Day three.. where to start?
I did not manage to do the Texture exercises that were planned for today. It was too overwhelming to have 18 students attending, and more than half of which did not attend the first two sessions, which resulted into me repeating the exercises from yesterday’s session. Almost 7 students ended up being bored for they have completely finished the exercise in 30 minutes. That was bad, totally unexpected. I did not know how to deal with it differently. My attempt at explaining colors for the second time was even worse than the first time, which was funny. Haha!
I have gotten feedback from a few good students on what they would like to explore more if possible and I plan on giving it a go this Thursday or next week.
I don’t think i’ll be asking to run any other workshops for a looong time after this one. Yes, it’s my first but I’m already burnt. Too much thinking, too much responsibility.
Mayed tells me it’s alright, i’ll always come up with something to make it work. Law says i’ll get used it, it’ll get easier. Nobody tells me it’s gonna get BETTER.
I am being a baby, but the truth is: I’m enjoying it. It’s a new experience, and i am learning a lot from my mistakes.
- Number of students
- Duration of the session: Too long?
- Keeping the students interested
