I welcomed these two very talented young students into my studio. They are both so artistic. We started class with an Art History lesson – Early Italian Renaissance, “Madonna of the Book”, Botticelli, 1480-83. Bennett and Kate are like sponges because I question them when I am done with the Art History . They remember everything. The artists worked on their Pop Art self portraits. Bennett continued to paint his face. Kate traced her portrait through to good paper. She then started painting. They are both such meticulous painters. Kate and Bennett are doing a great job.
