Awhile ago I had a great afternoon working with a group of high school students. I'm always amazed at the creativity and innovative use of materials that are made available to high school students. We worked on self-portraits, which I think is important not only as an artist, but also for self-esteem. Throughout the years I have taught many age groups and I don't know if I can choose a favorite...the youngest are fearless, the middle schoolers are beginning to be self-conscious but still full of wonder, high school students push boundaries, and adults appreciate the time to create. It's always exciting to see how what I do is translated by others and to see their joy in the process of creation.
