Ever since I could hold a pencil an irresistible need to search and capture all the splendors of our world lived inside me. The features on a German Gothic church, a statue, a human figure, my favorite cartoons, or nature; I just had to seize it.Even though I did have decades of drawing wonderful work and yet, I still did not believe enough in my drawing abilities. That is until I learned the Master Art Drawing Technique at The George Washington University School. Being in an Information Systems major, I had to petition for that capstone class that is usually reserved to the Art Majors. Professor Frank Wright taught this subject and granted me the right to enroll. He must have seen something in my art and he did test my aptitudes to draw live figures before taking me in.
Finishing this class finally helped me make my mark in the art world and to feel part of the Prestigious Renaissance Era’s private club of Michalangelo and Da Vinci. I now know the right papers to use, how to paint it, what are the appropriate pencils to do lights and shadows, and I know how to present my art in a professional manner. This was the boost in the know-how and in the confidence that gave me the courage to take on exhibits. This is the torch I wish to gift to my pupils.
