Hi Todd-- I recently discovered your blog, and just wanted to let you know that I think you are doing some excellent painting. How you find the energy after teaching high school kids all day is beyond me. I also am a high school art teacher (former illustrator--20 years), and by the end of the day I am BEAT! Then again, I think I am a good bit older than you.I checked out your school's art department website-- it looks like you have a very strong program there.I would like to invite you to check out my blog, and also to take a look at the 2D Art page at my school, Arts Academy in the Woods (link on my page), located in suburban Detroit.Again, outstanding work-- definitely well above what I have seen from most art teachers in K-12.All the best--Rickp.s. You have been added to the list of art blog links on my page.
Hey Rick,Thanks for the compliments! Many late nights in the studio is the only way I am able to paint...and lots of coffee in the mornings!We're proud of our art dept. too. Each year I am always amazed at the new talented and dedicated art students that we get. By the way, in addition to teaching Art1 and Painting II/III, I also teach 2D design. We offer AP Studio Art, and I teach the 2D and drawing portfolio. One of my AP students received a scholarship to and is now attedning Pratt(I'm still bragging about how proud I am of her!)Anyway, thanks for the kind words..it's also nice to touch base with another art educator!Todd
