Honors Drawing & Painting Oil Pastel, Self-Portraits and Charcoal Skeletons

Term 2 brought some observational work to the Honors Drawing & Painting students. Through some long and deliberate sketchbook practice, the students were able to conquer some portrait fears as well as get acclimated with the use of oil pastel. Next students moved to another observational piece when studying the form of “Bucky” the Art Department skeleton and the use of black and white charcoal. This progression of observational work was tough on the students but we feel their finished work has shown great growth.
