    Updates + Drawing Is The Best Way To Learn

    Hi, everyone! To you who are listeners only and haven't been in the know via Instagram, we have new things going on here at BTB Studios. Listen to learn what's up and to hear the reading of this article by Anne Quito called Drawing Is the Best Way to Learn, Even if You’re No Leonardo da Vinci. It's based on a book called Stick Figures: Drawing As A Human Practice by D.B. Dowd. And thank you, as always, for listening and showing your support! I appreciate you so much. Let's stay in touch on my new Brush Club Newsletter! Details below.

    Also highlighted in this episode:

    The Art of Seeing with Kateri Ewing

    The Art of Seeing with Kateri Ewing

    I have Kateri Ewing on the show with me today. We talk about the impact John Ruskin has had on us as artists, about her work and teaching, and about her unique point of view on drawing and learning to see. We touch on many things here- I cannot wait for you to take a listen! Stay until the end for a beautiful reading of one of her poems and for some notes for my listeners participating in this month's Fésole Club! #fesolebranstock
