Week 6 of art class
This week students began practicing drawing techniques for their still life drawing. They learned several ways to check for accuracy and practiced these skills with the whole class and then with their individual table teams. This week was focused on composition and accurately placing the objects on the paper. Next week will focus on shading and finishing touches. They will begin their own individual still life after that and the goal is accuracy and realism. They will know all the tricks and skills to accomplish this goal!
