Summer class roundup!

My summer Evening Basic Drawing class at the St. Louis Artist’s Guild has recently wrapped up, so I thought I’d share some images of my amazing students’ work!

The first few drawings of teacups are from the first class, before instruction began, then pictures of a few of the classes, and finally, the drawings from the final project of the last class.  So proud of everyone’s progress!

End of 2016 Wrap Up

2016 was a wonderful year for me artistically, as I began to teach at the St. Louis Artists’ Guild, in addition to creating, showing, and selling artwork.  I’ve written about my summer class previously, but I didn’t get the chance to write about my Fall Evening Basic Drawing class yet.

Fall, being a super busy time for many people, had a much smaller class enrollment.  While a little unusual at first, ultimately, it led to a really one on one, personal connection between my students and I.  We had lots of great conversations about life and art while they were working on their drawing projects, and I was very pleased to see how much they had learned and grown in confidence by the end of the session.  Here are just a couple of photos of the lovely work that my students did during class:

I will be teaching Evening Basic Drawing again during the Winter/Spring session, running for 8 weeks on Thursday night from February 8 through March 30, 6 to 8:30 pm.  There’s still plenty of time to sign up if you’re interested in joining in the fun, so be sure to sign up through the St. Louis Artists’ Guild website:  http://www.stlouisartistsguild.org/new/node/2461.  I believe you can sign up all the way through the first night of class.  The fees and supply list are included on the class webpage.  Hope to see you there!
