Learn Something New This Fall!

Autumn means a lot of things to a lot of people... but i think for most people, Autumn will always suggest a return to school. (and for some people, the fact that you don't HAVE to go anymore, is pretty exciting!) personally, i miss college; i like deadlines and pressue, but i also like feedback and support. And i just plain like learning!
(i'm a total dweeb now, right? i'm all "rah rah, learning!".

seriously though, why should kids get all the fun of school?
and besides, school can be really awesome if you're learning something you REALLY WANT to know.

lucky for you, there are a lot of opportunities for the entire family to pick up some new talents or brush up on old skills... and possibly EVEN luckier, i will be the one teaching you!

(look how fun my notes are!)

this fall, you can catch me at School 33 Art Center & MICA (the Maryland Institute College of Art), teaching four different courses. And if you live in Baltimore (or the surrounding areas), you should really think about taking a class or two at either of these institutions. This fall alone, you could learn printmaking, painting, mosaic & found object sculpture and more. Now, if you're looking to learn how to draw, or someone to soak up all your kids' creative energies and run with them... well, that's where i come in.

For the kids, check out the whole range of Continuing Studies courses available to students (K-12), through the Young People's Studio Program.
I'll be teaching two classes for YPS this fall---
Real & Fanciful Landscapes
Saturday 1:00 PM - 3:30 PM
September 13 to November 22, 2008
Grades 3-5.


Tell a Story, Draw a Story
Saturday 9:30 AM - 12:00 PM
September 13 to November 22, 2008
Grades 2-4.

And for the "bigger kids" (that's you Adults), head over to School 33 for
BEGINNING AND CONTINUING DRAWING for adults & young adults which will be offered at two different times & days, so you can pick the one that best suits your workweek!
Wednesday, Sept 17 – Nov 5, 6:30-9:30PM or
Friday, Sept 19-Nov 7, 10AM – 1PM

Learn to draw in eight weeks! Even if you’ve never picked up a pencil before, you’ll walk away with new skills & drawings you can be proud of. Individual instruction & student centered lessons make this the perfect class for the beginner AND the more experienced artist.

I'm always amazed at the quality of work people produce (especially because i find the adults much more stubborn and self-effacing than the kids ever are, and LO! look how beautiful the final products are!)

If you're ever thought "i wish i could do that", now's the time to act on it. I am a very patient teacher and as you know, my ambition, above all else, is to bring art into everyone's life... let me teach you!! You can register online &/or get more information at both the School 33 & MICA websites. Don't wait a second longer--- classes are filling fast and start SOON!!

Look forward to seeing you local folks all covered in ink & charcoal and having epiphanies about composition right before my very eyes. Plus--- i let you make fun messes like this one:
