Art Courses, Alternative for The Leisure Time

Updated on May 21, 2009

Leisure time have many benefits. Beside for the hobby can also become a business. To increase our knowledge we can take a course. We can improve our ability with doing our hobby. It sound interesting, and nice to try .

Pottery courses. You like the pottery goods . You can try pottery courses. You can make pottery with a variety of forms. Like mug, bowls, plates, table decoration an many objects we can create it . There are several techniques to create some kind of pottery, such as press, row, plate. Remember “Ghost film”, such as this course . Many items that we already produce we can sell. The first we can sell to close friends, relatives, business relations, finally we can have a pottery shop.

Handicraft courses. Have you aver seen “egg craft” or “patchman craft” (three dimention picture). These handicraft very unique and beautiful. Although a little bit complex to made it. But all this can be guaranteed and you will be impressed with your own work. Beside two types of hanycraft. We can try to learn paper tole (decoration from paper). But it costs a little bit expensive. And we can sell it to our friend, family, even we can sell it online .Trust me.

Cooking courses. You want to be able to cook like Rachael Ray. Of course you do. You can cook in a flash wiz. Actually, cooking is not difficult. You can try the recipes from the book or magazine. But with a cooking course we can practice directly. We can ask directly to our mentor. In a short time you can cook your favorite dish.

Painting courses. Painting is kind of art that can liberate us from the stress. Learning to painting is also not difficult. The important thing is we have to know the media that can we use to paint. Such as oil paint, watercolor, or acrylic. We can sell our painting, to everyone who interesting with our painting

Flower string courses. If you romantic person. Always reveal a sense of sympathy with flowers. Better if we string flower by ourselves. Flower string is kind of art that easily learned. This course is suitable for girls and Moms. In the future we can make a florist shop, if we are expert in string flower.
