Lively Bring-Your-Own-Object Drawing Session

Bring Your Own Object was the theme for an uber-creative morning of Level 3 drawing by our youth sketchers. Hannah’s iPod playlist woke everyone up and we rolled into studying the form and surface texture of objects. We also had assorted studio objects on hand as students sketched storyboard compositions and camera zoom-ins on the object. This was a fun, focused concept art class (several of our students are aspiring concept artists) that produced very interesting drawings. Shown above is Rena’s charcoal rendering of her friendly little creature from home.
