Dragons in mixed media this week!

Starting off October in which we will be focusing on using mixed media we have begun with dragons. I have to admit this is one of my favorite lessons so far this year. In this lesson they are using colored pencils, oil pastels, and tempera paint. This has got to be my favorite time of the year. I hope all of you are enjoying it as well.

Watercolors with shells and starfish this week.

This week we are just having fun learning about watercolors and how they behave on paper. Also, how the level of water added to them really gives you different results. Most important how to let go and let watercolors do thier own thing. In the end this is sometimes how we get the best results. Not just with the paints!

Color mixing with Van Gogh this week

This week our students will be learning about mixing colors. For inspiration with are painting Van Gogh's Landscape with Carriage and a Train done in 1890. Not much of a name for a painting but a great work none the less! As always all of our students work is on our facebook page. Thanks guys and have agreat week. I am off to count ballots from our art show this weekend at Suwanee Fest.

Suwanee Fest was a blast!

Mary and I both had such a great time at Suwanee Fest this year. We were really proud to show off our students hard work. It was also great seeing so many of you there. We also asked anyone who wandered into our tent if they would like to vote for thier favorite piece from each age group. We were a little suprised to see that I will have somewhere around 500 ballots to count! Needless to say I will be announcing our winners a little later this week. Thank you again to everyone who showed their art and came out to see us. As always we are greatful for all of you guys.

 

Drawing is our focus in March!

Using a wide variety of mediums we will be focusing on drawing again in March. So far they have drawn some amazing elephants and this week and we are onto drawing barns. I know a lot of us think that drawing is just pencil. Well there are in fact a variety of mediums you should be exploring just like we are here at the studio. Again we are looking forward to seeing what our students do this month and we hope you are too.
