Teaching at the local elementary school

What fun!

I lead two days of portrait drawing classes this week at Otto Petersen Elementary School in Scappoose. My students were in the 4th, 5th, and 6th grades – a VERY energetic group.

The school brought in several artists from the local area. Students got to choose what they wanted to do; including drawing, watercolor, printing, abstraction, and more.

One of my groups with their pastel self portraits:

An impressive church hidden in a small community

St. Sebastian Church in Rockenhausen, Germany. It’s about 30km north of Kaiserslautern. The church is imposing on the outside and impressive on the inside, very well kept, and the pastel hues of the sun coming through the square glass window panes is amazing.
