Wouldn’t you know, they get their marker act together and it comes to an end. We move to charcoal next.
But before we do…
Here are samples of (larger than life) self-portrait work. They use media of their choice. This study moves students into understanding art is a form of communication.
Every portrait tells a story. We learn a lot about each other during this critique.
I include a few of the outdoor assignments. Students spend 4 days on the campus, drawing landscape.
…and there’s Susan, an advanced student who learns how to collage. She’s never done it before and this is practice. The image does tell a story but it’s not about birds, it’s about a fox.
Basically we cover texture, structure and depth. Next week is value.
