Art Educator's Institute 2013

Had another great week at the NH Institute of Art, Art Educator's Institute.  Took a figure drawing class that was enlightening and inspiring.  Used an interesting technique of painting the figure using brayers and a monochromatic palette.

Challenging, with provocative results that I will attempt with my students.  Afternoon class was a digital painting course using photoshop.  Was a little frustrating for a photoshop dummy like myself, but I finally produced a piece that was fun and I certainly learned a lot that I can hopefully pass on to my students as well.  Hated for it to end, as always.  Now for some, hopefully, long productive days in my own studio.

At the NH Institute of Art for their 2013 Educator's Institute.  Will begin digital painting and figure drawing classes tomorrow.  Met with some old friends and new ones over a great Mexican dinner tonight.  Begin bright and early tomorrow.  Will post some pics and hopefully some interesting artwork in the days to come.
