Fish

This week in art class, the students used the sight-size method of drawing at the easels to draw a tropical fish in white pastel pencil on blue paper. Then they used oil pastels to finish their beautifully colored tropical fish. Awesome! Scroll through the slideshow to see the students at work.

Lighthouse

Drawing buildings in perspective can be difficult, but this week in art camp the students did a great job drawing 3-dimensional lighthouses in perspective!  They drew their lighthouses with graphite on watercolor paper.  Then they painted their lighthouses with watercolor paint and they looked fantastic!

Cast Drawing

For the past several weeks, my older students have been using their sight-size drawing skills to draw from plaster casts.  Cast drawing teaches them to see and draw shapes and 3-dimensional form.  They did their drawing and shading using vine charcoal and white chalk on toned drawing paper.  Impressive! Scroll through the slideshow to see their other cast drawing.
