Some people are a little surprised to walk in and find out that I am the instructor. I'm almost always younger than everyone, sometimes by quite a few decades, and I look even younger than I am. They do seem to warm up to the idea and accept my instructions. I think! I admit I am not the most experienced instructor and I am still learning how to become a better teacher. I sometimes have to remind even myself that I may be 25 but I've been hard-core drawing all my life, went to one of the best art schools possible, and have now been teaching art for three years. In spite of that it is a bit disheartening to overhear someone looking at my art (not at Studio B, I won't say where) and saying, "Isn't that that young girl who took a couple art classes and now she's teaching??" But alas, I know that old man had no idea who I am or what my abilities are.
I really am constantly fighting the battle of 'Yes, I'm young, but I'm competent, dammit!" Of course I know that can't be a life-long battle because someday I will actually be and look older!
Blahblahblah, here's a couple from last night:
