Friday, March 7, 2014: today’s class we did printmaking using thin styrofoam board and pencils to carve our the images. Using ink, brayers and boards, my students made some wonderful prints. It was so much fun seeing their eyes light up when they peeled back their papers to reveal their prints. I asked for a copy from each and will treasure these for a long time. I love printing and being able to share that with them was something I’ll remember for a long time. #artclass #printmaking

A fun evening in the studio of Wei. What a fun space filled with a collection of sorts. I need a space like this. #photography

Happy Birthday to the strongest man I know, my father. To many more years of laughter. #family
Subbing two classes for #futureartsnow. Today was the first class and the project I planned was splitting up the painting into 15 pieces of 7inch squares and giving them the originals to recreate from using oil pastels. Many of them had never heard of or used oil pastels.
A lot of them enjoyed it and really got into the medium.
Was fun creating a larger group project.

Wishing for spring to hurry up and arrive in NYC for my friends over there experiencing ridiculous temperatures. Also, for friends who are traveling over.
