I’ve known that I wanted to teach since I left college. At one point I even applied to Grad school to get my masters so that I could teach at the university level. But I didn’t get in and the program was in Fort Collins and I knew that that hour drive wouldn’t fit into my life as things started rolling forward.
Recently I realized I didn’t need a fancy degree to teach. With my knowledge on art and collage, I could teach workshops. This has been a bug in my head since last Thanksgiving and has slowly been percolating in my head.
I had so much fun teaching this group of ladies about collage and guiding them through their projects! It was particularly awesome because I knew each person intimately and I enjoyed watching their collages evolve based on their personalities.
I’m looking forward to teaching more workshops in 2013 and I’ve already been talking with several possible opportunities.
