"Whether we are artists or not, we all seek a life that is filled with “more” - more creative pauses, more colorful relationships, more meaning. Everyone wants the secret to success and happiness. In my classes, I show students that they have to identify what thy are feeling in order to paint, that the quality of their production is not primarily about technique or copying. As artists, we paint from our hearts as well as our heads. “

Mary Whyte, An Artist's Way of Seeing
