I am currently teaching at ALHH Academy. I feel drawing is an essential tool for expressing your ideas. In my drawing classes, we use man-made and natural objects as our subject matter. We also discover how line, texture, and form create structure on the paper's surface. I believe if you can write your name, you can draw! Watercolor is an extension of drawing. We just add color and some knowledge of how the medium can change the surface of the paper. I feel everyone should strive for his or her own style and be confident of one's individual vision in order to achieve one's own best creative self. I love art, and I love to share my art experience with others.
