Today I set up 4 different art stations: pastels, acrylic painting, Chinese ink painting, and adult coloring. One resident made many face paintings in ink.

I just love all of the masks made today at my Seniors Creating Art class! We all start with the same palette, then discuss a bunch of ideas, and then people go their own way. It's always a delightful surprise at the end!

These are photos from my first "Paint & Sip" that I taught in December 2015. They encompass an afternoon spent learning to paint and drinking wine along the way. Everyone leaves with their painting at the end. As you can see, everyone's painting is a tad different, which is great because it shows off their creative leanings and their personality. I'll be doing this fairly regularly in 2016.

Benn Ray at Atomic Books recruited me to draw these overheard strips for a feature in (formerly) The B Daily (then changed to B the site) in the Baltimore Sun. I drew 28 of them in total, since about 2005. They just ended the feature this month. Benn luckily has always cross-posted them on Mutant Funnies too.

I got a job with Seniors Creating Art - a small non-profit that sends art teachers to senior communities a little out of the way for 8-week art classes. I am teaching Linoleum Block Printing in White Center. Most of my students had not even drawn anything for 60 years and I asked them to draw, transfer that drawing to a block, cut the block, and print it. It's been a great experience. See below Melinda's process. She is even drawing at home for fun, which she has never done!
