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.

Self Portraits

Students in the Honors Drawing & Painting class have just finished up with their Self – Portraits. They have worked extremely hard over the last month and a half to complete these portfolio pieces. For most of these students this was their first ever full portrait. I would have to say I am very proud of all their improvements. Keep up the great work!
