Emily Howatt describes the figure in 3 dimensions without using light and shadow Interior inspired by Cezanne’s patches of color next to color by Janet Sekijima One of the most exciting aspects of teaching is that I get to see what a variety of artists do with the ideas I bring. These ideas are gleaned directly from artists and artworks through history, and from artists teaching and making engaging work right now. This shared information functions as seeds for new artworks, and I get to see these new artworks created in my class. Occasionally we see finished pieces, but class projects are usually works in progress, full of the excitement and potential of people experimenting and trying new approaches. I suppose I’ve been feeling a little hemmed in lately, not getting to have our art shows to celebrate these creations, all while League artists have been growing and developing as an artistic community. You may have noticed through these V. Notes that I can’t keep a good idea to myself, so I made a new way to share what’s happening inside my classes: I started an instagram page @ruthievstudents. On this page I’ll be sharing some of the fascinating and inspiring artworks created in class. These artworks are a random grab of whatever caught my eye in the moment, with credit given to the artist. Please check it out! If you see something that interests you please leave a comment. If you see your own artwork there, please feel free to tag and share! Are you a League artist with artwork to share? You are invited to join our Facebook page called Artworks by People.
