The GA School By The Sea Porcelain Arts School
How have you been? It’s been a while since I updated my blog. I returned to Japan from America a week ago. While I was there, I started walking in the morning and I still have been keeping on walking every morning in Japan. It’s really good for me to start a day.
Today’s entry is what I painted in America. I got in the GA school by the sea porcelain arts school and took three classes from international teachers.
My first class was painting a miniature scene with an ex Meissen painter, Joerg Kugelmeier. I met him at the Thai convention last year, and even though I exchanged a small conversation with him, I didn’t talk to him. So, I was a bit nervous to take his class, but taking his class was extremely fun and I really enjoyed it. He was a great teacher and painter. I love painting with the Meissen technqiues. I’m thinking that to go his painting studio in Germany to learn the Meissen techniques more next year! Thank you so much for teaching, Joerg! I’m looking forward to piking on our BAD English each other again, lol!!!!!
I painted one more plate for my mom during the class.
My second class was painting a miniature portrait with Cookie Barton, an American portrait painter. Since I like painting royal families, I really enjoyed painting the boy’s portrait. Cookie was also a very good teacher. Since she invited me to go to her painting studio in Oregon, I really want to stop by her painting studio to take her class more!!
She didn’t touch my portrait and just taught me how to paint it. I love the way that a teacher doesn’t touch a student painting because I can think about my painting.
My Last class was how to do raised past and gold with Sylvia Beythoun from England. I met her three years ago at the Arizona school for the first time. Since then she has been my friend. I love raised pasts and gold, but I’m not good at it and I needed a good teacher. I’m glad that I learned it from her. I really love her gorgeous work and from now on, I want to use the techniques on a lot of my work! I also plan on going to England to learn more from her next year!! See you next year, Sylvia!!!!
I enjoyed learning, hanging out with my friends, painting and everything at the school! I hope I can go there next year again!
