Anythink Library as an "Artist in Residence." This in light of sometimes lack of funding, availability, or simple appreciation of visual art courses in the public school systems.
Over the course of my career I hope I can find more ways to contribute to the creative voice for education. I can't wait to see what will be created at "the studio" this summer!
See some of my drawings from summer at Anythink. Most drawings were done as request from youth who wanted to see me draw something they were interested in, or to show them how to draw by looking at books. One can learn to draw animals and apply what is learned to draw a dragon for example.
I have provided some links for some of the books used for demonstration as well. If you know someone learning to draw please share!
