I'm so excited to announce that one of my classes at Pushing Colored Dirt begins tonight at 7PM. Our classes are online and are taught via Zoom. My class tonight is Watercolor for Beginners, but I'm also teaching Pet Portraits for Beginners which begins this Friday, July 31st and you can still sign up for it.
Also, you guys should sign up for our PCD newsletter. I'll be sending out news, information about classes, some cool art history facts, quotes and general advice about art making. You can sign up by visiting our PCD homepage and scrolling down to subscribe.
I know I haven't written on this personal blog in a while, but I did write a long blog post over at PCD that you should check out. I wrote it about inspiration, influences and idol worship. If you ever feel lost as an artist (or person in general) give it a read and I'd love to hear your thoughts.
Have a wonderful week everyone, much love.
I have some big news because I'm going to be working and collaborating with the super talented, Mr. Julian Tejera to build and grow a project that he founded, called Pushing Colored Dirt.
I met Julian a few months back and we instantly formed a connection. He's a brilliant teacher and we share a common goal of providing a strong art education for teens and adults. Julian and I also share a firm foundation in the academic tradition of art making.
This project is developing and will be further enhanced throughout this summer. Julian and I are looking forward to providing the quality art education that every student deserves. The classes and content will be online for now and possibly could develop into a studio location where students can come. Essentially it's a school, but it's also an online community where we can share ideas and build together.
Sadly, arts programs have been the victim of budget cuts and school's have done away with many important studio art classes. Having taught at a public school myself, I saw this first hand; art isn't taken as seriously as it should be. We're going to build a program that appreciates creativity and the power that creativity has on developing a successful person.
