A few years ago, my son, Garrett won a series of squid hats at Six Flags and they are now mounted on each of his headboard posts- FUN! Anyway, he loves peeking in art class and visiting from time to time. Last week, he surprised them with his squids, which of course they had to try on and KEEP on for the remainder of of our class. So the end result was some pretty fun and funny snaps from class...while they were drawing a foxglove from the garden.
To begin our Mother's Day project; we started with blind contour sketches in their art journals,
then regular contour drawings-
And then once they were confident that they had mastered
this incredibly difficult subject; it was time to draw it again- large!
Once they finished their drawings, we cut tracing paper for them to make a copy.
We'll end up with two very beautiful finished pieces- one with my color specifications
and one with their own!
Tomorrow when it's time for class, we'll transfer the tracings and then begin adding color...can't wait!
Have a wonderful day!
