Howard Pyle: Crux of Instruction

If you like the American illustrator Howard Pyle and you’re looking for something to listen to while you paint, you might enjoy this reading I did years ago about Howard Pyle as a teacher. 

  Howard Pyle: The Crux of Instruction by James Gurney

I’d give anything to have been a fly on the wall of his summer school, as long as N.C. Wyeth wasn't walking around with a fly swatter.
