My Drawing Class


I had such a great day at the Society yesterday teaching a class on drawing to these young art students. It was too much fun to call it work, I'd do it all again today if I could. I really think I got more out of it than they did and I think I might have met some of the sketch bloggers of the future, it was so great to be around these kids I just want to do more. In the mean time, back to reality.

I love how each child had such a different style and point of view. You should do it again, spread the love of art. It's a shame that so many schools are cutting back on art and music because of budgetary cut backs.

Ha! Sketch bloggers of the future:)

This just does my heart so good Stephen! School have been cutting art classes because of budgets and deeming non-essential.

Looking at those faces, cannot they see how it feeds their souls?

You're my hero...
