Drawing Animals...

2/17/10- Drawing Animals. 5:15pm-6:15pm.

Getting geared up to teach again! Really looking forward to working with the Infinity Performing Arts Organization. I taught a quick introduction class a week or so ago and it was very cool.

One thing that sets Infinity apart from other teaching situations that I have participated in, is that the students WANT to be there. I can't tell you how much better that makes any class... as an instructor of a teacher. On both side of the "desk" a willing group is a group that learns. The concept of "No Child Left Behind" flies directly in the face of this concept, which is why I have always hated it.

Information and education isn't something given to you. You have to take it. You have to want it. As a teacher, you have to want to share it too. The desire to learn and get better is the real skill everyone must learn to achieve great things, and when the instructor wants to teach, and the students want to learn everything else is awesome!
