When we sent out our Xmas card last December lots of you asked if the gorgeous white Spanish stallion featured on our card, Vejador was actually inside the room with the chandelier, or if we had just hung a chandelier in a very posh stable.
The challenge was to show a drawing interacting with the real world, either using a drawing on paper or transparent film, but it all had to be done without digital manipulation.

Florida artist Steve Rogers has risen to the top ranks of American watercolorists in recent years, and he is winning major awards, judging national exhibitions, demonstrating before large audiences, and teaching packed workshops. But 15 years ago he was like many artists who survive by selling acceptable paintings of regionally popular subjects. "I painted more seagulls, lighthouses, and boats than I care to remember," he says with a chuckle. That experience now helps him motivate his students to make dramatic improvements in their watercolors.
"I try to help them improve their skills, but the most important thing I think I can share with them is the importance of painting with passion."
Steve Rogers attended Rollins College in Winter Park, Florida, graduated from Monmouth College, in Monmouth, Illinois, and later studied with Harold Stevenson and Robert E. Wood. He is a signature member of the American Watercolor Society, the National Watercolor Society, and the Florida Watercolor Society; receiving major awards from those societies, including the top purchase award in the National Watercolor Society show.

Colin Chillag's paintings are unique in giving viewers a taste of the precise realism of which the artist is capable, while simultaneously disrupting the mood of perfection that a completed hyper-realistic painting achieves.
Anthony Baus, "Ruins of Bibiena," 2015, ink and wash, 11 x 15 in. Eleventh Street Arts. Digital image: Anthony Baus. The drawings ... are primarily architectural views, some of which have been created on site at Manhattan's Gilded Age landmarks, such as "Soldiers' and Sailors' Monument" and "Maine Monument, Pigeons." Other works derive from ancient themes surrounding nature, the figure, and the symbolic potential of allegory.
Though spatial skills -- the ability to find meaning in the shape, size, orientation, or trajectory, of objects -- are valuable, the tactics we use to measure student outcomes don't always include these important skills. By not placing value on spatial thinking, we may be missing out on developing the skills of the next Thomas Edison.
You will learn about photography as a visual art practice, and how this can help you to become an engaging and active photographer. You will explore the work and concepts of contemporary photographic artists, which may trigger a new interest in what you photograph.
"The true sign of intelligence is not knowledge but imagination" - Albert EinsteinI remember working in the music industry from 1996 until 2002 and meeting tons of music producers. I could always tell based on my conversations about music with them who would end up being a breakthrough producer and who would simply be average. Those that told me they exposed themselves to a variety of different beats and genres for influence always became the producers in demand from artists across multiple genres. Producers like RZA, Timbaland and DJ Premier come to mind. Those that simply immersed
