Length: 60-90 minutes

Teaching mixed-media is similar to creating mixed media or any art – you use your skills and talent to combine many things into a balanced and cohesive whole. This webinar will give you the tools and insight you need to engage participants create a classroom experience as successful as the art you create. You’ll hear things you may know and discover things you never thought of!

The goal of this web seminar is to help you combine your art skills, knowledge, personality, and style into classes that your students will love, recommend, and want more of. Successful teaching is not just about sharing the how-to. The art of teaching includes a myriad of behind-the-scenes actions, that, if done well, a student is never even aware of – they just know they are happy and learning what they came to learn.

Lesley has been teaching mixed media art classes for over 17 years, from Artfest to Australia, local shops to international events and now online. She will share her personal stories (such as arriving to set up an hour before class only to find her classroom had no tables or chairs) and her insight and wisdom from years of ‘in the trenches’ experience.


  • The one most important (but often overlooked skill) you need to have to be a successful mixed media teacher
  • Your two most necessary outside-the-classroom actions
  • The Eight Ps (plus a couple of Cs) of mixed media teaching
  • How to get started if you’ve never taught
  • Important lessons Lesley learned the hard way
  • pros & cons checklist to help you make the decision to teach
