If I could earn a living doing what I love most it would be teaching arts and crafts. Using all different types of media to create little works of art such as jewelry, greeting cards, and scrapbooks relaxes me and gives me great pleasure. Teaching others how to create their own works of art would change the world one person at a time by giving them a sense of accomplishment and the results of their efforts would bring joy to others. I would open a studio to provide people space and supplies to create and learn. Instructors would be available for a small fee to teach others new techniques, such as how to make beads out of recycled paper for jewelry, or how to paint pottery. I have discovered that many women enjoy gathering to create things, not just to create, but to form relationships with each other. This nurturing atmosphere would most definitely carry over back to her family at home, making her family happy as well. Children also enjoy learning how to create art they can share with their friends and family and doing so fosters a sense of pride within them. To know that I may have played a small part in all of this by teaching others, and to get paid for it, would truly be something I would love to do.
