The other day I had an email from an art teacher in Uganda asking that I critique some student work - ages 10 and 11.

Here's what I wrote:

Hello class, your teacher has asked me to critique some paintings for you. That’s a pretty cool teacher because he bugged me for you until I said yes. Good job teacher!

Let me say first that each and every artist has their own idea of what…

Hi Richard.  Trying to wing your workshop in San Francisco.  Hope to see you there.  I was wondering if I could go back and look at previous workshops and join and do them?  I was sure I found it once and I think it was like 10 dollars.  But can't figure out how to find it????  Also,  bought the paints you suggested but having some problems.  Could you e-mail me or get back to me so we can have a private talk about them....
