|Everyone Busy at Work, minus one|
I was told upon arrival that I would be teaching a drawing class, so a time was set, and then changed and set again. Not everyone got the memo for the new time, but we had 7 hearty souls show up. I did a basic demo of using the whole page and not stick your drawing in the middle of the paper unless you drew a frame around it, think about how to compose and to look at the shapes not just the object.(s). I did not specify what to draw. We all then set to work, as you can see, facing different directions. Most of the class was willing to share their work for this blogpost. I was very pleased with what they did and went around one on one to give them more specific guidance. This was a short one hour time frame. Most had little or no art since HS or college, so I was very pleased with their work.
|Nice view of the boardwalk. We talked about values and their relationship and also to watch the direction of the sun on the umbrellas.|
|I talked with her about values. Her spatial relationships were pretty darn good but how to get depth and variety of darkness out of a pencil.|
|Dale got some good patterns going here in a very nice graphic display.|
|I love that she put in a dog and the life guard tower. This one was monotone when we talked so I showed her how to add depth for a feeling of distance and form.|
