Art Class

Before I was teaching art classes at Crealde School of Art, I sometimes would stop in at different art classes around Central Florida to see artists at work. This seniors class was in a beautiful location right on a lake with white Ibis hunting for food right on the lawn. This was a watercolor class and I have to admit, I am a bit envious of the wide assortment of watercolor brushes that were available. I scrub watercolor on my sketches with a brush that has clearly seen better days.

I shared my sketchbooks with the class and then settled in to do a sketch of the artists at work. Besides the traditional watercolors being done there was also a large high tech printer available which is again something that would make my life so much easier to have in the studio.

Today was my last day with my Crealde Urban Sketch students and it always feels terrible to leave them just as they are warming up to the journey of doing sketches consistently. Once in a while a student comes along who embraces all you offered and it is a true pleasure to see them blossom and progress.

Prints are available for each sketch for $250 and many originals can be purchased for $400. White museum grade shadow box frames are $100 more. You can e-mail Thor at
