First Glance

Last night was the first night for my older students (5th -8th grade)to attend class. We worked on proportion, simple shapes, relationships of objects, and clean lines. I am attatching their first drawings utilizing what we talked about. I think they are fantastic! Hopefully next week I will have permission from the younger class to show off their pieces of art too. Enjoy!! Oh, and some teachers get apples, but really special art teachers get fresh flowers on the first day! thank you Brooke!

One more photo from the opening


Some long time friends stopped in for a suprise visit at the opening! What a treat! Most of these kids were babies when they were last together. We have 10 between us, but only 7 could make it.
