When I show my students my artwork, I do it for many reasons.  I want them to be able to trust that I know what I am doing, I want them to see my passion for my subject, and most importantly, I want them to see that we all start in the same place.  This is why I show my art from the start. That’s right, some of my very first art pieces are displayed below for your viewing pleasure!

Already defeated, some of my students come into my classroom on our first day together and tell me, “I can’t draw.”  They have given up before they even gave me a try.   It is my goal to teach all of my students, especially these ones, that art is a discipline.  If you desire to get better at it, like I did, all you need to do is practice.
