Back to Artshop for Spring!

We’re about halfway through the new spring semester of Express Yourself Artshop, and I wanted to share what some of my students have been working on. My two painting classes in particular are pretty full this time around, which has been a lot of fun. It is exciting to discover everyone’s own unique preferences and styles. I really must just let the pictures speak for themselves.

Anyone interested in education, teaching, or mentoring in any way should give this video I found awhile ago a watch.

Yes, it’s focus is on kids and tech, but I found the takeaways applicable to many ages, abilities, and fields. People really do have unimaginable potential when they are actually allowed to experiment, explore and discover.

“Get out of their way, and let them be amazing.”
