High School Art Class Visit
This morning I was fortunate to have two art classes from Cranston East High School in RI visit my studio with their teacher Alice Gebhart to learn more about colored pencil because they are using colored pencils in art class. I explained about my process, how I sometimes combine mediums and showed examples of my artwork. I found the students to be very inspiring, they asked so many really good questions that made ME think about my art and my goals and also to remember when I was a student thinking about college and pursuing a career in art. It also made me wonder if I would have enjoyed teaching art in school. I would love to inspire students and help them find direction in art.
