Today I’m talking to an art teacher who confesses to being focused on the end result.
Before you judge, listen to how Britt Curley, from the blog, Art Room Britt, sets her intention with her students as they work through mediums, learn techniques and create a beautiful piece of art in the process.
Britt puts a lot of attention on a finely tuned finished product. Craftsmanship, neatness and detail are integrated into her art classes and children respond with enthusiasm and confidence.
Britt shares how she came to teach children in her home, growing from one class with only a couple of children to sold out classes and waiting lists.
You can learn how and what Britt does in her art class during our Draw, Paint, Make Summer Workshop in July. Her presentation, Cultivating Craftsmanship takes a deep dive into setting expectations for children, best tips for creating nuanced, layered art and a walk through how she does one of her most detailed projects. You can learn more HERE.
