Penguins

Last week in art class, we found inspiration in winter and drew a penguin family! The students drew the penguins with white pastel pencil on black paper. Then they used their white pastel pencils to shade in the lights and left the paper for the darks. They did a great job! Scroll through the slideshow to see the students at work.

Still Life

We set up a still life of a bowl with an apple, orange, and banana. I taught the kids the comparative method of drawing while studying our still life objects. Using the comparative method and our observation skills, the students drew the still lifes with graphite on canvas and then painted their canvases with acrylic paint. Colorful!
