Spring landscapes

This week we all have spring fever. The students, Mrs. Mary and myself are all looking forward to spring break week after next. So to celebrate this wonderful weather (and crazy pollen counts) we are using oil and soft pastels to create beautiful spring inspired landscapes. So keep the allergy medicine nearby and enjoy this wonderful weather while it last!

Lions in graphite

This week our students are continuing sharpening their drawing skills using graphite to draw lions. In addition they are using ebony pencils and erasers to explore some subtractive drawing techniques as well.


This week we are doing pandas in charcoal on black paper. There really isn't much to say except there are super cute and the students are doing a great job! One of my favorites this year.


This week our students are drawing chameleons. They are using oil pastels and tempera paint to make thier own scratch off art. This is a really cool technique that we really enjoy. The artsy term for this is sgraffito!

Self portraits this week

This week our students are doing thier own self portraits in tempera paint and oil pastels. It's always interesting to see how they see themselves. This will always be one of our favorite lessons. Next month we will be focusing on drawing skills!
