Art Quote of the Day

” To give body and perfect form to your thought, this alone is what it is to be an artist. “- Jacque Louis David

Good Morning….. 6 AM , my usual time of waking up and working on my blog here, but starting today I begin teaching again . I have been on Christmas break from Edgwood College , since the first week of December and boy has the time flown by!  I’ll be spending alot less time here for the next couple of weeks  seeing as how I have to be at school by 8 AM at the lastest (ugh) and won’t get home until 5 this afternoon. It’s a long day but I love it. The next 2 weeks are called Winterim and students get a full semester’s amount of work and credit by coming 3 hours a day , every day for 2 weeks. It’s so intense and so much more like working as an actual artist in an actual studio setting. So , in the morning I teach Figure Drawing which is for Art Majors who’ve had alot of drawing already. FUN! Then in the afternoon I teach something called Art Structure which is a class that NON-ART majors have to take ,( these students are nursing students or finance students or criminal justice students who usually haven’t done any art since grade school !) This class offers a ‘sampling’ of everything; drawing, painting, printmaking,sculpture,design, color theory and the experience of not having THE RIGHT ANSWER to most of their questions! Also Fun !!

Soooooooooo, why tell you all of this? In my still -new-at-this-blogging-place, I have been told that I should write some more personal stuff in my posts  , rather than just post an art quote everyday. I want you all to get to know me a little bit , go to the other pages on my blog, take a look at my work…. y’know? See what Jane (that’s me) DOES!!

For the next 2 weeks I will be posting images of the work done by these most fantastic students…. in the future posts I will talk about Teaching, Edgewood College,my own work , AND , yes, of course  THE ART QUOTE OF THE DAY. I hope you will enjoy following the ramblings of another blogger and I’m looking forward to any comments you all might send my way.

  1. I really appreciate the time you take to post all the quotes, Jane. They’re spot on. Well, but that’s spoken from the beginner’s mind. Anyway, thanks for putting up the blog.
