Library Art Teacher?
Fun library-related news update. I got approached by the 'boss lady' at one of the branch libraries where I work and she presented me with a problem and then a solution that delighted me to death. She hosts storytime for preschool children, and homeschool kids age 5-7. She's noticed some of her homeschool kids are getting too old for storytime and their parents brought up a great solution. They'd seen my art in the display case at the library (back in November-December of 2012) and liked what they saw, so they suggested I teach their older kids an art class to be held during the same time as storytime. Of course I grinned all big and immediately began ploughing up ideas.
The possibilities are endless and this'll give me experience teaching art to older children, so that if I want to do it as more of a full-time gig in future, I won't feel so unprepared. (It'd make more practical use of my degrees too.)
I love that my job, while incredibly awesome as it is, just keeps getting better and better!
