retiring...

One of the kindest souls I've ever met, Hugh LeRoy has been a wonderful instructor, and I know everyone that's had the pleasure to know this artist, can only sing his praises. Hopefully he doesn't mind me putting this up here!

Hi Mike,

I was looking online for my old sculpture instructor Hugh LeRoy and found your post. Hugh was the very best instructor I ever ever had, and he helped at a time of deep sorrow in my life. He truly was so very kind to me and a wonderful teacher. Your drawing of him is beautiful. Catherine Meyers P.S. I love your blog!

Thank you Catherine, this is very much appreciated!

Hugh truly was a marvelous teacher that allowed each student to grow as an artist in his presence. He was also someone you could approach and talk to about anything, art or otherwise.

I was lucky enough to take three drawing classes with him before his retirement. It was a shame he left, but he deserved a break from York. Thanks again!
