Week of December 12th-16th, 2016

The students are finishing up their Colored Pencil Animal Eye drawings this week.  They have chosen a frame for their piece and will be assembling it over the next 2 days.  On Wednesday, we will have the evaluation and critique on the project.  They have done a wonderful job with learning how to use colored pencils in order to create shading, texture and form.  They have, hopefully,  discovered that colored pencils can do more than just fill in a space!  

On Thursday, I will be introducing the Mid-Term Exam project.  They will have time on Friday and 1 or 2 days next week to start research and begin sketches.  I hope to introduce matting before we leave for break.  If we do not have time, I will introduce it one of the first days back after break.  They will need to mat their Mid-Term Exam.  I plan on having a few open studios when we come back from break to enable the students to do some of the work at school.
