What a beautiful location in Chula Vista, California. Before class I walked around looking for my contact to meet, I saw many interesting things at Westmont. Hairsalon, exercise room, great smells coming from the lunch room, and a Bistro - with TV and drinks and fruits for the taking - that's where I was to teach.
Before class started, I had a few moments to talk to some of the residence. One interesting elderly man, he shared he was "80" and wasn't a artist, he was a singer and began singing a song in a loud, deep, amazing voice one of my favorite genre's "gospel". I thanked him for that. I had never been serenaded before my class. I liked it.
I had 12 students and most finished their tile and enjoyed the new art method. Some were happy just to watch as my tile came to life with patterns I taught them. They wanted to know when I would be back and one student as if we could draw a dreamcatcher.
I had a first in my class: doggie student - okay, mascot.
