#Continuous #Line and the #FineArts – What #Skills are you working on?

“An average person with average talent, ambition and education, can outstrip the most brilliant genius in our society, if that person has clear, focused goals.” – Brian Tracy

”Even talent is rarely indistinguishable, over the long run, from perseverance and lots of hard work.” Ted Orland and David Bayles – Art and Fear.

Ah Oil Paints… How I have missed you…


  • G: 2.1Ac: Through experimentation, practice, and persistence, demonstrate acquisition of skills and knowledge in a chosen art form.

What works have you got planned? What do you need to do to get the work from the past semester all wrapped up and solidified?  G: Last 15 minutes – Stand up and read the 2 questions and respond in front of class with two works that clearly demonstrate your ideas and growth. http://frankjuarezpaintings.com/
