I'm Marjie Kemper, a New York-based artist, instructor, and solopreneur.
I've been teaching live and online for seven years. I've taught in small independently owned shops and in large retail stores, at major tradeshows and conferences, and at intimate week-long art retreats.
I'm also an instructor with Craftsy.com (now BluPrint) and have over 5,000 students in my course on that platform.
I can't wait to share my experience with you and help you get started!
Imagine teaching YOUR passion to students all around the country, and the world.
As a teacher, you'll have the opportunity to:
Teaching Your Passion™ is for you if...
On the other hand...
Teaching Your Passion™ is NOT for you if...
Since you made it this far, I am assuming the latter isn't true. You just need some help from someone who's done it before. I've got your back and I'll be happy to share all I know about teaching both live and online.
"Marjie has inspired me to go forward with teaching. I have not been so motivated in several years! This class was full of information, and process. I learned what I need and what can be shelved. The class was incredible and for once I feel empowered. I wish I could bring Marjie home to live in my studio."
- Mary Ellen Maney
"Taking this class is a must if you plan on teaching your craft. Marjie gives you the best instructions. She really helps you put everything into perspective. Instructional materials are awesome! This class went above and beyond my expectations."
- Angela Huggins

"I really enjoyed this wonderful course! Marjie’s manner is upbeat, encouraging, supportive, and inclusive. I benefited from her vast experience. The interaction with Marjie and other students allowed us to share what had worked for us and what we needed help with. And Marjie was able to answer our specific questions and share ideas related to our fields of interest, which will, I am sure, make our teaching better. She made new techniques seem easy, something very valuable to me! The course comes with lots of helpful hints, tips and checklists, so after the class is over there is a wonderful body of PDFs to refer back to."
- Marilee McKelvey
"There is so much good information presented in an easy format that will help you think about presenting yourself in a professional manner. Perhaps that best part of the course is Marjie’s dedication, her availability is great! She is in touch; live, reacting to posts, comments and questions all the time. I found the course to be highly informative and inspiring and I enjoyed seeing how she has put strategies in action over time.
Marjie’s thoroughness in creating step by step lesson plans will bring your attention to many details that together create a complete professional experience for your students. The course is an excellent tool that will help you work through details of creating an online presence, creating courses and then contacting venues and building your online presence."

"I have successfully and with less stress taught my first 3-hour live class, all thanks to Marjie Kemper's Teaching Your Passion™ course!
Marjie has thought of everything in this very extensive and thorough class. She's broken everything down to bite-size nuggets of knowledge so you never feel overwhelmed."
- Carole Monahan
"I would highly recommend this in-depth course to anyone considering getting into teaching in the creative industry. All aspects of teaching are covered in this easy to follow course.
Even if you are a seasoned teacher like myself, there were so many tips and angles to approach situations I was happy to learn and add to my war chest of knowledge.
I have been virtually creating alongside my good friend Marjie for years and jumped at the chance to learn from her extensive knowledge she shares."
- Nicole Wright
"Marjie simplified social media and how to use all the various platforms easily. This class gave me the tools I need to grow my art instruction business quickly and easily."
- Karlene Schoonover
"Having a business class designed for artists is amazing. This might be the most helpful class I have ever taken. I see a use for everything Marjie has given us."
- Annette Ballard
"I really enjoyed this class! Marjie’s honesty really spoke to me. There were so many social media tips. I can teach online and not be a ‘social’ butterfly. Online is the way to go for me along with a bit of local teaching."
- Linda Naprstek

How long will I have access to the class? You'll have lifetime access.
Do I have to tune in at a specific time, or can I work at my own pace? You can work at your own pace. You will always have access to the materials and can revisit them whenever you like.
Can I download the videos? Yes! They are yours to watch anyway you like.
I have another question. How can I reach you? Email me with TYP in the subject line.
I extend a KIVA loan to a female entrepreneur for every class Teaching Your Passion™ purchased. KIVA is one of my favorite charities.
So far we have supported multiple female entrepreneurs in Cambodia, El Salvador, Haiti, Samoa, USA, and Vietnam!
KIVA a 501(c)3 U.S. nonprofit that manages small loans in the amount of $25 and up. The entire amount of the loan goes to the intended recipient. They cover operating costs through optional donations, separate from the loans.
After the loans are repaid (they have a nearly 97% repayment rate!) the hope is that you will loan the amount again, to another individual or group.
P.S. Thanks for making it this far! I hope we can work together to help you launch or expand your teaching career.
