ARTISTS NEVER NEED TO TAKE AN ART CLASS AGAIN! NOT!

Art is just good for you, no matter how you look at it!!!  No matter what you do for a living! And especially if you are an artist!!

Some artists may believe that they never need to take another class, but not me and not most of my artists friends.  There are many benefits to being a student.  Learning a new media, a new style, stretching yourself beyond your current mode, seeing things a little differently, interacting with other artists as a giant think tank, and remember what it is like to be a student. If you teach others, it is essential to remember what it is like to teach and be a student, it is to easy to fall in the rut of giving orders, delegating and helping too much or too little.

TODAY IS ART CLASS FOR ME THOUGH I AM A PRACTICING ARTIST.  HOW ABOUT YOU, STEP OUT OF YOUR STUDIO, LEARN SOMETHING NEW, STEP OFF YOUR HIGH HORSE OF ANY EGO YOU MIGHT HAVE ABOUT YOUR WORK, YOUR PERSONAL VISION, OPEN UP AND SEE THINGS A LITTLE DIFFERENTLY.  I GUARANTEE YOU, YOU WILL GROW IN YOUR ART AND IN YOUR SELF!
