Teacher as student

"India Influence" A spread from my sketchbook. by Jane LaFazio
I love love love taking workshops and classes! A few weeks ago, I took a one day workshop from Orly Avineri . What a joy to spend the day as a student, following Orly's guidance, and working in my sketchbook. (The spread above was influenced by a movie I just saw, The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel. A FABULOUS movie, set in India. Really, don't miss this movie!)
