Often artists are asked to teach their medium, technique or craft, but have no experience in how to structure an effective workshop or course. This Boot Camp will present tools to help you impart what you know, and will cover the virtues of setting the tone (ground rules), step-by-step learning, learning by example, hand-outs, PowerPoint and varying the rhythm of a workshop (teaching, doing together and doing independently). Teaching art workshops can be an important revenue stream for artists. Learn some skills in this area and increase your income!
