Emily, Emma and Kendall

We had a very lively class this week as usual:) These girls bring a lot of creative energy to the studio. We started class by drawing a still life. Before the artists started, I discussed “Space” as an Element of Art – positive and negative space. The artists drew the still life. I told the girls they couldn’t talk while they drew so they could really concentrate. I was so proud of them! They didn’t talk!!! We also discussed proportion as they drew. After drawing the objects, I had the girls divide the negative space into sections. In each section they used crayons and decorated each section with a different pattern. By doing this the objects are left white. They worked on this activity for about 45 minutes. Emily and Kendall worked on their nonobjective abstracts with the rest of the class time. Emma finished her nonobjective abstract. After Thanksgiving our next project is a Pop Art self portrait. Enjoy the pics:)
