||Clean9 - Flora Rosefsky—From "A Mother who Likes to Draw" to Artist||Flora Rosefsky on teaching: I think education is key. And I love teaching. It’s coming up with the right lesson. Once you come up with the right art lesson, the teacher should not be interfering with that student. In fact, I usually work on my own piece. I don’t look at their work until the end. The worse thing a teacher can do is put their hand on that person’s hand and say "Oh no no no no, put it that way..." Hummm. And they’re all different... Or "Oh no, this is the way you have to draw the circle." Oh, really? Or "No, the face has to be a certain color." Really? No.||10/1/2017||Free||View in iTunes|

I really enjoy Peachy Keen Pod. It’s exactly what I wanted and needed; Even in today’s decentralized and connected digital world, there is still a lot of focus on a few big cities in the art world. Peachy’s focus on Southern Artist is a breath of fresh air and spotlights a lot of interesting artist and their work. Nearly every episode puts me on to something or someone new. Love this podcast. And I also love the host’s way of hosting, its very obvious that she spends time in a classroom as a lecturer and that influence comes through her podcast.
