When Arianne Hemlein became a single mom nine years ago, she knew she would need a flexible job to help support and take care of her two children.
Hemlein began teaching art classes about a year ago, something she found she really enjoyed.
"I found I really appreciated being able to share my artistic skills and get people to explore their own creativity," she tells me. "It was very rewarding to teach classes. I decided I wanted to pursue that."
She has regular events at the Chef's Palette and Ruckus Pizza in Cary and The Wake Zone Espresso in Apex. And in Sanford, she meets once a month at the Steele Street Cafe. She also books private parties and team building events.
Her goal is to reach people who don't think they are artistic.
"At some point, people decide they are an artist or they aren't an artist. I don't buy into that," she tells me. "They are all artists."
