I know, I know. Nobody wants the summer to end! Some people are happy to be back at school (or to send their little/not-so-little ones back to school!) and some are perhaps... a touch reluctant that the glorious unscheduled time and freedoms of summertime have come to an end.
Over here in San Francisco, summer endures. As we enter the warmest and sunniest two months of the year in the Bay Area, I'm gearing up to go "back to school" in a sense myself. Next week, I'll be teaching a live (that's right, LIVE) class called "How to Teach a Craft Class" on CreativeLive.
I'm excited about this class for a number of reasons. First of all, I LOVE talking about teaching and all of my experiences over the years of teaching teens, tweens and adults. But I'm pretty sure people don't want to just listen to me ramble off stories about kids hiding under tables or what it's like to take 54 kids to Central America.
So. This class is for anyone who has a craft. This class is for anyone who has ever been told, "Oh, you should TEACH that!" This class is for any artist/crafter/maker who wants to expand their business and add more income. I'm going to show you why you are ALREADY a teacher.
We're going to talk about what's holding you back, and you'll learn the tools and tricks you need to go forth and TEACH. And I promise, it will be FUN. And by the end of it, you'll not only know what to do, but you'll wonder why you weren't doing it already.
RSVP to the course here!
Did you know... you can watch the free live stream on September 2nd and 3rd, which includes a live chat forum where you'll be able to ask questions and interact with me in the San Francisco studio. Whaaat?
Are you out there teaching your craft? Are you an aspiring craft teacher? I'm thrilled to invite you to join the Teacher's Lounge, an online meeting point where you'll be able to connect with other crafty/creative teachers and talk shop! Get advice, find potential teaching gigs, exchange resources, and more. Make sure you're signed up for my newsletter to find out more.
I think you'd like:
- Pam Garrison's Creative Sketchbooking class on Creativebug. Pam gives you the freedom to make mistakes, explore, and have fun using paints, ballpoint pens, collage, and more. I HIGHLY recommend it for a creative jolt! (If you follow my Instagram feed, you'll see it's my own personal obsession right now!)
- You are a Badass by Jen Sincero. The title speaks for itself, but if you are ever wavering that you are, in fact, a badass, PLEASE read this book.
See to you soon:)
