Stephanie Jones Rubiano is a mixed media artist who creates dimensional works within shadow boxes. She uses old photographs and documents, as well as real butterfly wings. Her assemblage techniques have been developed over many years, and she has taught them in live workshops all over the U.S. In the past two years, she has taught online courses, which enable her to reach students from all over the world. I think you’ll enjoy hearing about how her teaching started, how it has evolved, and she’s learned how to create all the technical aspects of an online class.

- Approach gift stores about carrying your artwork.
- Create a proposal for a class and present that to art stores.
- Look into national Art Retreats for teaching opportunities.
- Search online for specific classes that could help you to develop a workshop or online class.
- Don’t forget about email marketing and video production classes when learning to create an online class.
- Utilize other people’s websites to hold some of your online classes for a much broader reach to your audience.
