I can't believe the summer break is over already and we are back to school! How did that happen so fast?
With the new term comes a new schedule. I have changed things around a little and now run classes Monday to Friday for children, leaving my Saturdays free for Craft Fairs and Workshop days in the studio. I am also running classes for adult beginners now, Monday to Friday and absolutley love it! Are you allowed to have this much fun whilst working? If not, don't tell anyone!
This coming Friday, the 9th September is going to be a busy one for me. I will be running two classes in the 'Over 50's Day' taking place in The Atkins Building where very conveniently I have my studio. I will run a soft pastel class in the morning and a 'get in there and get messy' painting class in the afternoon. Well, you don't actually have to get messy, it isn't compulsary but trust me, you will get so immersed in creating that you will get messy and you won't even notice it! All good fun.
I am hoping that the day will encourage people to try out my morning classes for adult beginners which run from Monday to Friday. My aim is to fill all my classes to capacity to the point where I have to open up some afternoon classes too! I love it so much that I can't think of anything that would fill my day up quite as nicely.
My Panda club children's classes are filling up too and this term I have introduced a new 'Teens and Tweens' class which runs on a Tuesday after school. Pretty much got all ages covered now!
Life is very busy and I find myself thinking about the studio/classes/lesson plans/advertising etc ALL THE TIME! I do have to remind myself that the housework doesn't do itself (unfortunately) and with that in mind I had better get the hoover out and assuage the guilt a little.
Hope you are enjoying the slow change from summer to Autumn, the colours this time of year are wonderful.
Off to clean and spruce my house up. (Trying to say that enthusiastically!)
