Students asked me to model

Yesterday was portrait day in Observational Drawing. The students took turns modeling. One group asked me to pose so I did. I was surprised that students felt comfortable enough to draw me.  I appreciate the trust that they exhibited by continuing to be experimental even when drawing an authority figure and trust these drawings are an indication that we are a learning community and are learning together rather than in a hierarchy of traditional teacher/student.

Here's what happened.
