teaching and learning

Have you heard of Dabble? It's a website where you can find all sorts of fun classes/workshops to take in the city. As a teacher, I love this sort of thing. Learning new things has always been my favorite part of teaching. The range of classes that are offered is huge- all types of visual art, cooking, music, writing, tech stuff, public speaking, design, dance, etc. You can also propose ideas for classes you want to take or propose to teach a class.
I'm looking forward to having free time to take advantage of this sort of thing!

Vik Muniz new works

Artist Vik Muniz has three new works made from gold scrap metal that will be on view as digital prints at the Armory Show in New York starting March 7th, 2013 through Rena Bransten Gallery. Muniz is known for creating images using multitudes of discarded objects and trash, and you may have seen his work in the 2010 documentary Waste Land.
