Rachelle is a superb teacher. She has many talents in which she excels. Teaching is certainly one of them. I will always be grateful that Rachelle was the one chosen to walk with me in this journey.
And you have worked with us on faces and knowing where the nose and the mouth and gridding that all off. I've never had that. And so that's important, because I do do face stuff every now and then. I do angels and things like that with my pottery. And so to knowing the proportions of that is so helpful. the other night we did an owl and I never have drawn an owl before. And so now I'm thinking, Hmm, what if I bought out the clay and did those shapes that we drew in clay that would be great!
I started out just to take a couple of classes to help Rachelle out getting started in a new town, but then I fell in love with the weekly opportunity to be an artist!
It is what got me through the last eight months. It brings me joy! Art Journaling via Zoom:) Stress management that was much needed:)
And I will confess that the main reason I signed up for this class [Art Journaling Weekly] was the emphasis there seemed to be on watercolor. I am so glad I took that step. This visual self expression has brought a new joy into my life. I find myself wanting not only to paint, but to just draw. I'm finding when I read something/anything/all very random, an image comes into my mind that I just want to put on paper.
I'm starting to think of that as self revelation. Which just proves, lol, that we are never too old to learn!
So thank you Rachelle, for facilitating this journey, for growing me, and for nudging me out of my box! I'm packing for a long, long road trip!
She is FUN and FUNNY yet her knowledge is immense! She humbly presents techniques and lets your creativity come forth with no judgement. According to Rachelle, there are no mistakes, what happens is art. Her teaching is "hands on" from the get go.
Most impressive overall is her depth of experience and knowledge of inspiring artists and writers that are brought casually into each lesson. Not an overwhelming lecture by no means, just enough information to spark the desire to go further, research, and practice finding your own artistic voice.
I'm learning a lot in stories from other cultures and also how to [express] what's going on. How to grow as a person, like boots on the ground and I think that makes all of us better people.
