Michael Lamb's Class
It's all about having fun with art.......and everyone's an artist, really. Whether you're into drawing, film, pottery, collecting, theatre or whatever, whether you're a professional or just a "ham and egger" you're an artist. And don't take it too seriously, just enjoy your art for what it is. Most of us are lifetime "ham 'n eggers" in our own way so just use whatever art you like to have fun, inspire, ........and enjoy life to the fullest.

 
- Carpe Diem!
