Teaching Artist Meet Up: Self-Care and Holiday Fun

January and February are often slow times for Teaching Artists, and usually followed by a hectic spring. As we all wrap up the year and head into the holiday season, the Teaching Artist Affairs Committee invites you to join us for some holiday cookie decorating and self-care reflection.
How do you prepare for the coming busy season in the time you have for yourself? How can we help you have more self care tools at your disposal?
