Art Lecture = I Heart Students

Last week I had the pleasure of giving my first-ever artist lecture at St. Louis Community College at Florissant Valley. I LOVED it! Why? Because of the students.

I love talking with students, especially when they are engaged and curious. I haven't been teaching in the classroom since subbing for my friend's writing class in January, and I thought I didn't miss it. However, speaking with these young art students was very interesting. They had great questions. They answered my questions. One young man, Dominic, gave me a tour of his paintings in the art building, including works in progress in his studio.  He was in the printmaking class I took there last fall, and it was fun to see him and some of the other students that I met in that class. 

I look forward to more opportunities to talk with students, and I hope that in the near future I can get back to teaching college part-time.
