4 Things I Learned This Week Selling at an Education Conference and Climbing a Mountain in Colorado.
I love Colorado! Within a week I got to hike up to some beautiful high peaks and then go to an Education Conference in Denver where I got to share my Art History Timeline.
These are a few things I learned:
1. Not everyone is as excited or as interested about Art and History as I am.
Same goes with hiking and climbing. What?! But I found that enthusiasm is contagious.
2. I found three groups of people who loved The Art History Timeline; 1. Classical Educators, 2. people who have some background in Art, and, of course, 3. History Buffs. Guess that didn't take a rocket scientist to figure that out.
As for people who love hiking and climbing they usually have three similar qualities; 1. someone who is energized by being outdoors 2. since a lot of mountaineering challenges are mental, someone who thinks they can do it, can and 3. someone who loves a bit of adventure.
3. At the conference, a bowl of mini chocolate bars on the table has amazing magnetic qualities.
Sharing a mini Snickers on the summit with other climbers makes them your instant friends.
4. I felt honored that someone would want to have my Art History Timeline, something I worked on for over 1000 hours, in their home, studio, or classroom. And they'd find it useful and beautiful.
“Art flourishes where there is a sense of adventure.”
