Teaching Private Art Lessons
After much encouragement from peers - I've been teaching private (and very small group) art lessons and love it! The students are all doing so well and I enjoy the peaceful time in the studio. It's most satisfying to see them making such dramatic progress in a short period of time. The transformation in their work is often so surprising that I've decided to start taking pictures at the end of their first lesson day so students can see how far they advance.
I understand as a life-long learner myself that looking at how quickly they've advanced gives students the courage to take another leap. So, I encourage them to keep that first drawing/painting as their best inspiration to keep growing.
