professional qualities of my dream job

I should first say that teaching in a classroom is a job that offers many rewards and helps me expand on my knowledge of art. But I would say that my dream job would be to run an open studio that would have spaces that people could rent out for their own use. We would all share the basic equipment and have an art community within. I would like to offer classes to students and adults to come and learn about things that they may not be able to learn in a regular classroom such as papermaking, jewelry making and graphic novels. I sometimes feel in a regular classroom theirs to many restrictions to what students can learn. This would be a place to learn and explore with the materials.

That being said some of the professional qualities, I would like in my dream job would be to have a great relationship with others in my studio and others in my community. Interaction with the group and outside within the community would need to be

I like to always be prepared for every lesson well before the lesson starts. I feel like I don’t get the respect from the classroom if I’m not prepared with all the materials for the lesson. This also applies to working in the studio, making sure that everything is in working condition, bills being paid and working with other artist. Its important to be honest and dependable working with others.

Communication is also an important part of this job. I want a community where everyone is open and encouraging when commenting on others work. I would like to get to know the people that I’m working with on a professional manner but also in a way that they feel like they can trust and depend on me for support if needed. I would always be compassionate and empathetic when responding to concerns and feelings. I will always be encouraging others do step a little further in their work. I think that flexibility is important when working on a project. I don’t like to have due dates, I feel that this limits you on your creativity. I would like to work with people to feel like they can work on an assignment till they feel that their done.
