Is it possible to maintain a sense of balance between the creative roles of teacher and artist? Do you face an ongoing struggle with living what seems like two separate lives? Join in this webinar to explore some of the challenges many art teachers have in finding time, energy, and space to make their own work and discover successful strategies that can be employed to help maintain harmony and success within each of these worlds. Be ready to share your challenges and the approaches that have helped you with your personal art practice as we delve into how it is possible to establish a relationship between teaching and creating art by understanding how these two worlds can inspire and inform one another.
