A thank you from portfolio student

Dear Kyle,

I apologize for not keeping in touch.
Your class changed my views on art in such a way that I now appreciate forms of art that I never bothered to notice before.
I had taken previous art classes where I was put in a room and was told to draw various objects over and over to develop technique. But it was tedious and made me develop a hatred for still life drawing.
But when you taught still life drawing, you encouraged us to go out and find something interesting that WE wanted to draw and left us to our own devices, giving us instruction only when we truly needed it and thus allowing us to discover our own style naturally.
I will always appreciate this gift that you've given me and I hope to see you again some day.
