I am starting a Portrait class at Creative Arts Workshop this May. So herewith are some portraits that I am thinking about, in no particular order.
Here are some links to artists we talked about in Journaling last week.
Amanda Birnham‘s CSPAN drawings
Katayoun Vaziri’s gouache paintings using negative space in public places at sundaysdrawings.com
The call for Art for the 2018 Silence Breakers Exhibition in conjunction with Nasty Women Connecticut is due soon
This is a blog post for the students who are in Starting a Visual Journal, CAW Winter Session 2018. Herein, I will try to remember all the sites I showed you and other relevant information, such as favorite books, materials etc. There will also be links to the journal prompts and drawing prompts that I recommend for this course.

Links to the prompts I handed out
I have just migrated my entire blog from blogspot over here to my wordpress site. It is taking me a bit of time to adjust to a new workflow and I have not made many posts lately because I have been busy wrapping up the spring semester at Hopkins. Friday was my last official class day with my students, but there is still a week of exams (well, for me, proctoring other people’s exams, and writing comments for my students.) I am going to miss them fiercely. I am afraid I was totally a distracted teacher this term due to lots of different reasons. I let them take as long as they wanted with projects, but that meant that they got a little less formal feedback and a lot more working time. As usually, I guess, I could take out one project, and leave more room for dialogue. But that is neither here nor there. They did tons of cool work and hopefully I will be posting some of it here soon.
