Welcome to the Art of Clowning

Hello,

I wanted to take a quick opportunity to share with you a little bit about my journey into this world I call clowning.

When I decided to become a clown I never truly dreamed I would be doing it 12 years later. You see, I became a clown as part of a ministry at my church. As, it turned out we didn't do much with it there, but it opened a whole new world for me.


Since beginning this journey I have gone to trainings and conventions in at least 10 differnt states and 2 countries. I have won awards in makeup/costume and in various other things such as skit performances. I have clowned in schools for drug awareness, churches, and prisons. And I been in parades, and peformed on stages all over the place. Plus, I have made some lifelong friends along the way. 


I've learned new skills which I can use to make people smile as I offer those in volunteering, and I have also taken these same skills and made a business out of it. At first my "business" started as an effort to support my volunteerism, however the more comfortable I got with my skills the more I started getting work. I haven't made this a full time career, though there are many people who do. For me this work of love is something I do because I find joy in it.


I will say, that this skill has served my son well also. He started clowning with me when he was 10 years old. Today at the age of 22 and as a full time student, this is what he does for extra income. In one to two parties a month, he can make as much as his friends who have to work a lot of hours, while trying to juggle being a full time student.


Why am I sharing this with you? If you have any interest in becoming a children's entertainer, I will be offering a 9 week clown school beginning on March 19, 2018. The great thing about clown school is you can take the skills you learn and use them as a clown or as a character, or as a balloon twister, puppeteer, facepainter, storyteller, the list goes on.


If you are at all interested in becoming a clown/children's entertainer. Consider signing up today. I have spots for 8 students, as I do try to keep the classes small.

Until next time,
