Observational Drawing Mid-Term Drawings

The ART 108 Observational Drawing classes have passed through mid-terms with flying colors and strong contrasts.

Student comment by Sabrina.

  • I remember taking a class similar to this once, but the past couple of classes have helped me improve on my drawing skills greatly. It has taught me to see the value in a different light. This class also covers more of the subject and talks about the mood of the piece that I never realized that I was accomplishing till now. What is also new to me is the style of light to black to light in a piece of artwork. Even though the class seems tedious sometimes it's help me in the long run making me have appreciation for the class and my work.
Teaching Reflection:
It's not fun to hear your class called tedious, but then look at the work.  Attention to light logic and composition is paying off in terms of student success.

Henry moving? Oh no!!!!

Henry may move out of town and out of the country.  
I will miss him so much if he does.  I just got a lovely DNKY street ankle-length denim skirt and some other very cool clothes.  Mostly what I get from visiting Henry is a dose of creative energy.  There will be a big hole in my Austin experience without Big Bertha's Bargain Basement.  If he moves to Paris then maybe I will see him once or twice more in my life!  What a change from a monthly recharge.
