About this project

Create and publish  two books and a syllabus so I can teach others to teach Pocket Sketching in their classes, licensing them as “Teachers of Pocket Sketching”. My project goal is to finance the writing, layout, editing, printing of the books, ”The Pocket Sketching Workbook”, “Pocket Sketching, the Portable Workbook”, and “The Pocket Sketching Syllabus for Teachers”, plus the legal contract for licensing and the fulfillment of donor gifts.

 My goal is to have the first teacher-training workshop in May and I already have four enrollments (maximum 7per training). This, and future teacher workshops will be taught here in Tucson.  Additional material will be available to licensed instructors as it is developed. Each 'teacher' will receive one-on-one instruction, the Syllabus, Books, DVDs, access to all supplies, and appropriate business training. They will leave with the experience and materials they need to teach Pocket Sketching in their classes.

After nine years of teaching totally successful Pocket Sketching workshops nationally, I am aware of tremendous demand for this easy-to-learn, clean, portable, compact, inexpensive technique which I invented and trademarked.  There are thousands of teachers of art who could include this technique in their classes.  There's only one of me, and I want thousands to have the creative fun of Pocket Sketching.  Instead of setting up workshops at a distance and driving all over the country to teach them, I need to teach the teachers efficiently here.

Risks and challenges

Time is the only challenge. Because I make my living by teaching workshops on the road, I have hired an assistant to book workshops after June so I can devote my time to the books and syllabus. I live on short, intense projects with deadlines. (Have done commercial real estate very successfully.) I'm a presenter at the National Plein Air Convention and Expo in San Diego late April: the Pocket Sketching Portable Workbook must be ready for sale then. The Syllabus must be ready by May 17. We 'hit the road' in June: the "fancy book" must be done, at fullfillment and in our hands before we leave. All three books share material, yielding some efficiency. Sudden death could be a risk!
