    Wayne Willis Art Exhibit

    The spirit of Wayne Willis can be felt with each exploding covey rise of Kansas quail. Willis, a Kansas Native Son, was considered by many to be the best quail painter of all time.

A Kansas hunter and conservationist, this man with a talent for art spent 60 years bringing to life his favorite subjects.

    How Street Art Fuels Linkin Park’s Mike Shinoda

    LAURA LING: Lincoln Park has achieved tremendous success. You guys are regarded as one of the most respected rock bands in the world. What do you think got you guys to where you are today?

We learned very early on that we never wanted to put anything on our record that we didn’t feel 100% confident of. LISA LING: Tell me about your solo project, Fort Minor.

    30TH ANNIVERSARY — Halsey Institute at the College of Charleston

    (horse clopping) (engine screaming) (horse clopping) (church bells ring) (engine whirring) – [Voiceover] I grew up here in Charleston and the art I was surrounded by was mostly things like landscapes and paintings of architectural landmarks, ducks.

My experience with the Halsey is that the shows here are unique to anything else you’re gonna see in Charleston and potentially anywhere. – The Halsey is a contemporary art museum, in Charleston, South Carolina.

What mistakes do you constantly see people making in drawing? Rushing. When I see people drawing… I’ve been teaching eight years now and I’ve seen so many different kinds of exercises, sketches and drawings and there is a difference between speed and rushing. Rushing is when they’re doing it not for themselves. They’re sketching and drawing for someone else and it’s structured, the homework.

    Michael Tomor: The Role of the Art Museum

    You know having been involved in museums now professionally in full time from was twenty-two years, I can say that the role of a museum in a community has changed dramatically and its function in any community larger small is to provide educational opportunities outside of the traditional classroom experience.

    How to Draw People : Using the Spiral Technique for Drawing

    Hi, I’m David Clemen on behalf of Expert Village and today we’re going to learn the basics of drawing.

Now this technique is basically to show you, give you a better understanding the three dimensions of the body and when you’re looking at something like my head, you’re basically, if you’re looking at it directly, you can only see this part, but my head goes all the way back to here.
