The art of teaching!

July and August are busy teaching months for us.
In the studio, we are busy with a very small group of very talented young artists.
Each Monday we visit a local museum, and the rest of the week they set to task creating their own masterpiece.

This week, we visited the NGA to see Impressionist pieces from the Chester Dale collection.
In the studio our students work with pencils, chalk pastels, oil pastels and finally acrylic on canvas.

Our youngest student is 6 years old.

At the end of the week, we transform our studio into a mini gallery for our participants, they and their parents are always so proud...it is a great feeling to know we made an impact on the life of a young artist!

Teaching is not a lost art, but the regard for it is a lost tradition.
