teaching art

So I haven't posted much lately due to some deadlines i had for shows and commission work. But what has taken more of my time has been an art teaching gig I picked up for the summer at

Although I had thoughts about teaching before, but never really put any effort behind it. Now that I have experienced it , I gained a new respect for the craft.  Showing other people how paint  and its application has brought me a lot of joy, to see adults and kids create things,especially when they  doubted themselves.
Especially the older crowed, there is a joy that comes from them when ever I show them a new brush technique, new to them...because no one taught them these basic things.
It has made me interested in taking this new ball and running with it all the way to some colleges. who knows, I could be an influence to some future artists. We will see.
