My Role as The Teacher

I have been teaching students for over 6 years now.

I started working with my first student 6 years ago when she was 9. It is so uplifting to work with talented young people, and she is definitely talented.  We took a trip to the Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago last week, and that really got her creative juices flowing. She will be attempting a painting this summer using natural organic product; pomegranates will be coming into play. She also wants to try a blow torch; I will need to have a discussion with her mother first!

This is a shot of my Friday night class through the window. I was throwing out some rather messy rags, and walking back in, I saw them hard at work. The moment was so all encompassing — to see creativity flowing.

At the time, they were working on the National Duck Stamp competition. Both ended up winning 2nd place.

One on my Sunday students won 1st place in her age group. I really do love this job!
