So inspired by Art Lounge

I haven't even had time to share the new class I am teaching at the local art center.

Art Lounge, a hip safe place for students to explore the visual arts.

Each week a group of 14-18 year-old students meet at the art center for art making and dinner. It is super fun to work with the older students, I really love it!

One aspect of the class is creating a group artists blog.
The students designed and named the blog: Art Juggler. 
Check it out and be come a  follower here!

One of my goals for the class is to share with them living, breathing artists so they can get a feel for what it is like to be a real artist in this world, and they can learn how to use technology to share their work with an audience.

Here are a few recent projects:
