028: Julie Talks Teaching

I’m delighted to bring you another episode of the Adventures in Arting Podcast!  Today we have no guest.  Or rather, I’m the guest!  My Mom thought that it would be a good idea to chat about teaching in-person classes.  Here’s a recent photo of me teaching:

On the podcast Mom and I discuss my philosophy on teaching classes, taking classes, and what I hope students walk away from class with.  I hope you’ll give the podcast a listen and let me know what you think!
