It has been a while since I have taught a weekly class but I want you to know I am enjoying teaching a group of ladies at Mount Ida, Arkansas (Ouachita Artists Gallery & Studio) what I know about working with colored pencils. We are in our second week and yesterday they did their first composition and I am pleased with their works. I brought some fruit and they tackled the task using the techniques we learned the previous week. Next week we will draw and design a composition of a flower. They seem excited about this process to take with them in their travels. Take a peak at some of their activity.
