Teaching youth adult drawing and painting this week. We are starting out the class by learning to draw and observe without assumptions and preconceptions through blind contours! This is the work of a 12 year old student.
My students also learned about Greek amphoras this week! They made their own painted Greek amphoras representing a narrative or their favorite activity.
This week in my drawing and painting tent we learned about Faith Ringgold’s artwork and my students made painted “story quilts” inspired by their own memories and dreams.
I taught drawing and painting this past week to 1st, 4th, and 5th graders!
Visiting Karl Burkheimer’s incredible studio in Portland!
