Substitute Teaching @ UW

Last week a friend of mine and I substitute taught Frank Ching's Architectural sketching class at the U.W.
It took two of us to handle a class of 40 which Frank teaches by himself.  Great fun though.  We introduced watercolor to them  focusing on value.
Here are thumb nail sketches I did talking to students about doing a quick value study.  Also a sketch that I did there.

Last week our urban sketchers group went to the Elliott Avenue Foot bridge.  It was a great spot and everyone had something interesting to sketch.
Here are my sketches from that day.  Also check out urban sketchers results here Sketchcrawl results

Pops Concert @ Garfield High School

Last night we attended the Pops Concert at Garfield Highschool.  It was a great concert filled with familiar tunes from current movies to classics. The Concert Orchestra played music from Apollo 13, An American Tale, Braveheart, Titanic, Lord of the Rings, & Pirates of the Caribbean.  The Symphony Orchestra played Baroque Flamenco with an electric harp solo by Vanessa Stovall,  Overture to West Side Story, Up, and the finale Rhapsody in Blue with piano solo by Jeff Gertler.  Truly amazing talent in all the kids performing.
