Wow...

I found some time to update my blog. Sorry world. ;)  The next few posts will be updates on what I've been up to or learning.  Thanks for reading.

How Internship is going:
- I was able to be a part of the Scholastics Art Awards.  All the art interns helped show Jr. & H school art work.  It was a cool time and I was able to see a lot of great work.  These kids are talented.  Check some of their art out:

Also, watch this video interview on the artist Jacqueline Roch [who is amazing- pastel artist] and watch till the end and tell me who you see.  Ha!  

- I've been teaching now for a month I believe.  I was supposed to start teaching one period a week and add to that.  I started teaching full days my second week into it.  My first lesson was on the Abstract painter Wassily Kandinsky.  Here are some of the kids works so far:

The last two are works from our autistic students.  Our next lessons will be sewing, weaving, collage, and maybe a self-portrait project.

- This past week was my critique for my still life painting class. I am really grateful that God has given me a great professor who has helped me improve with painting with pastels.  I'll put pictures of my final work later.  This week I start portraiture.

These are just a few updates of school and internship.  I'll share more stories of all the wonderful students later.
