Summer Creative Drawing Class Projects

My Creative Drawing Class made some fantastic art this summer! Students in the creative drawing class range in age from 12-16 years old and have all been drawing with me for several classes and some students for several years! This is such a spirited and talented group of young artists and I enjoy coming up with new and challenging projects each week! In June, my dear friend and talented local artist came to my home and gave a talk to my creative drawing class about her painting process. You can find video from the talk on her blog.  Here are some photographs from a few projects that we did over the summer:
Figuring out shapes: Students practiced breaking down objects into shapes and created value charts to use for shading reference. 
Picasso's "Boy with a Pipe" gender flipped  by Josie 
Face Hacks: Students drew the other half of a face of choice, most are paintings by famous artists and several photographs. They turned out so fun!
Van Gogh's "Portrait of a Woman" modernized by hoodie, By Kassia

Van Gogh's "Old Man with Top Hat" and charcoal by Jaxon

Frida Kahlo photograph and pencil By Ruby

Caravaggio's "Boy with a Basket of fruit"also gender flipped  by Lexi

"Bucky Barnes" By Lily

 The summer highlight was a field trip to Heartland Humane Society where students drew cats, dogs, rabbits and birds! They did not want to leave ;)
