Been working on a newsletter for the studio. Last time we had a newsletter was 3 years ago. I dont like writing, in fact I hate writing, for anyone who read all my blog know i cannot write.... Half of the time you probably dont know what i am talking about.
But I always want a newsletter, a place where the kid can have fun and the parent can get some information of what we are doing.  So I will try to do this as monthly as possable. If you are a student or parent form the studio, you can pick it up from thestudio  counter. I will probably make it downloadable from later.
o and thanks Carmen for editing my writing in the newsletter, so all of you dont have to read thru my painfull writing, like now. lol

New BTS Portfolio Class Blog!!!!

Yes, its another blog from me. This one is just for my Portfolio class, so student can see each other work and learn from each other. I think that the most important thng about being an artist, to be able to learn and read into others artists' works. I wish this year portfolio well as they have alot of work ahead of them.

Dead bird :(

A dead bird was find outside of the studio. I know you are supposed to call the city about it, but the kids were getting restless about it, so I just pick it up and put it in the trash. I fear if I don't do it sooner, it will get run over by a shopping cart, and that will be a mess to clean up....

This week we learn about cubism, using warm colour and cool colour. It was a fun class and most of the student enjoy it. Its just abit harder for the younger one to understand.

Flowers in the studio

Last week I brought in some flower and we just look at them and draw. Not a whole alot of kid like doing this, of course everyone like to draw cartoon, who want to draw some boring flower..... But its important to learn from drawing still life. I think at the end of each class, most of the student handle in pretty well and they all learn a thing or two. Its just not very fun for me trying to keep them alive for the whole week, since the plant is not getting alot of light in the studio...
