Several of you are probably familier with my "Adventures in Drawing" series so
you probably already know my style. I really like turning kids on to drawing,
no matter what the style. I get a lot of "first timers" in art just because
it's convienent to "stick" them there and I try to "hook" them all into Art.
I spend a lot of class time on "creativity". I relate being a visual artist
to a composer, that just about anyone, with patience and hard work, can learn
to play the piano, playing music that others have written, but a composer can
sit at a piano with no music at all and create something completely new. But,
you need to learn to play the piano first.
Above my blackboard is the phrase "A photograph shows you what something
really is. A work of Art however, shows you how the Artist FEELS about what it
