My first podcast interview

And it was fabulous to speak with Patty Palmer of Deep Space Sparkle.

I have been following Patty’s blog for years, and regularly recommended her site to teachers who asked me about art for kids, and last year I signed up to be a ‘Sparkler’ on her membership site.

As a result of an instagram message when she was preparing a bundle of Australian themed lesson plans, Patty saw what I do and invited me to teach on her upcoming Draw Paint Make online workshop (it’s on 7 July – here’s the link for more info).

So I seriously have to pinch myself.

Now, it IS a long interview. I usually listen to podcasts while I’m painting or in the car or setting up my studio space for a class, so that’s highly recommended.

And yes, it’s VERY HARD to listen to myself speak and there’s definitely a few sayings that were my ‘favourites of the day’ and I hope weren’t too bothersome – but there’s a learning for next time!

Thank you so much to Patty for having me. I do love talking about art and acrylics, so what can I say? It was grand!

Can’t wait til ‘Draw Paint Make’ now!

About Anna Battle

I’m an artist, guide, mother and a very handy Art Friend! 

My life’s mission is to share the joy of drawing and painting.

In 2011 I started offering in-studio guided Paint Alongs, and my first online course, 15 Flowers, went live in 2015.

I now offer online Paint Alongs and workshops so that you can reconnect to the creativity inside you. Gift yourself the time to paint, and the guidance you need to improve your skills and your confidence. 

I invite you to join me and see the world through the eyes of an artist!

If not now, when?
