Submitting to the Gallery Info.:

:bulletred:How do I submit my masks to the Group/appropriate Gallery folder...?


:bulletgreen:Thankfully it's quite simple, first you have to Join the Group, then go into your own Gallery and select the mask you want to submit, on the right hand side of your screen there will be a section (in bold text) that says, "Featured in:" and underneath that there is a + sign with "submit to a Group" next to it. Click on the + sign and a list of the Groups you're a member of will show up in a box, click the Group you want and hit the Submit button.
:bulletpurple:Now, this part is where you choose which Gallery folder to submit your particular mask into.
-Once you've hit the Submit button, a 2nd choice will appear which says, "Submit to the following folder:" and there will be a drop-down box that you can click on. "Featured" is the first choice that will pop up as it is a default folder, but scroll down past that and you'll see a variety of choices from leather to metal to clay, etc. Please select the material that fits best with what your mask is made of. There is also a choice for Mixed-Media, one for Tutorials, and one for those who want to show off their mask-displays and art-booths from Shows they've sold at.
-Each folder has a short description as to what it is for, some currently have a little more info. than others.

:bulletred: IF you do not submit to the appropriate Gallery folder and choose instead to just submit to the "Featured" folder, I will deny your submission and ask that you try again.


Thank you,
Sphinx -Group Admin.

I've recently had someone ask me to teach a class on how to make masks. I've never before taught a class on 'anything'...so I'm a bit lost right now.

On one hand I like the idea of teaching, sharing my knowledge and experience, and teaching others to possibly improve their own art or just being able be a part of someone expressing their individuality through art.
But, on the other hand...there is the fear of having someone copy my work or even possibly losing future sales due to teaching someone how to make the mask themself. As bad as that sounds...   I think that as an artist, not to say all -but at least some, we have this innate need/desire to horde our knowledge rather than share it and possibly see someone else's work surpass our own.  

With all of that said, I'm going to over-come my desire/need to horde my knowledge, and I think I'm going to teach this class.
-But, having never taught a class before, I'm now faced with various issues such as...well, where do I start? Obviously I should start with something simple and basic, but I don't want my students to feel jipped...I want them to walk away feeling like they learned something pretty interesting that they can add onto and do more with, something that was worth their time and money in taking the class.
-so in that, where do I start? What kind of mask do I have them make?

And then I'm looking at money...how much should I charge as my fee? I'm going to make up a list of materials that they need to buy for this class.
(The unfortunate thing is that the only craft store in town only ever seems to keep in stock up to 3 or 4 tubs of the clay I use...so we'll either have to look into a bulk order or put in a bulk-order online)


Anyone in here ever taught a mask-making (or any kind of hands-on art) class before?
-What are some tips on how to start? General themes/designs to stick with.
Should I have a design in mind and everyone make that, or just help them through the making of the base and then let them do their own thing?

What should I look at for fees? Since they are going to be buying their own supplies...but I'm looking at doing a two-day class at about 2hrs. each. Not sure if I'll be trying to rent a classroom somewhere or if this will be held in someone's home...

Thank you so much!!!:)
