Community of artists

Just a few words to remark on my wonderful class and their welcome to three new students. It has to be intimidating to come into a room where twenty-one people are enthusiastically greeting each other and exchanging news, not to mention showing each other their recent work or talking about new ideas. But my Hithergreen group made me proud of them. The new students felt comfortable asking questions and when I left, two of them were still talking with a couple of "old-timers." To me this is very important in establishing an atmosphere conducive to learning--feeling accepted and encouraged by those you're working with.
