GirlGeeks: Our girls at work

It is amazing to see two teen girls work together to brainstorm and plan their business venture. Nadia and Anu joined forces to create unique art enrichment classes. Nadia and Anu have very different backgrounds in visual art, so they are also learning new skills from each other in the process. Nadia’s interest in visual art led her to explore Architectural Engineering and Design, while Anu has taken a strong interest in Anime art and developing animated characters for stories.

As the girl’s mentor, my goal is to show the them how to start a micro-business from the beginning stages. It is very challenging for teenagers to take on such a task, but Anu and Nadia are embracing every minute of the experience. During the first two weeks after training and orientation, they have accomplished so much, including developing their own curriculum for art classes.

Other milestones:

  • Launched Facebook fan page
  • Acquired over 100 followers on Instagram
  • Created flyers in Photoshop
  • Developed a marketing plan
  • Held a mock training class
  • Created a schedule for classes
  • Created registration forms in Google Docs

Artshops by Nadia and Anu will kick off next week at Smyrna Community Center in Smyrna, Georgia on July 8, 2013. See full details on Eventbrite. Register your son or daughter today!

What’s next? The girls plan to take their classes to daycare centers, youth organizations, and schools to offer Artshops on site. Please contact Natina if you’re interested in learning more about how GirlGeeks can bring fun, engaging and unique art enrichment to your kids.
