Trying new things

It’s always good to step out of your comfort zone and try new things. Pastel is my chosen medium for many reasons, and it’s especially my favorite medium to teach fine art with because it is so forgiving and hardy at the same time, not to mention the exquisitely rich pigments. You can manipulate it easier, layer, fix mistakes and make adjustments. Of this we are absolutely certain: Every piece can’t be a masterpiece, and we learn more from our mistakes than we do from our successes – which is why we experiment often.

It’s not the product; it’s the process. It’s in the doing where the magic happens, and we learn so much more when we’re open to change. We’ll be painting with acrylics again this week. Enjoy these landscape perspective paintings, and scroll down for the class schedule.

FEBRUARY VACATION WEEK – No regular classes, but I am open to doing vacation art if there’s interest, so let me know, and I’ll see if we can arrange it.
NOTE: Every other kids resume as if the vacation week didn’t exist.


STAYING SAFE AT THE TOP
We continue to operate cautiously. We wear masks, and sanitize hands upon entering the studio. We assume we all may have it, and protect the people around us by maintaining safe distance.  We wash our hands and the things we touch often. We keep the studio well-ventilated, and sanitize areas and materials as they get handled.  If someone doesn’t feel well or may have been exposed, please stay home.
