VISUAL ARTS - fiber arts, paper and mixed media collage, repurposed materials

“Can you use this?” Is music to my ears. I think the curiosity that spawns from the process of artful re-purposing is a spontaneous gift. Look what I made, from that - while my brain was at play.

Visual Arts - Drawing with Graphite

I believe that anyone can learn to draw anything, to a high level of satisfaction. With a solid foundation in realistic drawing, and a thorough knowledge of how to approach drawing challenges,  students can further build and develop their own style and infuse their personalities into their artwork.
