Others enjoy Wiltshire’s gift of memory

(Continued)

Simply from memory, this man can draw each and everything he saw, from the exact number of windows and doors to the architectural designs on a particular building. He has done this in many big cities already, both in America and foreign countries. Take a nice long drink of your tea now, if you’d like. The man has a gift and it is gratifying that others are able to see and enjoy it.

Someone asked me the other day (amidst the Christmas rush) why I wasn’t writing about Kem anymore? The truth is that I haven’t seen much of her, but she did go to Florida for a vacation. Those of you who know her realize that her sense of humor is always close at hand, and I am planning on this when I see her soon.

— “Basic Drawing Class — Texture & Surfaces,” Jan. 7-Feb. 25 from 6:30-8 p.m. Does your drawing look bland and would you rather jazz it up a bit? Learn how to draw textures and enhance the surfaces of your drawings. You will learn how to do surface treatments with graphite, erasers and other tools to make your images pop. The class will focus on learning to create visual textures while using the elements of art and the other principles of design to create your own unique pieces of art.
