Emotional output

Any question about today's class we should cover next week?

Background shading
What can we do outside of class to improve our skills most quickly?

What about head phones?
Answer: Headphones make it harder for me and others to connect to you for micro-learning.  I"m willing to discuss headphones on an individual basis.  Students who use headphones are the ones that don't progress as rapidly because they don't hear incidental critique and comments.  We strive to be connected as a creative team rather than isolated in our own soundscape.

You will be glad to know that much of this is already covered by the course content.  We will work with other requests except oil paint as we go along.

Thanks for a great first week.  I look forward to our adventure in drawing together.

Dr. Honoria
