Teach Something!
Entries should include a finished beginner’s piece,
step by step written instructions, a list of materials
needed, and brief historic documentation for your art and
piece.  We all have skills to share and it is a large part of
what we do in this hobby.  There are many of you out
there who are too shy to teach a class, but you can put
something in writing that someone can follow and learn from.
Looking forward to learning from all of your entries!
