Art Lesson at the G

eman elshareef and three white mugs

Last summer I was asked by  Eman Elshareef if I would give her art lessons. I was quite hesitant at first because I’d always thought of teaching as a highly respected vocation, necessitating great patience, a good connection with the pupil and a strong ability to instruct effectively, characteristics none of which I possessed. Somehow she convinced me and we started last November. I must say that despite my lack of experience in this field, it turned out I had a bit of patience, a fine connection with my student, and a simple, yet effective way of teaching: just watch and listen to me paint.

  1. Wow! I didn’t know you gave lessons! That’s great! Although you sound like a tough teacher and Eman must be very brave! How can I get lessons? Can I email you to discuss? What’s your email address?
