O'Keefe Organic Shapes
Process= We drew apples from observation using oil pastels on newsprint folded into 6 squares. Draw, take a bite, draw, take a bite, etc. We learned different blending techniques and concentrated on squinting to see color/value changes...THEN we made view finders from cardstock (with a little measuring thrown in!) and chose a composition.
So happy to see two students in particular who felt their main talent was basketball, begin to see themselves as artists too!
