Drawing, paper making and teaching has become a passion and obsession. The following quote from Hokusai illustrates this:

"From the age of six I had a mania for drawing the shapes of things. When I was fifty I had published a universe of designs. but all I have done before the the age of seventy is not worth bothering with. At seventy five I'll have learned something of the pattern of nature, of animals, of plants, of trees, birds, fish and insects. When I am eighty you will see real progress. At ninety I shall have cut my way deeply into the mystery of life itself. At a hundred I shall be a marvelous artist. At a hundred and ten everything I create; a dot, a line, will jump to life as never before. To all of you who are going to live as long as I do, I promise to keep my word. I am writing this in my old age. I used to call myself Hokosai, but today I sign my self 'The Old Man Mad About Drawing." -- Hokusai

As an Art instructor, be it teaching drawing or paper making, we all need to use our hands, visualize and see things or maybe even take a walk to look, listen and think of possibilities.

Art is a connection to those things and it is a vital tool for our creativity as individuals. Learning just the basics of drawing can bring ideas and thoughts to imaginable being. Getting our hands dirty from paint, graphite or paper makes us feel alive. Seeing things in a fresh light can bring stimulating and exciting changes in our environment. And in ourselves.

I personally get excited and thrilled when my students get those Ah Ahhh moments. When after doing various class assignments they see progress and the possibilities. Their confidence increases, they feel excited about whats next and they look forward to what they will be able to accomplish as their skills increase.

Whether it's a child with their innocence and freedom to explore or the adult that begins again to have that freedom and take a chance to explore - this is what art does, this is what art is, and this is what I try to do as a teacher.
