An hour and a half art gathering at the store. One of monthly gatherings. I made $70 for 10 people. Hmmm. What I did right: I researched my subject, made demo tiles that showed a variety of techniques. I spent a lot of time setting up, so that participants had what they needed. I gave them variety. I tried to model the DIA approach, give what is necessary and let them go to town. It lasted for the proper amount of time. I let eveyone introduce themselves with descriptive adjective. Wrong: my teaching style is too succinct. People need MORE.
