    Take a look at "iPad art". This is one link: iPad Art Room

    You can master it sitting in your home. Needs only an iPad and some apps, most free (I think, not sure). When you get reasonably good at it, you can start sharing it with people of all ages, not just kids.

    Research the various options within iPad art, pick a few and get good at 2-3 of them. While you research, note down key words, descriptions and bookmark the links. Create a portfolio of your work, including pictures taken during a creation, and also your initial disasters. : )

    When you are ready to share it with others, for free or for a fee, add some attractive options like claymation and 3D somethings. Create a simple one page website (preferably a scrolling page). If you charge, don't go too low. For children below some age, make it 'accompanied by parent.' Don't forget the senior citizens. Have a line like "Our youngest students are under 6 and oldest over 66. Art knows no age' : )

    Become good at a few drawings or art works. Initially stick to offering only these. Guiding each person on a totally different kind of work will be tough.

    People will bring their own iPads. Keep the seating eclectic, esoteric or some other e-word : ) floor seating with cushions and 'arty' feel. Happy but not intrusive instrumental music (from an iPad not being used for art work) : )

    It can be expanded to providing it in schools, community centers, 1-day workshops, library, senior living centers, and many other places.

    You can also offer online lessons. I saw some online classes for Tanjore painting!

    Good Luck.

    guess what girls? I had samosas today after a weekend food talk & huge craving! Was super tired, still made them ..Dh relished them! He asked me "What are you making today?" I said "samosa".. He asked "samosa?' with a surprise as I haven't; made it in a long,long time after our new healthy diet regime... I said " ya,because we were discussing on ILs and I can't stop craving it now!" He's like "nice, wah" .. I am sure in his head he must be thinking, whatever, samosa mil raha hai na!!:tonguewink::tonguewink:
