:star: Please read this to learn about this account and the nature of my gallery~ Thank you! :star:
The main thing to know is that this is NOT my main account, and thus I don't check it as often. So I apologize if it takes me a long time to respond to you~
Feel free to note me for my main account.

:bulletpink: This account has been created to connect and share art with my students. You can expect me to post a lot of our class projects and feature the artwork of my students frequently.
:bulletred: Feel free to ask me for any advice at any time! I finished my 7th year of college with two Bachelors of Art (Art Studio and Art Education) and a Single Subject Credential in Art. I'm located in California, so I had to complete the dreaded PACT. If you would like to learn about anything about becoming a teacher let me know - I'd be happy to help and let you know what it's like.
:bulletorange: If you would like a critique just let me know. Critiquing without bias is part of my job, and I am always willing to help any growing artists. I've done art since I was 4 years old thanks to my brother (who is also an artist) and have had some not-so-good art teachers during my career, so I know how long and arduous the art journey can be. It always helps to have some to talk to~
:bulletyellow: I will not be submitting my art to groups and will decline any requests. This is because I'm not too interested in making this account as popular as my other one. I really just want to keep it personable between those who would like help and my students.
:bulletgreen: I will NOT be submitting my full-resolution images to this account. It's just a decision I have personally made.
:bulletblue: If you see my art on another account, let me know before reporting (either me or the other person). This is a secondary account, so there WILL be resubmits of my art. There will be pieces on this account not found anywhere else though.
:bulletpurple: My favorites will be filled with great references and tutorials, so be sure to check it out!

Feel free to comment anytime (I'll try to reply quickly), and thanks in advanced for any favorites or watches!
