I’m so excited to share my first podcast interview with Patty Palmer of Deep Space Sparkle, a long time blogger / art teacher colleague of mine. I finally had a chance to meet her in person this January, when I participated in the California Kindergarten Association Convention in Santa Clara. She was happy to learn about my after school art program as she is often asked about how to start one. I am only too happy to share my collected info from six years of experience. I’ve grown from an initial program with about 30 kids a week, to an average of 160 students a week. To be honest, it’s a lot of work, but it has helped to put in a financial position that I always thought was out of reach for myself and my family. Follow the link below to listen to my interview, and then download a detailed PDF file that includes specifics about how I run my program.
