Hmmm, can I come up with valid excuse for not posting for two months (I really hadn’t realized it was that long!), well, probably not, but there has certainly been a lot going on around here. On Monday I will be teaching my first after school art class as my own boss, yes I am officially self employed! After some last minute issues with having to change location and consequently a delay in any advertising, I have enough students to run primary school age classes this term and I will be expanding into preschool classes next term also.
I am very excited about it all, and finally I can spend the time I want to on planning and preparing for art classes without feeling like it makes the whole thing financially unviable and now I am the first to know what is happening rather than the last. I have some really fun projects planned for this term and have been able to divide the age groups rather than having to cater for 5-12 year olds in one class!
Ella has been showing interest in art in the last month or so and has decided she would like to do classes as well. She has previously been interested only in the occasional one session holiday programme so I am happy that she will be coming along and I will get more pictures to hang on our new art wall in the recently painted hallway.
There has also been Ella’s sixth birthday (a breakfast pancake party) and Easter of course. So after this week, I am hoping things will quieten down, but then there is holiday programmes to think of, next terms classes to plan for, advertising to organise, sooo many things to make and sew, Phoebe starting Montessori, PTA meetings, gymnastics, jazz classes……………the list seems neverending!
