This summer my friend and fellow Artist/Teacher Jeannine Bardo and I are hooking up to team teach an adult art and creativity class. Jeannine often co-taught with me at Do Art! this Spring and we thought the combination of a creativity, imagination based approach (me, see my work at http://www.flickr.com/photos/artschool/sets/ ) and a sight based, realistic/skills based approach (Jeannine, website in progress) to working and art made a really dynamic and interesting teaching approach.
There are so many ways to see and do art, so what we are thinking is we expose the student to many possibilities thus making it easier (and more fun!) for the student to find their own truth and most natural form of expression.
We have been hammering out the details and the combination of philosophies, points of view and approaches are opening us both up to the infinite possibilities of art and personal expression. Within all of this Jeannine and I find our common ground in the idea that it is our job to help students find their unique voice and natural talents.
So come check us out this summer! We have some interesting projects planed to get you "there". The cost is $175 for 5, 2 hour classes beginning July 21 at Bright Ideas in Bay Ridge. See flyer below for rest of details.
Spread the word!!! And remember art is fun!!!
