FAQs
How do you teach art virtually?
First, you will want to get clear about what exactly you’re teaching and who you’re teaching to. Get really specific about the type of art you want to teach and tailor it to a niche of students, for instance acrylic pouring, foundations of oil painting, or watercolor techniques. To teach virtually, you will need to create some form of content—generally videos and supplemental materials, such as worksheets, presentations, etc. for your students. When creating content, it’s a good idea to consider the logistics of your online class such as filming in a place with good lighting, promoting it on social media, etc.
With Teachable’s powerful yet easy to use platform, you can easily upload your content and customize your web page. You also have the freedom to create your sales page, collect payments from students, schedule coaching sessions, and teach art online your way.
