Geoff Lasko: Teaching at Bemis ... one of the most rewarding experiences I have ever had

Member registration is underway for Bemis School of Art's winter/spring session of classes, and non-members can start signing up on Jan. 4. Here's the first of a series of blog posts from Bemis instructors.

Teaching art at the Bemis School is one of the most rewarding experiences I have ever had. There are few feelings that compare to seeing the light come on in someone's eyes or seeing someone make a breakthrough. There is a very special relationship of trust between the instructor and the student. I am so grateful to be given that trust and hopefully develop a friendship as well as a working relationship with my students. Art-making is a life long learning experience. We are all on the road to learning. Some are farther along than others, but there is no end to the road. I think that is the great joy of the art life.
