Recently I’ve been thinking about other opportunities I could create for myself that would allow me to broaden my teaching. Currently, my teaching is focused on my classes at RISD and through writing my “Ask the Art Professor” column for the Huffington Post. I enjoy both, but lately I have been feeling an itch to somehow expand beyond those two veins of teaching.
In graduate school, I once helped a friend with some sculpture techniques, and she joked “you should have your own cooking show!” From what I’ve seen online, it seems like there is a huge audience that is starving for tutorials in art. In some ways, I’m thinking of taking my friend’s suggestion literally: a “cooking” show for artists. This is totally pie in the sky, but I figure that it doesn’t hurt to think about it, and we all have to start somewhere. I like that this is percolating in my head right now, and that something new is stirring in me.
