Inspire to Teach Your Art?

Inspiring Teachers


Have you envied your artist friends who post photos of creative workshops they’re teaching in Santa Fe or Hawaii or Mexico and wondered how they got so lucky? Or envied those artists who are holding virtual classes from their own studios? If you’ve thought, “I’d love to do that but I wouldn’t know where to begin” or “I haven’t got the credentials to teach art,”

Well, it isn’t about luck OR credentials.

   Since I was a child, I knew I wanted to teach art although I made a huge life-circle back to teaching. But I know that many of you haven’t ever facilitated workshops or classes and are just beginning to get the itch to share what you know and love.

Maybe you’re not really sure if you’re “qualified” to teach or how you would go about organizing classes or how to get people to enroll in your workshops.

One benefit artists gain from teaching workshops is the added income. If you want to earn more than you are from selling your art, facilitating classes sure beats a job-job to supplement your bankroll.

But money isn’t the only reason to teach.

   Besides getting to hang out with other creatives, facilitating classes expands your exposure in the art community, gives you the opportunity to show (and sell) more of your own work and can bring you invitations to teach at other events and participate in open studios.

What if you love to go to workshops and take classes but don’t really feel called to teach?

One of the best ways I know to get to take lots of courses is to bring artists together to create your own gatherings or retreats and it isn’t really difficult to do.

There was such a tremendous response to my recent inquiry about a course for those of you who want to organize workshops or add teaching to your portfolios that I knew I had to create this program.

So I’ve gathered some of the most brilliant and inspiring facilitators in the arts to share their experiences with those who want to add teaching, mentoring or multi-artist workshops to your portfolio of creative profit centers. The guest list includes those who teach fine art, mixed media, writing, yoga, culinary arts, songwriting, poetry, beach dancing, jewelry and mandala making and more.

And some of these teachers also teach the teachers.

We’ll hear from some who teach virtually from their home studios and others who travel to beautiful locations around the world to facilitate at artists gatherings or organize workshops at retreat centers.

In addition to the wisdom of all these heart-centered teachers, you’ll get my guidance and expertise on the business end of presenting or organizing workshops.

You’ll learn how to plan and organize your courses, how to get students to sign up, where to source supplies and even ideas for how teaching your art can lead to other profit centers. Some of the most in-demand teachers and facilitators will share their experiences with you and we’ll also have an optional private Facebook community where you can hop in and ask me questions and get to know each other. You might even find kindred folk you’d like to collaborate with.


with wisdom from some of the most brilliant and in-demand teachers in the arts.

The Inspiring Teachers Course will begin March 1 but enrollment is limited so if you want to be sure to get in, REGISTER NOW BELOW. 

You’ll receive an email from me every day in March with a mix of written, audio and video to accommodate different learning styles. Some parts will happen live and others will be pre-recorded and you’ll get the whole course digitally to keep and work through at your own pace.
