West AdamsTeacher Orientation

With Love Market & Cafe - Community Room
1969 S. Vermont Ave
Los Angeles US

We want YOU to teach a class through Trade School LA! Any one is welcome to teach a class. Whether you already have a class idea you want to bring to life, or you'd just like to learn more about how our process works, join us for orientation. You'll get a brief history of how TSLA started and why we exist here in LA. We'll cover tips for teachers and show you how to get class scheduled and onto our website. We'll close by discussing your insights and ideas on teaching, sharing class ideas (if you have one already - optional), and hearing questions. This will be about sharing information, having fun and creating connection & camaraderie among our teaching community. Teachers only need to attend orientation once in order to teach in any future semesters. *Accessibility: This orientation will be held in a community room that is up a flight of stairs. The barter items for this class are being donated to The Painted Brain (https://paintedbrain.org/)

Bring one of the following:
paint brushes for acrylic paint
tube of acrylic paint (~8 oz)

About the teacher, Kathie Adams

I really enjoy DIY and have had many years experience of organizing a monthly craft club, where we make new things that interest us. Making jam, books, stamps, paper, soap and felted soap have been annual favorites. I currently work as a psychotherapist and have retired from a career in engineering.
