Good Morning Dear, I have mostly drawn or painted flowers. I am trying to learn how to draw
different things as I feel I am in a rut. I hate ruts.... So I have taken some online classes from
Junelle Jacobson (Yes and Amen) So far I have learned a lot. I also do some Zentangle. But
again I am learning... I would love to take your class. Thanks for sharing your beautiful art and
also for giving away 10 spots. That is very generous. Dawn

I have been an elementary teacher for 20 years. I have taught Jr. High Spanish, 2nd grade and I now teach Kindergarten bilingual. I love to draw the illustrations from the books I read to my kinders. I draw the Cat in the Hat, bunnies, cats, pigeons, and other characters. This year has been very stressful, and I would love to take a class to relieve a lot of that stress. Please choose me!

Faces of my grandkids or someone I admire and sketchy landscapes are my favorite things to draw. One is detailed, slow and extremely tedious and I love doing this to bring up memories and all the love. The other is quick and enjoyable way to capture a memory of a certain place and time.

I am obsessed with your classes and signed up for one to do next summer when I'm not inundated with teaching high school. I manage to keep a daily journal so this is the perfect class for me.

I'm a bit scared of drawing and sketching. So trying to avoid that in my artjournal. But no longer! So I've already signed up for your class. Hopefully to learn drawing cats, houses, random knick-knacks. This year's x-mas gift to myself. :-) Warm hug, Annelies

Charlotte said...

Dear Alisa,
I really adore your art and your blog, you actually inspired me to get a blog of my own. I love art, but drawing was always just a tool for me and I'd love to get inspired to use it more on its own. When I'm drawing, it is animals (birds, cats, rabbits) or fruits that interest me most.
Yours, Charlotte

Amber said...

Yay!

mbi said...

Since I was a good, I haven't believed that I could be good at drawing. Recently, I overcame my fear and went to an art class and drew a teapot and it was so much fun. I would really love to be able to draw more easily, not to get caught up on perfection, but to be able to fill my journal with sketches to add more colour. This class looks great!

Kerrie said...

My favorite thing to draw is a simple still life. Slowing down enough to make careful observations makes for the only quiet moment in my day it seems!
