Things on the boil.

This winter has been a busy one, and I haven’t been posting as often as a result. Two major events have taken place that has been keeping me busy. One was that I was hired to be an adjunct art professor at Frederick Community College this summer, and two is that I have been working on my annual box show project. I just completed the project, and that show will be starting on March 1. I will leave a link with all the gallery show details here:  

On another note, I will be teaching an art class on pastel this March which will run for five weeks at Frederick Community College. I will be working in the enrichment department, called ILR, short for Institute for Learning in Retirement, which is a senior citizen population. Its been a learning curve working on a syllabus, lesson planning and testing out the art projects I plan to teach. I need to start drawing more so I am ready to demonstrate these paintings. Sadly, my daily art practice has fallen to the four winds, but I am hoping to get back into it by working more in my sketchbook and also on the pastel projects. Thanks for stopping by! front of box, schmidt, flatanother side, schmidt, flatinside of box, schmidt, flatFCC ILR catalogjpgCourse schedule

  1. Great news Jodie! Very happy for you and congratulations on your new job. I’ve been meaning to write, Christmas flew by with family travels and not enough time to reach out and connect with friends. We are trying to figure out what to do here. Andy has had a very busy year, some good (very good connections with students), some not so good (administration and paperwork really take the joy out of the job). So we are trying to decide whether to stay or go. I will keep you posted. Good luck with your box project! Danielle
