Published my 2nd class Rough Sketches as a Finished Product!!!  Yay!!!

I have really enjoyed taking a business and watercolor class on Skillshare and I think it's a great value for all of the learning involved.  I have always loved to teach and train, so I was excited to publish my first Skillshare class.  My friends and family were so proud.  ; )  

I have never done videos or produced music so it was all a learning experience for me.  I really got a lot out of this class to help me along the way as well as the DIY Filming class by Mark Cersosimo and the photography class by Marshall Rimmer.  I couldn't have done my video without them.

Then I started on my Intro which was the hardest to nail.  I really had to figure out what my message was.  I wanted it to be a relavant story about who I was and why I'm teaching, including my skills and experience.  As an artist, I wanted it to be a beautiful presentation, and I am my worst critic.  So it was a grueling process for me.

Because my intro was so involved, I started to film my instructional videos as I worked on it.  I'm so glad I did because it kept my project moving.  It took me a while to break down my process and simplify it in basic terms.  I had to do my first video a couple of times but then I was off and running.

After finally finishing my Intro video, I ended up with 8 videos all under 7 minutes.  After some help from the Skillshare team, and a half a day of uploading, I'm super happy with how the class turned out.  I am now working on learning how to manage my students and keep improving my class.  Already thinking about how to put together my next class!  : )
