Drawing lessons. When I teach, I love to draw. To keep myself from taking over a student’s drawing, I set up an easel to draw on. The drawing are quick, may be 5 to 10 minutes, Teaching teaches the teacher.
The last day of a month that flew by.
I love to draw. I wish I had some deep thought to share but, I don’t. I am trying to stay focused and remember who I am. I have never been anything but an artist and teacher. It would have been good to be a wife and mother but alas, it did not happen.
Back to the easal where I belong. Good or bad, its all I have.
working on taxes, got freaked out so I decided to go through drawings from the last 3 months instead. All were done while teaching.
When I was a student I had a great teacher named Ira Mateson. He taught me how to draw and sculpt the figure, there were other teachers but his words were the ones I could hear and understand. But when he drew on my work I could not retrieve it. It was lost to Ira’s hand and no longer mine. When I teach figure drawing, I keep an easel ready. When I feel the need to take over a students work, I go to my place and draw. These are 5 to 1o minutes as then I can return to the students and not take over. The drawing of Danny maybe a bit longer but not much.
Today I have been thinking of animation. This week the new supplies arrive to start the project.
I want to do everything, can I. Blowglass, draw, paint, sculpture, animate. Wish I had more time
