Talking on Skype to the students at Meriwether Lewis
Elementary school in Charlottesville, Virginia, USA
photo by Andrew SheroganToday I was a Skype guest at a Virginia Public school.
Through the miracle of Skype (and it certainly has
been a miracle in my life) I traveled to Virginia
and met a brilliant and lively group of students.
They are studying art with Andrew Sherogan, a
great artist himself. And his passion for teaching
showed in the intelligent questions the kids asked me,
and their extreme enthusiasm for the subject. Andrew
wondered before the interview if they'd have any
questions, or whether they might need to be prompted.
But every hand was up and waving every time the students
had a chance to ask me something new. So I want to thank
Andrew's class for being awesome interviewers.
Can you draw my T-shirt?
(One of the questions from a boy at the end of the talk
so I did. )

talked to me just before we said goodbye.
What an exciting and inspiring event for me.
Props to Andrew and the super kids in his class.
Have a loving-talking-about-art day.
