I’ve been teaching oil painting to beginners for a while now. You would have told me 15 years ago that I would be teaching, and I would’ve scoffed at the idea. I NEVER imagined myself doing this!
I’m not an extrovert, talking in front of people doesn’t come easy to me, so to say there was some resistance is an understatement. But I had this strong inner feeling that this was the direction I needed to take, so I did.
And I’m so glad I did, because not only did I discovered that I really enjoy teaching, but I’ve been told that I’m actually good at it.
