Today was my first day of teaching my 6-9 year olds drawing class. I have five kids in the class. Kids really do say the funniest things. I had all the kids say what they wanted to learn in drawing and my only little girl of the class said, "I want to learn how to draw dinosaurs!" It was very cute and got the attention of the boys! She is a girl after my own heart. When I was a kid, I loved dinosaurs and always spent the most time looking at the fossils at the museum and making my parents take me to anything that had to do about dinosaurs. It also was very exciting to hear that drawing makes this one little boy very happy and he likes being creative! Last semester all my kids could talked about, thought about and even what they were drawing was video games. I am thrilled that not one of my kids today talked about video games or the t.v. Its going to be a great class!
the not so starving artist blog:
Here's the deal... I am an artist and I love food! I refuse to be labeled or included in the "starving artist" category. Now, while I have been broke... I want to be an artist and eat my cake too (metaphorically and literally!)
