Home School visit to NewTek, San Antonio, Texas

Thankyou for your attendance today at NewTek,

I hope everyone enjoyed the experience and that you felt comfortable and enjoyed the discourse. I am thinking that if you enjoyed the experience and felt you wanted a return visit with the group, i would be partial to that and suggest it to my company.

A return visit will involve a more formal purpose in the content i would prepare. I have some fun exercises in fundamentals that tap into the creative process. This will hopefully be as much fun to the Parent as to the Student. Or possibly, it could be an overview of Animation History or Art History in General, I am open to suggestion.

Returning to today’s discourse , here are the links i promised. These links consist of specifics of Artistic processes, from Exhibition process to exercises in drawing.

Please pursue at your leisure. Suggestions for me covering other aspects of art, i will do my best. Please click on title to access video. All my videos I have uploaded to YouTube.

This section deals with drawing perspective.

Below are links that record my attempts at drawing and painting on location during business trips abroad.

Below are a bunch of blogs i wrote to help address aspects of the philosophy behind sketching and other artistic disciplines such as why composition is important.

I hope this is good for starters and i hope we can arrange another opportunity for a visit.
