art classes

I love creativity and imagination.  In art however, just as in writing or music or any other creative endeavor, ideas without skills just leads to frustration.  One of the things I am very blessed to get to do is teach art classes for the local homeschool coop.  Now that school’s back in session I thought I’d share some pics from a few students that were willing to share.

Drawing 1     These kids had the task of drawing an elephant upside down.  Turning their reference upside down forces them to draw what they really see rather than what they think they see.  These are just a couple of the students and their work.

Drawing 2 is a color class and they are just starting to work with the intricacies and frustrations of colored pencil so I only have a couple of photos of fruit to start.
