned out beautiful . . . I'm so proud of you . . . branching out and spreading your wings, to teach a class. It just goes to show that we are always on an adventure of new experiences with excitement and delight around every new challenge that we are brave enough to try. Oh, I just have to say it again, "I Am So Proud Of You, & Your Piece Is Lovely"!
Have a blessed day,
Your blogging sister, Connie :)

sandee said...

I don't teach, I find it too stressful, lol I worry too much! BUT, I absolutely love how your canvas turned out, it's fabulous!!! Thanks so much for visiting my desk today!! waving hi from the hills of North Carolina ♥

Love your Canvas, and the colors you used are perfect. (even on the plate) Yep I know what you mean, after you take a pic things just jump out at you sometimes...
Thanks for stopping by too!!!

Caro said...

The finished canvass is fantastic! Well done you. The little one looks promising as well. Thanks for sharing. Happy WOYWW. Mr Linky has disappeared from Julia's blog, but I was somewhere around #65! Caro x

Anne said...

That is some gorgeous canvas! Beautiful work! Thanks for visiting me as well on my first WOYWW!

fairy thoughts said...

Hi Kay
fab canvas and you look as if you have been having fun.
As for the teaching...I do a few workshops at work and normally charge £15 per hour (plus a free lunch, if there is such a thing). all materials are paid for by the store. If it is a new class I will get some working out time as well. hope this helps.

Colorful canvasses, Kay, I love them. That will be a fun class! Barb #146

Nan G said...

Love the bird canvas! And the new smaller one is so gorgeous already! I would love to teach something like this. The demographics in my area are such that only cards are of interest. I do three cards for $15. I supply the card stock they need to bring all tools needed. We call it the basic crafters kit here.

Cheryl said...

I adore your art! I have tons of paint and I never seem to pull it out and play with it.. you've inspired me :-)

VonnyK said...

Love both of your canvasses, had to laugh at the 'big one' as big to me is over 4' x 3'. They take a while to paint I can tell you.
Birdies are so cute. Hope you get paid plenty for your classes.
Have a great week.

Joynana said...

Kay, I do love the birds on the wire. You did an awesome job on this. Wish I was near to take your class. sounds like fun. #106

RosA said...

The canvasses look great! You should be very pleased with them! Happy late WOYWW,

Liz Black said...

I love your canvases, they are sooo cool. In answer to your question, I have had an arrangement where we split the course fee 50:50 after expenses. I try and work out a rough per person amount for materials and sometimes the store will allow an amount for refreshments etc. That way, we both benefit from trying to make sure the workshop is full. Hope that helps and Happy Woyww

Julia Dunnit said...

I LOVE this and would sign up immediately for the class - it's just the sort of thing I never get round to doing at home. I do 'teach' workshops as I'm sure you know, and will happily share my pricing structure if you wanna email me!

Craftychris said...

Your finished bird canvas is gorgeous! The one of your desk is looking good too! xx #138

Judith Tetley said...

Hi Kay I am back in Blog land again !
I love both your canvases, are your birds hand or die cut? they are so cute.It's funny how some times we pick the same colours without realizing it. Hope your workshop goes well, clever you!
Happy art making

I love both canvasses Kay, especially like the little on on your desk this week. Good luck with the workshops, I've no idea how much to be paid for such a thing though.

Winnie said...

Thanks for visiting Kay! Love your canvas. I have only made one canvas so far (I work on cards) and it was birds too...Took Dina Wakley's bird canvas class. She may be helpful to ask class questions too. Love how your birds stand out against your cool background.
