This month our students will be focusing on drawing with a variety of mediums. So far we have focused on charcoal, graphite, and this week we will be using ink. We have drawn hands, horses, and even bears with silly hats. I'm not sure but I have a feeling we will be painting next month. I cannot wait to see what Mary has planned for next month.
Wow. We have had such a busy crazy wonderful and sometimes difficult holiday season. I have negleted to update this site since Thanksgiving. I apologize for that and hope to do a little better this year. We are looking forward to kicking off a new year with our students who have been with us and hopefully picking up a few new artist along the way. We will be focusing on drawing this month. Mary and I are both looking forward to it. Our students always blow us a way. We feel this focus allows them not only to learn a lot but let their skills shine. We look forward to seeing everyone this week because we have really missed you guys!

We have had a great and sometimes challenging time this month with our printmaking lessons. This is something most young artist may not have a chance to do until high school or even college. I am very proud of our students and Mary for hanging in there and making some great art even when things got tough. Next month we wiil be doing clay and sculpture and then jumping right into drawing the first of the year. We will not be having regular classes next week but we will be in the studio for camps on Monday and Tuesday!
