Observational Drawing Summer 2008 Mid-Term Hall Exhibition
My students presented their three strongest drawings and an artist statement then selected and hung their work in the hallway while I graded their sketchbooks in the room. i gave them full artistic freedom to design the hall installation. Instead of the formal title I suggested they created a sign that says "Honoria's Gemz" they also hung an informal arrangement on a single backing and drew frames around the unmatted drawings. My classes have definitely bonded and are looking toward a strong second half of the semester.
