Today we had a fantastic visit, during homeroom, from PHS Alumni and an incredibly talented artist, Timothy Jahn. Tim is is a representational painter and teacher. He is the head instructor of Ani Art Academies and is here for a few days before heading to Sri Lanka to head up a new Ani Art Academy. Tim is also the son of our 9/10 school Nurse, Mrs. Jahn. Today, Tim shared some charcoal and pencil techniques that he teaches his students. He shared tips and techniques for improving our ability to create smooth value changes and discussed different paper surfaces to work on. I think everyone left today with something they could immediately apply to their work. Thank you Tim!
