** Hello Friends,

Fall is in the air and it finally feels cool in southeast Tennessee. As we enter my favorite time of year, I wanted to take a moment to share some upcoming art fun. I also wanted to take a moment and share a few photos from my Saturday Morning Art Classes. I just wrapped up a 4-week series and I had so much fun creating with these amazing kids. Thanks to all the parents who let me create with their kids. I hope to do more classes in the future. Look below to find out what I will be up to this month. As always, thanks for your love and support.

Hooray for ART! Jaime

Drawing in New York

I spent an amazing week in New York City, I chaperoned an art department trip with the college I work at.  The entire week was dedicated to art.  We went to all the museums, visited galleries, went to spring break art show and saw all kinds of innovated and strange art installations. It was magical. 

One of the best aspects of the trip was all the drawing that happened.  There were a couple of times that we all sat down as a group and sketched.  Not to mention all the subway drawing.  On a whim I bought a little red note book from the MoMA gift shop.  It was the best little sketch book that fit perfectly in the outside pocket of my purse.  It had this dreamy smooth texture to the pages.  I knew I needed more.  And then, I discover the MUJI store. Swoon.  I found the company online but the shipping was kind of high ($6 for a $1.75 notebook).  At an art store at SoHo I asked if they carried the books and he told me no but they had an entire store around the corner. I love Japanese design and I wanted to buy everything. EVERYTHING.  In the end I grabbed a few pens and my beloved new books.

Here is a flip through of my little Muji scribblers that filled up, mostly on the subway, These are all really quick sketches, under 10min.  All done directly in ink. Some I love, Some I hate.  But all of them have been great practice. 

 

 I also did some legit sketching around the city.  Here are the pages I did plus a few photos.

I love the energy of the city.  I had been a couple of times but this was the most intensive trip I had ever taken.  I can't wait to venture back into the city one day.

Daily Sketch Project.

I have been drawing daily for the past 70 days or so.  I finished out my sketchbook the other day and did a little flip through video.  I will admit that when I started this I thought it would be hard when I was traveling but I have actually found it has been so much easier to do when I am out and about because inspiration is everywhere.  It has been hardest at home, on the super normal days that are filled with work and daily life.  

Painting Cleveland

I've been slowly capturing my town in a series of paintings.  I have been doing quick sketches on  location then doing full painting when I get home.  I am still working on capturing my town.  I have always love small towns. I am really enjoying the process.

Sketches

A peak inside my sketchbook of late . . . 


I have seen this man a few times sleeping in one of our Starbucks in town.  He is either homeless or very down on his luck.  I think it is easy is my town, which has a very small town feeling, it is easy to forget how many people struggle.  I toured our homeless shelter last week and it was sobering.    As I set sipping my coffee I just couldn't shake the feeling that I should take a few minute and reflect.  This sketch is my prayer for all the people that find themselves without a place to rest.   May they know they are loved and find a place to rest soon.  Also, I love that our Starbucks lets this man find rest in their store.   It is a small act of kindness that means so much.
