Good Morning Wonderers!
Do you remember this painting?
I was so proud of it. What did I say? It was on my level. Well this is Dr. S., my art instructors reaction.
“No. No. No! I don’t care what ethnicity you are, nobody’s hair lays like that! And why is she laying down? Fix the hair!”
I took my little painting to the back of the room with my paintbrush between my legs, crushed. “It’s only my first painting class”, I thought to myself. I took it home and didn’t bother with it at all. The whole painting was an accident in the first place. Remember I told you I used permanent maker to draft out the sketch, in which again, Dr. S. said, “No, no, no!” I explained to him that I was trying to cover over the marker and thought I could get away with it.
Well wonderers, I tell you, I worked on that painting and I worked on that painting but at the last moment I didn’t get to take it back to class because of some mishap or another. So, I decided to take it to the first guild meeting I ever attended. I had only just joined in October.
Well apparently, there is a face associated with his expression because as soon as he looked at it, the whole room echoed, “No, no, no!” In which he quickly added, “Where’s the squirrel?”
I’m back on it wonders hoping to here a yes, yes, yes when class starts again.
Until then thanks for perusing and as always, keep wondering.
it’s too bad he has to say “no no no” to get through to students that they have more to learn! You keep working on it, and you will know when it is right.
No, no, no. He is really a good instructor and is very passionate about teaching art. I’m just making fun of his approach. 🙂
OK. 🙂 I was just hoping he isn’t discouraging you from showing your work and continuing on when you worked so hard to get into this class. If not then it is good. 🙂
It’s all good.
No no no said to me when I was 5 killed my creativity expression for over 40 years! Teachers have such power over our creations if we allow them. Blessings Joy x
No worries Ms. Joy. Dr. S is very supportive and expressive. He’s like Chris Kringle even when he’s critiquing he has a tinkle in his eye and a smile on his face.
