For the Month of January 2019
The first month of this new year presented some problems for me when deciding who should be recognized as the “Student of the Month” . If you go back and look at the classes (and it was a very busy month) you will see lots of nice paintings and if I had to make the decision on just the results it would be even more difficult. But, I take several other things into account. I look at the age of the student, how well they listened to instruction and watched the little things when I was demonstrating. I continue to stress that the real key this technique is learning the correct way to load the brush and then, how the brush touches the canvas. It is not a drawing skill.
So, after reviewing each of the students for this month, I have decided that the student most worthy of this recognition is Adam Hompland. Congratulations young man!
