Recently a school teacher from Boise, Idaho wrote to me. She told me she was bringing 31 high school art students to New York city for the purpose of seeing all the great art galleries in Manhattan. Christine thought it would be a great idea if they could meet a real artist too. That is where I come in. "Would I agree to be that, said artist?" Hell yeah, I'll meet some crazy kids. We met on the High Line, where I was doing a drawing. They got to see me working on a sketch in progress. I brought along a bunch of my drawing books for them to see first hand. It was a lovely experience for me and maybe for them too. They do have a very smart teacher, that's for sure.
