WORKING TOO HARD “Did I hear you say you’re working too hard?” Let’s see. . there are 365 days a year and you sleep 8 hours a day – 1/3 of the year. That leaves 244 days to work. t~ile you’re not sleeping, 8 hours of each day is for recreation or relaxing. That leaves 122 days for you to work. Now deduct 52 Sundays, leaving 70 working days. At most, you work half days on Saturday, so deduct 26 more for that. Now there are 44days to work. Allow- ing l½ hours for lunch and coffee breaks each day adds up to 28 days, leaving just 16 work- ing days. You get 2 weeks vacation each year you now have 2 working days to face. But no one works Christmas or July 4, so yousee you really don’t work at all, do you!

I consider ART a part of the real world, a NECESSAHY part for the understanding of our lives. I teach it as an extension of the intellectual as well as the visual world surrounding us, from mlcroscopic totelescojpic. “I~UAL STUDIES enlarges the idea of the ordinary art lesson, takes the cliche frame away, and may allow the student to think of all that he or she seei~, feels and under- stands as part of a world that should have meaning for him or her. WORESHOP is a better term for a teaching sltuation where students and teacher are exploring, expanding their visual perception and improving their ability to interpret ideas in an appropriate medium; a place where students can discover i the meaning of space, form, color, texture, and line for~themselves, and eventually be able to organize their o~rn visual environment in a meaningful i way. Expenses being the only limitation, we can try anything. I will offer i criticism, space to work, encouragement on an adventure with space – internal ~ and external. CLASSES are geared to the individual withno less than 6 in each class, and ! no more than i0. The SATURDAY MORNING CLASS will spend several sessions visiting important galleries and musetu~s in the Washington area. BEGINNERS will start with drawing and design from standard models, photographs, other artists work, abstract and realistic. Gradually students discover their own direction. The teacher will be present at all times for assistance and guidance. Seeing master artists work from the past and the present is important. Negative results are considered useful and necessary as an aid in seeing, i ADVANCED studentswill learn to plan their own projects, how to prepare their work for showing, and general professianalism.
