So What is Creative Workshop?
A workshop is a series of educational and work sessions. Usually in a small groups of people meeting together over a short period of time to learn and gain knowledge of art or design.
Another way for Artists and designers to earn income is to use your skills and expertise to teach in art or design workshops. This is a fantastic option to make a good living as a creative educator. Running workshops also give you great creditability and exposure to the creative community. It will also keep you on the pulse with what is happening in the creative industries. As you teach you grow as person and the people who you teach will also growth their skills and knowledge too. That’s what we call a win win situation!
However, teaching and running workshops is not for everyone. You need to enjoy teaching and have the passion and the patience to share this with others.
The key to success with workshops is to start with “YOU”; why you would like to teach and what you would love to teach.
What it means to you?
