Teaching Art 101 e-Course Update

The summer e-course is SOLD OUT. Please join me on October 15-November 2, 2012 when I offer the course again. Registration will begin early September. Thank you!


I am thrilled to announce that the Teaching Art 101 e-Course is almost filled to capacity! I will be accepting only 20 additional students. I hadn’t planned on capping registration, but I want to ensure that you all get the attention you deserve. Because of this response, I will offer this 3-week course again on Monday, October 15th-Friday, November 2, 2012. Please note that I cannot guarantee that the class content and fee will remain the same. After the summer course ends, I will be analyzing the course content and might make changes. Registration for the Fall session will begin around end-September. (Yay!)

Thank you so much for your encouraging words of support as I venture into this new phase of Deep Space Sparkle. I have been working very hard devising a course that will get you motivated, inspired and empowered! I can’t wait for you all to see the new lessons, tips on teaching the familiar ones and getting to know you better on the forums. Honesty, designing this course is just so much fun and I can’t think of a better way to kick off my summer!

If you have signed up and paid for this course, I will be sending you all a confirmation email this Friday, June 8th. Please make sure that you check the email that you used for payment. This is very important as this is the only email we have on file. If you do not receive an email, and you are certain that you have paid, please email me privately at patty.palmer@deepspacesparkle.com. This email will contain a form for you to fill out, plus required art supplies and a few other technical details.

    I am so glad that I caught this e-mail today. I have been wanting to sign up for your course but hadn’t had a chance to register yet. I just registered and I am glad to have a spot in your first session. I can’t wait! I have previously taught Fourth Grade, and Preschool, and after a break at home with my little ones I will be back teaching (in the Elem. Schools) my first year of Art. I already know I am going to benefit so much from your class. Thanks ahead of time for all of the hard work you have put into this e-course!
    Take Care!
