Draw to Learn: Louden Nelson Sketchers Explore Materials

The fall semester saw a lot of excellent work by students at Louden Nelson Community School.

 

Sketchers tried their hand at a variety of different media including Prismacolor pencils, pastels, and charcoal.

 

Students also studied proportion grids, contours, and tonal values of faces. Above left is Melissa’s drawing of dog. To the right is Amanda’s drawing of a woman’s face.

 

As students advanced in their skills they delved into realism. Above left are Maria’s pastel drawings of a plant and flower. Above right are Melissa’s study sketches of the contours of a pumpkin drawn from real life.

Above left are Corey’s pencil and charcoal studies of an egret (positive/negative space lesson) and a fox (cross-hatch pencil technique). To the right are Rafa’s positive/negative studies of an egret.

 

Some students began animation character design. Above left is Rielly’s charecter sketch and to the right is Stormie’s tonal value concept sketch.

 

Above left is Michael’s 2-point perspective study sketch. Above right is Maria’s atmospheric perspective drawing.

 

Above left is Mayra’s pastel drawing after the artist Picasso. To the right is a page out of Arastas’ abstract art sketchbook.

And now… for all of our student drawings…
