Then Matt said, "You're definitely an art teacher!"
Yeah, I am!
Oh, and the list doesn't stop there! I've been working hard on marketing myself with all of my art classes for this summer such as: BAAY Summer Art Camps, WCC Kids College with art classes, and adult painting parties at private studios and at local art museums such as MoNA in La Conner. This means that I create fliers, posters, (I do get awesome help from BAAY for the fliers/posters), put them up around town, hand out to friends and families, send out a monthly email newsletter, take photos of art examples, update my website/social networks, talk to parents/kids/clients about my future art classes, write emails, and call back clients. I also found the time to fill out an application for an art grant to assist me in my personal art project for next fall. The cherry on top is that I love being an art teacher!
If anyone were to ask me what it's like to be an art teacher, I would have to think long and hard on how to respond, without having to write a book.
Maybe I should do just that.
