Sherrie McGraw’s TEACHING PHILOSOPHY
The life of an artist is not just for a privileged few. The skills involved in becoming an artist are learnable, but for a novice, this journey may seem intimidating. Rest assured, most anyone can learn to paint and draw, but the most important quality to have is perseverance. Solutions in painting and drawing are simple, if we allow ourselves to see them. Learning technique is not the biggest hurdle–it is keeping ourselves from making painting or drawing more difficult than they need to be.
