Wow! What a month March has been!
First of all, I have an art exhibition at the Evesham Arts Centre. This is my first exhibition, running from 3rd March to 28th April. Four months of hard work, painting my own compositions and trying to teaching lots of wonderful childrens, has been so worth it (this is on top of my two teaching jobs and family life). 31 children have been involved in the exhibition, each painting one piece of a subject that inspires them: flowers, seascapes, animals, holidays, dinosaurs, unicorns, houses to name a selection.
On the 9th March, I launched the exhibition, inviting my friends and family and all the children and their families. It was a massive turnout, which I was completely overwhelmed by. I will never forget the children’s faces of happiness and pride, seeing their artwork on the wall with their own little label. I was really chuffed to have sold ‘Sedentary.’ A little happy dance!
I have been lucky enough to be featured in two local newspapers; the Evesham Journal and the Evesham Observer. The Evesham Observer did a cracking write up, which I was very pleased with.
Each day, I showcased the children’s work on my Facebook Page, Nicki Reg – Artists and Art Tutor. The emotions, comments and shares were fantastic and I hope that the parents and carers showed/told their children about how amazing and talented they are.
To ensure the safety of the children and adults that I teach, I am now a qualified in Emergency First Aid at Work and Emergency Paediatric First Aid. See my blog about the company Cotswold First Aid.
I have organised my first adult workshop being held at The Potted Pantry in Blackminster. I had 6 spaces, which sold out within a few days. I added another two places, one of which is sold. There is only one space left.
A couple of week ago, I was approached by Pier Road Coffee and Art, in Littlehampton, to do an exhibition. In September this year, I will be exhibiting a range of my artwork. Last week, I sent a few samples of my cards and prints. One of prints sold within a few days of arriving at the shop. I did another little happy dance when I heard….as all artists and crafters do when they make a sale!
Last week, I teamed up with Jackson’s Art Supplies to supply you with those essential art materials you need to get creative.

But I couldn’t have done what I have done this month without you. I want to say a massive thank you to the children and adults I teach, the word of month of advertising and all the comments, likes and shares on social media.
I hope you had a lovely month too.
