ALL THINGS ARTS:

They are in no special order. Classical artists are mixed in with contemporary ones. There are painters, sketchers, carvers, printers, illustrators, visual journalers, letterers, and many who mix their media. Some I have met, as a fellow artist or student, many I have not. But in some way, each has a style, a technique, a sense of play that appeals to me and makes me want to play along. I have eclectic tastes. Variety is the spice, you know.

Resources 

On this page, I highlight resources I go back to often for general enlightenment, tools, techniques, opportunities to grow. I am ALL THINGS ARTS, but sometimes just handling LIFE is an art, (amazing as it can be), so there are a few of those here, too. You can find the complete list HERE. A reminder that this page is a work in progress...

VIDEOS & TUTORIALS

A fantastic elementary art teacher, Tricia Fuglestad, who uses classroom technology in the most creative ways. Many ideas for personal use, also. You will be astounded at the opportunities she provides her students to exercise their creativity. Extensive website, blog, archives; she profusely shares ideas, project directions, & tutorials.
