Create a Colorful Butterfly Art Canvas

I'm Celeste and I'm the youngest Skillshare teacher at 7 years old. I love art!

Here is the link to my class:

It is called: Create a Colorful Butterfly Art Canvas!

I taught my friends how to do this art project last summer. Now I can teach more people through Skillshare. It is fun and easy to do, and very, very beautiful!

I filmed this class in April, and finished editing it in May. Here is a picuture of me filming my class:


I learned a lot about teaching, filming and editing. I learned how to use Camtasia to cut out the "umms" and to do voiceovers and add music.


Today I showed my art teacher at school my finished artwork. She was so excited that I'm an art teacher like her and she can't wait to take my class!

Another teacher commissioned me to make a butterfly art canvas for her craft room, too. Cool!


I published my class yesterday, and brought flyers to school today. If you like art, please take my free art class. I would love to see what you create!
