A New Adventure

Well here's a cautionary tale about being careful of what you ask for...for quite a while now, I've been thinking that I'd like to try my hand at teaching art workshops to adults (read as:  people who want to be there, not a captive audience).  A few weeks ago, I mentioned this to a friend and it seems like the universe just took me at my word because last week there was a call for teachers at a local gallery (CITY OF THE WORLD in the arts district here in Las Vegas).  I spoke with Roz Knight (an amazing artistic force in this city) and within minutes I found myself "signed up" to teach classes there!  I'm excited and slightly terrified as I begin preparing for three 3-hour workshops to be held on the first three Sundays of December.  We'll be doing "Mail Art".  Each session will consist of different techniques and ideas.  I finished a couple of flyers and will begin hanging/handing them out this weekend.  Woo-hoo!  Hopefully people will show up...

Hi Julia, thanks for your visit and encouragement - so much appreciated! I would love to art journal ....not had much success with it sadly. Perhaps you could develop an online course from the course you are creating now! I'm still making art as well as writing my poetry but I've been working on a bigger art project for a while now. Its kept me warm during these colder evenings. I can't wait to see what develops now that it is your time. pen xxx
