Teaching art classes has many benefits for an artist. Whether you want to work through a local business or craft store or host your own in a workshop, see tips on how to get started with teaching art painting classes.
Learn as You Teach
While you are instructing students, you get the opportunity to learn more about your craft. Students offer a different perspective and a beginner’s mind.
For the teacher, they will have a chance to learn more about the subject matter in a way that is presentable to students.
Earn Additional Income
If you’re not selling as many paintings as you would like to, art classes give you an opportunity to make more money. If you’re charging about $20 per student, then you can easily earn an additional $100-$200 a class. Plus, you get to network with other artists and even advertise your work.
Even if you’ve never taught before, offering art painting classes is a great challenge for artists of all levels. You get to meet other artists in your community and help people achieve their goals!
