I am new to this site, but not new to the DTO program. I just transferred over from the old site. My wife gifts me this membership every year, so I had to wait for Christmas to transfer over. My mediums are graphite and pastels. My fine art drawings are all in graphite and I exhibit one per year in our local community art center. They are generally drawings of family and things closest to me. I am still very much a novice with pastels and have never exhibited a drawing in this medium. I augment the courses on this website with courses at the Charles Taylor arts Center in Hampton, VA. I know Mat talks about the great NY museums but I appreciate my little local art centers that only displays the artwork of local artist and has classes, small pizza parties, art trips to DC for the local artists.
