When it comes to art there isn't a right way to do it. I am learning lithography and its a lot harder then I had previously thought but I have figured out a few ways to make it easier on myself and my art still turns out how I want it

At the beginning of the semester I can up with a list of things that are important to me in terms of my teaching. Through the semester I have grown a lot in my confidence and knowledge of teaching.

If I don't demonstrate my confident to my students they wont make the connection that artists need to be confident.
