On Monday, November 26, 2007 art students of Pearl River Central were treated to an oil painting demonstration by local professional artist, Milo Asche. Milo works mainly in Abstract forms, creating her expressive “ladies” on masonite. While at work, she spoke with the students concerning the pros and cons of both oil and acrylic painting. She also gave them several “life lessons”. She encouraged each student to always see through whatever plan he or she had chosen—even if it didn’t turn out the desired way. These life experiences might surprisingly lead to something better through experiences gained. She also discussed how art is useful in all areas of life and encouraged art students to keep their sketchpads close at hand and use them daily. Everyone was motivated to be the best at their skills—whatever they are, but that they must work at them every day. All students were told to keep journals—business notebooks or English journals to jot ideas which later could become important sources for ideas and projects. Both Milo and her husband, Mickey, live in Picayune. Their art is exhibited in galleries in Louisiana. Their website is mandmartstudios.com
