Spring Session! New Students

Student Photographer: Stephanie Shea

Today we looked at a still life. In the still life was old shoes, flowers in a case, a pitcher, bananas, apples and oranges in a bowl. You were encouraged to draw whatever you wanted. I drew the old shoes.

Portrait Collage

Student Photographer: Robby Aktins

This week in class we used shades to fill in shadows on portraits of ourselves. using different shades of color, we cut out pieces of scrap-booking paper and then glued the scraps together to make the picture complete. We matched the colors shade to the pictures shade and corresponded them so they fit together to finish the picture of ourselves.

So today is January 29th, obviously a Saturday, because we only meet on Saturdays. Today we worked with watercolors. In the beginning of class we did a little activity where we each started a painting, then after a minute we pass to the next person and they continue it. It was a lot of fun and pretty cool in the end. Then once we were done we compared pictures and talked about what they looked like. Then we picked to paint flowers or a sunset. Then we had to draw and paint it. It was a lot of fun and I'm pretty sure everyone had a good time!

Grid Technique for Drawing

Student Photographer: Stephanie Shea

Saturday the 22nd of January, we had our second weekly class of art, and like the first it was amazing! We drew these pictures in a grid. It was a pretty thrifty project. There were some times when the students would think that the pictures were going to turn out horribly but instead of quitting, they continued with their work and the art turned out wonderful.
