Last Night for class

The high school girls finished up the Fall session last night with their first figure drawing. MacGyver was their live model. This is my demo in charcoal.democaitlinsamanthakatiehigh school girlsfinishing touches Drawing from life is very challenging, but they dove in head on and we are very proud of their accomplishments. They only had about 2 1/2 hours to spend on this. More drawing and painting from life in the next session.
