I enjoy TEACHING, getting paid for what I LOVE to share. TEACHING is the "Service" side of my business! Michaels Crafts put out a notice to offer classes in my community, I jumped in on the opportunity. My suggestion...TEACH everywhere you can! Get out there and show everyone what you love & can do! It's both fun and rewarding!
Creating these cute colorful Owls and teaching how to do so, has really paid off well. I have linked to the Michael's site "Community Classroom" for you to find out more information on possibly teaching yourself and to register for class . Many thanks to Michaels Craft Store!
As a business woman and artist I can never say enough about making a name for yourself in your own community by showing your work in FREE venues that are great networking avenues to promote yourself, your work, your art and your services. I teach my trade of Calligraphy and hand lettering and every little bit helps in getting the word out. Plus I have more content to share on my social media sites. It all works together! If you get the chance go by and see the Calligraphy Exhibit still going on at the South Valleys Library Now till Aug. 30th 15650A Wedge Parkway Reno NV 89511 This is one of the pieces you will see in the show!. Stop by your local Library and see what you can make happen!
This show was scheduled 2 years ago. Sometimes it takes that long to make things happen. Look ahead to the future and see what YOU can make happen. Get the ball rolling now for the future! If you are anywhere near Reno, NV stop on in and take a look!

In Phoenix at CREATIVATION I was able to take a workshop/seminar with renowned Calligrapher/Scribe Paul Antonio. He helped to confirm that I am on the right track on how I approach my teaching of lettering and Calligraphy! Thank you Paul!
