“Education is not the filling of a pot but the lighting of a fire.” –W.B. Yeats
I miss teaching. With the COVID-19 precautions in effect, I’m reminded of how much I love to teach. To be in the company of people who are willing to risk themselves in the process of making art. Making art can make us feel vulnerable but it’s often the vulnerability and fear that help us to realize deeper truths about the world around us. Making art is exciting but making it with someone else is magical.
“I’m a writer who explores what it means to be alive through stories. Sometimes I get stumped and I hit a dead-end. Working with Sarah in her studio usually unlocks the impasse, opens up new vistas for me to explore visually and verbally. I’m always grateful for the generous, informed visual experiences Sarah offers. They’re a tonic. Thank you.” -Sandra Campbell, Student
Once the spread of COVID-19 begins to slow, and life returns to normal, so will my teaching. In the meantime, let’s continue to make art, love and laugh as if we’re already past this.
