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.

Honored and very excited to be working with this brilliant company. Click this photo below to read the article about how and why I use Natural Pigments products.
I'm quite excited because my order from Natural Pigments arrived today! The shipping was fast as always! I ordered a few items that I needed and some new things to test out. All the items were beautifully and thoughtfully packaged; Natural Pigments even used old shipping receipt paper to pack the boxes. That's really resourceful and I appreciate the thought put into it.
Another great touch is that the paint tubes were individually packaged with half pieces of biodegradable styrofoam used to keep the tubes safe. There's nothing worse than getting a tube of expensive paint shipped and opening it to find that the tube is crumpled! These tubes are immaculate and don't have any dents at all.
As I said, I ordered a few tubes of oil paint and some supplies that I needed, but I also got some watercolors that I'll be testing out and doing a review of very soon. I'm super excited to be using such beautiful products and I highly recommend Natural Pigments to anyone looking for quality products. Have a great weekend everyone!
