It means a lot to me that so many families have kept their children enrolled here for so long, over the years. Most of my current students have been with me for more than 2 years, some as long as 6 or 7 years! It's certainly not what I had planned or imagined. And I sure to love it. It feels like family, it really does! And I love them all.
I've tried before and chickened out, on creating online lessons so that I could help more people, but now I am pretty stoked to have found a platform that I feel works really well to set up an online course, AND works well from a student point of view of well...
So, with this being 10 years of All Smilez Art School, and (20 years of All Smilez website, back from when I painting personalised portraits), I am darn well going to celebrate!!!
It's not easy being self employed, in little ol' NZ. I'd really love to thank everyone who has supported me over the years, bought my art, or enrolled their kids.
And a HUGE thank you to the people who have left feedback for me to share. This means the world to me, especially now that I need to figure how to get more people to find out about new online art courses and clubs.
This photo is from 10 years ago, when I started after school classes by first renting a room in a school after hours. Not long after that I bought my current home, and started converting the garage (on a tiny budget) into my current studio!!!
If you have special memories from way back then you'd like to share, feel free to email Kim@allsmilez.com or post on our facebook page! I'd love hear how everyone's going.
