How to Break Down Barriers & Showcase Your Talent – Art Made Easy 021

How one art teacher pushed past blocks to showcase her art talents: Art Made Easy  episode with Paintbrush Rocket's Ginger Bowman-Pacer

Art teacher and blogger, Ginger Bowerman-Pacer of Paintbrush Rocket shares how she pushed past the barriers that were holding her back from creating a platform for her teaching resources.

In an honest and vulnerable conversation about the joys and struggles of teaching art, Ginger confronts the stories she told herself that prevented her from starting a blog and sharing her talents with others to being partners in an exciting new art adventure.

If you love conversations about change, following your gut, taking a leap of faith, pushing away blocks, then you will love listening to Ginger.

  1. Ginger, I love your stuff! I’m an art teacher too. In a week I leave for Peru to paint a 25′ mural in the rainforest. The school is Refuge of Hope and the kids are disabled. I hope they can help. I’d like to share your “When Cats Fly” as inspiration. how can I get a copy of the design?
