They’re arguing about what game we’re really playing.

Not just the topics but the way how you teach also has to be interesting

 

Conducting an art workshop is not an easy job. It requires a person to be knowledgeable, organized, and efficient. Since art workshops deal with a different topic each time, the workshop conductor should do a deep research on the topics that can be interesting, new, and which will grip the student’s curiosity. Not just the topics but the way how you teach also has to be interesting. The instructor should be able to demonstrate what he or she is teaching in an easy and understandable way which the students can make good use of. If it is a same regular routine, in the next batch one can expect lesser number of students.

Determine what you want your students to learn, weather it is about the principle of art or elements of art for example; patterns, colour, composition, textures, etc or would it be about techniques like wet on dry, wet on wet, edges, techniques of using materials, techniques of using brushes, etc. Since art workshop includes experienced artists as well as beginners, whatever you are planning to teach must be useful for all kinds of students. Experienced artists maybe able to understand even the complicated things you might be teaching but it becomes difficult for freshers or beginners to follow it and understand it.

Arrange all the materials that you are providing to students before the class starts. If you have any handouts organize it properly according to the steps how you are going to teach and staple them together so that it becomes easy to distribute. The aim is to not confuse the students. Everyone should be able to get to the page number you are asking them to get. Art jamming workshop

Some students might take more time to settle down. Request all of them to settle down fast and do not start the class until you have the attention of all the students. If you start before the settle down, later on these students who are not paying attention start asking more doubts interrupting the class and consuming most of the individual time and attention diverted towards them. Introduce yourself and talk a little about yourself and give an idea to the class what and how you are going to take today’s class. Also give chance for each student to introduce themselves and say a few words about themselves.

Simplify the steps and demonstrate the techniques in a step by step fashion which becomes easy to follow. Ask the students to follow each segment as you are demonstrating and encourage questions and try to answer relevant doubts only. When all the students have finished their piece of work, ask the students to put their art work up so that you can speak about each work and also welcome opinions of other students. Do not encourage any negative comments. Dedicate each student some individual time.

Conclude the workshop by reviewing the whole days work and do a quick brush up so that students can retain what they have learnt permanently in their minds.

Art Workshops Melbourne has been conducting art workshops successfully for several years now with new ideas and new techniques for the students to learn.

After the typing is completed, the electronic file is distributed to the other team members

 

People scattered around the world join forces in a virtual workshop to create a project plan. How do you give everyone a feeling of immediate, live participation? How do you keep them engaged? The answer-structure the workshop around three principles: Virtual Team Building 

Visualization of ideas: Elements of the project plan are captured on sticky notes and displayed on a flipchart
Simultaneous participation: All participants generate ideas in real time, as they would in an actual conference room
Rich experience: Regardless of physical location, everyone is active both through audio and visually
The three principles come into play in a virtual workshop leveraging project management best practices, web conferencing with Cisco WebEx, and an innovative software application. As the participants generate ideas for the project plan, they type them into an application shared on their computer screens and print them locally on sticky (3M Post-it) notes. The notes are then pasted on flipcharts, visible to the entire group-both locally and remotely. The project plan takes shape as the group discusses the ideas printed on the notes and moves them around on the flipcharts. The final sequences of notes are scanned into Microsoft Excel or Project, where they are fine-tuned into a coherent project plan. At the conclusion of the workshop, the plan is distributed electronically to all.

Preliminary considerations

The setting

This case study describes a workshop conducted in early 2011 at a division of a major manufacturer of communications and information technology equipment. The purpose of the workshop is to secure broad acceptance of a project plan among a group of thirty project stakeholders dispersed over several locations. The project involves a reorganization of the compensation structure for employees. In order to maximize the active engagement of the stakeholders in developing the plan, the workshop organizers strive to create an atmosphere of face-to-face interaction regardless of whether the stakeholders are local or remote.

Traditional methods

Brainstorming teams have a choice of two popular methods.

Method 1 (local team). The team gathers in a conference room. As the participants come up with ideas, they write them on sticky notes such as Post-its. The notes are pasted on a wall or a flipchart and moved around. Once all the ideas have been submitted and ordered into a plan, one of the participants types up the notes in the correct order from the flipchart into Microsoft Word, Excel, or Project. After the typing is completed, the electronic file is distributed to the other team members.

Sticky notes are a simple and effective visual tool to facilitate the discussion at workshops. However, the final typing is easier said than done. Typing up a few hundred Post-it notes is a strain on the typist’s wrists and eyes. Trying to decipher scribbled notes is as little fun as putting them back in order in case some fall off the flipchart. No wonder it usually takes a while before the entire team can see the results of their collective labor arrive in their electronic inbox.

Another drawback of brainstorming with Post-its is that the procedure can be employed only at one physical location. Team members who dial into the session by phone cannot see the notes. This limits their ability to participate in the discussion. This is why teams that collaborate remotely typically resorts to Method 2.

Method 2 (remote team). Team members join a web conferencing session, for example through WebEx. As they speak out their ideas, a delegated person enters them into Word, Excel or Project. The file is shared, so all can watch the entries accrue. But watching is a passive activity. While waiting for their turn to speak or for the ideas to get typed up, some participants disengage to check their email, get the latest stock quotes, or daydream. With the typist inevitably failing to keep up with the flow of ideas in real time, the meeting progresses slowly and the creative enthusiasm is dampened. This is a far cry from the intuitive Post-it technique, where no one needs to wait for their turn to paste or move a note on a flipchart.

Tooling is an art form that takes time to learn

 

Leather craft is a fascinating hobby and many artists have taken this way beyond carving initials or embossing a logo. Leather craft requires special tools and specific types of leather Leather craft 

Embossing / Stamping / Tooling

An excellent place to shop, learn about leather craft embossing, and gain knowledge on all types of leather craft information is at eLeatherSupply.com you’ll find tools, hardware, leather, kits, and patterns there.

Embossing is art of creating a three-dimensional image onto leather. The only type of leather you want to try this on is vegetable tanned leather, which may be described as “tooling leather”. With leather craft embossing, you do not need extensive training since all that is required are some special tools, embossing plates or wheels, and some basic leather craft knowledge, which can be learned in a class or even on the Internet.

With embossing, pressure is created from underneath the leather item or from on top. For de-bossing, this is when the design is backwards, created from the top side of the leather, which would produce a sunken look on the other side.

The great thing about embossing is that you do not need extensive training or expensive tools to create a remarkable leather craft piece. The most popular method of embossing involves buying an embossing wheel. These wheels do range in size but the one used most often is one-inch wide made of metal. On the metal wheel are various types of designs that protrude, which is what will set the image into the leather.

You can find embossing wheels with every type of design imaginable. There are flowers, animals, scrolling, geometric designs, and so on. These embossing wheels are very inexpensive and easy to find at any craft, hobby, or leather store. Just keep in mind that if you plan to emboss leather on a regular basis, it would be best to buy the better quality wheel.

How To…

This type of leather work involves getting the leather wet so the design of the embossing will dry stiff and stand out more. If you do not have a special embossing wheel, you can use stencils like you would have used in elementary school to trace your initials.

Most hobby stores have a huge selection of stencils to choose from, giving you a good variety. Then, using a hammer made specially for embossing, you would tap out the design in the stencil, producing the embossed design on the other side of the hide.

To give you an idea of what leather craft embossing looks like, if you have ever seen a notary public stamp on an important document such as a marriage license or birth certificate, that raised design is embossed. Keep in mind that the quality of the embossing is dependent on the skill of the person swinging that hammer. The more detailing you see in a piece of embossed leather, the more time and effort it took to achieve it.

Blind-Stamping

This type of stamping is a reference to embossing surfaces that are not colored. On occasion, pigmentation may be added or gold leafing added to enhance the leather craft work.

Stamping

With stamping, a special press is used that looks like a rubber stamp to create the design. Additionally with leather craft stamping, the design is often not three-dimensional but contrasting colors. The results are very nice but do not have the raised effect you get with embossed leather.

Tooling

Tooling is an art form that takes time to learn. This type of leather craft involves hand tools like a chisel and hammer to create intricate designs. Look up our article on “Classes” through the link below for more information on where to find quality training for this amazing style of leather craft.

Ask questions whenever you need to: Many online writing workshop presenters make themselves available through forums, email or chat

 

Learning how to become a more professional writer at a writing workshop not only gives you the freedom to accomplish your writing goals, it helps you earn income by marketing your skill set. Very few online writing workshops tell you how to make money writing online, but there are fewer yet that tie in both aspects of writing and give you the most for your money.   Virtual terrarium workshop Singapore

Let’s explore how most writing workshops operate and determine the best avenue you can find for the money.

Writing Workshop Prices

Writing workshops sometimes cost an arm and a leg. Writers already often fall into the “starving artist” as it is, so pricing the workshops in such a high bracket might seem like a bad idea. But in fact, high prices eliminate the fledgling writers and only take into account the writers that are truly serious about their trade. However, that excludes writers who might be incredibly talented, yet don’t have a month’s pay to put toward their ambitions.

Some workshops, depending on availability and location, charge $400 for a simple workshop about how to write articles. Color me silly, but that seems a bit steep. It would seem to me that such information could be given for a far cheaper price. But then again, that’s just me.

Writing Workshop Schedules

Most writing workshops are broken up into breakout sessions. That means there are five, ten or fifteen sessions going on at a time, and you have to decide which one you want to attend. They might each only appear once or twice throughout the day, so no matter how you work your schedule, you’ll never get to hit all the sessions and hear all the speakers.

That seems unfair, considering that you’ve paid through the nose to attend the workshop, don’t you think? You should be able to attend each breakout session, but since time doesn’t allow that in many cases, the workshop managers have no other choice.

Workshop Material

Do you actually get the full learning experience for your money at most writing workshops? I highly doubt it. For one thing, there’s always going to be some moron who dominates the question and answer session with queries that the speaker already covered in the presentation. Then there’s the technical glitches because the speaker’s PowerPoint slides aren’t working. And of course, so-and-so hasn’t come back from lunch yet, so we can’t start the session.

After all this time is frittered away, there’s precious little material left to cover. And if the question and answer session stops before you get the chance to raise your own concerns, what’s the point?

And of course, there’s the upsells. There’s practically a guarantee that the speaker will spend the last ten minutes of his or her presentation talking about a new book they just published. If they’re not skinning you enough already for the workshop, they’re trying to squeeze your last dollar from your wallet to monetize their latest life story installment.

Are Writing Workshops Really Worthwhile?

Some writing workshops are quite worthwhile as long as the speaker stays on schedule and delivers all the promised material.

But better than attending a workshop in person for a hefty fee, why not opt for an online workshop instead? There are many more benefits to online workshops than offline ones:

1. Watch the workshop on your own schedule: So if you want to get up and go to the bathroom or get a snack, stop the presentation to pick up the kids or go out for the evening, you have the ability to do so.

2. Rewind or fast forward video clips, review material and pick up where you left off with the ebooks – all without any pressure.

3. Pay less than ticket price: Most online writing workshops are videos of live workshops or personalized videos from the speakers themselves. They usually charge far less for an online presentation than a live one.

4. Ask questions whenever you need to: Many online writing workshop presenters make themselves available through forums, email or chat. If that’s the case, you can ask them a question about the workshop or get help through a personal route, rather than in front of a crowd.

5. Learn how to get paid for your writing: Many workshops completely skip over the most important part of a writer’s career – getting paid! And if they don’t, they only suggest getting paid through publishers. But with online writing workshops, you can learn how to get paid using the Internet – and in many ways that won’t cost you money.
