Teaching Private Art Classes

I'm overwhelmingly grateful for the turn my life has taken this last year! I'm no longer substitute teaching, but rather working full time as a private art teacher. If only I'd kept a blog of the journey thus far!. There's no way I could have anticipated the challenges and blessings I've encountered working for myself. Every week I pour hours of work into each lesson. It feels like an extravagant luxury, but I keep telling myself that someday I'll use the lessons again. While I'm sure that's true, I also want to share them with others. At a time when so many people are out of work, I'd love to see other artists/teachers use what I've learned. Each post will have a new lesson or idea.

  1. Hello! You are doing EXACTLY what I would love to do for a living. I am a certified art teacher but have taught in a regular classroom for 2 years now. I miss teaching art so much!
    Do you mind me asking how you got started, how you found students to enroll in your classes, how you organize your days, etc.? Thank you sooo much!
