THE TEACHING ARTIST

I'M AN ARTIST AND AN ART TEACHER.    I WILL SHARE MY ARTWORK ON THIS BLOG AS WELL AS ANECDOTES OF MY 17 YEARS OF TEACHING KIDS.  DRAWING WAS ALWAYS A PART OF MY LIFE FOR AS LONG AS I CAN REMEMBER.  I LEARNED TO DRAW OBJECTS WELL, AND I APPRECIATED GOOD DRAFTING AND REALISTIC REPRESENTATION.  I TEACH PEOPLE HOW TO DRAW NOT HOW TO MAKE MASKS OUT OF FEATHERS AND GLITTER.  TEACHING OTHERS TO "DRAW WHAT THEY SEE" HAS HELPED ME HONE MY OWN DRAWING SKILLS.  IT SOMETIMES TAKES US ARTISTS A WHILE TO CALL OURSELVES "ARTISTS", BUT OVER TIME, I'VE BECOME COMFORTABLE LABELING MYSELF AS SUCH, WHICH FEELS WONDERFUL.  I'M PROUD OF THIS GIFT AND FOR THE ABILITY TO TEACH THAT SKILL TO OTHERS.
