I am a teaching artist and I help students of all ages discover their artistic voice through drawing, painting, clay and mixed media. This blog is a place where I can post pictures from my various art classes and keep a visual record of the art projects that we do. It's a great way for me to keep track of projects as well as share class projects with parents and students. Please submit e-mail address below to follow me and keep up with students art work! Class offerings also listed below.
Basic color wheels created by beginning painting class
What a beautiful time of year! My beginning painting students enjoyed the sunny weather and did some sketching outside with chalk and oil pastels, then we came inside and mixed earth tone palettes and painted from our sketches. We talked about how to create shortcuts with brushstrokes- so instead of trying to capture all of the details of the trees we tried to capture the feeling or impression of the trees. We looked at some impressionism paintings and discussed the different artist's styles and how they used their brushstrokes.
